The best prawn sandwich!

The only problem with the hut is choosing what to have! Fantastic fresh fish at great prices. Will be back.

We had read about the Seafood Hut before visiting Oban and we're looking forward to going - we were not disappointed! Whilst deciding what to have, we were offered a sample of the smoked salmon and the mussels. Both were delicious. We chose to share a seafood platter and we got mussels and scallops to go with that. Altogether, this... More

We visited this little seafood hut after reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor, and we weren't disappointed. After a very small portion of scallops at a local pub, I ordered both the scallops and the langoustines at the seafood hut so I'd have enough to eat. When they came out, I couldn't believe how massive the portions were! And... More

Just there for 'a snack'.... 20 tasty mussels for only £3.95... Brilliant. Other visitors were having a full array of seafood and all comments were positive. Next time I'll make it my 'meal of the day'.

This place offers unrivalled value for money. The fresh seafood served here is delicious and very reasonably priced. We visited on a lovely summers day which obviously made for a great experience. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and I have been telling everyone about it since our visit. We will make it our port of call on any... More

Head along the pier towards the Cal Mac ferry and look for the wee green hut, you won't be disappointed. We had a share platter for two for £15 which included all the seafood you could imagine - salmon, prawn, herring, mussels and squid amongst other things with some bread and dipping sauce thrown in for good measure. Right next... More

We visited the Green Shack Seafood bar, south pier in Oban, Scotland. This was recommended to us, by the Guest house we were staying at. It was busy when we arrived, but that was a good thing, as it showed how popular it was!! We were seen quite quickly and decided on the Seafood Platter for two at £14. We... More

The food was great and the price was reasonable! (95p per oyster, £3.50 for crab/prawn/salmon sandwiches, £3.95 for a tray of mussels, £25 for a sharing platter) The green little hut is just located between Wetherspoons and the ferry terminal, by the ocean so it was not difficult to spot. Only problem was that, there was only a long table... More

Stopped by for a quick light lunch. Weather was great as were the mussels and scallops. Freshly cooked on the quay side and ate on the quay side. Lovely.

This is a great little place by the ferry terminal. Portions are massive and taste so fresh. It was the best I've tasted in a long time.
