  • A little bit out of the way beyond Dolphin Sands, a source for local oysters. A bit more expensive than up the road at St Helens but I am told by the oyster eater in the family that they were...

  • Amazing oysters!! I usually like having lemon with the oysters, but these, they were the best on their own! Don't get me wrong, the lemons they give you have a really nice flavour as well, but damn the oysters on their own really hit the spot. The ladies there were very friendly. We also had the pleasure of meeting Homer 🐕🐾 10/10 would come back again for more!!
  • You HAVE TO visit this place if you’re in the area. The experience was a whole nother level and the freshness of the oysters are unbeatable. The best oysters we’ve had throughout our trip💕 The lady (sorry I didn’t get your name) running the store was beautiful, she told us about the types of oysters that’s available and what she usually recommends. We went with half regular and half golden oysters. These oysters are huge, like twice the size of your regular oysters. And the prices are extremely reasonable as well. You’ve got heaps of seating options, but we had to choose the one overlooking the sea. The drive in was straightforward, you could either use google maps or simply follow the street signs that lead you there. Parking won’t be an issue. We cannot recommend this place enough if you love your oysters!
  • What a great place! Oysters harvested from the sea only metres away and served fresh by friendly staff. Great quality and great value
  • A must visit if you love fresh and fat oysters! Excellent customer service! The lady was super friendly! 👍🏻 One of the best oysters I’ve ever had in Tassie!
  • Highly recommend Melshell Oyster Shack, Was well worth the stop. Lovely friendly and knowledgeable staff and top quality delicious oysters.
