We were there for lunch enroute to the Pinnacles Desert and were not disappointed. Though the price was not exactly cheap but food was quite nice. Would recommend this place if you are in the vicinity and don't mind paying a bit more.

Yes I realise this is called "Lobster Shack" but I was expecting more variety on the menu having said that the fish & chips I had (Spanish Mackerel, only choice) was fabulous, sadly my husband couldn't say the same for his grilled version.
