I was soooooo looking forward to sampling the super fresh seafood at this shack by the side of the road. I had visions of a relaxed atmosphere, a few salty sea dogs shucking oysters to order whilst sharing a yarn or two. I couldn't be more wrong. The atmosphere has great potential. It is indeed a shack by the side of the road with benches, an outdoor sink and tons of atmosphere. But unfortunately there's as much care and attention to your order as you'd expect from a Coles supermarket. We did visit at a premium time - ie midday on NYE, but there was only a party of about 6 tourists, plus a couple of other tables, and yet the service was rushed and the oysters were PRE-SHUCKED AND WRAPPED IN CLING FILM. AARRRGHGHGH. We paid $40 for half a rock lobster and 6 pretty briny oysters (no sign of the legendary "creamy" tasmanian taste). How long had those oysters been sitting shucked in the fridge? They were so dry it could have been hours. No excuse really. Also ordered the mussels with lemon - great size serving and VERY yummy. Had the scallops and abalone special with roll for $20 - absolutely loved the garlicy/buttery sauce it came with. So, all in all, it's an absolutely fine stop before you head off on your historic walk to beautiful Wineglass Bay, as long as you don't mind dry oysters and conveyor belt service. Shame - could be perfect.
