While having the same great views as its neighbour On Th Inlet, it is a much cheaper option. Great happy hour up stairs with really yummy $6 Pizzas. We spent two afternoons there. Next time we will go more if we can

You can't come to Poet Douglas without going to the Tin Shed. Like an RSL but with an amazing menu and on the water so beautiful setting. The menu has a huge variety with Seafood, meats, pastas and vegetarian. The Barramundi and steaks are as good as the best restaurants at a fraction of the cost. Once you go you... More

Great location on the sea, lovely food but had to cue to order. Reasonably priced and good for families. Lovely sunny spot. Can get busy.

Had drinks upstairs on the balcony with a beautiful sunset view over the water, and dinner downstairs. The menu had good variety and generous portions, definitely value for money. Staff were nice, although all visitors do need to sign up to be a temporary member with their ID.

This has an amazing view for the sunset dinner. However the food is average pub meal, dont expect anything spectacular. Staff are somewhat friendly - tables are hard to get and dont leave it at all. We saw a table that was occupied by a lady on her own, she went to the bar and the staff gave her table... More

Ate here twice for the views! The food was good also - great value. Nothing fancy but all good quality and well cooked. We had the barramundi, seafood basket, steak - all delicious. You need to sign in and I recommend you book because it does get busy.

Fairly standard club food but location and views are sensational. If you go early take sun screen and the new upstairs area is also great and gets a breeze

Located on the inlet, this is a great place to eat. Value for money is ordinary thought, and food is OK but not spectacular

Looking for good food, reasonable prices, and great service. Then the Tin Shed is for you. On arrival we were ushered to a table for three and asked to go and place an order when ready - at a counter. Its not your typical Pub meal nor is it fine dining with table service but the food is great! You... More
