We have a half lobster lunch together with some fries and they are really delicious! The cold prawns are fabulous as well. It has to go with chilli sauce to enhance the taste of it.

Sadly, we had already eaten when we arrived at the Lobster Shack, but we decided to do the factory tour instead. The tour started with an explanatory video & then we were given an audio guide each and allowed to progress at our own pace. I didn't think I'd be interested, but it was interesting and informative. This tour would... More

Unfortunately, upon our arrival at 3:15pm, we found the café to be closed. Tours of the processing plant, on the other hand, were still operating at $ 10.00 a head. Not being of a volition to pay to view what is typically a daily activity, we chose not to take the tour. Too commercial for my liking.

This stop provided us with very fresh seafood for lunch. We had the bucket of cooked cold prawns and half a lobster (should have ordered two as it was superb)! Very casual dining in the outdoor open garden area.

Very average, overpriced meal. We arrived for lunch and and were a bit dismayed to see the number of tourist coaches lined up. The place was nearly full but we were pleasantly surprised at how quick our meals arrived. There was no choice of fish - only Spanish mackerel which I don't rate very highly! The crayfish was quite dry... More

Arriving here they gave my son the VIP treatment and allowed him to view through the factory without the crowds of people. Being my son is Autistic crowds can be overwhelming but thanks to this amazing young lady in the picture with my son the experience not only exciting but educational too. Thankyou Lobster Shack

Amazing industry of lobster farming, the scenery of the Cervantes coast is beautiful. But seeing that there is so much lobster in the place food is way overpriced.

This place well worth a visit after spending morning at the Pinnacles. The lobsters are cooked to perfection. It is very tender and juicy. 38 AUD for a median size lobster plus salad and chips combo.

Wish there was an option for an even lower rating. We visited Lobster Shack on our way back to Perth and ordered 3 medium sized half grilled lobsters with rice (cost $39 per serve), 2 grilled fish with chips & coleslaw (cost $21 per serve) and 1 fish n chips & coleslaw (cost $20 per serve).....synopsis of dishes: Lobsters -...
