“Great fish & chips and excellent crayfish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2011

We bought a whole cooked crayfish and fish/scallops/prawns + chips + salad from Hurseys & washed it all down with a good bottle of Tassie riesling while sitting on the balcony at the hotel watching the sun set over Stanley. What more could one ask for. The cray was excellent - fresh and cooked perfectly. The fish / scallops / prawns were also very good & again, perfectly cooked. We weren't in Stanley long enough to try any of the other eateries but if you are after good fish & chips at a reasonable price (although the cray was $70 & worth every cent) they you can't go past Hurseys.

“The Best Quality & Best Priced Seafood in Tassie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Service in the upstairs restaurant was great.
The seafood platter for two x 2 fed 5 hungry men with only a few chips left over.
The seafood was delicious as was the deserts.
A great atmosphere overlooking the ocean / bay from the big wide floor to ceiling windows. Staff were professional however, very relaxed and made the place feel like home.
Cheapest & best seafood on our tour of Tassie! We will be back!

“Surprised it was not better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

This fish and chip shop was one of the finalists for the Best Fish and Chip shop in Tasmania. For me, their fish and chips did not live up to expectation although I did not have one of their signature dishes which might have been better. My fish was very meaty and well cooked although the chips were a disappointment – thin french fries style and probably frozen rather than fresh. All fish is caught by the fishing arm of the company and then some is sold live (choose your fish, kill it and cook it) or sold via the fish and chip shop. It is a popular place and does good business all year round – perhaps I was there on an off day.

“Great lobster mornay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011 via mobile

We were looking for a feed of lobster as the kids had not eaten one yet. We had lobster mornay and a seafood platter to share it was fantastic
