Great location

Great location for a meal and a couple of drinks. Always crowded but can get a table OK usually. Overlooks the water and is next to the Marina and shops

This place is on the banks of the estuary at the west end of town. The view of the mountains in the distance, especially with the sun going down is lovely. Basically a pub/bar type establishment, it is a popular place to grab a drink and relax at the end of the day, plus indulge in some more than adequate... More

My partner ordered the roast which she was very happy with and I ordered the fettuccini which was good but did lack a bit in the flavour department. Maybe some fresh chilli, parsley, shallots would help the dish ?? Being a local I was blown away when I went to order our drinks and was told by the lady that... More

The food & views were terrific. The location was on the water which was lovely. Host a little overbearing.

My wife and I ate dinner here on two occasions on our recent stay in Port Douglas. It's a very popular venue and easy to see why. The views from the outdoor terrace are wonderful and the food is pretty good too! We were delighted with the steaks, very tasty and tender and on the other night the pork belly... More

This restaurant has a great location and view but unless I want to eat a salad or chips there are no options on the menu for Vegetarians! I should not have to ask if there are as by now in 2015 there should be options available. Update your menu to be inclusive please!!!!!

The only good thing I can say about the Tin Shed is the view.It is located right on the inlet looking up the coast and to the mountains trully spectacular. The food is typical pub food at restaraunt prices.When my steak and chips arrived they had obviously been sitting on the counter for a long time and were stone cold.... More

A lovely spot to sit and watch the boats go by and watch the sunset. Very reasonably priced drinks and food - although beware the mosquito activity....even Bushman didn't work for me!

What a place :) loved it. You go onto the terrace under the canopy to see sea views to be met by mist spraying vents on the roof. When it's warm it's a great touch :) Well done guys loved it here :)
