The Crab Shack, Auckland Reviews

  • We stopped in here for dinner on our first night in Auckland and were sure glad we did. The service was fantastic, especially our waitress (I think her name was Mel) who was warm, friendly and very attentive. The food and drinks were excellent as well, in particular the Black Magic Woman cocktail and the mixed mussels/clam 1kg scoop with white wine sauce. The servings are generously sized and after a starter, main & side each we had no room for dessert.

  • Good place to have seafood. Clams were fresh and tasty. Steak was cooked right. Plenty of seats. Good selection of beer on tap. Even had TV for us to watch Saturday night rugby. Table host was friendly, but waitress did not look too happy, otherwise would have given a five star.

  • Good food. Service a little slow to get table service and drinks. Chefs did an awesome job. Atmosphere ok. Slightly noisy during peak time of 7pm. Great for kids including young kids and they have a kids menu. Crab not so good if you are used to premium fresh crab in Singapore as their crab is frozen and thawed so the meat breaks up into little pieces like threads which doesn't occur with fresh cooked crab. Hey it takes the same I'm just a crab snob and like the best and buy the best.

  • Be prepared to get messy when it takes a good 2-3 hours to devour this wonderful seafood! I have been there plenty of times and have ordered crabs from the pot. The crab of the day is the easiest one to eat.🦀🦀🦀🦀 It's garlic chilli butter and parsley combination is so good that you would crave for using the sauce as a dip for a whole loaf of bread. 🍞🍞And, their Australian Spanner Crab is huge! It is extremely meaty and flaky. It needs a bit of work whilst eating as it is time consuming to eat this guy. It has bone segments in the entire crab which makes the job tougher. Their cocktails are a must to have. Do give it a try.🍹🍸They have some very good looking attendants who are just as good with their wonderful customer service. Please find a good amount of pics attached of their dishes below.

  • I do not know why this place was so busy. Maybe it was the environment. Me and the wife went to this place excited about the buzz. It was so busy that we had to wait for an hour to get a table. Which we would not have minded if the food was good. Unfortunately this type of food me and the wife could have made a lot better at home without the hefty price tag.
