In theory this is just a small shed on the Pier at Oban but it is a Mecca if you like seafood! Always fresh, always tasty and always served with a smile even on a colder, wet day.

We popped by the hut in Oban, for the first time this week during our visit to the highlands. We all very much enjoyed the platter for our tea. Thank you 😁

The mussels and the lobster are absolutely magnificent, the only place where you could eat your seafood pure, not smothered in a creamy sauce. Fresh, delicious, just one remark: not enough space to eat, had to sit somewhere on a pier.

We stopped here on the way to Isle of Skye. This is our third time here and the food is fantastic as always. My wife and I both love seafood. We had seafood cold plater last time, scallops and mussels. This time we had hot...mussels and hot scallops in garlic butter sauce. It was delicious and super fresh. If you are at Oban or on the way to NC500 it’s a must stop for seafood. The staff are also very friendly here. Also the price you pay is very reasonable for the portions you get. If only it was not far from where we live, we will be here everyday.More

The muscles in garlic butter were cooked perfectly. Soo much...food for a fantastic price. We watched our muscles being made. Wish we had found this place earlier.More

Wow!! This should be on everyone's list of places to visit and dine at while in Oban. The seafood is so fresh and plentiful. Great selection. It's open all day until about 6 and very popular for lunch. Dining is casual, outdoor, picnic style.

We visit Oban regularly and the seafood bar is one of the places we visit regularly.On this occasion one of our purchases the mussels was a mixture of previously cooked mussels and fresh mussels undercooked. We also had an issue with payment.The counter assistant had...no change in her till and when asked to get change from the other assistant refused saying she can’t access another till.My option to join the back of queue again and get the other assistant.Another option was pay by card but there was a minimum spend of £20.More

This place may be small but they know what they are doing with seafood. It was queued out all the time. We thoroughly enjoyed the crab and prawn sandwiches...beautifully fresh and tasty. The mussels and the seafood platter were extremely popular. Great

The food here was amazing cant deny that. Ordered a weird combination of crayfish and chips to try something different to the woman behind the counter cooking them pulling a face and glaring at me. I then proceeded to wait for the chips to be...cooked only to have another dirty look given my way. It isn’t worth going except for the food.More
