We thank you for both your observation and your confession! It is a strange phenomenon that seafood eaters (or other cuisine aficionados) discount all else in their pursuit of the gastronomical holy grail. It's a little like Holden vs Ford or Porsche vs Lamborghini...they're all...More

We dined here two nights in a row. The crayfish was offered at $35 for a half including chips and salad. What an absolute bargain! We also enjoyed their fresh fish. I recommend choosing the half serve especially if you have a starter. The portions...More

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)
