“So pleased someone told us about Tin Shed!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

We were told about the Tin Shed by a friend. Confirmed how to find it after our trip to the reef and it was just 100m on the right after the Marina. Signed the visitors book and wonderful, table right at the waterfront to watch the sunset. Great location and drinks well priced. Relaxed atmosphere and we returned the following evening for a meal which was good. Can't compare the Barramundi as previous experience was covered in a divine sauce but enjoyed it and the steak was good. Service efficient and a thoroughly enjoyable experience at a reasonable price, for Australia!!! Worth going just for a drink and a sunset view if nothing else.

“Ate here twice on trip!”
Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

It was lovely dining here, the atmosphere was just right and it was great being right on the water! The wait for food was also very low, considering it's great quality. It was not overly crowded and it had a fair selection of meals. I ate there twice when visiting Port Douglas. A gem not to be missed!

“lovely setting some meals typical rsl style food”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

it is january and very humid. all dining is out on the deck overlooking the marina. why would u choose to sit anywhere else. in an attempt to keep diners cool there are big fans and a fine mist is sprayed over everyone. good and bad tho as your food and drinks are being constantly sprayed. steak was average but husbands deep fried whole barramundi was a better choice. big hearty garlic bread and club priced drinks. ggod family dining some meals a better choice than others. also worth a look for better quality family friendlycasual dining the port douglas surf club on the beach

“Best place to eat in Port Douglas!”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

This restaurant located at the Marina has a wonderful desk for dining. The restaurant opens at 5:30 p.m. and the variety of dishes can please anyone. The bar has everything you may want. When you come in, simply sign in and you will be considered as a member of the club.
