Shaw's Crab House Offers Summer Lobster Specials
Chicagoist Daily: By Amy Cavanaugh in Food on June 24, 2012

June 2012- Chicago, IL - If you missed National Lobster Day earlier this month and all the specials around town, you can still get in on the crustacean action.

Through July 31, you can head into Shaw's Crab House for a New England lobster boil, which is $36.99 per person, with a minimum order of two. The three-course dinner includes clam chowder or lobster bisque, a one-pound whole Maine lobster, corn on the cob, boiled red potatoes, coleslaw, and a slice of key lime pie.

If breaking down a lobster isn't your thing, there are other special menu items available, including lobster maki, a lobster roll, and lobster cocktail.

Get Your Lobster Fix Tonight At Acadia

Acadia has become one of our go-to restaurant recommendations. It's beautiful, quiet, close to the loop and you can always find parking. Even better, it's got a bar with a separate menu for those who don't want to spend a fortune. Today, to celebrate "National Lobster Day," Acadia is running a special deal on their acclaimed lobster rolls.

The deal costs $18, and is only available in the bar. For your money, you'll get the lobster roll, homemade salt and vinegar chips and a beer - an Allagash White from Portland, Maine. Chef Ryan McCaskey is very serious about his seafood. Shrimp and lobster are imported from Deer Isle, Maine, and he even brings in the lobster rolls via FedEx from a small market in Maine.

If your Friday is free, consider a trip to Acadia. It's got a great vibe for dates, and you can get out for under $40.

Acadia is located at 1639 S. Wabash Ave.
