The food was okay - under cooked chips- the other bucks in town is much much better than this one.

Excellent food and service! Bit draughty (was an extremely cold day anyway) at the table for 2 downstairs but otherwise enjoyed the experience. Definitely want to go back to sample more of the menu!

I visited on Saturday late afternoon with my partner. We know how busy it gets so booked in advance to make sure we got a table. We were seated very quickly and well looked after from start to finish. The staff are all lovely, attentive and good chat. The food is consistently delicious and the atmosphere is chilled but cool. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone. If you like chicken, hot sauce and beer then look no further.

Atmosphere was lively but more than we expected but still manageable, food was great!! My partner never liked the sauce that came on his but if the sauce wasn’t there he would have ate the lot! At least my portion was big enough we shared and we still left full! Will be back 😊 oh and it only cost £36 for the 2 of us including wings!!! More than worth the money x

Yes although if you are used to the deals in Bucks in West Regent Street check with the Trongate one as they did not have the same Tuesday Burgers / Wing Wednesday or the same drink list. The website should have pointed that out. Anyway overall satisfied

Food was good. The only thing I didn’t like was twice we got told we only had ten minutes to leave as they needed the table back. It’s as if they have your money and now get out ☹️

Waited almost an hour for starters but they were definitely worth the wait. The food was incredible and staff were lovely.

We were sat at the table closest to the door and found that there was a quite a breeze everytime the door opened. This wouldn't stop me from going back though!

All in, would highly recommend!

Food and service was very good at a reasonable price. Only negative is tables very small for two.
Apart from that I will definitely return and would highly recommend.

Burgers and service excellent. Desserts a bit of a let down. The key lime pie filling was more of a lemon curd consistency

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.
