We visited towards the end of lunch service, but were not rushed at all. The staff were brilliant and the food was amazing. The mussels in bacon and blue cheese were really tasty as was the chowder. Great value and really clean too.

Went here a few days ago. Although the food was excellent, the portions were ridiculously small. Hence I would recommend that you either increase the portion sizes or reduce the prices.

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).
