Encouraged by a review in Hunter Hunter we stopped for lunch on the way home from a Sydney trip. A well organised queue system allowed one of us to sign in and line up while the other grabbed a table in the attractive riverside area....It's not cheap and not fast (but staff did tell me they have another grill on the way to speed things up) but the oysters were lovely and fresh. Even the bread was delicious with a delightful cruch on the crust. We will definately stop here again so we can try more of the interesting variety of toppings both grilled and cold.More

We were excited to travel up to this place an was greeted by a lovely simple set up and beautiful views. The place served their local oysters and smoked fish on premises. The smoker was giving off a lot of smoke when we were there...but other than that, it was a lovely place to enjoy and relax. The smoked fish was delicious but a bit pricey at $25 with a little bit of salad. The oysters were fresh and their cheeses recommended. My family was very happy with the place and I will visit again with other friends. A good local place to support indeed!More

Booked table for 5 people overlooking the Hawkesbury River on a stunning day. This is just such an amazing unpretentious place for lunch if you love seafood, being close to the river with great friendly service, competitive prices, freshest produce and byog. We started with...oysters, tiger prawns, smoked trout with salad and the best smoked oysters just out of the smoker. This was our first visit and definitely there’ll be many more. Big thanks to Peter, Deb and all the friendly team.More

Great friendly staff a nice rustic setup and good honest food. BYO wine and glasses. The oysters were great, the salmon is smoked on site as is the mullet and are both very good although a little on the expensive side at $25 with a...basic but good salad. Great location on the Hawksbury River waterfront. Highly recommend.More

Yesterday I visited the Oyster shed and collected a large amount of oysters and prawns for an end of year staff celebration. The staff greeted me with smiles and laughter, they were very covid aware and covid safe. The prawns were sensational and the oysters...were amazing! We will be sure to get back there asap. What a great team of people, the girls behind the counter are all smiles and welcomingMore

What an amazing setting to enjoy fresh Fresh Oysters and Wild caught Prawns.We were greeted by the friendliest and most helpful staff who were standing behind cold display counter of the most sumptuous looking oysters I have seen . We purchased Tiger Prawns and 2...dozen Sydney Rock Oysters which we took to they seated area by the water..WOW !!! those oysters were the best ever and the prawns were also to die for. I could rave on and on ..so good. Well we bought another 2 dozen Sydney rocks and a dozen Pacific oysters ( bigger ones) another Kg of Tiger Prawns and a Kg of Hawkesbury River School prawns , which were caught that morning, to take home and make real pigs of ourselves. We will make the trip down to the Oyster shed at least once a fortnight... Have to try some smoked fish and Blue Swimmer Crabs... Thankyou, you make my weekends more enjoyable...
