Always go to the Hard Rock Cafe in Glasgow when we visit my daughter who is at university, it’s our favourite lunch venue. Great food, atmosphere and music and the bbq burger is divine!!! Will be back!

Ich finde es im Hard Rock Café in Glasgow immer ein bisschen chaotisch... Trotzdem gehe ich gern hin weil ich das HRC an sich einfach gerne mag. Egal wo. 🙂 Die Steaks waren einwenig zu durch, aber sonst ok. Leider gibt es kein Filet Steak auf der Karte. 😕
Im Rock Shop war die Auswahl diesmal leider sehr bescheiden.

Husbands steak was grizzly and not quite cooked the way he asked but he was hungry and we had waited a while as it was busy so ate what he could. My burger was lovely. Ordered the fudge brownie for pudding it was amazing

Noisy,brash, American. Great for kids of all ages. Great cocktails. Yeah a bit overpriced but it’s Hard Rock, you’re paying for the brand

Sons 12th birthday celebration, myself and 6 boys on a Saturday afternoon! Everyone really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. The service from our waitress was excellent - couldn’t have done more for us, she had the whole restaurant sing happy birthday and presented son with a huge bowl of hot chocolate brownie and ice cream.... will definitely be back (as will all of my sons friends and family by the sound of it!)
Thank you Hard Rock Glasgow for a great day 👍
Tip: if your kids are just at that age of 50/50 adult/kid menu - take the kid menu - huge portions and burger practically same size as adult ££!

Was very busy when we arrived and could tell staff were rushed off their feet but they were still attentive and we received a great service. Judith was our server and she was really friendly and funny. It was my partners birthday so she gave him free ice cream and gave us some recommendations for bars as we were visiting glasgow from aberdeen. Really happy!

I dine in hard rock cafes anytime I’m abroad as the service and food is always of the highest standard. I eat in Edinburgh and Glasgow as often as I can with my family as we all love the food and unique experience of the restaurant.

The staff are very good. Very accommodating, we added 1 more person on last minute and this was no problem. The food was excellent and good value for money but did feel the drinks were quite expensive.

A restaurant chain that lives on reputation alone.
I had the smokehouse bbq combo.
Ribs were average and lacked sauce.
Pulled port was actually tough.
Fries were tasteless and seemed like they’d be fried and then re-fried to re-heat them.

Shame as the staff were great.

There are a lot of tables in a small dinning area. It made the experience cluttered and uncomfortable. The staff were friendly and tried their best but just too many tables for them to deal with.

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.

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
