Description: The lively atmosphere and the classic decor aboard the riverboat casino is a great place to dine out in Glasgow, and is open from 5pm-3am.The rich eclectic menu is a fantastic fusion of home-cooked favourite and modern cuisine.After a hearty meal choose from two bars to enjoy an after dinner drink from an extensive list of champagnes, cocktails, wines and spirits.Signature dishes include our very own Aberdeen Angus Braised and Bramble Braised loin of succulent slow cooked beef, served on a potato rosti, with cauliflower puree, wild mushrooms flambeed in Drambuie, baby root vegetables and a bramble and red wine jus. Or for a more international twist we have our sumptuous Baked Fillet of Scottish Sea Bass with Sizzled Ginger, Spring Onion and Chilli Presented on a bed of hoi sin noodles with a zucchini tower balsamic roast vine tomatoes, and sizzled ginger, chilli and spring onions to finish.

We were staying in Glasgow over the weekend and booked the riverboat to have dinner in.
Being early January,the Restaurant was very quiet, however one young gentleman appeared to have responsibility for serving at the bar, taking the orders,and bringing out the food as well as customers paying their bill to him,so service was a bit so so,but no fault of the young waiter.
The Menu was none to exciting, however the food was hot and tasty,and for the £13 per person we paid, for a starter and main course,we were certainly not overcharged.
The surroundings were comfortable,and the added bonus of being able to "win/loose" a few £'s in the same building added to the night..
Overall not an unplesant evening,and would certainly go back at a later date..
Thank you for looking after us..

Menu has changed since last visit. Steak, steak and more steak. Poor choice of 4 starters. Salmon came with a baked potato and green beans, no sauce and was hardly worth the £12.95 charged. Fish, chips and mushy peas were fine. Ordered 2 side portions of onion rings which we returned as burnt and inedible. Poor choice of 3 sweets. Will not return until menu is changed.
