    We dined on a weekday so understandably the restaurant was quiet but a bit too cold for comfort. Our server was lovely, helpful and fast. Food was nice and fresh. Upon reflection of our receipt we didn't receive 25% off our food as promised during January/February so this was slightly disappointing. Overall might be a better visit during the weekend when more people present to improve the ambience and the heat!

My partner and I had a good time and we definitely will be back another time to enjoy another great experience :) thank you so much

    Booked the wing Wednesday for 6:30pm. Arrived at 6:25 pm and placed order at 6:30pm. Drinks arrived shortly after. First portion of wings arrived at 19:15. I asked to place the next order even though I hadn't finished the wings as it took 45 minutes to get the first portion. Waiter came over at half past to take away the plates and asked if we wanted to place the next order of wings. We told them that someone had already done this however we were told in fact that they had not. So an hour in for 6 wings each for myself and partner. Asked to be charged for what we have eaten and cut out losses. They did take 10% off as an apology. The waiter was apologetic but having one cook is a bit mental especially when just eat orders took the priority over diners. Cannot recommend. All you can eat wing Wednesday is not accurate if it takes 45 minutes for a portion to arrive, then not ordering more knowing it would take as long as it did. Also the place was very cold, we couldn't take our jacket off and I had to get a blanket from the car for my dog.

    Service was amazing. Staff were on the ball even though it was bust on arrival. They were friendly and attentive. Food was amazing, drinks were good. Nice cocktails. Only downfall was it was cold inside but remembering its an older building in the gallowgate of let it slide. Will definitely visit again.

    Service was good but food arrived slowly and was just above par. Staff friendly and apologetic for slow food delivery. Food was compt at 50% due to this. Liked the ambience and Red Bull sports on loop. Good piped cider and my pulled pork burger was ace, pulled pork sandwich and chicken and waffles were very average, good onion rings. Would like to go back to try ribs and wings and give it another crack. Good staff saved the day !!!

    Was in tonight before a gig in the barrowlands. Food was great and really reasonably priced. Staff and general service was brilliant. Was a little bit cold when we first arrived but as it got busier the place warmed up. Was really busy before we left so definitely recommend booking a table in advance! We will definitely be back.

    The music they play is tailored to whatever is on at Barrowland. This provided the perfect atmosphere for us as it got us hyped for the gig. The food is diner style but well above diner quality. I have no idea how they made somethingn as simple as chicken tenders so good. The staff are all lovely. I don't know our server's name but they were very helpful, even taking a photo for us. All of them are smiley and friendly. The absolute best.
