Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow is located in the heart of Glasgow’s historic Style Mile in the restored, renaissance-inspired Athenaeum Theatre.

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.

had booked a table but had to wait 10 minutes while it was being cleaned which was fine. Server was lovely, very friendly but we then waited about an hour for our food due to a delay in the kitchen. The restaurant was not busy so it was a bit frustratng to be waiting for so long. Food was ok, nothing outstanding but just ok. I wouldn't go back.

Menu is too limited now, and the prices in HRC just don’t reflect the unexceptional and quite basic dishes being served. It’s always been a tad expensive but there feels like a delusion of grandeur in what HRC is offering.

I get we are in changed times but the staff were quite over the top with the Covid Instructions constantly. I also simply requested a gluten free bun with my burger due to an allergy and the song and dance that was made of this was thoroughly embarrassing. This appeared to involve the waitress getting the manager over to go through “procedures and protocols” I was utterly mortified, this is the reason people go without asking allergy questions much of the time. Those at my table were mortified for me.
The Angus burger was also dry and quite disappointingly tasteless although the chips were very good.
I won’t be in a rush to return I have to say. Not great value for money in my eyes

The Virgin Experience voucher, was in my viewan absolute con, standard burger menu, chocolate brownie or a chocolate brownie poor dessert choice, well no choice really, solid brioche roll, burger standard, menu was shocking for literally no choice, not worth £50, also brownie is on a plate, whereas if paid off main menu it comes a larger portion in a large dessert goblet, absolute robbery!

I have been for meals many a time. After my last visit I’m afraid I won’t be back. The restaurant was spotless and the staff there usual friendly selfs however, there was an eerie effect due to the music not playing. The food was not up to its usual standards either. I had ordered the salmon with mash and it arrived with chips!! I was with another two people and they found a difference in the food as well. My bill came to £70 and we didn’t have alcohol. very sad day indeed.

The new Covid-19 measures were very very good. It seems like they take it quite seriously, which is really nice to see, but also, it did not make me feel anxious or worried - I felt safe. It was also the first time I saw in any restaurant that staff disinfected the card machine before we paid. So, really, well done! Other than that, Hard Rock is always good and always a pleasure to go to, although somewhat on a pricey side.

I am a fan o HRC and been to many over the world. HRC Glasgow seems to be a hit and a miss regards food. Twisted mac’n’cheese was very congealed and dry compared to what I have experienced. No music st the Hard Rock Cafe is disappointing.

Due to covid 19 (despite booking in advance) there was a 20 minute wait 'outside' for our table,
Staff however were extremely friendly and upbeat.
When entering, someone was already at our table but we were quickly given another table. Service was a little slow, but it was busy. The menu was very reduced. It was 50% off (but only on a certain small menu)
We got some soft drinks and our starters came, (without cutlery) so there was a little wait for cutlery.
Main courses arrived in decent time too, however after requesting 'no blue cheese' on my salad.. It was full of it.. It was hard to catch a waiters attention so I picked my way through my steak salad.. The steak was bland and the cheese really ruined it. 2 of my friends enjoyed there meal whilst my other friend didn't touch her burger, it was just tasteless
The food is always pretty average but we enjoy coming here as its open late and in city centre.. Its a good place to just grab a burger, but it is severly over priced.. Even with the deduction we were £80 for average food and soft drinks, thankfully the staff are always cheery

Not having any music, and therfore no atmosphere in comparison really ruined the whole Hard Rock experience which I know existed previously. COVID has so much to answer for - such a shame what it is doing to these fabulous places!!
