Description: One of Hobart's iconic restaurants and is popular with both locals and visitors to Hobart alike. We are a family run restaurant and we have been operating since 1979 offering the diner a truly unique experience and very fresh and tasty Tassie seafood and meals. The restaurant is world renowned, features in many global travel guides and is always popular – so reservations are advised! Open 7 days a week with parking out front.

The restaurant is in one of the lovely old sandstone buildings on the old wharf. We had the seafood chowder which was delicious and filling. All of the meals coming out of the kitchen looked great. The nautical theme was interesting & fun. We visited early on a Monday evening and were seated without a reservation but it quickly filled up. I would recommend a reservation if you were coming later in the week.

This place is amazing from the moment you walk through the doors. The way they have set the place up is great! You could literally go there just to have a look around. Kids loved looking at all the cool things on display and so did we. Food was also amazing. Highly recommend checking this place out. You will not be disappointed.

The atmosphere was great, service brilliant and food fantastic. It wasn't too loud and setting was divine, and even with a service dog, it was perfect

So disappointed My husband & I had been looking forward to eating at the Drunken Admiral for some time. Arrived at 7.15pm (early for our reservation) but were seated straight away by friendly staff. We ordered an entree & main each at approx 7.20pm and entrees arrived 3 min later. I had salt & pepper squid which was beautifully tender but VERY bland. As soon as we had finished, the table was cleared. Only 3 minutes later, mains were on the table - despite us not being ready to eat again so quickly. We both had Crumbed Tasmanian Scallops which were dry from overcooking. We did not enjoy our meals and the experience was very rushed
