Hard Rock Café Glasgow features all the aspects that made the American restaurant group so famous. Located in the restored Athenaeum Theatre, in the heart of the historic Style Mile, the Buchanan street branch has a history of its own, and serves up modern stateside dishes.

The Hard Rock Café menu stays true to form, with American-style smokehouse specialities such as the hickory-smoked ribs topping the list, along with the local legendary burger, which is unique to each branch. Alcoholic twisted shakes and hot fudge brownies are favourites for pudding.

The walls are decked with musical mementos, which both celebrate history of the theatre, and evoke Hard Rock Café’s signature rock ‘n’ roll vibe.

Also on site is a shop full of merchandise, a late night bar, and an area dedicated to weekly live music. The latest addition to the ever popular restaurant group, the Glasgow Hard Rock Café is a 1-minute walk from Buchanan Street Subway Station, and 2 minutes from Glasgow Queen Street station.

    Got a table near the bar and was told there was no serving at our table. We had to order food and drinks from the bartender ourselves. Fair enough, but it was IMPOSSIBLE to get service! The bartenders saw we had a menu to order food and clearly avoided eye contact. It took us 15 minutes just to order the food. We wanted the Hurricane souvenir glasses but the bartender wasn't really sure how to implement that on our order. We had to tell him how it works... So, after a while our nacho plate starter arrived. We still hadn't gotten our drinks yet. The waitress didn't seem to notice so we had to ask her to check it out. She didn't come back to let us know, so we tried to ask the bartender ourselves - who was still ignoring us - and he said he forgot. It wasn't that crowded when we were there, and I don't think he was under training or anything, so he should have made the drinks when we placed our order. We went back to our table and then the entrees arrived. We were still working on our nachos... The bartender comes over with our drinks and apologizes (not sincere). Being so thirsty, we finished our drinks quickly. We went over to the bar to order new ones and the bartenders were still ignoring us. Then a manager comes over to the bar and sees this. He says to one of the bartenders "hey, serve him", pointing at my brother. The bartender looks at my brother and raises his shoulders. The manager, in a stronger voice this time, tells him again "you serve the customer right now!". We got our drinks and the bartender apologized again. When we had finished our food and the second round of drinks our table was full of dirthy dishes. The waiters and bartenders passed us several times but no one cleared our table. We would have liked to have some dessert but decided it was better to leave and go somewere else who had better service. Only reason for not giving 1 star is because of the manager who noticed the lazy bartender and beacuse the food was good, allthough badly coordinate

    Restaurant way too loud. Staff attentive, especially Duncan and Amy.
    Jumbo starter excellent. Burger was dry.
