Great atmosphere and we loved the food. Balinese Market Fish is a standout and my friends were very impressed by the fish and chips and Parma.

Try the passionfruit Mojito cocktail - AMAZING!!!

We enjoyed a Mother’s Day lunch here. The service was excellent and prompt. The ‘mothers’ all received a free glass of bubbly, a nice touch. The food arrived promptly and was very nice. Finally, the bill wasn’t a shock.

Variety of food on menu, mixture of prices $10-$40 depending on meal. Staff quite helpful and checked in regularly. Large space with lots of tables. Restaurant accommodated to children with a children’s menu and seating.

Was night time when we visited so sadly missed the water views. Outside seating area looked great though.

Great place to go for your birthday with friends and family. Lovely food although not much on the menu for deserts. They were overpriced and the sticky date was dry and had no sauce.
Good service and lovely atmosphere.

Experience was great until the waiter who had not served us or interracted with us at all accused us of leaving without paying the bill. He followed us to the carpark, claiming we had not paid. I had paid about halfway through our meal, when I was returning from the toilet

Service was a little lacking, as it was a quite night we would have expected to been checked on other then once. We may have ordered more drinks that way.

I am sorry to say that our latest experience at the Boat Shed was very ordinary. We have been here many times before and really enjoyed it but it was a very disappointing experience on Sunday. The service was pretty lacklustre- we were offered coffees on arrival and then after 30mins of waiting for someone to take our food order, we had to ask to have our food orders taken. We then waited for AGES for the food to come out and there were hardly any other customers in the place. When the food finally arrived the bacon on some plates was basically still raw and so some were sent back. The mushrooms were supposed to have feta and there was supposed to be a rocket and mint salad-no feta and no mint and the mushrooms were generally pretty awful. I was also disappointed that there were no sweet items on the breakfast menu- only savoury items. I hate leaving negative feedback but something has definitely changed out there and it's not for the better.

Lovely meal and ambience at The Boatshed Lake Hume mid week.
We enjoyed a drink out on the balcony and then decided, as it was an early booking to stay out on the balcony.
Food and service were both excellent.
Well done Boatshed!
