Only one negative comment - Once we arrived and were seated we were told that part of the menu was not available.
Everything was good except for the food value. It was a bit expensive.
Great service; wonderful food. Can’t wait to return to the establishment
Good food. Excellent service. A real treat especially for the family :)
Have been to Grab-a-Yabby three times now and each time has been excellent. The most recent time I visited it was when I took my whole family for my mum's birthday on a Friday night. We all ordered mud crabs and the food came out within a reasonable time and our waitress was really great, always making sure everything was ok and exceeding our expectations. The mud crabs were delicious, everyone was happy with the sauces they ordered - when you ask for hot, they give you hot! They also catered for my two year old nephew and made us feel very welcome to bring little kids. It is definitely a place for the whole family. My mum received wine on the house and my brother in law received a shot glass for finishing some extremely hot lava wings. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, the food is messy but it's supposed to be! And the service is excellent, with a friendly wave goodbye at the door. Can't wait to go back.
What a fun experience we had! I love the idea of something different and the fact that you are given bibs, a pair of gloves and a bucket before your dining experience means you know you are in for some fun! We ordered the yabbies with the Grab a Yabby special sauce and the fisherman's basket with the Grab a Yabby special sauce. Both dishes were awesome however the standout was the bay bug on the fisherman's basket, it was so juicy and so sweet. When the food first came to our table I must admit I though 'Where's the rest of it?' as the dishes looked quite small but we ate it all and were satisfied by the time we had finished our meal. The food is expensive and it's definitely not a restaurant I'd visit often due to the high prices but it was definitely a great experience. The waitress we had was really knowledgeable and lovely too which always helps.
Food is good as was the service (but then again we were the only customers at 7pm on Thursday night. Seafood looks good and perfectly cooked - probably nicer without the sauce. Serving is quirky to the point of sillyness - Fishermans basket served in a plastic bag - you are given plastic gloves and a plastic bib and the plate is the paper table cloth (though they did give us a plate on request. So basically if served on a plate with a finger bowl to wash hands in this place would be great. Prices are also reasonable for what is served
Food was very nice, especially the appetizers; but a bit over-priced. Waitresses were nice , but no utensils came out w food. Steak meal no fork. Rice no spoons or forks either. We had to ask for them . They cleared out table of all gloves & utensils but we had more food to come & by the time they asked us if we needed gloves, we had already finished. Restaurant was quiet . 1 staff member. was cleaning & chatting to other 2 staff members. I wouldn't go back purely on pricing. Just wanted to see what it was all about . For the $310 we spent there ( 4 adults & 2 kids), we would have had a better seafood feast @ a Chinese Seafood restaurant.
We had a delightful experience for Rachel’s birthday at grab a yabby! Donna’s service was very friendly and personable and she helped us decide on our food which was well beyond our high expectations. All of the other staff were also very friendly and helpful and Rachel really appreciated her birthday ice cream. Thank you we will definitely be back for our next special occasion
On arrival at 2pm the place was completely empty so was a bit unnerving however your waitress was lovely! Unfortunately the food was just ok and very expensive for lunch cafe menu. We went for the mud crab only to discover it was $90 for a one and half pounder. We then wanted the beef and that was not available. I think that the prices might be 5* restaurant prices but the menu is not for sure and the food we received whilst was nice enough were again very small portion sizes for the prices 😕 Sad because we could see the great potential for it to be an awesome place....it just isn't presently sorry...
