Great location, value and food. Arrive about 4pm and watch the boats come in from their day at the reef while sipping on a cool drink with friends. A lot of the locals eat here so do go too late or you won't get a table. They have pokies also if that interests you

We got recommended this place by a local so we thought we'd give it a try and so right they were about how great this little place is!

We went there 4 times in a week either for lunch, dinner or a drink looking out over the water.

The staff and the view are this places strong suits. Returning after our first visit, the bartender remembered us and commented how it was good to see us again (I don't get this from the staff at my own local so it was a nice surprise).

The view to me is second to none. It's the perfect place to watch the sunset with a beer.

The food isn't too Shabby either! We went when there was a steak burger on the specials menu and got told by one of the staff "its bloody beautiful!" So we got two and weren't disappointed! We went there after the Sunday markets so it was quite busy but didn't have to wait too long which was good.

Reading the negative reviews of this place surprised me, as we haven't had one problem with this place, it's fantastic!!

Port Douglas can be pretty expensive for eating out particularly for Poms when the exchange rate is not in our favour.
The Port Douglas & District Combined Clubs - or the 'Tin Shed' as it is commonly known - is situated on the edge of the wharf on a large wooden deck out over Dicksons Inlet.
The food is great quality and substantially cheaper than the rest of Port Douglas as a whole.

Great views lovely atmosphe ut the food was only ok. Husband and son enjoyed their barramundi and my daughters pasta was nice bUt my chicken was terrible and after the first bite did not eat anymore. Would try again though as it may have just been an off night.
