Loved this place - great atmosphere, good food, friendly folk cold beer in a hot night. What more could you want. It is informal and take it as you find it but does it very well.

We went on a saturday night after the hotel recommended this place. We wouldnt recommend it. Very overpriced, bland food and the chicken had a really funny taste to it that made me feel it was off. Give this one a miss.

Hi SydneyBek, It is concerning to read you felt one of our dishes may have been off - that's a pretty serious charge to level at a restaurant. Our Head Chef prides himself on preparing fresh meals daily - we have daily deliveries of produce and strict procedures in place so I can assure you our meals are absolutely fresh.... More

The food was exceptional and we went four times over a two week period. Great atmosphere and off the main drag, perfect if staying in Craiglie or worth the Taxi rider from anywhere in the Port Douglas vicinity, booking recommended. We were a larger mixed party, from age 11 to 50 from the UK / some UK via Adelaide and... More

We tried The Beach Shack for the first time on the weekend. It had been recommended to us and now we know why, it was great. The service was excellent, food was delicious and the decor quirky. We will be back.
