One of our colleagues is a casino member and recommended this place. It was very good indeed. We were seated quickly and the staff arranged the tables so we could sit together. Good selection on the menu. Quick efficient service. The food was excellent. I will definitely visit again.

I came here for a few drinks just to relax and have a flutter... Enjoyed a few cocktails, but my favourite drink had to be peach ciroc with the fentimans pink lemonade, wasn't feeling anymore cocktails so this was recommended, Kinda pricy but you get what you pay for, it was yummy!

Went to the restaurant for steak. We were told that most of the food on the menu was unavailable after being seated and brought drinks. Very disappointed.

My boyfriend and I normally visit the Alea casino at the Quay, but on New Year's Eve we decided to go to Riverboat as we heard they have good food and entertainment. The table games had not opened even although it was after 6pm so we went upstairs for dinner. There was only one couple there which we thought was... More

Not the usual place that I would choose to go for a meal but was looking for something different. Was slightly disappointed with the menu in restaurant but that's my personal opinion. Decided on steak and so glad I did, it was cooked to perfection. They obviously use good quality meat as it was so tender and delicious, I will... More

Went here for a Drifters tribute night back in March and have to say I wasn't disappointed. The staff at the Riverboat were exceptional in making my party welcome. They went out of their way to accommodate every customer and we're a credit to Grosvenor Casinos high standards. The food was exceptionally good, the service prompt and efficient and always... More

We used a tastecard which was 2 for 1. But they have a set menu which is only £10 for 2 courses which is great value anyway. Steak was cooked very well. Would visit again.

The food was actually decent but need more evening staff. The staff moved us from table to table as no staff in this section or that section. It has the potential to be very good. I appreciate it was late but then this is a casino.

The lively atmosphere and the classic decor aboard the riverboat casino is a great place to dine out in Glasgow, and is open from 5pm-3am.The rich eclectic menu is a fantastic fusion of home-cooked favourite and modern cuisine.After a hearty meal choose from two bars to enjoy an after dinner drink from an extensive list of champagnes, cocktails, wines and spirits.Signature dishes include our very own Aberdeen Angus Braised and Bramble Braised loin of succulent slow cooked beef, served on a potato rosti, with cauliflower puree, wild mushrooms flambeed in Drambuie, baby root vegetables and a bramble and red wine jus. Or for a more international twist we have our sumptuous Baked Fillet of Scottish Sea Bass with Sizzled Ginger, Spring Onion and Chilli Presented on a bed of hoi sin noodles with a zucchini tower balsamic roast vine tomatoes, and sizzled ginger, chilli and spring onions to finish.
