The food and service were excellent, the seafood scallops were outstanding and nice portion sizes, not huge but enough to fill you you up pleasantly! Great Risotto and Salad too!

Recently visited here after being told about it by a few people. What a result ! The restaurant is a decent size, very clean and all the staff are exceptionally friendly. There's a good selection of seafood dishes but also some meat alternatives for the carnivores. I had a starter of crab salad which was excellent and had just a... More

The tiger prawn appetizer was very tasty and fresh cooked with chilis and garlic butter it was delicious. My wife had the fish stew and was pleasantly surprised with the quality. I had the half kilo of mussels cooked in shallots & cream. We both chose the side salad instead of fries which was very fresh and clean. Even the... More

Have been meaning to go here for ages, and finally did and absolutely loved it. Loved all the options for mussels, and the specials. The fish chowder is superb. Slightly wish there were more fish (pink or white fish) options as felt there were more seafood dishes than fish dishes available. Nevertheless, enjoyed every course. The quality, taste, presentation was... More

Had a pre theatre menu with a friend one Saturday afternoon. I'd never been before and I'm not the biggest fan of mussels so was a bit apprehensive. I should not have worried. There was an excellent range of food and I had a spiced white fish strew which my friend had 1kg of mussels. We both had house wine... More

We visited The Mussel Inn last weekend with family and found this restaurant to be nicely decorated and very welcoming. The food was cooked well and presented beautifully. We were served very quickly by very polite and helpful staff. We will definitely return here for seafood again.

We went early Saturday evening. The service was good and fast. All the staff were very polite. The food was delicious and didn't take long to come out. All clean and tidy. We'd happily go again and recommend it to others.

This is definitely not a place to miss when I'm in Glasgow and craving for mussels! I look forward to the cheap lunch deals where you get a whole bowl of mussels, with bread and a drink of your choice. The waitress were very attentive to my needs whilst there and were very good to ask if I could take... More

Love this restaurant - always good service and the food is so scrumptious! My boyfriend and I are quite the pair of foodies, and cannot recommend this venue enough to family and friends! Great menu and good atmosphere - couples, work meal, family dining, etc. A great spot in the city centre! 5*

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).
