Good, nice service and food, ask the chef to recommend a daily specials course
Absolutely perfect presentation and flavour even in the kids meals. The lobster was heavenly and as a first time lobster eater me and mum loved it. Best birthday for mum yet!
I have been here a few times and every time this place never disappoints. Food is always great and so is the service! I highly recommend and I will come back again!
Wonderful experience, food and waitering. I would recommended to anyone who loves quality seafood and a quality dining experience. Well priced and great environment, great for families and formal nights.
This is a great little restaurant. The menu contains a bunch of interesting American food - ribs, burgers, etc. - but in our view the only reason to go is for the crab. You can get different local and imported crabs, depending on season and availability, and you combine your choice with one of the sauces. We love the Jonah's Claws (from Florida) and the Baltimore sauce, but that's just a matter of taste. The crabs come in a plastic bag (yes that's right), which they say keeps them hot for longer than putting them on a plate, and you get a big bib (essential) and gloves (optional) plus the usual implements for cracking the claws and extracting the meat. It's a lot of fun and absolutely delicious. Combine that with great, friendly service and a tiny but acceptable wine list and you have the makings of a great evening. There were five of us and we all had a blast - we'll be back.
One of Brisbane's best hidden secrets. The menu has a fantastic selection of local and imported seafood which is really worth exploring. Not into crab no problem, there are ribs, burgers, steak and grilled chicken and vegetables options to satisfy your hunger. The wait staff, especially Jon makes the evening very enjoyable. St. James Crabhouse & Kitchen has become my new favourite place to eat. PS Jonah Crab Claws in Singapore Chilli sauce is fantastic.
This little restaurant was amazing. The staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The food was so fresh and delicious and was ready really quickly. We had a friend with us who doesn't like seafood, they brought her out gloves and a bib, so she could share the experience, to eat her chicken wings. We had such a ball and laughed all night. Completely different way of cooking and eating seafood to what we are used to in Australia would really recommend it to any seafood lovers.
Good atmosphere, great food and very attentive staff! A big thank you to the manager for looking after us and being so attentive, and also the tips on how to eat the crab legs! This restaurant has become my number 1 option whenever I need to treat someone special or to celebrate a special occasion. Thank you for looking after my mum and made the night memorable, she rarely visit Australia and last time we saw her was over 3 years ago. Overall, definitely a place worth revisiting.
The food is first class and so is the friendly service. The prices are not low but I believe that we got good value for money. I would recommend the St James to anybody, especially foodies like ourselves. We had the Snow Crab Combo which contained Snow crab, Blue Swimmers (Sandies for Queenslanders), Red Claw and Mussels. I had the Singapore Chilli sauce which was not hot but very good. My gastronomical friend had the Citrus Beurre Blanc sauce which was very nice. A GREAT meal.
Pure and simple, the food here is great and the service was excellent. The prawn starter with garlic butter sauce was the stand out starter of the night. The lobster main share platter was nice but could be better if the lobster flesh hadn't been removed and buggered around with a light mayo type sauce and then placed back in the shell. The rest of the lobster platter was great. The crab share platter was the best main of the evening and had a decent amount of crab meat. We will definitely be back to try the ribs and have another prawn starter.
