Had lunch there on a Sunday with friends. It was busy. It was School holidays. Food was very good. Service friendly. I note another reviewer commented on the musical entertainment on Sunday lunch. i also note that after that review the proprietors said they had started the performance later and ask them to tone it down a bit. I found... More

Located in the Combined Services Club, the restaurant on the water overlooking the inlet has been updated. The food was pretty good. Not fine dining, but sizeable serves and a focus on seafood. Mostly self serve here, club or pub style.

Club type venue right on the water, if you want a quick bite and a drink go upstairs for home made pizzas and plenty of beer on tap, happy hour from 3-5pm is a winner. Meals available downstairs with pokies if you feel the urge. Great position for a cheap afternoon and friendly atmosphere.

Great view of the water. We had a table of 6 and our orders came out quickly and for the pricing the food was great. I had a bucket of prawns and oyster kilpatrick, oysters were great. I would recommend for a nice family day to visit the Tin Shed.

Right on the river at Port Douglas this is a great place to have lunch / dinner. Managed to get a table close to the water so watched the passing parade of boats whilst devouring a bucket of large prawns (delicious) washed down with a cold beer and a glass of Sav Blanc. Large menu with tasty food at reasonable... More
