Lovely outlook from this deck perched out over the edge of the water. Lovely sunsets drinks and then reasonably (for PD) priced meal. Don't let the renos put you off, they did not detract from our experience here. Sunset over the inlet and then the mountains in the background was very peaceful. And a few boats sliding by also.

We had a good night here, prices were very reasonable and good portions, both for food and wine. Staff friendly and helpful. Best place on the wharf for drinks at sunset.

Set in a very pleasant spot overlooking the water in Port Douglas this is a great spot to enjoy a leisurely laid back meal. A great view and well cooked "pub" style meals equates to a nice spot too while away the time. Open for lunch and dinner the "Tin Shed" is a must do while at Port Douglas. Try... More

Enjoyed a family lunch at The Tin Shed. Menu is varied and lots of size options if you want a snack or something larger. I had the seafood marinara linguine which was very good-there's no shortage of seafood. My family had the Calamari and Beef Burger which were also good. The local tap beer Great Western is also not bad... More

The Tin Shed is one of the best spots in town to sit and have a cold drink whilst watching the sunset in Port Douglas. My wife and I had a couple of dinners at the shed during our stay and both time the meals were very well cooked and presented. The staff were very friendly and the place had... More

Well, at dusk this place rocks with everyone hurrying to get their happy hour drinks and a seat for the view of the sinking sun over misty hills and water..........so relaxing, and those birds...like being in an aviary! Was really great to be offered a normal or large glass of wine, saved time getting up and down and missing out... More

Have eaten here in the past and always enjoyed my meal. Disappointed with my recent visit. The food was not as good as in the past , but still enjoyed the lovely view. Won't be rushing back.
