A word from Big Easy - Kings Road
Founded over 20 years ago, the legendary Big Easy Barbecue and Lobstershack 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 & 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 & 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 ribs slathered in a special barbecue sauce.

With a buzzy atmosphere, huge portions and terrific cocktails, it's impossible not to have fun.

    I had lunch at The Big Easy in Chelsea for the second time on the 20th of November. On this occasion it was just two of us, my sister and I, but we still had a nice time. The first thing that greeted us was the warmth and smell of delicious food, very inviting. Shortly after we were seated we were given menus and fully informed about the daily special and lunch specials. My sister ordered the voodoo wings to start and the lobster roll as a main and I ordered the clam chowder soup to start and quarter chicken with ribs, barbecued beans and coleslaw. The portions were generous and we were relatively full, but there's always room for dessert and we couldn't resist the Belgium waffles with ice cream. My sister, being more health conscious, chose the fresh strawberries with hers. As I'm a chocoholic, I had the ones with chocolate sauce. All of the food was delicious. We will definitely be returning to The Big Easy, it's a great restaurant with friendly staff, a fun atmosphere, delicious food, generous portions and good value for money.

    I took my fiancée here as a surprise for his birthday! I loved the food and so did my fiancée the only issue was that it is cramped in there, all the tables are really close together but as its not the large of a restaurant I guess they have to do this to keep up with demand but i recommend it!! Great dinner and the coleslaw and macaroni cheese are to die for!! YUM

    Came here with a group for a birthday meal and it was just a great. Was packed on a Tuesday night, which is always a good sign, and that meant a buzzing atmosphere. We all had the special of the day of all you could eat shrimp, which was certainly achieved! Service was also very good and the waiting staff made the occasion special. Would definitely recommend

    My husband and I visited this restaurant for the second time. The atmosphere and food were brilliant. The hot wings are awesome. I had a small lobster and it was one of the best I have ever had. The only let down was slow service - however, I did get an extra cocktail by accident and didn't have to pay for it!

    I took my girlfriend's 16 year old daughter as she had never been, I had lobster, Harriet had the special - all you can eat shrimp. The lobster was fabulous, succulent and beautifully cooked. Chips historic, very very good hollandaise and good salad. Shrimp was very good and she had a reload. Lovely, charming waitress and great atmosphere even though we were in the basement. 40 quid all in for great food. Left feeling better than when arrived, which I think is the key test, and Harriet immediately asked if we could go again.

    I've lived in London for nearly 8 years and have always wanted to go to the Big Easy as I had heard a lot about it. I went with a friend and honestly we had such a lovely evening. We each had a lobster which came with salad, fries and a free margarita. From start to end the service was amazing, attentive but not in your face. The wine was also amazing, we had a luscious Chardonnay which went so well with the lobster and was really reasonably priced. I would definitely return to the Big Easy, maybe with a group of friends next time as it is so festive. A great find!

    Make sure you are very hungry when you arrive. The food was epic - huge portions of very rich meat, lobster, coleslaw etc. all smothered in strong bbq sauces etc. Not for the delicate eater - expect to get your fingers dirty. I loved it.

    As ever I had a great time, lobster, ribs and shrimps and great margaritas - I'm slowly making my way through the menu and have yet to find anything that I dislike. The staff are great and very loyal i.e. the staff turnover doesn't seem to be great so I always find someone that I recognise which makes for very comfortable dining.

    Me and my foody friends luv Big Easy, my only gripe is the Kings Road restaurant needs to be a little more roomy as it is quite a tight fit when dining!! Otherwise as long as I am sitting upstairs away from the extremely loud music, I am extremely happy with Big Easy and will revisit many times with my friends...

    Service was amazing. The staff were so happy and friendly. Food was good but could be better. I had lobster which wasn't as fresh as it could be, as I was battling to get the meat out the shell. It should come out clean in one piece. My brother had ribs which were a bit tough, where normally it should easily come of the bone. Over all the flavour was fine and portions were big. Will give it another try:)

    We shared calamari to start, then had a whole Atlantic crab and the Canadian lobster roll - all really delicious and portion size was quite generous (especially with the huge crab). One thing I will say is whilst there were a lot of beer options, £5.50 is too much for a small bottle. It's a shame there's nothing on draught - that's not all that clear on the menu. Staff were really accommodating throughout our visit.

    Visited for lunch, couldn't relieve the fab lunch deal available and it was delicious, it even included my margarita and my daughters wine. Huge fried shrimp, the best hottest crispest chips I have had in years! We ordered crab claws as an extra and they were delicious. I would go again In a heartbeat. Best value in London Im sure! Its truly a gem. Next time I am going to have lobster, another great deal for sure. Our waitress was really lovely, don't know her name but she's expecting a baby.

    My boyfriend and I went here on Monday for a birthday dinner. I wanted something kind of understated, unpretentious (for once!) and an excuse to pig out because it's my birthday, so Big Easy seemed like the perfect restaurant to celebrate. I was a little bit skeptical because I had read so many reviews about appalling service here, but that was quickly demolished upon arrival where the host was very nice and introduced us to our waiter - "the machine" he called him! "The Machine" was a great server, he was very fast and efficient, polite and very pleasant! The food was fantastic, and incredible value for money. We did the All you can eat BBQ which was really fun. I could barely get through one course but my boyfriend breezed through it!
