King Crab Co.
There’s no better combo on the Coast than water views and seafood. And fortunately for us, The King Crab Co. which opened its doors just last week in Main Beach, has it in spades.
The US-style crab shack is no dive bar though; the interior is light, airy and ultra ‘grammable. Think polished concrete floors, a long marble bar, high ceilings, nautical pendant lights, open brass shelving and stunning views of the marina, complete with multi-million-dollar yachts.
The menu is generous and no, it’s not just seafood, although that’s definitely the star of the show. You can gorge on burgers like the Signature Cheesy with 100% wagyu beef patty served with onion, pickles and American cheese.
For the seafood lovers, you have to try the lobster slider, the 1kg garlic mussels and the garlic butter crab with fire roasted cauliflower. And, if you really want to push the boat out then order the Queensland mud crab, served whole and on ice with tarragon infused butter and salsa verde. You’ll be provided with a bib and all the tools you’ll need to smash your way to the good stuff.
Drinks-wise these guys have you sorted with spritz on tab, a bunch of whites, reds and sparkling on offer as well as local beers like Stone & Wood, Balter and Bighead.
