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

Casual and relaxed dining by the bay. Food is lovely and drinks are a good standard. The venue it self inside needs a bit of an overhaul to clean it up, and it can sometimes be cold so take a jumper! Overall it is a good venue to have a decent meal with friends, family or have a party. If... More

Wonderful place on the waterfront. Very busy but the tables seem to flow nicely and you dont have to wait too long to be seated. Great variety of foods and drinks and lovely casual atmosphere. Great for functions or just for a bite to eat. Cater for the young ones too!

We popped in for a late lunch en route to the Bellarine. It was nearly 3 on a weekday and we were thinking a lot of cafes would have closed their kitchens. So we were pleased that we tried the Wharf Shed and found it runs a full menu all the time. The menu is an expansive café menu including... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here, my husband and I both had the seafood pizza. Well worth the $21 . Perfect pastry and very tasty topping. Great venue right on the foreshore. A favourite cafe of ours when we visit Geelong. Service great, can't be faulted. We are here on Good Friday and still the service and food is excellent. Well... More
