Description: Hursey Seafoods, based in Stanley Tasmania, is a major catcher of the renown Southern Rock Lobster (crayfish). Patrons can purchase a range of seafoods; wholesale, takeaway or dine-in for lunch or tea. In 1974 James Snr and Valerie Hursey relocated from Dover (Sth East Tasmania) to Stanley (Nth West Tasmania). In 1987, to complement a growing company fishing fleet, a commercial factory/takaway/dine in premises was established as a memorium to James Snr and Valerie's son, Patrick, who was lost at sea attempting to rescue an adventurer, rowing across Bass Strait. In June 2015, the property was extensively renovated and now seats 100 diners, overlooking the bay and nestled under the Stanley Nut. Hursey Seafoods' fleet of nine vessels catches Southern Rock Lobster, Giant Crab, Stipey Trumpeter, Gummy Shark, flathead and other local reef fish. Lobster is retained live in sea tanks on premises, which ensures supply all year and provides consumers with the very best taste. Hursey Seafoods is open every day, apart from Christmas, for lunch and dinner. Takeaway open: 11.00 AM to 7.00 PM Sun - Thu, 11.00 PM to 7.30 PM Fri & Sat Restaurant open: 12.00 PM to 2.30 PM (seated by) & 5.30 PM to 8.00 PM (seated by)

We ate in the upstairs cafe twice during our stay in Stanley. The seafood chowder was second to none-that is what brought us back the second night! We also had the seafood platter which was a good for value selection of hot and cold seafood-the chef was more than happy to grill our fish as we are not big fans of batter or crumb. We will certainly return on our next visit to Stanley and recommend Julie and Patricks cafe to anyone looking for a good feed and a good wine list in casual cafe environment.

We ate upstairs. Seafood platter was nearly all fried and expensive for the quality. Service was basic & refused to supply us with tap water.

We visted the place but got takeaway fish and chips from the downstairs cafe. The food was okay and the portion of chips large, but it was not that exciting.

Attended Hursey Seafood Stanley Fish and batter was first rate. Chips skinny modern things very poor. Lady that served very matter of fact and not good for a service industry. Advice find someone viabrant energetic who loves to deal with people. There were plenty of great examples in other Stanley businesses. Visit Monday 9 April 2012
