We tried the Mussel Inn because my niece and her family like it and said I should try it when I was in Glasgow, well as it was my Husbands birthday yesterday and where staying in Glasgow for 2 nights so on our second evening which was his birthday off we went to give it a try and where not disappointed food was excellent as was the service by all the staff but must give our waitress Katie a special mention for her very good service, we will definitely be back and I would recommend that you try it ( unlike my other review for Hard Rock which we went to the night before )

“Fresh, tastey food at an affordable price!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Friendly and attentive service. Spotlessly clean with nice decor and spacious seating. The food is delicious with generous portions. There's no place in glasgow that can match the mussels with simple garlic butter or the shellfish pasta. Looking forward to going back again and again!

“Lovely seafood”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

My partner and I ate here on Saturday night. Restaurant was fairly busy but the service was good and the waiting staff friendly and attentive. The menu is not extensive but there was enough for us to choose from. I started with the half kilo of mussels in white wine and garlic, lovely big tasty mussels and my partner had the chowder , he also said this was very good, we were also given a basket of bread on the table. For main course I had the seafood fettuccine with a shellfish bisque, full of lovely seafood and the sauce was delicious, the portion was also huge, my partner had the cod wrapped in pancetta special, he did feel that for £15 the portion could have been a bit bigger but was tasty all the same. We would definitely come again.
