Delicious food - really tender ribs.
The mussels were great too.
Slightly squished in in tables of two so difficult to get out when you needed to.
Music was loud but didn’t spoil the atmosphere for us.
Service was quick.
All in all, good place with great food.

For a table that was pre-booked, they were very unorganised. We were led to our table 10 mins late and then had to wait a further 20 mins for menus to be handed to us. Once we had ordered, we waited 40 MINS for jugs of water to be placed on the table. The servers had attitude. For an establishment on Kings Road, the service was well below par and I do not plan to return anytime soon.

Although my son had been previously to Big Easy the rest of the family hadn’t. It was such a good evening- the staff were amazing despite having to deal with a really large party - we didn’t get forgotten at all. The food was fantastic- so fresh tasting. The atmosphere was excellent - would thoroughly recommend and we will definitely be returning

We booked 12:15, It was very quiet, we ordered the steak and the limitless bbq. We also had a Prosecco and a Mojito. It took a long time to be served even longer for the food to come. When trying to get our refills he had to Consistently get the attention of the server who then took longer to have some drinks got over. We were there for two hours and not once was I asked would I like another barbecue helping me just cleared the plates. I spent £66 for three Mojito and three Prosecco. I will not be coming back again. One steak and one barbecue was not the highlight of our date

Had very nice reasonably priced meal. No patroling security guard this time which was good.
Down side guys singing the music. More interested in fiddling with their equipment. Heard about 3 songs in 1.30mins. Lazy.

The service downstairs for our group of 8 was extremely poor, we were served individual mixed fajita platters when we asked to be served as a group so we could share. The portions were very small and took a very long time to be replenished especially the paper tubs of condiments which served very few. We ordered wine at the table and had to ask more than a few times to be served. When we asked for new tubs of guacamole etc, it took 15 minutes so by the time they arrived, the fajitas and meat was cold.
The second round of fajitas was served in a pancake steamer and they were much smaller and a different type of pancake completely to the corn tortillas we were served originally. These "chinese style" pancakes were all stuck together and particularly poor quality.
The quality of the food was not as good as we have had there on previous occasions for fajita night.
I would suggest for a group if the entire table has asked for the same unlimited meal, that it comes on sharing platters as it takes up less room and is easier to replenish and more enjoyable.
The wait for drinks was incredibly slow and our margaritas and glasses of big easy brew came after the first round of fajitas 25 minutes after we had ordered.
Overall, very disappointed unfortunately - this is usually a place i look forward to going, not on this occasion.

Have been many times. Thought this visit was not definitely not as good. Staff as usual very nice and friendly.
We are unlikely to go at dinner time again. The noise level alone is horrendous and you cannot hear the person sitting opposite speak.
I also felt the lobster was not as good as previous visits.

This place has gone downhill. Service very poor and inattentive. Mussels were inedible and not fresh. My husband had the ‘unlimited shrimp’ for £20 which consisted of 6 shrimp and then couldn’t get the attention of service staff for a second serve for a long time. They eventually bought him 4 shrimp. Total rip off. It used to be great here but now it is awful.

Good food and good service. I would recommend. But note to the kitchen, I found a piece of wire in my beans. I assume it had come of the scrubbing pad.

There were flys everywhere flying above our food, so much so we had to move. When my food arrived it had a long black hair in the chips. We paid full price despite this.

Service was fast and efficient, food tasted really great.
The only let down was there seemed to be so many small flies! constantly swiping them away from my food.
However, this doesn't put me off as big easy is always a good night!
Thanks.

Regular big easy customer I visit with my partner once a week, this time we went on Wednesday to try out the fajitas - had to wait 15mins to be seated (even though made a reservation) after ordering food came after 20mins COLD asked for some sauces which didn’t arrive & the waiters response was “sorry we are busy it tastes better without sauce” that’s funny but not when your hungry after work & you get that service we left & paid without even eating - thumbs down

food great. music a bit too loud, but just about manageable. service was awful! waited 15 minutes to see our waiter, and then another 20 minutes for drinks to arrive. we got a bit worried as we only had the table for 90 minutes - luckily they didn't chase us out as we were still only eating our main course at that time!
