Calling all seafood lovers! You can trust me when I say that you want to know about my latest Kloof Street find. The Deckhouse Crab Shack & BBQ is an uber-trendy spot inspired by an American-style beach house, and serve up some of the very best shellfish and BBQ in the city!

I recently paid them a visit on a cold, rainy Friday evening with a small group of friends. Luckily, we were able to secure a table on the enclosed “deck”, where it was warm and cosy. To start off, we ordered up a bottle of house white wine. Our welcoming waiter then made a couple of great recommendations on what to eat.

On the menu here, you’ll find a number of interesting seafood dishes, including crab cakes, shrimp nachos, shrimp popcorn, soft shell crabs, and fish and chips. You’ll also find some tasty BBQ options, such as NY strip steak, chalmar beef fillet, dinosaur ribs, grilled chicken gun, and burgers.

Everyone at our table decided to order something different. I decided to go for good old fish and chips. Our food took quite some time to come out, but we weren’t in much of a rush, so it wasn’t a bother. My fish was delicious – I loved the batter! 

After finishing every last mouthful on my plate, I was lucky enough to steal a taste of what some of my dinner companions were having, and am happy to report that the grilled calamari steak, seared tuna burger, and cheese ‘n pineapple burger were all just as tasty as my dish.

All in all, my friends had a great meal at this new establishment. While the service could’ve been more efficient, the food was yummy and the ambiance was comfortable and laidback. The next time you’re in need of a seafood fix, go and check this spot out, Darlings!
