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.

If you are going to have fish & chips anywhere in Scarborough- this is the place! Amazing food, great staff and a simple menu makes this place the best on the peninsular. Across 2 years we've eaten here often & never had a bad meal or experience! The boat shed is usually very busy, so if you can't find a... More

By far the best fish and chips in the area. This is our only destination when we have the craving. Great prices, generous serves and lovely, busy staff. If you are heading over on a weekend get in early, very busy but well worth the wait.

Had lunch here after spending some time on the beach. The fish had the crispiest batter and chips complimented it very well too. Staff were very friendly.

I was never a huge fan of fish and chips until I had takeaway from The Boat Shed. Their meals were always fresh and never oily like many other fish n chip shops. The meals also come with a bit of salad which is nice 🙂.
