BBQ & Lobstershack. We're a local institution, with an international following, this powerhouse of a restaurant is set over 2 huge floors in Covent Garden boasting a 9m wow factor bar on the ground floor & a more intimate speak-easy style shelter bar on the lower deck.

We proudly offer a large slice of easy going living, inspired by the Gulf Coast, with live bands 7 nights week, a friendly welcoming atmosphere, fresh cocktails, ice cold beers and generous portions of
good old home-style cooking offering Home-Smoked BBQ & Fresh East Coast Lobsters.

Fast forward to today and we continue to uphold those time-honoured traditions; social occasions of the bygone age, friends getting together over great fresh food, plentiful drinks and music - these never go out of fashion.

    Servers were very attentive and accommodating. My dad was fussing about missing the football match to my sister and I, the servers overheard and turned it on for him which was very lovely. The food was really good and the wait time was not an issue. Definitely recommend, will be back!

    Food was without fault. Waiter forgot water & cutlery. Busy Saturday evening, buzzing. Good music played, but rowdy.

    Never had a bad experience at Covent Garden Big East. Our table was ready on time. Our order was taken and the drinks and food arrived in good time. Our server checked and offered more drinks and dessert. One of our sides wasn’t quite what was ordered but it wasn’t worth asking for it to be changed. Will definitely visit again

    Poor experience. Our server seemed very pushy to add the unlimited drinks to our selections, even though we had places to be after dinner. My steak and lobster was poor. The steak a rough cut and just ok cooked, my half lobster had half of the half tail and one claws worth of meat. My wife’s bbq plate was acceptable. Our server at no stage checked in on the food, didn’t bring the requested sauces and then was rude when I asked for the service charge to be removed, we’d had no service to speak of and I’m not getting into the “American” habit of just paying an additional charge for entitlement rather than service. Had we not had other places to be I’d have asked for my food to be taken back, and given the fact we’ve had pretty good experience here in the past, I can only call this experience disappointing at best. No doubt we will have the usual comment of we’ll try harder if we come back, but I’d prefer to have direct communications as based on this, we wouldn’t go back.

    Food was great. The place was rather quiet but a bad played live so that got quiet loud. The waiters were quite rude. Considering a 12.5% service was included on the bill there were no please nor thank yous or apologies when they missed items from the order. Lobsters were fantastic as usual but when we left all we could do was complain about the staff, they did not even say goodbye when we left.

    We went for late lunch/early dinner at 16:30, such a good range of food options. Best tasting steak and potato skins. Staff were lovely and efficient. Would recommend going again!
