Suggestions for Glasgow and Stirling

We will be in Glasgow for three days staying at the Alexander Thomson on Argyll Street. I am looking for suggestions for restaurants near our hotel or easy to get to without a car and near the Riverside Museum. We will also be in Stirling for a day (without a car) so would love suggestions for eating places near the train station. My first choice of cuisine for these places would be Scottish food or gastropubs, but I am open to all suggestions. I'm not really looking for fancy places, since we are with two teenagers, but price is secondary to delicious food. Thanks always.
