We visited the Lobster Shack on a day trip to the Pinnacles. We got there about 1pm and although it was quite busy we managed to get an outdoor table near the water and with an umbrella. The food line was about a 20 minute wait but then the food was ready in about another 10 minutes. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day sitting by the water. We ordered abalone as we had never tried it and although it is expensive at $40 for 3 abalones, it was really good and we were all happy with the flavor and freshness. We also ordered a full lobster and couldn’t fault that either. Yummo. Well worth the road trip from Perth!

In a small town of Cervantes is this shack serving beer and seafood for visitors and locals alike. Ordered each of the hot and cold platters. The hot platters contain half rock lobster, kilpatrick oysters, fish with chips, squid rings, cooked shrimps, scallops and lobster bisque, while the cold platter has half lobster with octopus tentacles in vinegar, fresh oysters, lobster roll and salad, cold shrimps, smoked salmon slices and mackerel. The platters was not cheap. It came to about $125-130 respectively per platter. Service was minimal and have to wait a before being called. The kids chicken nuggets and chips was poor because the nuggets were processed chicken! Parking was difficult when the place was packed! The back had the Indian Ocean view!

Very nice location, which probably helps justify the meal prices. My wife had the garlic prawns with half lobster, $40, but is closer to an entree size than main meal. I had the whole lobster for 50 bucks which came with some chips and very small salad. It’s a place you, sort of, have to visit when in Cervantes, but just be aware that you’ll pay top dollar for what is local produce. We were there on Easter Monday lunch time and it was very busy. Hate to think what it was like on the weekend 😩.
They’d also run out of oysters and hence couldn’t offer a seafood platter. But again that would’ve been due to the Easter demand.

Our group of 5 was on a road trip through WA and we decided to treat ourselves to a lobster lunch at The Lobster Shack, before exploring The Pinnacles. We were not disappointed!

It was a sunny, cold day and we elected to sit outside under striped umbrellas with a lovely view over the Indian Ocean, surrounded by the ever-watchful seagulls. We all had the half lobster grilled with garlic butter, salad and chips washed down with Lobster Lager. Not a cheap meal with the half lobster at $40, but it was delicious and we all felt it was one of the culinary highlights of the trip.

Avoid! Lots of gluten free options on the menu, went to order the buttermilk chicken burger GFO, waitress looked at me funny, then at the menu and asked where I was sat in case the chef had any issues (why would they have issues when it was advertised on the menu). Thirty minutes after we had ordered our food, our friends had already finished there food, someone came out to tell us they cannot do the buttermilk chicken gluten free can only do the vegan burger or grilled fish burger?? Whilst waiting someone cleared our table, someone ask if everything was okay - I told them we were still waiting the for our food, just said sorry about that and ran away. Also ordered another drink while I was waiting and could see waiters arguing over who would bring the drink over as they could tell was annoyed. Such a shame as I was looking forward to going.

After all the advertisements on local radio etc decided we must try the Lobster Shack on our few days in our caravan in Cervantes.Like quite a few of the reviews very disappointed. I had the lobster roll and hubby just the chips. The roll was very small for the cost of $30 and not that fresh although the lobster was nice but the cheese melted on top was congealed. It was cold too I was expecting it to be atleast warm. Speaking to others at the caravan park the views were bad and people said waste of money.
Our local fish and chip shop at home wins hands down. How on earth a family could afford this place !

Don’t go if you’re hungry.. or if you like waffles for dessert... very long wait for the food. Not worth the price you pay for the microscopic shrinking lobsters. We used to take our WA visitors there after the pinnacles adventure but definitely this was our last visit.
The food was just OK, the waffles were horrible, probably frozen and microwaved, we weren’t allowed to choose the ice cream flavours, after I paid and after another looong wait I was informed by a non very friendly lady that the only option was plain vanilla.. I ate it because I was still hungry after the $35 lobster’s sample.

Visited this restaurant on our way to Jurien Bay. We had a few different lobsters. It tasted fresh & nicely done. This restaurant is situated just beside the sea & has fantastic view from the tables outside A must place to visit if travelling up north Perth.

We didn't eat at the on shore restaurant but went on the boat trip to see sea lions frolicking in the water. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and felt totally safe.

My husband and I were taking a trip up north to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We left Mandurah at 9 am Thursday morning and had planned to stop for lunch at the lobster shack on the way to Exmouth. We were so excited as we both love seafood. I checked out their website while my husband was driving and was so alarmed to find so many bad reviews. We decided to still go as didn’t believe it could be as bad as what was written. When we arrived there I actually told the lady who was taking our order my concerns. She assured me that this had happened when Covid was relaxed and everyone came at once and everything was fine now.We paid $96, $48 each for a lobster half, chips and salad. What a disappointment. The lobster was so stringy and hard to get out of the shell.The chips were lukewarm and limp and the salad looked like it was three days old and it just has been used over and over again.We will NEVER go back. A real rip-off.🤬🤬
