What a treat.
Hardly a “shack” - but rather a large & wonderful eatery - serving up fresh lobster (and other seafood, etc) - set overlooking the water - a “must do” when visiting the Pinnacles Desert - and a great treat for New Years Day lunch “living the dream” ?

Fantastic place for lunch.
Traveling around showing our Canadian cousin the sights of WA oz. Morning spent at the pinnacles and a lazy late lunch at the Lobster shack. Fantastic new deck outside alfresco area with a great beach outlook. Easily spend a few hours with a few lobster largers and great food. Topped off with a few cooked Cray's to take home. Awesome!

Pretty much tried most of the main dishes. Abalone cooked in white wine was prolly the best. Followed by the 500g of prawns which I absolutely loved - Very fresh! Lobster with Mornay with chips probably comes last. Don’t get me wrong, definitely loved it, but if I were to say something, probably it’s not cheesy enough, given it’s cooked with Mornay
