Visited Trongate restaurant on Sunday. Very funky decor. We were seated upstairs. Table of 2 against the wall are extremely small. No where to hang jackets upstairs so please take note of that. Not exactly comfortable being crammed with winter coats at the side of you the entire time you have dinner. Food came relatively quick. Wings were awesome. Drinks menu has great variety. Music is absolutely too loud. You actually need to raise your voice to have a normal conversation with your other half. To the point you’re so close to the next table they would be as well joining in. Portion sizes for the burgers are huge so be prepared to take an age if you’re attempting to finish it. Tastes amazing though. Toilet doors all open put the way which is weird. The men’s are right next to the ladies but at a right angle so if both you open the doors at the same time to exit the doors crash into each other. I’m all up for music on loudly in these types of places but the day I was in was far too loud. Maybe chill a bit with the volume. Overall, amazing food and will go back. Maybe on a quieter day.

The service was excellent as always,

My friend and i got the double xx Nashville hot chicken and I'm sorry to report that it was really dry and without heat.

We always get the same thing and love it but sadly the trongate buck's has not lived up to expectation.

If you want the real bucks bar experience, go to the original one. The new one isn't as good. Booths are too small for normal sized people, and the food isn't as good.

First visit to Buck's at the Trongate. The food on the night was excellent and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Our only dilemma will be West Regent St or the Trongate. It could create a friendly rivalry between the two.

Delicious food and great value for money
We were seated down beside the door to the toilets. Something was apparently being fixed out the back and the cool air breezing in when the door was open was absolutely baltic. Had to keep my coat on throughout the meal due to this. Other than that I would recommend this restaurant

Interesting restraunt with unusual decor! We found interest in working out who was in all the arrest photos😂! Was a lovely place to eat dinner/have drinks! Everything was perfect from the chic decor to the amazing food and brilliant customer service! Unfortunately we didn’t catch any of the waiters/waitresses names but everyone was ensuring we were enjoying our meal/there for all our orders at the right time! Couldn’t possibly fault your Trongate restaurant and well Definetly be back to try all the amazing sounding cocktails!!

I thought I'd try the Trongate restaurant as I'm a huge fan of the W Regent St one however it didnt live up to the expectation. The staff were both helpful and friendly it was early afternoon so it wasnt too busy which was fine. The chicken was dry and not up to the standard you expect from Bucks Bar. I wouldnt return to the Trongate restaurant. For the money I'm paying for fried chicken I would expect a consistent standard across both restaurants.

Sadly I’m writing this review about the experience l received on Saturday 02/11/19. NO CHICKEN WINGS???? Seriously man it’s like half the menu🤦🏻‍♂️ Then to add no onion rings either opted for the famous Buckora and was majorly let down with 6 pitiful small hard basi chicken pakora major disappointment:( Then to add salt to the wounds bill came no discount or anything of the sort lol then when paying the bill see everyone’s plates around me with chicken wing🤷🏻‍♂️ Asked a staff member what’s going on here and quickly got told just got a delivery of wings no other explanation.
