This place was awesome. We had the 'Fish and Chips for 2' and it would have easily fed 3 hungry people. Food was great, we'll definitely be heading back for more next time we're in Scarborough

We just love the lightly battered generous servings of cod and salad that we have every week and I mean, every week 😊

My mum & dad took me there for my birthday lunch today - to be honest I really did not feel like it because I am not a big fish fan and had had fish & chips the night before. But I couldn't be rude and had to eat it and I must say I damn well enjoyed it! The... More

This has to be the best fish and chip shop, maybe in the south east of Queensland. We were there a few days ago, and it hasn't changed in any way from the last time we were there .Got the best ocean views, then there is the food. They have the best batter of all and the chips are always... More

I can't say enough about the absolutely delicious seafood baskets our family discovered at The Boat Shed during Easter weekend. The drive to Scarborough was relaxing and enjoyable, and when we discovered that the Boat Shed was open on Easter Sunday we were delighted. The fish, calamari and prawns were in the crispest, freshest, crunchy light batter, and the chips... More

The Boat Shed is our excuse to visit Redcliffe from Logan since we discovered it years ago. Very fresh fish with tasty crunchy batter. Chips are done perfect never soggy. Served with their signature topping of crunchy carrot chips and grilled corn strips and green salad. We'll keep coming back.

This restaurant has a great view of the ocean , very relaxing, also easy to park.. The fish & chips is very good, but it is not hard to fry food. The fish is very fresh & the chips are nice & crunchy but the salad is terrible just a little bit of green grass & nothing else.

We had the BEST fish burgers here.. we were visiting from out of town and decided on fish and chips. We loved the atmosphere, helpful service and the freshest fish burgers ever.. with the added bonus of the sweet potato curly bits! Just delicious and great value! Thank you.

Our family regularly travels from Brisbane to Scarborough to enjoy the relaxing beach and beautiful surroundings. The highlight of our visits however is the amazing seafood at The Boat Shed. Not only is it super fresh and tasty, but it is also good value for money. We will continue to visit The Boat Shed and look forward to each visit.
