Been going to the Tin Shed for years and although it has had a massive facelift it hasn't lost its great view and consistent food and good value drinks. The new upstairs area is fabulous for 4 - 5 happy hour/sunset drinks before dinner. Very popular with the older set but worth a visit for young ones as well.

Great views of Port marina and harbour, happy hour strangely split into two, 4-5 and 8 - 9, so if you want a few pre dinner beers or champas with a view, head over to the tin shed around 4. Good selection of beers (cub) on tap.

A local resident recommended the Tin Shed to us, and we happened upon it during a walk through Port Douglas. Since we're not Australian, we had to sign in as temporary members of the Combined Club in order to get in; took about five minutes for the two of us, and then we were free to use the premises for...

We came here without great expectations but really enjoyed the battered barramundi. They were out of our chosen wine but had a reasonable alternative. Not the greatest but would come again.

Brilliant location but this venue seriously needs to upgrade its menu. We had the seafood basket x 2 servings - both were different but both were too heavy on the batter. Prices were quite reasonable but the staff really need to work on their people skills ... Very ordinary service...some need to learn to smile, very slap dash & I... More

Laid back atmosphere at the Tin Shed in Port Douglas overlooking the water. Perfect place to unwind and enjoy the harbour view before dinner. Very good bar service with drink prices very reasonable and the food was excellent.

Whilst the location is second to none, the food really let them down . We had the bucket of prawns ( NOT in a bucket) & they were either frozen, defrosted, frozen & REdefrosted or simply not fresh. Very soft & mushy - sad when you can buy them off the boat 5 minutes away! The chips were awful &... More
