We stayed in Port Douglas for 4 days while snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. It was such great pizza that we visited for 3 meals in 4 days!

After enjoying a long relaxing day at our accomodation in Port Douglas, we decided to stay in for the night with some wine and order pizza from the beach shack which offers free delivery. Have heard such great things and was really looking forward to it. We called, and called to place an order but the phone line just came... More

Great place to eat .. food is as good as Salsa. Just a shame about the staff and the huge turn over and the fact that they don't recognise locals. Young people are not the best at hospitality. They would be well advised to hire mature people like Lure does.

Hi AhShenzi, Cheers for the shout out about the food - Salsa is one of my personal faves so that was cool to read! All of our staff bar 3 are over 30 and we have a super stable crew so wondering who you encountered. Anyway, we will make sure our team is aware of your comment so hopefully it... More

We came here for dinner twice during our stay because we just loved it so much the first time! I had a homemade delicious curry the first night and an amazing meaty pizza the second. Both nights were perfect, great food and the waitress remembered our preferred drinks though the dinners were a week apart! Fabulous service and a reasonable... More

This place is often busy. The kitchen has a varied menu but having eaten both Pizzas and more complex dishes here, I would recommend the pizzas. Calamari was tasty too.

Beach Shack offers a great atmosphere with quality food and service. The pizza and pasta is superb, and the Macca stack is an amazing vegetarian option or can be served vegan. Great food at reasonable prices, friendly staff in a super cool venue complete with sandy floor. Dine in or takeaway, either/or it's a must Port Douglas food experience.

We visited the Beach Shack for dinner on Saturday night. The staff were friendly and the food was fantastic. We were really in the mood for pizza so we had the garlic and cheese pizza for an entrée, so yummy. We had a meatlovers for a main, so delicious. Really good value for money.

The Beach Shack has free delivery in Port Douglas which was perfect for us while we were staying in a holiday apartment. The supreme pizza was absolutely delicious, hot and delivered on time!
