  • Had a lovely evening out. I had the spicy crabs, which were cooked very nicely with good flavour. My cocktail was fun. And the service was excellent. Only downside was the uncomfortable seats!

  • Good food and good service. Enjoyed the enclosed semi-outdoor seating. Really wanted to win a stuffed crab toy from the machine but it was just too challenging!

  • Good atmosphere. The crab cakes pulled me in. Nice serving, staff, decor, atmosphere. Crab cakes whilst quite tasty were not overly loaded with crab which was my expectation/memory of them from USA. Still enjoyed them :-)

  • Went exclusively to try the crabs. They were horrible. Two crabs were on the menu... snapper crab and catch of the day. Decided to go for the snapper crab at first. Meat is chunky but believe it or not, its almost tasteless. Then thought that, hey being the crab shack, there must be something good. So the crab of the day was ordered. It was even more disappointing! The meat was soft and mushy. Like totally not fresh. Quality of crabs is really bad. No wonder they had to serve regular burgers, pasta and taco at their crab shack. But wait... their taco was bad too...

  • Clearly from reading the reviews you have to pick the day to go eat there Wellington Crabshack BEST ever!! Auckland I would never go again and that was definitely the consencious from all the other's in the party I was with The service was exceptionally slow and the restaurant was by no means near full!! We waited for ages after we were seated for the waitress to come back to us to take our order The food was terrible! ! By no means was the chicken a "half " as stated on the menu and it was cold The crab was tasteless and watery My salad was the worst one I have ever had! Overrated and would not recommend it to anyone Sincerely hope the reviews are read by those who are thinking of eating there prior to them actually going! !
