Fantastic night out! We were initially put off on entering where the cane toad racing was as the smell of the carpets was disgusting but we went towards where the cane toad racing was and as soon as it started we were in hysterics! Fab hour to spend! Loved it!

Upon the recommendation of our bus driver we went to the Tin Shed for our first night in Port Douglas. The meals were heartily enjoyed by all nine people from two families. I chose the bucket of prawns and I was not disappointed - fresh and delicious. I had a hard time keeping everyone else on the table from stealing... More

We stopped off after a trip to the Great Barrier Reef with Quicksilver from the marina and after signing in as a visitor enjoyed drinks in a very comfortable setting. Lovely setting. Menu for dinner looked good but we had a booking elsewhere. Certainly worth supporting.

We loved our visit to the tin shed, sitting with a bucket of prawns and a beer right of the water, feeding shells to the fish, staff very friendly, back for a second visit, highly recommended.

I have had several meals here with friends and family. The view from the ocean side deck is always incredible. The food is great value, simple but tasty and the service is generally very good. Recommended for family dining.

I'd read good reviews about both the food and the views. Spot on in both cases. I had a nice rocket salad and a delicious seafood basket and my husband enjoyed his spring rolls and Thai massaman curry.

Title says it all - generous portions of tasty food at reasonable prices. Great view of the sunset. I had the seafood basket, my wife had the lamb.

This is a cracking venue for that romantic dinner. Right on the water, watching the comings and goings of the busy ones getting trips from the nearby harbour jetty to far flung reefs and fishing locations. Sit back and enjoy the great service food and location. Your still only a hop and a jump from the bustle of the busy... More
