Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow is located in the heart of Glasgow’s historic Style Mile in the restored, renaissance-inspired Athenaeum Theatre. Established in 1893, this striking theatre has musical history of its own: originally a music school, it later became the home to the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama. With historic musical memorabilia gracing every wall, Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow fits right into the historic charm of the area and honors the history of the Athenaeum Theatre.

Absolutely everything about mine and my girlfriend's evening at HRC Glasgow was incredible. Our food was amazing, our server Bryce continuously made us laugh with everything he was doing whilst both on the job with us/other customers, and on his few minutes of downtime inbetween, and the atmosphere within the restaurant was also great. If I am ever back in Glasgow, a trip to HRC is a must.

Very busy and noisy as tables are so close together had to shout so my partner could hear me. Took a while to come and was just ok, however my partner got sick hours later and was up all night

We had a table for 6 , was very tight fitting .6 adults on a hot night . Felt our arms and meals were all on top of each other . Could've done with air conditioning. Would definitely go back though , food was great but I'd get 2 tables (4 seats at both ) & have 3 adults at each , giving us a bit more elbow room x

Really enjoyed our visit to hard Rock Glasgow. We had a reservation but had to change to an earlier time. The staff were very accommodating and quickly had us seated. Our food was excellent and probably one of the best meals I've had in Glasgow.

Delicious food, great service, nice place, awesome atmosphere with good music, yet not too loud to be able to talk with each other. And the prices wasn’t bad at all! I’ve had lots of worse food for the same price at other restaurants. Definitely worth the visit.

The service was fast and the food was excellent however me and my partner both felt very rushed as we were told the kitchen wanted home. Then when it came to desserts were told we couldn’t have whipped cream because they had already wiped down. If the place is in such a rush to go home at half 9 then there shouldn’t be tables available to book at that time. I love the Hard Rock Cafe and the food is great. I will be back however I don’t want to feel rushed.

Sara served us and her customer service was outstanding! We we're celebrating getting married and Sara made the meal feel very special.

Our food was also amazing, large portions and very tasty. We would 100% go back here again and would recommend to others.

Thank you! 😊

We had a fabulous time celebrating my husband’s 40th birthday and also our boys first experience of The Hard Rock which they thoroughly enjoyed and can’t wait to go.
The most special part was hubby’s birthday ice cream with candle and everyone singing happy birthday to him 😂😂

Staff were very welcoming and attentive. The ambiance was good but unfortunately the noise level was a bit too high, this may of been due to the fact that it was a weekend. Food was lovely!

Good experience at the hard rock cafe. You know what you are expecting. Food was good, ribs in particular were excellent. Service was friendly and effective and drinks well made.

It's actually a relatively small space, and we were seated in the centre 'pit', so it does feel like other diners are a bit on top of you - but definitely wouldn't stop us coming back.

Tasty well presented lunch but the sides were lukewarm to cold. Very pricey for alcoholic drinks and would amount to a very expensive night out but OK for a lunchtime treat. Overall we enjoyed and would be happy to return for a quick dinner

Friendly service from judith who also helped me chose my meal as I was undecided what to go for. Went for the salmon on Judith’s recommendation and it was fab! The staff looked after us well and we enjoyed our lunch for our daughter’s 18th.

Great night out, boys loved it and our waitress Michaela made our night by getting everybody to sing happy birthday to our 18 year old son. Food was a hit and they catered for my wife's dietary requirements without a fuss, the staff were very knowledgeable.

I did not enjoy this experience atoll. The juice tasted like they hadn’t washed the glasses out properly , the glass had an awful smell. The food wasn’t up-to much either. The prices for the food & drink is shocking. Definitely over rated. However the women serving us was very welcoming , she was the only good thing about that experience

Dissapointing visit. Have been to HRC in glasgow a lot and recently prices have gone up but quality has gone right down.
Wont be rushing back any time soon.
If you are going to charge £13 for a starter it needs to be much better.
