Friendly service, not too long a wait, great mussel dishes; they do a good menu but the half kilo of mussels is great value and they have a good selection of sauces that they serve them in.

We wandered into the Mussel Inn after our first choice for dinner didn't pan out. We saw the unassuming space from the street and quickly checked Trip Advisor reviews, which were quite positive. Even without reservations on a busy evening, we were promptly seated and...More

Terrific menu and great service. Ambience, menu and reasonable prices all recommend it, too. Lots of buzz, but easy to have conversation even with noise in the background.

We normally use the Edinburgh restaurant, so since we were in the area, went here instead. Pleasant surprise was the increased spacing between tables over what we are used to. Not a surprise was the quality of the Seafood Chowder & Pot of Mussels (Shallots)...More

We went here on our last night in Glasgow. Ordered scallops with roe, roasted oysters with cheese and bacon, and of course, mussels. The scallops were gritty, I determined that the black "shell" we were getting was where the roe connected to the actual scallop...More

I like the Red papper sauce mussel which I never try and hardly see that in the UK. It was surprisingly good. Also good service, and nice restaurant space, recommend this if you like seafood

This is a casual restaurant with a focus on sustainable local seafood. We had seafood chowder, mussels, chilled oysters and salads. All of it was delicious, the staff was efficient and pleasant and the price seemed reasonable for fresh local seafood. I definitely recommend Mussel...More

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).
