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.

    Service was very good, attentive staff, quick food delivery. Food was good, do think it’s a bit pricey, but suppose you’re paying for the location too. Would go back again, no big complaints.

    Waited an hour for food as waitress mixed up food tickets. 1 meal was missing something & they brought my partner the wrong burger at first. Waitress was very friendly & apologetic. Food was 4/5. Manager was very apologetic & comped the whole bill so probably would return

    Our starter order was wrong. Our main course arrived after 75 mins. Some of this was missing. The steak was not cooked correctly. Drinks were missing from our order. The chicken fajitas were tasteless. We were so disappointed. Money was taken off and items were removed from the bill As an apology but our special event was not what we had hoped for.

    Food was delicious. Prices have went up though which are not reflected on the menu. Most mains start at £15 upwards. We had quite a wait between starters and main course - not too sure why. Waiter was nice enough. Would visit again. The atmosphere is class.

    Was looking forward to eating there, however we were greeted by someone who wasn’t sure where our seat was. Drinks took a long time to come. Food took even longer. Servers were rude and even asked if they could keep the change for their tip, definitely won’t be back.

    The usual bouncing reception when walking into a Hard Rock. All of the staff seemed friendly and energetic. Food was well prepared, we went for a selection of starters and sides and there was more than enough for the two of us. Prices are starting to get high but I think that's the case everywhere. One downside, don't go in here if you want to remain tethered to the digital world, my mobile reception was almost non-existent and I couldn't see any WiFi network to use. But a digital de-tox is always a good thing.

    Very disappointed with my visit. I have a child family member with a severe wheat allergy and we struggle to find places with good gluten free menus. I done my research and the Hard Rock Cafe came highly recommended for its GF options so I booked for our family. He was so excited that he could finally be getting a burger in an actual burger bun (he’s 6). The waiter was great. Explained the GF kids menu and we ordered the burger. The waiter came back shortly afterwards to tell us that the chef ‘could not find’ the GF burger buns so he could just have the patty only instead. We could get this at any restaurant to be honest and the promise of a GF burger in an actual bun was what made us book and travel all the way into Glasgow for this meal in the first place. The rest of the parties food was very nice and the waiter, I think his name was Craig, was excellent and very attentive. But the GF thing ruined the whole experience for us. Really disappointing.

    Great service from the minute we arrived. I would like to apologise to the girl at the end that the gave me my bill. She was treated unexpectedly by a member off my group. So I'm really sorry again ,I didn't know until I left the restaurant. Again I would like to thank all members of the staff .

    Could only get a table in the bar, and therefore could not get a main meal like we wanted did not want a bar meal. Was really disappointed, as when you click on the menu it took you to the main menu not the bar menu. Was really looking forward to get a meal here. Decide not to eat at the Hard Rock. Hopefully the next time we will get it the next time

    Firstly the staff were second to none, really friendly & helpful. Unfortunately though there were too many tables leaving no room for staff to manoeuvre and the food was average American diner. Sad to say I wouldn’t rush back.
