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.


If I could give this place 6 stars, I would. 

Steak & Lobster + a beer for £20 on thursdays.

Comfortably the best meal I have had in London this year.
