“Lovely place nice scenery”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

As a local it's a very lovely place to visit...


The staff are very nice and welcoming they always seems to be cheerful even if its wet cold and miserable

The seafood platter is wonderful I'm still waiting for the prawns which I was promised :)
However it is a very peaceful place with plenty character.
Therefore my husband and I where very disappointed to discover that they have a very limited menu and we spoke to the staff who told us that they didn't have vegetarians at the centre of the menu if the vegetarians wernt willing to eat seafood... and that we could go for a veggie burger and chips which was much cheaper at a place called 'Creggans' we where certainly not greatly impressed with this even though we are local we where with them at the pier house which we had booked and where looking forward to for our anniversary, we got the bill after the player and left it won't put us off thoughts we love the cosy bar area and always get a lovely reception from Jeff (the bar man)
Meals are average prices and presentation is lacking the wow factor but if you are after a seafood meal with staff who recommend other places its for u!!!!!!

Thank you for your review even if it leaves me very perplexed! You appear to like the place and the staff which is great and also the Seafood platter. The seafood platter comes with langoustines (large prawns) so I don't quite understand why you are still waiting for them. Our menu which is on our website cannot be described as limited by any stretch of the imagination and we certainly cater for vegetarians and in fact do an extremely good vegetarian burger. I am therefore completely perplexed by why we would want to suggest sending you somewhere else for one?? I have spoken to all my staff and they have no recollection of this obscure aspect of conversation. if you wish to come in again sometime and clarify this subject with me I would be more than happy to put the record straight. Regards Nick

“Very good food”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We stuck with seafood to go with the stunning views across the loch. I had wonderful mussel dish, highly recommend. My wife had the Cullen Skink which she enjoyed immensely! This was the first time she had and now she's a big Cullen Skink fan owing to the experience. The weather was nice and we were able to get a spot on the patio to enjoy the views and the scenery. It was made even more special since this was where my family emigrated from Scotland. Go and enjoy some great seafood and stellar scenery!

“Not quite there”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Food was okay, fresh but plainly prepared. More steamed veggies. Ok. Service was weird, somewhat disjointed-different people showing up constantly. Great location. Prices were reasonable. Not thrilled here, but it was what I tend to call good clean food, meaning healthy options just not the most interesting.

Thank you for your review although I am completely perplexed why it has taken you since July 2012 to post it and we are now in January 2013! We are most disappointed you only felt the food was okay although without more detail on both food and staff it is very difficult to comment further. Nonetheless I am sorry you did not have more positive comments to make but hope that perhaps you might come again someday although perhaps this is unlikely since you live in Chicago. Kind regards Nick

Whatr a great find, hidden amongst a few houses next to the small ferry Whilst we did not have lunch the menu looked good and the big log fire made for a welcoming stay

Reviewed November 10, 2012

We visited the pierhouse hotel today (sat 10/11/12) for some lunch, what a find the food was amazing we both had the mussels with crusty bread huge portion and so tasty. The staff were so nice. The outlook from the restaurant is stunning. Well worth a visit, we will certainly be back :)
