We went for the pre-theatre menu. Smoked salmon spring rolls with sweet chilli dip and the fish chowder to start. The spring rolls were the highlight of the whole dining experience; really crisp and flavorsome. The chowder was pretty sparse on the fish front and drastically under seasoned, but after lashings of additional pepper and salt it became palatable. Free... More

We came to this restaurant twice during our two days visit in Glasgow. All I can say is this is the best seafood place if you love shellfish. For a half kilo mussels you only pay £5.60 and got complimentary bread. Staff are friendly and speedy service, which was exactly we wanted. There is another mussel inn in Edinburgh but... More

We dragged ourselves to the Mussel Inn on a rain soaked, December evening, after spending the afternoon at the Glasgow Science Centre. We got down at Glasgow Central station, pondering where to go to get our dinner, when it was absolutely pouring down. My daughter wanted to have fish and chips and the Mussel Inn, seemed to be the obvious... More

Visit here regularly, its one of my favourite restaurants in Glasgow. Top class food and wine, and reasonably priced. We usually order a selection of starters and mussels to share; Grilled Oysters superb, Prawns, haggis bon bons, Queenies, amazing as always. Friendly and helpful staff who offer great service. Would highly recommend!

The chowder was of course the only choice to be made for our starters, it was served simply with bread and butter and could have been had as a main course. To be truthful it was so tasty that I think I could have eaten it as starter, main and dessert! I didn't of course but rather had the shellfish... More

Pros: Excellent seafood (mussels, of course), friendly service, attractive interior. Cons: Nothing worth noting. Visited first night in Glasgow as it was a short walk from our hotel. Although we had no reservations we were promptly seated and offered menus. I would note we were apparently “ahead of the crowd” as the restaurant soon filled. We ordered wine and the... More

I have visited this restaurant before, and this visit didn't disappoint. I had the grilled pawns followed by the Shellfish Pasta, the pasta was excellent with plenty of shellfish and a very tasty sauce. The waitresses were good but one was not very customer friendly, I would say needs a little more traing, otherwise very good

Visited for dinner and met by very welcoming staff. I had the fish chowder for starters and we both had mussels for main which were very nice. The decor of the restaurant is very nice with artwork on the walls upstairs, wish I had gone up to have a look. My wife had sticky date pudding for afters which she... More

Visited for a swift lunch and wasn't disappointed. Staff were friendly and the mussels just excellent. If you are looking for a quality light bite or something more substantial, you couldn't do much better in Glasgow.
