I was pleasantly surprised with the food at Big Easy. Express lunch deal was very good value. Food was served up as speedy as promised, portions were large and it was filling. The normal menu had plenty to choose from and they also have kids menu.
Our table was by a corner and felt very different to the grandeur it had from outside. Service was attentive. Child friendly, except for the loud music. Great choice of drinks. Good for large group bookings. I will definitely be back again!
This place is buzzing with great food and service. Our table was a party of 5 adults and 3 kids under 5. The staff played with the kids and seemed to really enjoy working there. BBQ ribs were very good but a firm favourite with our group was their cornbread muffin; it was sweet, salty and moorish. The chunky chips were also crispy on the outside while fluffy on the inside. For the food quality, portion, and service, they have priced themselves well when compared to other similar restaurants. I will not hesitate to dine here again in the future.
Great athmosphere and great views.
Live music every night. Great choice of cocktails, and an ideal place to go for Lobster.
Not as good as the Chelsea or Covent Garden branch unfortunately. I know it's not their fault, but the atmosphere is dampened by all of the arrogant suits from Canary Wharf. The food was okay, the lobster was slightly cold and overcooked. The live music and cocktails were great though, shame about the type of people it attracts!
We came here for the bottomless brunch for a friends birthday. Two of us opted for the bottomless BBQ, there was a lot of food! All delicious. It comes out on a sharing plate, to save space on the table. Really enjoyed the chicken. The other members of the group went for the Lobster, in many different forms, and said it was tasty. We were never out of drink, and although our table wasn't ready until 25 minutes after our booking time, we were given a complimentary bottle of Prosecco to compensate - which went down well! You do end up drinking a lot so be prepared for it to be a boozy affair. Perfect venue for celebrations!
A bottomless brunch with lobster... what more can you ask for on a Saturday afternoon. The staff were really great and most definitely kept our glasses topped up, even at one point giving us frozen margaritas too. The atmosphere was vibrant, relaxed and upbeat, a really fabulous way to spend the weekend and not ridiculously expensive.
Basing my review solely on the bottomless brunch, which all things considered is actually a remarkable feast. You can choose between BBQ or Lobster with a choice of beer, wine, prosecco or mojito and you have two hours to fill your boots for £30 - so it's a pretty solid deal. However the food is decent at best, it's certainly going for the quantity over quality appeal. The space itself is nice but has a generic feel to it and the staff were friendly but went missing for long periods.
Having visited the Covent Garden and Kings Road outposts, this is easily my favourite branch of Big Easy. Perched above Canary Wharf in the new Crossrail place, the whole place feels open and breezy, even when the tables are packed typically close together.
I've been a few times for the bottomless brunch here, and it's one of the best for your buck around. For £30 you choose between lobster or bottomless BBQ - both are great - washed down by bottomless wine, prosecco, beer or my personal favourite, the frozen mojito. The lobster is delicious, though I found the butter on the side a bit too greasy and could've had a little more garlic in. The BBQ as well is great, with the ribs a definite highlight and the cornbread a nice addition.
The service is friendly but could be a bit more attentive. Each time I have visited I have found myself looking for staff on a few occasions, and can be slow to get drinks.
Still though, the location and value make this place a consistently strong choice for a bottomless brunch, and I thoroughly recommend.
Big Easy means the perfect combination of quality food and drinks and good service at a fair price. I prefer the Canary Wharf branch for its spacious interior and an amazing view.
Perfect for Sunday brunch, bigger gatherings or just an after work drink. Food is delicious (ribs = fabulous) and the Sunday happy hour is something not to be missed!
We had a fantastic experience at this themed restaurant celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday! Having left it until last minute, we walked in without a booking on a busy Sunday evening! The happy hour margaritas made a perfect start to the evening and definitely built up our appetites. For starters we shared the BBQ chicken wings and pickle chips which were entirely unique and tasted delicious. For mains, I ordered the lobster (which came with a glass of prosecco!) – and although I mainly chose this to get the big white bib to wear, it truly tasted amazing! The venue itself was very impressive and decorated so much to detail it made us feel we were sitting in a restaurant in the deep south of the USA. Overall, it is quite reasonably priced for what you get, however I would say to visit for a special occasion. We will definitely be returning soon!
This place is such a welcome addition to the wharf. Plenty of space and plenty of atmosphere. First off the old fashions are amazing. Food wise it was the unlimited hog roast or wings for £20 day. I went for the hog roast which was delicious. Juicy, smoky pork with side of fresh corn bread, crispy fries, smoky beans, coleslaw and a brioche bun. The bun was irrelevant for me here, everything else was excellent and I managed some extra pork and corn bread! My friend had unlimited wings, which was litterally just bowls of either hot or BBQ wings. They were diddy and the skin soggy. She felt very hard done by next to me. Not sure how both meals equated to the same price! The couple next to us had a giant lobster and steak to share and obviously thoroughly enjoyed it.
There was a great live band on and if I wasn't so stuffed would have happily moved to the bar area to properly enjoy the performance. Worth some research on the meal choice but all in all highly recommended, especially in this neck of the woods.
Nice views from the balcony, you can visit here just for drinks. or food. With live music and a buzzing atmosphere, not to be missed.
