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.
Located above the restaurant you can also find our new Cocktail Lounge & Pool hall, the perfect place to kick back and relax after a long days work, or celebrate a special occasion.

To be honest it's like any other Hard Rock Cafe in the world, but I suppose that's the point. The menu is rather limited, but the quality of what we ate was top notch. Service also excellent. I'd have to say it's a bit over priced, but not so much that it's off putting.

First table had a freezing draft and moved to another. All tables very close together with not alot of room. Feels like there was too many tables! Covid guidelines not in here! Starter nice. Macaroni bit bland with dry chicken. Service was OK staff very nice

We normally love the Hard Rock Cafe, but on this occasion we were sat at the bottom of the stairs and it was absolutely freezing. My 2 children had to wear their coats and hats for the entire meal, it was so cold. It was also a very limited menu and my daughters chicken tenders were burnt.

Would never go back, I have been to Hard Rock's all over the world and Glasgow is the worst. The menu us super limited, food was sent back because it was cold. The cocktails were sour and we were unable to drink them. The presentation of the desserts, "slapped on the plate". Waiter couldn't care less, felt as if it was a chore for him to even talk to us

The food and atmosphere was amazing! The staff were great and one member of our party had dietary requirements (gluten and lactose free) and they catered to it amazingly and even came over to explain the changes made to the normal menu to make it gluten free and how there is separate areas in the kitchen for preparation of gluten free food to avoid cross-contamination, which gave great piece of mind and showed there was real care taken for peoples needs. There were no faults, everything about our meal was exceptional!

The food was wonderful. Could not fault the service. We had a 30 minute break between courses, which was great. The cocktails were amazing and I love my free glass. I will be back.

The only positive thing I can say about Hard Rock Cafe is how my partner and I were greeted at the door. We didn't feel particularly welcome at the restaurant because the server who served us that night was a bit rude.
Sorry but I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to any of my friends.

We have, as many Hard Rockers do, eaten in many of your venues around the world.

We still think Glasgow is up there with the very best particularly for the service and interior.

And of course the food!

Prices? Any restaurant of this standard sending there customers home FULLY FULL of great burgers and drinks for between £15 and £25 a head…..

Can’t beat it.

Improvement? Maybe vary the rock music to suit the time of day?

Small thing but you did ask….xxxx

Booked a table for drinks and all the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Had a few cocktails and all were delicious. Service was quick and wouldn't hesitate to book again. Didn't have any food, so can't comment on that but the dishes we saw looked really appetising and there was plenty of choices on the menu
