Miss Katie's Crab Shack
Miss Katie's is the original Crab Shack! Darn good crabs and tasty fried chicken!
Easygoing crab house with quirky decor, making Southern-style seafood, fried chicken and burgers.
Miss Katie's Crab Shack is on the move for a 4th time, previously at North Melbourne's Public Bar, Rochester Hotel in Fitzroy and Ding Dong Lounge our favourite crab now comes to a new home at 325 Smith Street Fitzroy.
Everytime we've eaten at Miss Katie's we've enjoyed every single dish. It's not novelty food but seriously good tucker. We read reviews and shake our heads. People complaining about zip.. crab was small (wtf.. crabs are small), not enough seasoning (watched too many cooking shows), blah blah blah, eat and enjoy the good food and ambiance wannabees.
Chicken and waffles, absolutely amazing. I never really understood how these dishes compliment each other so well but this place absolutely nailed it!
'It's about showcasing Australian produce and not mucking around with it too much,' says Marron. Until it's on the plate, that is, where 'mess-making' is encouraged. And yes, she says, marron will be on the menu soon.
Miss Katie's works on so many levels. If you think an American theme restaurant is not for you, then come for the well-priced seafood. If seafood isn't your thing, come for the food anyway. But if you think you're too cool to wear a bib, keep walking.
Miss Katie has a thing for seafood - and so will you after you try these crabs.
If there's any feast primed for spring evenings, it's Katie's Southern-style menu of crab, fried chicken and seafood-heavy snacks.
As always, the kitchen serves some of the best seafood in Melbourne, and the tap beers, cocktails and outdoor courtyard-complete with nautical decor (ahoy!)-makes it one of the best bars in Melbourne if you're an al fresco drinker.
Don't let the rowdy, kickback atmosphere deceive you. Miss Katie's Crab Shack is cleverly conceived, shrewdly managed and delivers on all fronts. One of the finds of the year.
