Description: 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)

They served huge portions of lovely, well cooked food...however we found the prices too high ($52 for fish, chips, onion rings, 6 scallops and a salad).
Excellent service though. :)

Came down to stanley for a walk up the nut and to have some beautiful fresh fish.
The nut did not dissapoint how ever the fish.. one word. Revolting. It was so bad that we fed it to some dogs in the park over the road and seeing the lady who got her takeaway before us do the same thing.. After a 35 minute wait for takeaway you would think it would have to be delicious. We definitely will not be back!

We had the Seafood Platter with half lobster. We loved the lobster so much we returned a few weeks later and had the lobster with chips and salad. It was delicious.
