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)

Initially when going to Hursey Seafoods Stanley Tasmania, we intended to eat at the restaurant, but then decided to get takeaway. We ordered serves of flathead, and a prawn box. The serves were substantial, but we were totally disappointed with the quality of our meal. The flathead was dry and tasted of fish oil, rather than the moist, sweet flathead that we have previously enjoyed from other fish food outlets, and anticipated when we ordered from Hursey Seafoods. We did not enjoy the prawns as the flavour was tainted with obvious ammonia. From this experience, we will be reluctant to return to Hursey Seafood, although the chips were quite good.

Everything was rushed felt like we were at a feedlot. Older male waiter was rude. Wanted a relaxing meal with a few drinks but they couldn’t wait for you to finish. Would order takeaway but never go to the restaurant again.
