It’s only a small little seafood shop but sells the freshest seafood, we bought a kilo of the biggest and best king prawns we’ve ever had, absolutely delicious it was like eating chunks of lobster. Highly recommended.More

Thank you Jamesy and as they say, you can never judge a book by it's cover. We may only be a small seafood shop but the team behind it, is one big fishing family. Those King prawns come straight off the local trawler which docks...More

Nice local place in Amity where you are guaranteed to find nice fresh seafood. Probably better off going later in the week though and if you want sand crab - book.More

Just back from another trip to the island and stopped for oysters at Rufus King. There were some great looking prawns for sale as well but we stocked up on oysters and ate them overlooking the jetty at Amity. Plenty to browse here to with...seafood accompaniments.More

We've been camping on Straddie for many years and our absolute favourite place to buy seafood is Rufus in Amity Point. They have these massive prawns there that are the sweetest mouthful you can taste - I can taste it now just thinking about them....Yes they are expensive, but I will always pay good money for a good product. They are way better than the imported crap you get from the supermarket. A bit of tangy seafood sauce, a cold beer, barefoot in the sand, watching the whales swim by and the kids playing in the dunes. My kind of holiday. Can't wait for the straddie restrictions to lift so we can come back. First stop, rufus!More

Reviewed 23 February 2020

It was cheaper to buy Straddie seafood in Capalaba as we saw places advertised lower prices when back on the main land. Very casual customer service. Very over priced for 'just off the trawler' and compared to Europe & the USA it would go out...of business within a month. Buy your seafood on the main land & bring it to the island and eat and look at the amazing view in Point Look Out.More

Morning! Yes the seafood we sell (depending on availability) ready to be eaten without cooking is; prawns, bugs, sand crabs and oysters. It's always best to phone our Straddie store to see what the local catch is that day... More
