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).

A Friday night visit for our first time here. Busy bustling cafe atmosphere. Friendly staff. The smells from the open kitchen waft throughout the diner, wetting your appetite for what's to come.

Went for evening meal for our anniversary. I had the surf n turf and my OH had the seafood plater. The food was cooked perfectly and didn't have to wait long for the service even though we had turned up early for our booking. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful when asked about the food. The restaurant is very... More

Again visited this seafood restaurant when we visited Glasgow. Nothing has changed. Staff are brilliant, food is excellent, choice is large. Best to book before you visit.

First visit to the Mussell Inn, and I have to say I was a bit disappointed. The staff were really friendly and attentive, however, I found the Mussels in Moroccan sauce lacking in flavour and a bit bland. Portion size was good and there was fresh bread served to soak up the juice. I ordered creme brûlée for dessert and... More

Have always wanted to try Mussel Inn but took me a long time to get round it, and I wasn't disappointed. Had lovely seafood chowder, a kilo pot of mussels, chips and sticky toffee pudding. All very good, fresh and surprisingly light. Nice dining area without trying too hard and staff very friendly, efficient and professional. Would recommend.

Had a fantastic meal at the Mussel Inn - we did go mid week and the restaurant was not full but the quality of the food and the serving staff was fantastic. I am sure this high standard is maintained all the time. Can't recommend highly enough.

I enjoyed dinner at this restaurant. It was fairly quiet on the evening that I visited in early February, and the service was good and the staff friendly and very pleasant. The food was of a good standard, and the prices moderate. The price of wine by the glass was on the expensive side for the quality of wine on... More
