I've ended up here three times in the last couple of years as a suggested central location for lunch with business associates and friends and one thing I can say is that it's consistent. Consistently lousy hospitality (from greeting staff who haven't a clue what...More

Dear Nzlilibet, I have just read your review and firstly I want to apologise as the experience you had, is not what we strive to provide here at The Boat Shed. The waiter in question had his employment terminated last week. I recognise this does...More

Special occasion, three combined birthdays. Food was exquisite, service was faultless, wine choices were fine! Place can be a bit noisy with all the hard surfaces, but amazing team of people doing an amazing job. The Barramundi texture was typical of farmed Barra, try wild...More

We love coming to the boatshed. The view is spectacular and the food is lovely. However, the menu needs to be updated. It's been the same menu for such a long time. We probably won't go back until there is a new menu, as we...More

It would be the perfect spot. I would love to celebrate my Birthday there. I don't have the menu, but the prices are affordable. I was lunch time there and the view is amazing.
