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.

Fantastic food and service! Universal studio prices but its a restaurant with burgers in the middle of town! Some impressive exhibits from famous rock stars and the like. I had somewhat of an issue with the music choices. I know its a massive chain catered to bob and sally but some more ROCK music would be desired; not pop-metal or Justin Timberlake. Ive heard more rock music in my local cafe so to be honest they would bear the title 'hard rock cafe' more favourably in that regard. The only rock songs i heard the whole meal was from the Doors, Black sabbath and Metallica. Lets have more of those! Still; lovely staff and i would probably recommend it to families as rocking teens such as myself who used to hang out in places like this are being subject to overpriced Disney-esque cocktail bars.

First visit and would definitely go back. Much prefer this one to the one in Edinburgh which is very dark and much smaller.

First time going to Hard Rock Cafe and it was great! The waiter we had, I think her name was Jill, was really lovely and had a good laugh with her!

Had a great time at Hard Rock Cafe, Glasgow. Was a Wednesday evening just after 5pm and a bit quieter than expected but could feel the place coming alive with the background music and more diners coming in before we left to attend concert at the Hydro. Our servers were friendly and efficient, special cocktail offers on as well so that definitely pleased the ladies. A good range on the food menu, mostly burgers ordered by our group, including veggie option and everyone enjoyed their servings. I ordered chicken fajitas, plenty to fill 4 wraps and they were delicious. Price was reasonable with the reduced cocktails. All in, the Hard Rock Cafe was a very pleasant experience, would definitely go again.

In all honesty, bitterly disappointed with this. Food was below par, drinks menu wasn't great.
Service was good, lovely staff and very welcoming however food is more important and this was not up to scratch.

Nachos were okay, not too bad.
Mac and cheese was so thick and heavy.
Burger was average, very very greasy and a very soggy bun (I have had a lot better burgers from Wetherspoons).

All in all the meal was it worth what we paid for it so was a disappointing choice on our part and highly doubt we will be back

The staff were great and really welcoming. We had a party of 7 and there were plenty of options for everyone. As a vegetarian I was glad to see there were some great options for me and the veggi burger was awesome! Staff friendly and attentive. Would definitely go back!

I have visited several Hard Rock cafes across Europe. But this one was the least enjoyable. We had a table for four on Monday 17th February, the staff did not appear as passionate as others. We were squashed onto a small table. The server seemed angry whenever we asked him for anything. I’m sure if we tried it again it would be different

Food excellent. Music virtually non existent. What's the point in calling it the "Hard Rock" Cafe if you can hardly hear the music of the videos? It is perfectly possible to turn the volume up and still be able to hear the conversation of your table guests. Turn up the volume Hard Rock!
