Invited : 26th November 2019


Rock ’n’ roll-themed chain with a high-energy vibe serving burgers & American classics.

I got a wee ping in my inbox asking me if I would like to visit Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow, to try their Thanksgiving menu and I accepted and put it in my calendar.

This sounded very interesting, as I have not had a Thanksgiving meal for a few years now so it would be good to have one again.

Looking Around

I have had Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow, on my list to pop in and try so I was very excited to visit tonight. I have only ever been in the London Hard Rock Cafe, so I was ready to take a look around and enjoy the food.

On entering you go through the Hard Rock Shop and through the back to get to the restaurant, I spotted a few cool things in the shop but I was a good boy and didn’t get anything since its so close to Christmas.

Inside was very cool with lots of memorabilia on the walls, classic tunes playing and had a really funky but nice and relaxing atmosphere.

I was seated at the back, for me this was good as I got a good view of the whole place.

The Food

I was invited here to have Thanksgiving dinner, which if your not familiar with Thanksgiving dinner its basically like your traditional Christmas dinner.

I was given the menu to have a look at, and then asked if they can start preparing it….of course I said yeah! as I was a hungry boy.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Slow roasted turkey breast, roasted fresh vegetables, home-style classic stuffing, creamy sweet potato mash, cranberry sauce finished with a traditional turkey gravy £15.95 (Tonight Free)

This was a good sized portion, and it smelled amazing!!! after many photos and Instagram stories, I finally started.

I tried everything on its own first, to see how it tasted and how well it was cooked.

Let me start with the Brussels sprouts, I normally avoid these guys but I tried them tonight and I was VERY shocked. These had a really nice flavour to them, and nice and soft and guess what? I finished them all…nice ones guys!!!

Everything on this plate was really nice, full of flavour and worked well on its own and together,

  • Presentation : 4
  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : n/a tonight
  • Overall : 5

Pumpkin Pie £6.50 (Tonight Free)

As I said at the start of this review, I have had Thanksgiving dinner in the past but not for many years. I have had Pumpkin Pie before, so it would be nice to compare them as the one I had in the past was homemade.

This tasted just like I remembered, and I enjoyed it very much.

I have a very sweet tooth so its not a sweet I would order a lot if I saw it on a menu, but it was Thanksgiving and it was the perfect sweet for the night.

  • Presentation : 5
  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : n/a tonight
  • Overall : 5
