Restaurant description

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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Really enjoyed our meal! Service was excellent. Menu had something for everyone. Loved the place itself, the kids had a ball and loved the whole experience. So glad of the free refills of lemonade!

    Very friendly staff but restaurant was very busy - even at 5:30pm - and there weren't enough menus to go round! Food was good but there was simply far too much of it. Restaurant was busy and loud so no good for a romantic meal, but ideal for a celebration. It was fine but I wouldn't necessarily choose to go back.

    On the whole ok but ordered the nachos as a starter, it was huge,dare I say to big as a starter.i felt the server should have highlighted this as I couldn't really enjoy my main as too full.
