Good Pub type meals, at reasonable prices. You can't beat the view. Get there before sunset, preferably at low tide.

I returned on four occasions over easter, the seafood was o.k as were most of the meals, bar prices have increased although now about restaurant price, the outlook is fantastic and that was the reason we returned.

I have been coming to the tin shed for many years and always take visitors as the views are the best in Port Douglas. The new renovations are very nice. However, the lady seating and taking lunch orders was quite rude and very inflexible in meeting some of our party's dietary needs. We could only have what was on the... More

Had dinner here with my wife and the food was great, staff very friendly and the meals were large portions. The service was also equally good.

I really enjoyed my meals here and wish I'd found it sooner. I had the chicken curry which was delicious. we shared the salt & pepper squid with noodles which would have been a terrific meal to have on its own. My friends had the fish and chips but nearly all of them left the fish. While it looked terrific... More

Have been visiting this place for many years. Had not seen the new second story balcony - which was a good addition. Can't help but wonder why it wasn't bigger with a better view. Drinks good value and food very edible. Good place for kids and value

We always head to the Tin Shed for lunch when we first arrive in Port Douglas. You would struggle to find anywhere else where you get the views over the water at such an affordable price. The food is always good and the drinks very reasonable priced a great way to start your holiday.

Difficult to sign in then ordering a meal and spending $40 you have too buy a tiny bread roll then when you get the roast pork it's as tuff as a leather boot. Staff friendly but doesn't help the wasted $. If you want to play the pokies you need a card to play as the machines don't except cash,... More

We dined here on recommendation from our hotel. The place has an amazing view but the food is pretty average and the staff were either too busy to be helpful or just rude. Sure, the room where kids can be locked away to play x-box will appeal to some but we preferred Hemmingways around the corner for great pub food... More

Port Douglas can be very expensive when you eat out, but this place has good quality food and a decent price. If you become a member you get 15% off and it only cost $5. Great value if you come here a few times.
