How to class up your dinner on a budget this month

Feeling a little unenthused by your usual dinner plans this month? Want to be shellfish for once, and treat yourself to an indulgent meal – even if it’s not a special occasion? Well we’re going to tell you about a deal that definitely won’t leave you feeling crabby: Fix Restaurant at the Port Office Hotel is dishing up ½ a Canadian lobster for $6 with any main meal all throughout September! We know you’re saying ‘oh my cod!’ in shock – finally a chance to try the king of the sea without the king-sized price tag. Best of all, you can pair it with some of Brisbane’s tastiest gourmet pub fare, not to mention a few killer cocktails! port office lobster brisbane 2Stick to the seafood theme and get your tender lobster alongside fresh market fish, or go surf ‘n’ turf and match it to juicy a steak from the char grill. Either way, you’ll definitely want to sip on a Caption’s Passion with spiced rum, triple sec, passionfruit and pineapple while you dine – unless you just want to go all out with a bottle of wine or two. So if those little ‘POA’ initials have always scared you off ordering the lobster, now is of-fish-ially the time to give it a go. Probably more than once – did we mention you can get your claws on this deal all day, every day until the end of September? Head to the Fix Restaurant at the Port Office Hotel at 40 Edward Street in the CBD and get hooked on lobster!
