Get ready to shell-ebrate!

The Crab Shack has reopened on a brand new seaside site, a stone’s throw away from the original Princes Wharf spot and now even closer to the sunny side of Auckland’s viaduct.

Nip off during lunch for a clawsome time with an all new menu and delectable daily deals.

Start by chowing down on a plate of oysters or chicken wings, for just $3 a piece. Available between 4pm and 7pm every day of the week.

With plates big and small, try the tuna poke or crab cakes with pea guac, sour cream and lime for a light bite, or tuck into the skillet crab mac and cheese with fontina, mature cheddar and chilli for a fitting mid-week feast. Or say ‘shell yeah!’ to an entire bucket – whether it be king, mud, snow or soft shell, the choice is all claws.

Opt for something less crabby with mussels and clams, then pick from any of the five sauces for a faultless finishing touch.

Swap a bucket for a sarnie and get on a roll with either the chipotle prawn, classic crayfish and prawn or even Nashville hot chicken – the best thing since sliced bread. .
