Three times now and they have had to discount the prices of meals served because of below-standard quality. Three times & we drive over an hour to dine there.

Great food, great staff, friendly atmosphere. Great selection of local seafood caught by the Hursey family, processed onsite and served upstairs in the restaurant. Also a good selection of local wine.

Lunch at Hursey's is good. The meals are huge so I tend to have an appetiser and a dessert. The crème brulee is delicious, as is the baby abalone appetiser. Others have said how they enjoy the small portion of fish.

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)
