Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Contacted them via Facebook to see if it was possible to get a seafood platter when we were getting the ferry to Mull. They were more helpful, the seafood platter was waiting for us when we arrived for the ferry, they packed it my cool...bag with ice and what a brilliant meal we had on arrival at our holiday cottage.More

This place is such fun and the fresh seafood is fantastic. All the family enjoy this place and talk about it all the time. Take tissues/wipes!

Cash only. Have small change. Had 5 lunches there, tried various items: scallops, cold shrimp, lobster sandwich, mussels, crab sandwich, prawn sandwich. Value-for-money. Convenient location near Calmac harbour. Communal benches: Grab a seat, eat and make friends with fellow diners/travellers! Eat fast though, in the...colder months the cold wind makes the food turn cold fast.More

I bought 5 oysters for eating outdoors at the hut. They were large, fresh, beautifully prepared and exceptionally good. Can't recommend highly enough.

Got to sample some great seafood from the local waters in Oban. Service quick and courteous, prices good and the seafood was excellent. Make this a must do on your things in Oban.

Cash only!! Great quality and value. We got the seafood platter for 2 and asked for it to be wrapped up as we were heading for the ferry. We saved it for dinner than night with a bottle of white and we’re not disappointed. Lots...of variety and delicious.More

Really disappointed with food and service. Mussels over cooked and scallops bland & not seared. Sliced supermarket bread which was soggy and pretty awful. Claimed not to have enough cash/coins and so gave us less change back than was due when we paid. Server thought...this was acceptable! Very strange given they only accept cash and there is a bank very close by!More

Locally known at The Green Shack and located by Oban’s ferry terminal. Delicious seafood, cooked onsite, table eating area outside but covered by tarpaulin. Unpretentious, friendly and reasonably priced, a taste of Scotland 😋

had read about this venue whilst looking for places to visit in Oban , reviews sounded good so popped along. its at the end of the harbour area , right beside where you would board the ferry, so a prime spot ! it was a...really nice and sunny day so the queue was big but moving quickly. we had a round of sandwiches each , one crab and one hot smoked salmon. both very good especially the salmon. we just sat on the jetty/harbour low wall and watched the world go by. good food and would visit again !More

We went here expecting a restaurant environment. What we found was a seafood hut on a pier with a couple of picnic tables that had no seating available. There was no line to speak of, and our place was within walking distance, so we ordered...the Grand Platter to go. It was prepared quickly and we carried it back, trading off the heavy container from time to time! Inside we found every kind of seafood imaginable, with some I'd never had before along with the absolute best salmon I've ever had. Great place, and definitely will be back.More

Alright, I'll try... Outblo*dystanding! This is literally the best seafood I've ever eaten, anywhere! The mussels in garlic butter, the prawn sandwich, the smoked salmon sandwich, and oh sweet baby Jesus those Langoustine in garlic butter! This place needs booths so nobody has to watch...you gorge yourself, butter dribbling down your chin and wrists; definitely not a place for first dates! Be warned, it's cash only. Brilliant service, even better food, will return every time I'm able.More

Fabulous sea food hut on the pier. We were lucky on both occasions last week that the queue was small and we got served very quickly. Scallops cooked right in front of us, mussels so fresh, and huge oysters, which were just amazing. So creamy....A must do in Oban if you like sea food. Very popular.More

If you love seafood then you should definitely visit. The seafood platters are epic and the prawn sandwiches are jam-packed with prawns. It’s really good value and service is quick
