We enjoyed dinner one night in the restaurant. Our meal was reasonably priced and we didn’t have to wait very long. With the sun directly in your eyes, they have blinds on the windows so I can’t say what the view was like....but the staff,...More

We were told we should book the restaurant because it would be busy. It wasn't because they turn over diners with poor food. We ordered a dozen fresh oysters ($30) which were good, but our mains of sea scallops in a curry sauce ($32) and...More

We could have eaten here every day! Lovely crispy chips in beer batter, perfectly cooked prawns, stripy trumpeter & calamari. 5yo loved it! Wish we could have got in for dinner & lobster.

This place sells fresh seafood, which is one of the economic staples for Stanley. However, we ordered a seafood platter. The platter cost $120 - it was large but the servings were not all that big, and some of them were meats, not seafood. This...More

Yeah it was unusual. Sorry I have taken so long to respond. I don't know that we would go back unless reviews became more consistent

Hursey Seafoods, based in Stanley Tasmania, is a major catcher of the renown Southern Rock Lobster (crayfish). Patrons can purchase a range of seafoods; wholesale, takeaway or dine-in for lunch or tea. In 1974 James Snr and Valerie Hursey relocated from Dover (Sth East Tasmania) to Stanley (Nth West Tasmania). In 1987, to complement a growing company fishing fleet, a commercial factory/takaway/dine in premises was established as a memorium to James Snr and Valerie's son, Patrick, who was lost at sea attempting to rescue an adventurer, rowing across Bass Strait. In June 2015, the property was extensively renovated and now seats 100 diners, overlooking the bay and nestled under the Stanley Nut. Hursey Seafoods' fleet of nine vessels catches Southern Rock Lobster, Giant Crab, Stipey Trumpeter, Gummy Shark, flathead and other local reef fish. Lobster is retained live in sea tanks on premises, which ensures supply all year and provides consumers with the very best taste. Hursey Seafoods is open every day, apart from Christmas, for lunch and dinner. Takeaway open: 11.00 AM to 7.00 PM Sun - Thu, 11.00 PM to 7.30 PM Fri & Sat Restaurant open: 12.00 PM to 2.30 PM (seated by) & 5.30 PM to 8.00 PM (seated by)
