Very friendly attentive staff, plenty of menu choices also serve steaks. Mains $30-40. Nicely presented meals. If you arrive at 530pm you are able to view the feeding of a huge wild groper off the jetty.

This is a more casual restaurant than some of the others in PD. it has a perfect location- once you find it! Signage is large enough but the name of the restaurant on the sign could certainly be a bit bigger. That aside, this a great place for a fun dinner with friends or family. I had the coral trout fillet - just beautiful, a fresh, mild flavoured fish.

I have been going to On the Inlet for over 15 years. It is a gem! The sunsets while watching the boats come in is perfection after a day in sunny Port. Friendly staff and great cocktails. Get a bucket of prawns, sit back and enjoy! For a full dinner the seafood platter is AMAZING!

We ate at the restaurant our first night in Port Douglas and were not impressed. The food was simply ok, the prices were high and the service as passable. If you have someone in your party that does not eat seafood, this is not the place for you - I do not eat seafood and was told I could not order just a salad for dinner. So ended up ordering a very over priced steak as that was simply only 1 of the 2 items on the menu that were not seafood. To be fair, my husband and son enjoyed their meals, just also felt the service was simply ok.
