It is no secret that The Star in Frisco houses some of the best and most unique restaurants in North Dallas. But possibly the most unique of them all, The Glen Restaurant & Bar, delightfully combines fantasy and elegance to provide a cutting-edge, full-sensory dining experience.

From the menu to the environment, this establishment is one-of-a-kind, inspired by the striking painting “The Monarch of the Glen”, originally commissioned in 1851 for the Palace of Westminster. And if its atmosphere, complete with lush faux greenery and florals, dimmed lighting, live aerial performing artists and a resident DJ does not impress, its menu surely will.

The menu, served Monday through Saturday between 5pm to close, incorporates gourmet American cuisine and seafood, as well as an elevated drink menu of hand-pressed craft cocktails, an impressive selection of wine and scotch, and more.

If you are into the classics, I recommend complimenting any main dish with the delicious truffle fries. The addition of truffle oil takes classic french fries to the next level, topped with parmesan cheese for sharpness and parsley for a fresh finish. These fries are a perfect mix of salty and savory, pairing delightfully with The Glen’s house-made peach ketchup.

For a luxurious twist on a childhood favorite, try the Next Level Corndogs. These corndogs, made of All American angus franks, are perfectly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Its savoryness is also cut with the sweetness of their house-made peach ketchup, and topped with garlic aioli and caviar for a fusion of rich flavor. And this dish is not just pleasing to the taste ⎯ delicately placed gold flakes give it a stunning presentation unlike any other.

Whether you’re celebrating or not, The Glen’s triple-layer chocolate celebration cake will surely give you a reason to. The combination of classic chocolate cake and fluffy mocha frosting is delightfully sweet and perfect for lovers of chocolate and coffee. This cake comes adorned with fresh flowers for a pop of color and extravagant sparklers to celebrate in style. 

So whether you are looking for a unique, diverse flavor experience, glamorous photo-ops, or dine-in entertainment, look no further than The Glen Restaurant & Bar at The Star in Frisco, located at 6655 Winning Dr Suite 600.
