Sadly I left the restaurant feeling cheated. I dined, had a nice time and the service was good. So good that in addition to the £80 bill the service warranted a £10.00 tip. The card machine was presented and a little box appeared asking if I would like to add a tip to the bill. I decided to pay the server cash at this point. It was only when I left the establishment I thought to myself that the fayre consumed seemed to be expensive for two people with only 1 single alcoholic beverage. Once back in the office on goes the reading glasses and I discover I have been charged a 12.5% “discretionary service charge” and the card machine had requested a further tip. So I ended up spend £21 in tips for a £68 lunch. Well cheers, that’s the last time I will eat there. Yes maybe I should have checked to bill more closely, or maybe expect the staff to advise that I had tipped already... not happy not a sustainable business practise - beware. Yep food good, but not if it leaves a bitter taste upon being manipulated.

Second visit to the Big Easy in Canary Wharf. Had the lobster combo with garlic and cream sauce - amazing and a reasonable price. Very attentive staff and interesting decor. Enjoyed the music but would have appreciated less volume as it was hard to talk over. Will hopefully come again!

BIG Easy is jus that... BIG. So not a great place for a good catch up with friends or for a birthday. The food.... meh! I love BBQ food but when everything tastes so sweet it gets too much. And that goes for the cocktails as well - sugar, sugar and little actual taste. Staff and music were cool - they have a live band.

Great location, great food and drinks! Happy hour was dangerous- great prices for great drinks! Food portions were very worth it for price and the flavours were spot on! LOBSTER MAC AND CHEESE FOR THE WIN. Understand the whole 2 hour policy but being rushed out as soon as 2 hours on the dot was up put a bit of a downer and there was other tables free so it’s not to say they had a queue of people waiting (especially as we was going to buy more drinks!) but overall very satisfied and will be returning!

Great place to meet & catchup with friends or family. The manager allowed us to swap our fries for mash which went down much better with our meal. If your getting steak, I’d advise you to get medium well and then ask for garlic butter.

The staff, on arrival, were very welcoming and friendly. The order was taken quickly, without feeling rushed. The food and drinks arrived quite quickly and was really nice. The staff checked on us a couple of times to make sure everything was ok. I would definitely recommend Big Easy!

Disappointed on this visit. Monday night and on arrival was told it was happy hour and waited ages for our drinks. Ordered a bacon double cheeseburger, it arrived with only one burger. Having dined many lunchtimes on the express menu and very pleased, paid a lot more for the same food so was very disappointed with the experience.
