Found in a Southside space formerly occupied by a carpet shop and a gospel church room, The McMillan Southside Bar & Chop House injects its own little piece of history into Pollockshaws Road. 

After the wild success of their West End branch, the McMillan family have stretched their wings into Glasgow's up and coming Southside, opening a bar and chop house that serves simple but perfectly executed dishes to the good people of Glasgow. The space is vast, filled with handmade furniture and extending into outdoor and private areas, with booths available to hire. 

On the menu is a hearty and locally sourced selection of ingredients, artfully prepared by experienced chefs into high quality meat and seafood dishes: expect scallops, lobster, burgers and steaks, as well as lighter lunchtime treats. Alongside the chow on offer, punters can look forward to a broad selection of beverages, including cocktails, seven beers on draught and Scottish craft beers served by the bottle. If that weren't enough to whet your whistle, Glasgow's own Alexandra Wines have selected a number of wines to pair perfectly with the dishes on offer.

The food is really mediocre, and has gone downhill a lot :( Steaks were chewy and service was really bad- in an almost empty restaurant we were told to sit at the bar since our table wasn't ready EVEN THOUGH the table they sat us at about twenty minutes later was visibly ready?

Really handy Southside location and friendly staff BUT the food is just ok. Everything is perfectly pleasant, but nothing stands out as particularly delicious or worth remarking on. With so many amazing places to eat nearby, it's not clear why you'd visit here.

A charming venue in a vibrant part of town. We worked our way through a selection of their craft beers - they have an impressive selection. The steak was good too. No complaints.

Saturday 3pm empty tables with people just leaving , left to stand with no acknowledgement by staff despite being seen by several waitresses only to be told fully booked. Poor show for new restaurant !
