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.

    The food was terrible ..burger meat was dry and charcoal in texture. The hot fudge pudding ice cream was vanilla scoops not proper ice cream as the picture shows . Awful service started the meal at 545 left at nearly 8pm due to delays in food. We will never eat here again

    Service was great. An issue with one starter but was more than rectified when the main came. NY Strip was the most tenderest steak that husband ever had…and we’ve had a lot of steak elsewhere. Steak Salad was amazing. Don’t know how you seasoned the salad but the way the flavours complemented each other was something else. Cocktails were fab. Really good value compared to other places we’ve eaten, where the service was abysmal and food nothing to shout about : So we’ll be back!

    First time in Hard Rock for dinner. As soon as we walked up the customer service was excellent from the guys on the door, to being seated and our server Lane was brilliant. A very happy welcome from everyone. both my partner and I got burgers and they were outstanding. Cocktails were brilliant too. Overall an amazing experience and will 100% come back for dinner again.

    The food we had was very tasty, and kids portions were very generous. Also, nice touch to hand out kids activity packs to keep them busy. However there was little atmosphere in the restaurant and most of the staff looked a little worse for wear. One of our dishes was forgotten about and had to be cooked from scratch and delivered to table when most other had already finished their meal. Not a terrible experience but not great either.

    Server was great (refill jill) - very attentive and enthusiastic. Drinks were good and plenty refills. The main courses were all delicious and polished off quickly. Really enjoyed the twisted Mac n cheese. The fudge brownie sundae looked amazing but the brownie part wasn’t good … it was a wee bit tasteless and brick hard. Only thing that could have been better ! Ice cream was good. We’d still return though

    We arrived and sat at our table we weren’t told that there was no hot dogs to which the kids were all gutted about. Once picking other food options we waited an hour for it to come. My partner ordered chicken fajitas which had no salsa sauce so was extremely dry he couldn’t really eat it. I had bbq ribs which was good size portion but also a bit dry with no extra sauce for them and really dry homemade coleslaw. While we all got served food my son was waiting for about 7mins while we were all half way through our meals. It was just a kids max cheese so wasn’t sure why I wasn’t ready with everything else. We waited another 20 mins just for kids ice creams to come. Doubt we will be back. Music was so loud. Cocktails were nice tho

    Service was not only slow, but completely devoid of information. On leaving and trying to pay our bill, we had to wait for our server which meant hanging around in the thoroughfare. The food was greasy and cold.

    Had a table of 7, all 7 of us got a burger for our main and everyone’s burger was dry. By far the worst burger we have ever had at a restaurant. Was charged £30 for service aswell which we weren’t keen on paying after the way the food was. Will definitely not be back

    Waited for a table that lay empty for 30 mins .. Waiter. Nick. Was quick to serve and drinks, although they had no coke and the Fanta was off, Waited 45 minutes for Luke warm food .. tasteless, and certainly not fresh. Nick was doing his best under bad circumstances... No bad review nick.. He did take 2 of the worst meals off the bill but still not ok at£73 for sub standard microwaved food .. I have been to many HRC and loved them, Glasgow need to get a training course .. food was awful...
