Only a few items available on the menu, which is fine as we are just coming through Covid. However I would expect the dishes that are on to be fresh. My haddock was clearly re-fried, it was dry and the batter was a dark brown...colour. The butter was rock hard and with plastic knives impossible to spread, one of the bun's was dry and slightly burnt on top (another customer sent his back). I asked for a real knife to spread the butter, which was a waste of time as the assistant wasn't the slightest bit interested. My husbands cod was ok although a very small portion for the price tag of £9.50! To top it all they were out of vinegar!! As a substitute they gave us HP Brown sauce, bizarre! I did not complain at the time because as I stated the staff were not the least bit interested!More

The seafood in this restaurant is perfect. We had a Cullen Skink with a glass of white wine and enjoyed.

Staying in Stirling. Came here, as on previous visits, food has been excellent. Got here at 3.20, to be told they weren’t serving food till 5. I pointed out that their Facebook page and website, Did not say this and they should be open. Not...even an apology. Very disappointing as we have always enjoyed the food. It isn’t difficult to update Social Media and your website. People should not be expected to guess when you are open.More

We ordered Cullen Skink soup and avocado on toast for Lunch. The soup was served in a desert bowl and the sandwich consisted of just one slice of bread with some avocado on it. Both were very small portions and not worth the price (9£...each).More

We had a great experience here. The kids meals were home-cooked and of good quality. Adults had the platter from the local smokehouse, which was utterly bomb. The pate needs a special mention. Washed down with a crisp cold glass of white. Nothing approaching a...complaint.More

Arrived on a cold wet Monday lunchtime with a dog. Sort of dog friendly but not allowed in restaurant only the outside areas that had an awning. We sat down and were given menus and a long list of what seafood wasn’t available which was...very disappointing. We ordered our food from the limited menu, 2 of us had the salmon brioche and 2 had the crayfish sandwich, they were expensive at £9 each and came with less than fresh bread and rolls and a few greasy salad leaves. A pot of coleslaw or a more hearty salad would have made these meals better value. Another party member had the tomato and mozzarella salad - a total of 4 bits of tomato was in the salad again we have have had better. Be aware that an automatic service charge of 10% is added to bills. We wont be returning for a few reasons, cold seating area, limited seafood and expensive.More

Meal was on the menu as a sort of fish pie with salmon prawn and haddock but when it arrived it was missing two thirds of ingredients. The staff started cleaning the toilet and left toilet door open, very suttle for us to leave. Then...a service charge was automatically added to bill. I asked for this to be removed due to poor meal and service but this met with objection. Really not a good experience and will not return.More

Our group of 5 had lunch at the Luss Seafood Bar. As others have pointed out, the lunch menu is quite limited but everything we tried was fresh and well prepared. The salmon, supplied by the smokehouse next door, is some of the best I've...had. However, the service was very slow and they seem to be understaffed. All the dishes we ordered were cold, yet we still had to wait almost half an hour after ordering.More

I have been here 3 times now but every time it gets worse. Not sure why this should be classified as a seafood bar, when all you can get is bread with smoked salmon, which is the same thing you can buy at the smoke...house located few meters away for a cheaper price. We had to wait ages to get 3 sandwiches and it was clear the place is understaff. One of the waitress was particularly rude and annoyed by customers. Even simple requests seemed to be impossible,like having an extra slice of bread. I will not go back to this overpriced bar...More

We have visited Luss a number of times and are staying nearby. Went in at 2:45 asking if we could have a table and had rather surly reply that the kitchen shuts in 45 mins and that a load of people came in and it...wasn’t worth waiting for a table. We observed many people finishing and wanting to leave. Maybe in such a touristy area you can get away with a lack of customer service. When you run your own business in a customer service industry yourself it is sad to experience.More
