3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

After reading some of the reviews can't believe it was the place we had our takeaways it was a sunday and the restaurant closes at 4.00pm so we had a takeaway and went and had them on the front large fish well cooked and our chips were lovely and coming from Blackpool UK we know our fish and chip can only say teh other reviews were unlucky or we were lucky on the night we couldn't complain agree that the order taking was slap dash

“Very Overpriced Seafood”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

We were in Tasmania for 2 weeks and had seafood all over. This placed is definitely overpriced. Their crayfish costs twice as much as a place in Coles Bay.

“Expensive and not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

We have been let down by the food both in the restaurant and take away. The food is expensive and not particularly good. A much better option is to buy fresh fish or crays from the fishmonger counter next door. Still expensive but at least you can cook a great meal with quality produce.

“Got Caught Out”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

I found Hursey's on the website and thought great we will go when we are in Stanley. I should have read the Tripadvisor reviews because what a disappointment it was. My Tasmanian scallops which I always look forward to were average but my wife's fish was the worst she has ever had. We thought it must have been the oldest fish in the ocean or it had probably been heated up a number of times.
If you are thinking of going do yourself a favour and don't.

“What an expensive disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Had been to this establishment last year and has a really good meal. This year was so disappointing. Whilst paying $80 for half a crayfish was dearer than last year the mornay sauce was so very poor. Think they used kraft cream cheese and melted it on the cray. The oysters mornay for entree were not what I expected with about half a teaspoon on something purporting to be mornay sauce and when I questioned this the the waitress shrugged her shoulders and said that was what they served. Whilst we came back to Stanley to have another wonderful crayfish dinner this year wont go back there again. Might be better to try oyster bar which appears cheaper and may know how to cook mornay
