The Verdict

The Crab Shack crew are seafood fiends, and know exactly how to do it justice. The Crab Shack has recently moved around the corner, find it in the spot that was previously The Culpeper and tuck into an all-new menu including $2 oysters and $5 beers and wines between 4pm and 7pm every day of the week. Get a taste of the ocean via fish, prawns, mussels, lobster, and giant pots of crab—grab yourself a bib and prepare to get messy!

If seafood’s not your thing, they’ve also got hearty meat, chicken and veggie options, plus almost every beach-related cocktail under the sun (think Blue Lagoons and Piña Coladas).
