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).
$9 - $26

Very modern and very delicious. A wide variety of fish dishes, but really it's all about the mussels! Everything is served piping hot, as it should be.

Great place for fresh Italian style seafood. We had the Hot Seafood Platter. Really good dish with King and queen scallops, tiger prawns and mussels, poached in tasty seafood sauce topped with grilled sea bass fillet and crème fraiche. The white wine also good. Recommended.

I like that other people have answered this question, just to say "i don't know". How brilliantly pointless. To answer your question, I also have no idea.

They had plenty of options that were gluten free. Many seafood options with veggies & potatoes and buckets of mussels.
