King Crab Co


King Crab Co in Bulimba is a casual American style crab house and bar that is one of Oxford Street’s dining hotspots, perfect for couples, groups and families.

The fourth crab house to open in Brisbane, King Crab Co is the place to get messy with bibs and gloves while tucking into succulent crustaceans as well as other traditional seafood dishes.

Beer on tap includes Kirin Magumi and Little Creatures pale Ale whilst bottled beers include international faves like Heineken, Asahi and Corona along with Australian craft beers by Stone and Wood and Young Henrys, while wine ranges up to bottles of Veuve Clicquot.

Nice to know – King Crab Co is child friendly, with brown paper table covers designed to get messy, high chairs and a kids menu of fish fillets or chicken tenderloin. Children will also love watching the white ‘tablets’ provided magically dissolve and expand in the water bowls to refresher towels.

Need to know - Not to worry if you haven't experienced crab house dining before - the staff will help you get bibbed and gloved up and instruct on using the utensils.

The menu may have changed since our visit.
