“Awful service, terrible pizza, slow!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

Patronising, rude staff, overpricing pizza that tastes no better than dominos, made us wait one hour twenty minutes for our food. I would never return to this awful place.

“Wonderful ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

I love this place, sand on the floor, great casual dining and wonderful staff. It really has a individual flair which is well worth the trip out of town.

“Price > quality”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

My partner and I recently went here for dinner and like everywhere else in Port Douglas the price does not by any means match the quality of food being served.

I had a pizza and a mock-tail ,my partner had fish and chips and a beer. The bill $75. The pizza alone was $27 and it wasn't anything better then you would get at a pizza chain store such as pizza hut or dominos.

My partners fish and chips were good, but nothing beyond pub quality and not worth $25.

That being said, the service was pretty good.

“An enjoyable dinner away from the tourist spots”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Our last night in port Douglas we gave the beach shack a go. Was buzzing with locals. We tried the cheese and garlic pizza and yummy was the only way I could describe it. It was very lite and not heavy at all. Service was very good and the meals came out very quickly. The meals are a decent size and for those that can't decide what desert to have they offer a tasting plate. Thank you for a lovely night
