We all had a wonderful time at Rock Lobster. Being coeliac, I very much appreciated the knowledge of the waitress. I felt confident that she knew that my food could not be cooked in a fryer with items containing gluten. She was more than happy...More

Went for dinner as a family here on the first night of our Port Stephens vacation. The service was super friendly and helpful and the seafood was beautifully fresh and generously portioned. Best meal we had for the whole stay!

Can’t go wrong. Exceptional service. Amazing food. Perfect location. Hot seafood plate for 2 was perfect. Topped off with chocolate soufflé which was Devine. We will definitely recommend a visit.

WOW. What beautiful seafood. By far the salt and pepper calamari was the best I’ve ever had. Melt in your mouth. Great service and friendly staff. I’ll be back!!

Went along last night to spoil the family. And we got spoilt. Great food, great staff, great location. Locals this place has turned around, tourists enjoy your holiday eating like we did.

It was a hot day but we sat outside for lunch and it was very pleasant. Salt and pepper calamari was nice and the seafood marinara was great. Service was friendly and timely. Admittedly there wasn't many people.

What a great location, right in the heart of the Marina. But sorry to say that the food is just average for the prices they charge. Expected great local seafood but just got glorifed fish and chips

Positioned on the top floor at the marina, Rock Lobster provides great views of the harbour. The staff were welcoming and friendly. Was impressed with the generous helping of seafood in the linguini marinara. Reasonably priced and offers BYO.

Yes they normally have it at market price ( usually moray or fresh with lemon). They also have good selection for other seafood. Recommend seafood platter ( enjoy a splurge).
