    Trio combo was delicious, portion was actually to big but great variety. Wings were great also. Wife had a chicken burger which she thoroughly enjoyed. Get the cheesy chips also, very tasty.

    Dry tasteless burgers. Partner only managed to eat half of theirs. You'd think with so many others commenting on reviews that the burgers were dry that they'd take the feedback onboard and do something about it. Not worth the money when there are far better places doing a decent burger.

    Really good service. However when I walked in I was told there was no restaurant availability till 4:30 however booking on OpenTable I got straight in at 3pm. That would be my only criticism as this could lose them revenue and I'm a big Hard Rock fan and the merchandise till wasn't working the last time. So came back again service was good from the bar and our server. Hope to be back when visiting Glasgow again.

    The service once inside was excellent. The waitress very attentive and food very enjoyable. However, I can’t help but comment on the very aggressive bouncer manning the front door. When we approached the restaurant they moved to block our path and he was very short with myself and my friends, demanding to know what a group of young men thought we were doing by trying to enter the restaurant. It was only after making them aware we had a reservation that he stopped this behaviour. I can’t help but say that this took the shine off the experience and didn’t exactly get our visit off to a good start.

    Stuck in a table beside the kitchen door not much room to relax. Long wait to get served but as restaurant was busy we could see the reason. My wife’s grilled chicken had a section of chicken that was still pink . First time we have had any negatives about Hard Rock Glasgow

We both had the Glasgow burgers and enjoyed them immensely. We always enjoy a Hard rock experience and this one was one of the best! Thank you Glasgow xx

    Son’s 16th birthday. I put it in the booking it was my son’s birthday. Also a colleague had phoned me during the day to confirm our attendance I reminded them about my son’s special occasion. On arrival the restaurant was so busy. Music was incredibly loud we couldn’t hear our server. We had to ask her to repeat on several occasions. Our server didn’t know about our special occasion. She didn’t ask us and didn’t mention it. Very disappointing. We were told when ordering there were several things on the menu that we wanted that were not available. The birthday boy wanted the fried chicken burger. He couldn’t have it…. Not available. He had to opt for something else. My youngest child’s hotdog came but the bun had been completely split through so he couldn’t eat it properly and at one point just had to leave the split hot dog bun and eat the sausage will his fingers. He didn’t eat it- too much hassle for a 5 year old. Staff seemed rushed off their feet and forgetful. My husband had to remind them twice to bring the drinks and when they did the order was wrong. Husband asked for BBQ sauce and had to remind server twice . Even though it was my son’s birthday we didn’t even want to stay for dessert because of the experience. Again his birthday wasn’t mentioned- even though it had been pointed out twice. Very disappointing. Won’t be returning.

    It isn't difficult to make a good burger, but somehow they managed to make a absolutely garbage burger. Save yourself some money and go somewhere better. We will not be back at Hard Rock Cafe ever.

    Waiter was fab but the overall experience was average. Crammed in tables around the outside and inner circle made for difficulty in eating with shopping bags. Menu is quite limited unless you like burgers. Knew this beforehand but daughter wanted to try the experience.

    I've been to a few Hard Rock Cafés and found Glasgow a little disappointing. There isn't the ambience I've come to expect from HRC, there doesn't appear to be a lot of memorabilia and what there is is mounted so high you'd struggle to get a look at it. Our server was excellent, knowledgeable and helpful when there was an issue with my main (cold mash). My friend that I dined with, struggled to find a vegetarian option. I enjoyed the Buckfast cocktail which was somewhat of a novelty.

    First time here and would definitely go back. Came with my teenage daughter before a gig at the hydro and was a great pre-event location. Customer service was very good from the front door and made to feel welcome, our waiter for the night was really friendly and chatty and had good recommendations. We also got to request a few songs to be played. Food is a bit pricey however the quality was very good and served within a decent time too.

    Although the person's attention was very good, no one joined us at the table (we sat alone). The food took a while to come to the table. The burger was overcooked (hard). We wanted to order coffee after dinner and the answer was "the coffee machine is already off." It is not a response, nor an action, for a restaurant (especially if they offer coffee on the menu). Poor experience. I do not recommend it.

    Pretty good place ! I booked in the main restaurant but ended up getting a bar table .Music was perfect, and staff were on point . The food was good, and the steak was undercooked to what I wanted but was still worthwhile . Prices for drinks were a tad more expensive but a good night overall thanks to Dmitri for his service and also to the female member of staff with the cowboy hat was brilliant!

Alcoholic twisted shakes and hot fudge brownies are favourites for pudding.
