What a fantastic place to enjoy seafood, yes the atmosphere was lively but it was not over bearing and we both enjoyed our conversations without trouble. Best part of the dining out was food. I had the seafood chowder and it simply fantastic. I enjoy a nice chowder and the Drunken Admiral's rated very highly. It was flavoursome and a... More

Some of the things we ate were amazing... some were awful. The seafood platter was terrible! The octopus was slimy, the mousse tasted old... That said, the seafood chowder was delicious and the baked salmon and oysters were awesome. It was just so inconsistent! The meals are expensive and I have no faith that what you get will be any...

Staff was very friendly and useful in giving advice on food choice. from lookin at menu, seems like the chief has added fusion tastes in some dish. Ordered main course seafood chowder, loved it! Very creamy and lots of fresh meaty seafood. Partner ordered mussels, sauce was... More

Went there recently with friends and relived memories from 20 years ago when we lived in Hobart. The service was great and the food still excellent. I always compare every seafood chowder to the one I had 20 years ago here and none have met my standards. So please to see that Drunken Admiral still has the best seafood chowder... More

My biggest complaint is that I left there smelling like fried seafood! They have a fried sampler platter that comes to the table sizzling. The steam and grease gets on you. The table next to us had it and my husband... As many others .... :( so no problem as long as you can go home and shower. And wish... More

Had an excellent seafood BBQ which was served on skewers, sizzling on a hotplate. Great flavours and the chips were very good too. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. On a busy evening, they found us a table and we were served without delay.

This restaurant is a very busy noisy place to dine. Food is ok and quite expensive for what you get. Service was slow and one of the servers forgot to deliver one of our meals we ordered. It has a good choice menu and would suit many people who love seafood.
