It’s not just all about lobster at Hursey’s.
Jim & Val Hursey purchased the current Hursey’s site in Stanley in 1987, and a fish factory, takeaway and small café were built. A complete renovation in 2015 now sees a 100-seat upstairs restaurant, with a takeaway and fresh fish sales area downstairs.
Hursey’s nine fishing vessels catch Southern Rock Lobster/Giant Crab, and scale fish and gummy shark from Bruny Island in the south to King Island in the Bass Strait and right along the rugged West Coast. The daily catch is processed on-board ready for restaurant and export sales.
The fully-licensed restaurant menu features Southern Rock Lobster, scallops, oysters and other seasonally available fresh seafood, as well as local beer and wine. A children’s menu is available, and the venue can cater for large groups, functions and special events.
