Service was a little slow but to be expected it was a very busy Saturday evening. After ordering food came very quickly almost at the same time as our first drinks. I had the lobster roll which was amazing that came with a free cocktail which was really strong. Boyfriends food was equally good it’s American bbq fare not fine dining it hits the spot, good location, nice vibe if a little noisy but hey we had two courses each, multiple drinks and the bill came in at £84 which was fine by me!

We felt that as we were a young couple, we didn’t get the same treatment as everyone else around us. We had to ask for the bill 3 times before they gave it to us, which was very disappointing. Overall, we’re not very impressed and we won’t be going back.

It’s was my girlfriends birthday and she loves shellfish so it was the perfect choice.
Obviously not the most romantic date because you have to eat lobster with your hands to a certain degree but the waiters and atmosphere was amazing.

The staff sung happy birthday and gave her free ice cream she was so happy 🙂.

Thank you Big Easy.

The waiter was rude and sarcastic when ordering are food. The wait was very long and the space was small didn’t have any room on the table. The couple next to us was basically on the same table as us

Good overall experience. Whilst food arrived quickly after ordering, it was impossible to get anybody’s attention to get cutlery, order anything extra or even get the bill. Food was exemplary.

The vibe was great. We went for the Daily Special - Shrimps Tuesdays - wish it actually meant unlimited, after we finished our first serving we received 4 prawns in the next serving and that was it.

First walked in to the place, welcome by two lovely ladies who greeted me happy birthday. Unfortunately we did not get our birthday greeting, the drinks was missing one cup, no ketchup and mayo, one of my friends steak was missing a bernaise sauce, had to ask 4 times for her and other waiters to get us a jug of water, I personally found this experience very disappointing, the waiter seems that she really didn’t care and gave us dirty looks while we spoke to her. On top we had to pay £23 service charge which would be fine if we had a proper service.

Quite disappointed with food and service. I've been here a few times before but I only had drinks and snacks/nibbles. This time I went in with my wife and ordered a main dish, two sides and a starter. The lady who served us said this is not enough for two people so we ordered another side and a starter. It turns out, the food was more than enough and we could barely finish the half of food we ordered. I'll be honest, the sides were good, especially mac and cheese and calamari. The main, however, was a big disappointment. We had ribs, 3 jumbo shrimps and chicken. Ribs were very dry and shrimp was terrible. I don't know what was wrong with shrimps - normally I am a shrimp killer but I did not finish the last one.

I was quite annoyed when I had to pay the bill - yes, they were what I ordered but for that food quality, it was way overpriced. I don't think I will ever go there again for proper dining. I will just go for drinks and sides only.

Great food, great venue and great value for money but couldn’t give 5 stars due to the staff. Most were really helpful but I called in advance and asked specifically for them to not sing happy birthday to my friend due to his anxiety issues and they still did so anyway. Really didn’t think this was good as I was so specific when asking them not to and it caused us issues for the rest of the day.

Food, atmosphere, live band and location was great. I went there with my partner and 2 kids and they thoroughly enjoyed the food. It is very busy though and can understand sometimes the service can be slow, though the staff were very polite and welcoming. It did not put me off and would return.

Table booked for Friday lunchtime at 1.30pm. The place was very busy, but we were seated immediately, by the window, which was nice. The service was excellent, as were the cocktails and food. We opted for a sharer platter of chicken, ribs, pulled pork, fries, coleslaw, beans and cornbread muffins, All delicious except for the muffins, too sweet for us. We also greedily had a dessert, the banana cream pie - sickly lovely, and the strawberry waffle which was better. A great lunch, would definitely go back.

It was ok. Third time having the Thursday daily special. Second time at Canary Wharf. It just wasn’t as good as the 1st time. However, we had a good time & left full. Defo recommend the Thursday special - steak, lobster and half a bottle of wine - £25 can’t go wrong at all!

We went for lunch and the express menu is really good value for money. I would definitely recommend it. The servers were lovely and very accommodating of the fact we had two little ones with us and gave us a table that we could park the pram. However, they also were very busy which meant it took longer than to take our order than what is ideal when you have two small children. The food was great and the portions, especially for the price, were very generous. I would definitely go back again and recommend it!
