Boasting arguably the best dining location in Tasmania, the Lobster Shack is a boutique, farm gate style eatery overlooking the majestic ‘Gulch’ in Bicheno, where Lobster really is the hero! 

Owners Sara and Marcus were born into the Tasmanian seafood industry and were destined to create a unique culinary experience that is second to none.  

Winner of the 2019 Best Seafood Restaurant Experience at the Tasmanian Seafood Industry Council Awards, The Lobster Shack provides a truly authentic ‘ocean to plate’ experience. Marcus launches his boat just metres from the front door, providing patrons with delicious Tasmanian seafood so fresh you can smell and taste the sea salt!  

With a relaxed and casual vibe, simple preparation allows the seafood to speak for itself; lemon garlic butter lets the sweet meat of the lobster shine through, while a bowl of local mussels swim in delectable lobster broth. Crispy skinned char-grilled Tasmanian salmon tops a dressed leafy salad and plates of fresh oysters with lemon tantalise the tastebuds. Of course, there’s also the staple fish and chips with house-made tartare to delight even the most discerning palate. 

Supplying fresh, high-quality local seafood, in a relaxed, friendly environment for locals and tourists alike, The Lobster Shack provides an experience for all visitors, young and old.  

While the panoramic deck provides spectacular views over the pristine waters of the picturesque boat harbour, the upstairs maritime museum offers a visual narrative of Tasmania’s historic commercial fishing industry and details how Bicheno has expanded into the thriving fishing port it is today. 

If you want to cook something yourself – we’ve got you covered! A range of fresh seafood products is available for purchase from the display cabinet, while a live fish tank allows customers to choose their own fresh Tasmanian Rock Lobsters and experience the truest ‘ocean to plate’ experience in Tasmania. 

Also on offer is ice-cream from Van Diemens Land Creamery and coffee sourced from Specialty Coffee Roaster, Allpress Espresso. 

The Lobster Shack is open 7 days a week from 11am – 7pm, eat in or take away.
