The Singapore Chilli sauce is fantastic but it's hot so be warned. We're so lucky to live near the habitat of the Australian Blue Swimmer crab, they must sell for double over-seas, which is why it's the pick over the stuff from Alaska. They're great tasting and comparatively plentiful in the strange bag the meals are served in.. I said bag. It's a special serving bag that contains your chosen crabs, sauce and the sides you ordered (order all 3, it knocks a dollar off the price and it's only 5 bucks). I don't know about the bag - I think I would prefer something more conventional. Donning plastic gloves and apron protects your clothes but makes you look funny and it's strange licking your finger once they're on.

I would probably go again as that Singapore Chilli sauce is out of this world.

We were lucky enough to get great service, however the food was hit and miss. The oysters were a MAJOR disappointment. The rest of the food was good, but it wasn't good value.
I am glad we tried the place, but we wont be back.

The food is always incredible! And the staff always greet you with a smile and are great with kids too. We can't wait for our next meal at King Crab Co!

Service was absolutely amazing. However, the freshness and value of the crabs were a little disappointing. That being said, the fried calamari and beer battered chips we ordered were super tasty, would visit again for those!

Wow , was disappointed and will never be back.
Obviously there are a lot of people out there who don't know what good food tast like.
Far from freash , is alway going to be a difficult task to import seafood from the other side of the planet.
I understand how hard that would be , but if you are going to the effort to do it do it right !
My advice is to stick to local if you can't get it to resemble some kind of freshness.

There was nothing wrong with the meal, it was very nice but for the price i don't think it's really worth it. You can buy more King Crab from a Seafood Market for way cheaper than what you get here. But i understand you are paying for the whole evening so it was nice.

Moreton Bay bugs were apparently fresh but they tasted terrible...hardly any meat on them too. No mud crabs available either. Would never go back.

Great service, delicious food, good ambience. If you're on a first date, I wouldn't recommend getting crab as it's very messy! Delicious, but messy ;)

If you want to eat crab, this is the place to come. You can get a big serve of Alaskan King Crab or Alaskan Snow Crab for $75/$50 at the time of writing this. The crab comes served in a wonderful sauce of your choosing and is exploding with meat. If you're afraid to bring your non-seafood friends here, no worries, there's also a wide range of burgers, steaks and ribs to keep 'em happy!

The service has always been exceptional, last time we were very well cared for by Lisa and Julia!

We are still in heaven from that night. The food is superb!!! We ordered the Alaskan King & we couldn’t recommend it enough. It was juicy & sweet with some saltiness. Such a perfect combo!

Food was good but i compared it to another crab restaurant in Brisbane and came out second. They need to bring back a cujan sauce and work on their fries. Crab was fresh and atmosphere was good. I would go back.

food took over an hour, waitress was friendly and apologised when we paid.

lobster roll had less then a 1/4 of lobster tail, for $32 was closer to a lobster flavoured hotdog with lettuce. couldn't work out how this took over an hour to open up the fridge, get some cold lobster meat. mix it with mayo and put it in a hotdog bun and add a piece of lettuce.

A little bit of feedback.
Very deceiving menu and very disappointing. We went tonight expecting a whole Alaskan king crab only to be served 4 claws for $75. It would be great if you make it clear in your menu what is served. On the positive side your waiter Rosan I believe to be the name provided amazing service.

Too bright in there — no ambience
3 king prawns was little for the price charged ( check your cogs and stick to food costing % )
No music
No beer special , ask your beer rep for promo ie; buy 3 kegs get 2 free then put as promo same g.p on special people will order more beer — higher turnover
Need chowder ...

Food and service was fine but not amazing. Ceviche was cut really large and lacking in flavour/marinade. Waffle fries slightly undercooked and not crunchy, crab was beautifully cooked but Singapore chilli sauce not well balanced. Large mud crab claws could have been pre cracked for ease at table. Serving the crab in a plastic bag does not add to the experience and is annoying to eat from. The crab cakes were quite sloppy in the centre. Staff were friendly and service was timely. I feel this place could be great but just not there yet.

We had a booking for 10 people and the service was great. Food was amazing we had an assortment from the menu and everything tasted amazing. There was a good selection of drinks as well. We paid a fair price for the food that we experienced. The service was great, we didn’t have to wait too long for drinks or food after we ordered. Overall experience was great would definitely recommend.

Small servings make it expensive. The seafood chowder in a cob loaf is more like a hamburger roll and could be any chowder really. $22 entrée for 3 prawns......it is nice food but not as special as the prices would indicate.

Food was utterly disappointing. The crab was definitely not fresh at all.

Highly not recommend this place. View is nice and that’s the only redeeming feature.
