I've been to the Covent Garden and Chelsea branches, I would recommend the Chelsea restaurant over the Covent Garden one. Reading the reviews below, it looks like it's better and more cost effective to go for lunch than dinner here - so maybe I will give it one more chance and try lunch before I completely write it off...
Four of us went to the Covent Garden Big Easy for a birthday dinner, booked the table opposite the stage to enjoy the band, however that never happened. It took the band so long to set up and warm up we were leaving, at almost 9pm, before they'd even started playing - really disappointed. The band were also so close to the diners that the staff were almost tripping and were having to maneuver round the cables and equipment making everyone really nervous.
The bill was pretty extortionate given the quality of the food and service. Everyone was packed in really tightly and it felt very uncomfortable and rushed, but I guess that's what you get Saturday night in central London. Still despite all this we had a nice evening, though that was probably more the good company than the location.
Slow service and mediocre food. Like being served your last meal on a tin tray. Could barely have a conversation with my friends due to the loud music too! Doubt I would return
The Big Easy succeeds at both quality AND quantity, which is pretty rare for a restaurant. We at a super meaty meal (barbecue-wise, they have some serious equipment in the kitchen!), but there's lots of lobster dishes too. Huge choice of drinks (the bar is huge) - I especially liked the Old Fashioned cocktails on tap - they still tasted great! Loud and fun place, with a cool Americana interior. Comfort food.

An industrial revamp of the old electricity station, fused with retro Americana makes for a fantastic interior, and the bar is of mind-boggling proportions, seemingly serving every liquor ever put into production! There is live music too, which I'm sure would be fabulous if kept in line with the blues spirit emanating from the enforced ambience...I'm yet to experience this though, so cannot comment properly. I'm afraid though, this is where the good stuff ends because the prices just don't tally with what's on offer, the service was slow and not all that enthusiastic, and the food was distinctly average.

Disappointed in service and food, after a long hour and 45min wait. Kindly offered a free round of drinks, to be again disappointed when our mains finally arrived. Very average lobster and below par cold steak. Won't be going back.
