The food was good, we didn't book but it was Monday night and maybe busier on other nights. The wait staff were pleasant. Wine pricey but nice wine.

After reading a lot of the reviews here we weren't sure what to expect. However we were pleasantly greeted on arrival and shown to a table. Menus delivered promptly at the same time taking our orders. Drinks arrived within a few minutes and our orders arrived after about 15 minutes,which we thought was very good considering it was a sunny... More

Went on 06/08/2014 for lunch with my wife and two young girls. Got there at about 11:50am and ordered drinks which were served promptly, but decided to wait for five minutes to decide what food to order. BIG MISTAKE!!! Tried to get service several times to order, and every time was told the waiter will come to your table which... More

Took some interstate visitors to the Wharf Shed for lunch on a weekday. We were all very disappointed in both the service and the food. The Wharf Shed has the view that their customers are going to do a "runner" and not pay, although they provide a waiter service you are required to pay for each item as it is... More

Our family went to the Wharf Shed Cafe for lunch on a very stormy day, and were able to sit at a, indoor table where we could watch the waves crashing over the breakwater- great entertainment. The service was prompt and waitstaff courteous, food overall quite good (although way too much cheese on the Margarita pizza!). Serving sizes large. The... More

I have no complaints about my meal, but the place was loud and not relaxing. It seemed like they wanted to churn though tourists, which makes sense due to it's location. I still do think of my garden salad with calamari on top, though. It was delicious.

Great view of the bay while having a drink & nice food. Helicopter rides take off just near by and are very loud , but good to watch.

Four of us ate here fo Mother's Day brekkie. We nearly didn't as no bookings 'first in best dressed' we waited to be seated as sign indicated. Staff ignored us, going about their business. We soon got sick of standing ( with two elderly mothers) and decided to seat ourselves which everyone appeared to do. 25 minutes for coffee a... More
