Fish Market Chowder: this dish has been on our menu since the day we opened in 1979 and we haven't changed the recipe.

About The Drunken Admiral Restaurant

Fresh Tasmanian seafood in a vibrant maritime vibe lures Hobart diners back time and again to The Drunken Admiral on Hunter Street. Popular with locals and tourists alike, this family-run restaurant has been operating in the midst of Hobart's beautiful waterfront since 1979, from a historic building with an interior ambience reminiscent of being onboard an old sailing ship. Smell the salty sea air while sipping a cold Boags draught and delving into freshly shucked oysters; before reeling in a yachtie's seafood mixed grill of prawn skewers, scallops, squid, white market fish, served on an oven-fired stone to finish cooking at your table, with seasoned fries, salad, tomato relish and garlic aioli. For the Drunken Admiral himself, opt for char-grilled beef eye fillet and red wine jus.

An amazing setting with loads of character. Great service and sensational food. Couldn't fault our experience one iota

Happened upon the Drunken Admiral by accident, and has become a favourite place. The decor is fun for kids and adults, lots of nautical props all over the walls and ceiling. The Devil Fired oysters are amazing, until I came to Tasmania I had never eaten oysters before. If they have scallops on the daily specials board I highly recommend having these on the 'BBQ', basically a hot rock so you can cook them at your table. Husband orders, without fail, the Volcanic Rock Salmon. He never shares it, so I can only assume it's really good. This place does get very busy, so if you are going on the weekend make a reservation. Some of the tables are close together, and it can get a bit noisy. On the higher end of the price scale, but well worth it for fresh seafood I think.
