“Great lobster and huge quantities of meat” are the order of the day at this American-style crabshack and BBQ, a King’s Road, Chelsea fixture for 31 years, and its more recent offshoots in Covent Garden and Canary Wharf. With the in-house blues and rock bands, they’re ideal party venues for the whole family – “my children were vastly impressed by location, food, view – everything!”.

“Good basic BBQ and fried foods” plus “similar lobster and seafood options” (and “live music is another plus”) have kept this gen-u-ine American crabshack an always-packed-and-noisy feature of the King’s Road for 30 years (it was founded in 1991). “Good-sized portions” and good times are also reported at its newer, if less-established ,spin-offs in Covent Garden and Canary Wharf.

“Good basic BBQ and fried foods” plus “similar lobster and seafood options” (and “live music is another plus”) have kept this gen-u-ine American crabshack an always-packed-and-noisy feature of the King’s Road for nearly 30 years. “Good-sized portions” and good times are also reported at its newer, if less-established ,spin-offs in Covent Garden and Canary Wharf.

“Guilty-pleasure comfort food” served in a “crowded but fun atmosphere” have made this “so authentically American” BBQ and crabshack a King’s Road fixture for 27 years (and it underwent a major upgrade in 2018). Now with offshoots in Covent Garden and Canary Wharf, the outfit can seem “very corporate” and is “probably best for large groups or office parties”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Great price for a good seafood meal - portions could be slightly bigger. Lots of fun with live music and fun waiting staff"
