Great pizza, great fish & great staff. A very cool place to eat, families welcome with a pool table and cold beers while you wait. Plus delivery if you don't want to leave the house.

Great food and great service. The sand on the floor in a restaurant was quirky but fun. Loved the Bread & Butter pud!

A very relaxed casual eatery. Great tasting pizzas and friendly staff. The children loved the sandy floors and absolutely loved the pizzas. In fact we ate there on several more occasions. Some of the tastiest pizzas I've had in a long time. Thanks guys.

Decided to give this place a go on our last night in port douglas. A short stroll from oaks lagoon, the beach shack has a relaxed environment. Ordered a pizza or two which were served quite promptly. Nice place
