My favourite venue in Geelong but extremely frustrating because the service is sooooooooooooooo sloooooooooooow. We have waited 25 minutes to order before there.... sad because the food is worth waitng for.

“A million dollar location”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

A business colleauge and I recently lunched at the Wharf Shed Cafe. The cafe has a million dollar location - right on the bay. (It can be a little noisy with the sightseeing helicopter taking off and landing from almost next door).

The cafe has a mixture of outside and inside seating - the staff mentioned that the windows for the inside seating are often open but it was too windy on the day we were there. Inside was quite cosy. I thought the outdoor eating areas may be rather cool at night.

We had a "Big Sanga" which is REALLY big, and a "Wharf Shed Burger". Both meals were very tasty. With drinks, the lunch came to $45. Service was efficient and relaxed.

We would be happy to visit Wharf Shed Cafe for a meal again.

“Mains before entree's”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Mains before entree's after a long wait, how annoying!

Very unprofessional and disappointing.

Lift your game please Wharf Shed - you have lots of potential and great location. Don't let it go down the gurgler.
