We had lunch at Julie & Patrick's restaurant on what was a fairly busy lunch hour during summer holidays. We couldn't fault the food or the service. Wait staff were attentive and friendly, the meals were great and came out in a timely manner. The kids ordered half serve sized mains which were very generous. Nice clean and modern restaurant...

Beautiful day at Stanley so decided to have a take away meal and sit outside in the sun rather than eat in. Our first choice of Trevally was sold out so we both chose the battered Trevalla. It was beautiful, fresh fish with crispy golden batter. Well worth the wait. We ordered a side of medium chips - wow what... More

Thank you for the wonderful review Lisa C! Sorry the Trevally had sold out. We may be lucky enough to restock on our fleets next fishing trip. Our portions are generous and I also usually have to hold back from ordering a standard medium, though it's so very tempting. We have been very busy and our team has worked hard... More

I was there for the lobster and it didn't disappoint. The mornay was cooked perfectly. The oysters weren't too bad either. A bit pricey but for special occasions it was well worth it. Cant wait to go back for another lobster !!

Not bad but disappointing at the lack of choice given the location.. Atmosphere is a bit sterile, like an RSL club.

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 Mon-Thu & Sun, 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)
