Visited The Boat Shed for dinner and was impressed with the food, service and atmosphere. The staff were outstanding catering to our every need. The food was superb. We had a table right by the water over looking Maroochydore. We will definitely be back. Definitely a highlight to our short stay.

After a quick Uber from our hotel we were greeted by views that equal any tropical island. We ate in the restaurant section, but tapas under the cottontree looked just as inviting. For the 2 of us we had a bottle of wine and a three course meal that cost just under $180. The meal was that exceptional it drove... More

Same wine list as restaurant. The restaurant itself. We did not dine there. booked out. After 2 trips to the takeaway for lunch we decided to go to... More

A friendly vibe is all this restaurant wants, and it has just that! combined with the views upstream of the Maroochy River system and sand banks place this restaurant as the must go place within the district

About 7 years ago, we had a bad experience here. We decided to visit again and this time we were very happy with the food and the service.

A little piece of paradise in a busy part of the world. The food was generous and delicious. This Restaurant celebrates everything Australia, food, beach, sun, sand, cool sea breeze and cold crisp beverages.

Amazing setting overlooking the Maroochy River. Drink service was slow to start with, though it did improve. My partner & I shared the olives with bread & the Mexican calamari. The calamari melted in your mouth with no taste of oiliness. For mains we ordered sword fish and duck, both were very tasty. Dessert we shared the pannacotta which was... More

The Boat Shed is located in Maroochydore and not Alexandra Headlands. Everything about the Boat Shed is positive. The staff is friendly and helpful, the quality of food is consistent, the menu is extensive, and it is BYO. When you have all that and a great view, you know you are blessed. My wife and I had the Baramundi. It... More
