David C!!!. Let Down? The Glencairn Lounge is a fabulous place to eat, and have never tried to be anything other than helpful and friendly towards our customers. The Restrooms might not be fancy but they are certainly clean, There is no "behind the scenes"...More

I’ve been visiting here since I was a wee girl and the food is always superb, and the prices. I would recommend going on an empty stomach as the portion sizes are massive. It’s what they’re famous for....that and the enchiladas and steak pie.
