These guys do good fish and chips. It was super fresh and fast. It's a generous Serving and the kids loved it. If you want good quality and quantity fish and chips with a nice seating area out front this is the place to go in Scarborough

I've had take-away Calamari & chips from here a few times & it's been really good. I crave it at times :-) Staff are pleasant, plenty of seating & a great place to grab fish & chips to eat in the beach.

Highly recommend the Boat Shed fish & chips for 2. Freshly cooked cod in a tempura batter, chips & calamari. Was a really good sized portion!

Always love a small street with a row of small shops. Adds a holiday feel. The Boat Shed is on the corner, impossible to miss, looking over Scarborough Beach. Tiny shop with indoor and outdoor seating. Mostly fish n chips, etc on the menu. Super good. Fresh and tasty.

Pleased to say the Boat Shed lived up to the reputation surrounding it. The presentation was pleasing to the eye and tasty to the palate.

I've eaten here heaps and drive half an hour plus to go there and it's worth it. Thick snapper cooked perfectly, beer battered chips, thick calamari that is not chewy, salad and garnish with fried sweet potato. My kids love it as much as me. I've eaten tons of seafood this is the best I've ever had easily

Always busy, but never slow on service. Really well presented fish and chips. Love the crispy sweet potato curls served on top and so does my grandson. A nice batter on the fish without the dripping oils.

Great fish and chips - just a little more up market to any other takeaway on the peninsula - now we have found it we go out of our way to get our fish and chips from there.
