We enjoy your very pleasant ambiance and staff very helpful but need training to lift your restaurant to the pricing of menu. I had Fish Burger, batter too thick and fish dry and over cooked. The other 3 ladies felt a bit greasy and was wondering if there was a choice of grilled or bread crumbs beside batter, if so we were not told when ordering. Happy to give Oyster Shed another try and maybe make a better choice. See less

Had a great time here again. But having family in the seafood industry I was a little taken back with pricing on the platter. $75 Max ( Salt & Pepper calamari over seasoned with salt ) See less

Super fresh tasty seafood. We witnessed the work boat come in off the lease, and 20 minutes later stainless steel trays of oysters being brought into the restaurant and served to us. Under an hour from water to the plate! The Bay Bugs were not frozen, but fresh also. You can taste the difference! Not cheap...but you can't get freshness like that pretty much anywhere else. Lovely direct riverside location, very peaceful. All in all a lovely afternoon. See less

Great concept in a nice location sitting over the water. The menu has a variety of oyster options as well as other dishes. Service was polite and reasonably efficient. My one suggestion would be to try and serve larger oysters. For the price they were small compared to other options elsewhere and one choice was a little bland and could have benefited from some more flavour. Overall a different and enjoyable couple of hours certainly worth trying See less

We had been looking forward to our Oyster Shed experience given all the excellent reviews and what is a wonderful setting looking out to the oyster beds. However we were quite disappointed with the flavours of the food all of which was cooked well. However the chicken karaage and the salt and pepper calamari were extremely bland and the accompanying dips just didn't compliment. The prawn sliders were also lacking in flavour and the buns dry and broke apart. The fish tacos were disappointing and lacked any taste of Mexico. We had a 2 pm booking and the restaurant was quiet but service took 45 minutes and all the dishes arrived at the same time which seemed odd. I suspect there was an issue in the kitchen to explain things. The sweet potato chips were on the other hand excellent. Will give it another go sometime on the assumption that this was an off day.

Great new restaurant in Tweed. Opened in December 2021. Right on the river. So a great outlook to sit back and enjoy lunch. The Oyster Shed belongs to Catch a Crab. The menu has a good choice range. We all had something different. And nobody was disappointed. The only negative we experienced was the service. We were first in and were virtually last to get served. Its the only negative for the whole experience. Also there's a large crab for photo opportunities See less

I had calamari and grilled prawns. Both were cooked to perfection!! Can not fault at all 😊 serving is quite small. My partner had fish of the day which was Flathead, cooked perfectly but only 1 small piece, he was left hungry. Size of meals are quite small with a top end price. Seating Stools are uneven so quite daunting to sit on. Entree didn't arrive until after our mains were eaten. The excuse was "they are smashed out the back". So overall the food is of high quality, small servings, top end pricing. Just wish we received our entree (oysters) as an entree and not dessert See less

Seven of us on Sunday had lunch at the Oyster shed. Firstly we were met buy very pleasant staff and taken to our feasting table!! from then on the fresh seafood and drinks flowed. The food is fantastic, from the Mud crab special to ginger scallops and the oyster platters plus. The venue situated on the banks of the Tweed River is second to none. We will be back and a big thankyou to the Oyster Shed for such a memorable day !!!! See less

We were visiting Gold Coast for the weekend. My friends and I decided to escape the busy crowd of GC and head down to Tweed Heads for sunset and fresh seafood dinner instead. This hidden gem caught us by surprise! Only 25 minutes drive, we arrived in this lovely waterfront boutique bar surrounded by nature’s best - lovely views, friendly staff and really fresh seafood. The oysters and prawns were my favourite!! Next table ordered their seafood platter and it looked so good too! We also enjoyed watching fish jumping out of the water while the Pelicans hunt them down - quite entertaining! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a waterfront venue near Gold Coast, perfect place for a relaxing lunch or dinner. See less

Highly recommend The Oyster Shed, great little slice of life just off the main road. Met the owner Rob who spent the time telling me about his family run business, what a true Aussie legend! Great food and well priced drinks right on the River! What more can you ask for? See less

First time at the Oyster Shed. Great introduction giving a little history on the place and what was happening with the oysters in the area. For drinks ordered a Black Hops GOAT Hazy IPA and savignon blanc. For food ordered up oysters dressed four ways and calamari, whiting and chips. Very relaxed atmosphere. The place has not been open for very long but very enjoyable and will visit again. See less
