The Mussel Inn is one of Glasgow’s première restaurants. Despite the name, our restaurant offers a much wider variety of food than just Scottish West Coast mussels served with our unique and delicious range of sauces. Our seafood dishes also include Creamy Seafood Chowder, Grilled King Scallops and Queen Scallops, Scottish oysters, and our amazing seafood platter (Mini Seafood Platter also available).

Went on the spur of the moment and was more than pleasantly surprised. The waiting staff were very welcoming and attentive. It is a nice big airy room and both the natural and blue cheese mussels were amazing. Big, fresh, juicy and all opened. We had one portion of fries between us and we were more than full. We will...

This was my first time in the Mussel inn Glasgow and I must say I was very impressed. I would not hesitate to return there with friends, family or business meals. The food although largely sa food, does have other options. Cannot fault the place, thank you!

This is a great restaurant which is clear about what it is and what it isn't. The name indicates the clear focus on mussels and there is a strong skew towards shellfish. They work closely with farmers and this means they get great quality produce. The menu is quite simple, uses high quality ingredients and is well executed. It is... More

Ate here our last night in Scotland visiting our veterinarian student in Glasgow. Recommended by our daughter who had been here several times. Very nice restaurant, run very well, great service and great seafood. They are known for their steamed mussel pots which you can get with different seasonings. Order a small size for an appetizer or a bigger pot... More

Had a late lunch here this afternoon. Staff were friendly, food was fresh, excellent portion size, super tasty and well presented. As seafood lovers I would highly recommend. The wine was also good quality and reasonably priced. I will be booking again in the very near future.

Very nice restaurant with wide variety of mussels and sea food. You can chose half or full kilo of mussels in different sauces. This is place really worth going. Price is very reasonable for the quality of food served

This is the second visit I have made here and the first alone. The simple room with a small balcony is lively and unpretentious. It is a very popular venue served by attentive staff who seem interested in the food they serve and in their clientele. It is most certainly a place to visit for a worthwhile lunch or supper.
