Local people and visitors love coming to this waterfront restaurant where you would swear Long John Silver hangs out. There is a full on nautical theme and it is so well done that every nook and cranny has something of interest to look at and admire. You know you are going to have a good time the minute you set foot through the door, so it is ideal for groups. The Dead Man's Gold Museum upstairs offers shipwrecks and pirates and nautical nostalgia. Mostly seafood is served, but other dishes are available.
Very well decorated, food was nice......a little pricey, but for a special occasion it would be good. Didnt like the staffs attitude!
Was plenty of time till closing, but they kept looking over at us, while they were drinking spirits from the bar, I'm sure they were rushing us off. 2 waitresses had their bags in their hand waiting to go.
My wife and I have just returned from a trip through Alaska and Canada and along the way have had Alasken King Crab and lobster in Canada and Maine USA in 5 star Hotels.None have had the flavour of the seafood meals at the Drunken Admiral.Also the staff are great and very helpful and I would suggest this place to all internatial travelers and locals alike.
The food was delicious, and speedy, however the service staff were short and abrasive even though the door had only just opened, seemed like they were ready to shut house.
Ambience was enjoyable, but the experience very short lived, as we hadn't booked and we were expected to vacate as quickly as possible. The meals were delivered within 10 minutes and we felt pressured to leave soon after.
We would recommend it, but would advise to book, to ensure a more pleasurable and leisurely dining experience.
We went back to this restaurant last week (Feb 2008) to give it another try after a poor experience some 4 years ago.
Some things never change!! The service upon being greeted for a 8:30 booking was ordinary. We happened to arrive at 8:25 which did not go down well. Our table was not ready and we were told to come back at 8:30 or have a drink at the bar. After having been seated it was a full 15 minutes before a menu was placed on our table and then another 10 minutes berfore we could get someones attention to order our drinks.Then another 10 minutes before someone took our meal order. That's 35min before the meal order was placed. It's a shame as the food is quite good and the seafood chowder is magnificent. To us, something is wrong with the staff. They don't look happy and are definately under the pump. Never Again!!
We were a little unsure of how to get in but when we did we absolutely amazed by the atmosphere and by how helpful the staff were. We were seated in a booth lit up by candle light without even booking. The wine was superb and the food was so filling. We now make a point of going there atleast once a Month. Even though the Drunken Admiral has a price it is 100% worth it!!
This is a very nice unpretenious restaurant with about the best value I experienced in Tasmania. My wife and I have visited it three times over the past ten years and would always make this our first choice in Hobart.
I wanted a particluar fish dish with potatoes instead of chips. This was not allowed but I could order an extra side dish of pots (at extra cost). I changed my order to a dish with potatoes and when it came, the potatoes were as hard as bullets.
Most unsatisfactory and not at all like OZ restaurants.
A relative newcomer on the Hobart dining scene, this eating place has already earned an awesome reputation. As you enter
the takeaway counter dominates, but further into the restaurant are dining spaces concluding with a teppanyaki table suitable for ...
Here is an outlet for Tasmania's finest cheeses, and also a stylish establishment that is busy all week, but seems
especially popular with families on Sundays. Clever use of shades of blue, contrasted with Scandinavian style furniture gives freshness. ...
It could hardly be called anything else. With sweeping views of the Derwent River, this little pub scores high on
the quaintness factor of its architecture. Inside is a blazing log fire when the weather demands it, and a ...
