A word from Big Easy- Kings Road
Founded over 20 years ago, the legendary Big Easy Barbecue and Crabshack combines the finest American cuisine made using quality ingredients with an impressive wine list, frozen margaritas and toe-tapping live music every night. Famous for its prime Maine lobsters, Big Easy offers up to 6 pounds of the prized crustaceans alongside a lobster cocktail, roll and bake, all available at incredible prices. They have sent their experts to trawl the Atlantic coastline for the finest, tastiest seafood and freshly delivered them straight to the heart of Chelsea everyday, allowing guests to tuck into fire roasted jumbo shrimp, Atlantic crab and New England clam chowder. Also expect 21 day aged Longhorn steaks, known for its lean, flavoursome and well-marbled beef, alongside fajitas, voodoo chicken wings and home smoked extra meaty "fall off the bone" ribs slathered in a special barbecue sauce.
With a buzzy atmosphere, huge portions and terrific cocktails, it's impossible not to have fun.

    Dined on 9/10/2014
    A group of 4 of us found it hard to talk because the music was so loud. We were near a speaker but I think the atmosphere is quite noisy. Good food and fun meal with the half lobster and steak. I'd go back... but request not to be near a speaker. Live music started at about 9pm... but we were leaving at that time.

    Really enjoyed this place, the food is great, and decent size portions. Hate going to a BBQ joint and leaving hungry. This is just right. Will definitely go again. Only downside is we were left waiting for a while after we were seated before someone took our order.

    There are definitely other places in London where to eat a good Lobster for the same price.The food was average, the lobster way too small. The burgers really nothing special. A positive note for the service but it's not enough.

    After having a few very good meals in their Covent Garden restaurant, I thought the Kings Road would provide samiliar qualities of foods and services. On top of that, I couldn't get a table from the Covent Garden restaurant. The waitress at Kings Road was not really know her job and the foods. The Long Horn steak I had was over-cooked and my friend's Long Horn steak has loads nonedible chewy fats. The atmosphere was just like any reasonable restaurant, but nothing like the Covent Garden Big Easy. Total disappointment!!!

    I love this restaurant! We went at a quiet time on this occasion (3pm Sunday) but it still had a great atmosphere. Huge portions. My only criticism is that they've changed their onion rings! Used to be huge but now they're still battered instead of breaded but much smaller now and not as luscious.

    The service is second to none at Big Easy Kings Road. The food was out lovely.. The only down side was space, the restaurant is very cramped. We had a platter to share which literally covered the table, which therefore made it very uncomfortable to eat as there was no space on the table. Highly recommend this place.. Ribs are out of this world!!! Will 100% be returning with loose fitting bottoms!!

    Great atmosphere but average food i think, i was expecting something on a par with Bodeans or Burger and Lobster, but i felt the food was not as high quality, seemed a little rushed and generally reliant on the atmosphere (which is great to be fair) but not the food. To me, as a restaurant, the food should be number one priority and the rest should come after. Great staff and general ambiance though

    Food was quite dry, very average, the ribs were not juicy at all, I got the feeling they had been heated up. But the service and atmosphere was great, it's worth visiting for that especially if your having a drink and there's a group of you! But food wise there are 100000s of better restaurants in London

    This was only the second time we have been to the Big Easy and we specially came half way across London by bus. We really enjoyed the first time and were not disappointed in least by our second visit and would recommend it to foodies and fun lovers, but it's always noisy so don't expect a quiet conversational evening!

    We ate at The Big Easy on Saturday. As expected the venue was busy which always makes for a good atmosphere! Tables were close so you may struggle to manoeuver if you are a larger person but worth the effort as a good cosy, fun environment. Downstairs is best as that is where the live music.

    Went to Big Easy with family. Sat upstairs which i'm not a fan of as it's quite cramped. We ordered wings and jumbo shrimps to start which were delicious. I had the 1.5lb lobster for main and it was really good. Everyone else had ribs which were thoroughly enjoyed. Chocolate fudge cake to finish completed a good meal altogether.

    Food here is fresh and that's a very big part of eating good seafood. So needless to say, the lobster we had was amazing. The baby back ribs we had were also very tasty, it wasn't as tender I would have preferred, but still good! A major surprise during my meal were the jumbo prawn served with their voodoo sauce. That was amazing. Super fresh and crunchy prawns, coated with light and crispy batter that went very well with the blue cheese dip and voodoo sauce. Good stuff!

    Big Easy Kings Road is the better our of the two Big Easy's in London. Food was fantastic the service was good the only bad point is that the tables are not big enough for the size of plates you are given. We were a table of 4 and it was a tight squeeze to fit the 4 plates on the table, the wine we had to put on the floor. The food is good value for money and the portion sizes are very good.

    We celebrated our son's 18th Friday night here. We had gone on recommendation for Covent Garden but couldn't get a booking there so Kings Road was a good second option. You have to take it as you find it, busy busy place, arrived a little early so went to the bar..very cosy but got to see what goes on at the bar with cocktails being made up and the food prep from the kitchen which if you are a first timer here really helps with seeing what you will get from menu choices, go hungry! We were seated down stairs and was entertained by the singer and guitar player through the evening. Service good and food very good. Great night.

    The place has outstanding service and the food is really excellent, as are their cocktails. It is however insane that one cannot navigate their way through the tables to use the services or just pop out for some fresh air. The seating arrangements "downstairs" can be daunting for the normal patrons, I hate to think someone who is remotely claustrophobic would feel though. I think the concept of squeezing as many seats as possible in the tiniest of spaces is indicative of the type of management.... especially here in the UK. No American would accept that. Still. the live music was perfect, not too loud and in tune with the atmosphere.
