Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visiting and auld haunt and family favourite and never to be disappointed, under the watchful eye of the owner Tommy his staff delivered a fantastic evening for my Mums 94th birthday dinner, service was amazing and the food was absolutely spot on. Four out of five mains were fillet steak and all cooked to perfection. Well worth a visit .

I was there for Mothers Day Dinner. Advised by staff member to go at 4pm as it was busy at 5. We ended up standing at bar for over an hour waiting on a table. They were still taking orders for take aways even though people were standing at bar like sardines. Tables were waiting on food and worse service ever.Food luvly when it arrived, but dont expect to be still in restaurant at 7pm when ive booked a table at 4.

Went with my family today for late lunch for Mothers Day. Food exceptional as always even though it was busier than I've ever seen it. Shout out to the staff who despite being run off their feet were kind, smiling and helpful. They are a credit to the place. Can't wait to return.

We booked a table for 6pm and was told it could be a 45min wait. I understand restaurants are bust on a Sat night but that is why we booked a week in advance . We ended up cancelling so this is not a review on the food purely the unorganised Kaos

Hi Alexnwr, Thank you for reviewing the Glencairn Lounge. I am sorry that you were disappointed, at times without a separate area for guests arriving it can appear extremely busy. Sometimes we do have an overlap which we do try and resolve. Kind Regards Carolyn

A couple of my pals took me up on the suggestion that this place is good. Afterwards they were both raving about the Cajun (chicken) enchilada, and agreed that these are the best enchiladas they've ever had.

As i say, book ahead. Food wise, the enchiladas are the best in the area, but the daily specials mean daily special. They weren't on yesterday, probably won't be on tomorrow so if you want one, order it. Chef will believe you if you order rare steak or duck (both on the specials), and can also do things like cooking scallops properly. The bar staff will actually mix cocktails properly. I ordered a Virgin Mary and got the full service with the cocktail shaker, not just a few drops of Tabasco in a glass then add a bottle of tomato juice. The only reason this is a 5* review is that I can't do a 6* one.

Love this place, the food is plentiful and reasonably priced, not to mention delicious. I brought my grandchildren here and believe it or not it was cheaper than McDonalds and the burgers they had looked so much more appealing. I would highly recommend and my top tip is to book in advance because it is always busy.

We were really looking forward to eating here as was highly recommended. At first I though my son just ordered the wrong dish, but each of our meals was horrible . I did mention to the girl my son couldn’t even eat his but she was like oh that’s ok . He got the Manhattan sizzler which was basically soup with a few pieces of steak ,that were over cooked onions and mushrooms We did get dessert and it was ok but we would never return

Hi andreamN6864EU. The Glencairn strives for Customer satisfaction, we are always helpful and friendly. In the case of your Son not enjoying his meal, we would have happily exchanged it for something else! The Manhattan Sizzler is a full 8oz Sirloin Steak. Pictures of half eaten food and claiming its what you received is a hard one to digest. Kind Regards Carolyn .
