The restaurant is in a great position with a nice view over the marina. For lunch we ate "seafood taste plate" what was very good, the portion is generous, the service friendly and attentive.

Nelson Bay is our home town. Haven’t lived here for more than 30 yrs
The seafood here is amazing and oh so fresh. We had the Hot & Cold Seafood platter for 2 and a whole Local Lobster with garlic and chilli butter.
Perfection. Never disappoints us. Staff are great. We come back ever time we are in town

We had an amazing lunch at the Rock Lobster Restaurant. Wonderful! The views from the restaurant were just lovely. My husband had the 'Tasting Plate' and I had a 500g fresh lobster - both dishes were freshly prepared with local produce, the service was attentive and friendly, and it was reasonably priced. Including a glass of bubbles each, the price was $145.00. The lobster was at market price on the day and came with chips and salad. It was beautifully prepared. The tasting plate included scallops, oysters, prawns, calamari, fish fillets as well as salad and chips. There were also dipping sauces. Great!!

This restaurant has a first floor location looking over the marina and bay beyond. There is indoor and outdoor seating the latter protected from rain etc. There is an extensive menu with plenty of non seafood choices. Like most of the local restauarants a top price seafood platter to share is on offer if you require a protein overload - it did look very good at the next table. The staff were friendly, the service was good and the food was fine. It was not busy on a Sunday evening so may be a little slower at peak times and booking will probably be necessary. It is not cheap but the location demands a premium.
