The only real negative was the cold air that kept rushing through the gaps around the windows and doors.

It was also overpriced, they have really increased their prices. The tables outside had old plates all on them, so there was flies. The entire time we sat there, four tables had not been cleared with their dirty plates. The waitress was cleaning inside where no one was sitting or just standing at the bar (she was flirting with the barman and more concerned about that) Been there before lockdown and loved it- we will never return as it’s standards have dropped.

The prices are extortionate for the amount of food you get. The crab was tiny and overcooked, you no longer get any bread or corn unless you pay another 10-20 bucks on top of the mediocre crab. And if you don’t pay for the sides, you can’t enjoy mopping up the sauce which is the only way to enjoy the meal since the main boil is lacklustre and unfulfilling. In addition, they didn’t have all the sauces advertised and the service is terrible. Won’t ever be going back. This place used to be great and unfortunately has gone down the toilet.

We expected something more outstanding. Sand crab was delicious, side dishes not so much. I would have loved the corn on cob and boiled potatoes a bit charred, coleslaw not this salty. Overall a good experience.

We had booked to be seated inside however once we arrived were told there were no tables available so had to sit outside by ourselves in the freezing wind. After 40 minutes we were finally able to move inside so we thought things were looking up...until we released we had waited an hour and a half for our main dish. We ended up getting a refund and leaving feeling very unsatisfied. The food was tasty but the service ruined the entire experience. Management need to invest time into training their staff. Definitely wouldn't recommend to anyone unfortunately.

The food was delicious, get the chilli clams and the old bay biscuits and dip the biscuits in the chilli clam sauce, you will not regret it.

Just. But if you're over 45, it *is* Winter and the wind is blowing like a gale up your end (sic) with a heater on the other side of the courtyard, well...it's unpleasant. We thought we'd be dining inside. No such luck. Anyway...we ordered crab cake (crumbed, fried, salty), chowder (diced spuds fought the seafood for real estate in the bowl), spanner crab (we fought the crab for a tiny amount of meat), and KFC (truly!) with waffles & maple syrup, a tempura-like coating deep fried so the chook was slightly underdone (not badly, but pink). Standout was the Tour Travers rosé from a limited wine list and fries - crunchy, hot, soft inside. Now the bad news. Decor was dreadful & on the cheap: shack it certainly was. 4 pages of the Herald-Sun paper was the tablecloth, the tables & chairs were beach-house wood slat furniture, with a wobbly table (which got fixed, thanks to staff), the plates were enamel dishes which were old & chipped & sadly not enough serviettes for crab combat, even with a bib (attractive!). The courtyard looked drab & 2nd-hand, not fun as it should have been. Staff were friendly & attentive (tho we're not all *guys* all the time!!) so they earned their $ that night. Summary: not cheap, not comfortable & not clever. For $85/head I thought we didn't get value or ambiance. It was more a café than restaurant & despite the name, the quality of venue & food should have been better. Nice concept, below par execution.

Our waitress was very inexperienced and rude. We were the first customers in the store and she placed us on a wonky table less than an arms distance to the next guest. She spilled an entire jug of water all over my girlfriend and her phone and took it away without asking her permission to do so. I would have been understanding with the events but she gave us little to no apology.

We didn’t know we have to get a Easter set menu, I’m pretty sure it’s not us only, there’s a couple sat there didn’t even know as well. The food wasn’t that great small portions and very light seasoning.

But this last experience was just not good. We ordered our usual crab boil with garlic and old bay butter but it was so salty, we couldn't finish it. We usually use the delicious corn bread to soak up that juice, but not this time. The mussels were under-cooked, I couldn't finish them. The crab wasn't very nice either, which made us sad, because we love the mussels and crab so much. Even my lemonade was too sour to drink. My wife's Arnold Palmer was super tasty and our waitress was super helpful and friendly. Overall, this dining experience was not the best, this time.

Can't believe you can get such great crab inner city! I would highly recommend getting the crab boil with all the trimmings AND the corn bread or whatever bread is on the menu at the time - you'll need it to mop up the liquid gold in the bottom of the dish. Good service - could have been a little more present, but lovely all the same
