I want to say a big thank to the tall mix raced lady with exceptional beautiful eyebrows. I didn’t get her name who made my Mum feel so special on her birthday. She was personable warm loving and friendly and you don’t get service like that these days. She deserves a promotion because I genuinely she is lovely person

Big easy Kings road has really gone downhill. We eat there about 4 times a year and always have the Lobster meal medium size 1.5pounds.

Over the past year the Lobster has been less than the weight prescribed an dlast 2 times over cooked and shrivelled up. chips are no longer included in the meal deal and the salad has shrunk to half the size.................so 30 pounds for a lobster one can buy in Iceland for 6.50 pounds is very poor value.

I will try one of the other 2 restaurants and trhen stop using it unless much better.

Food was amazing, wait staff were good when they were around but they seemed under staffed as it took a long time to get anyone's attention.

We had the unlimited bbq everything was dry! Ribs were tough! We requested chips which didn’t come until after the meal! I complained to waiter who shrugged his shoulders as he handed me the card machine for payment! We will not be returning!!

So sad that the iconic Big Easy is now a very average diner style restaurant with distinctly average (warm) food, a tatty decor and not much else. I used to spend my twenties here happily drinking cocktails - perhaps without the alcohol(!) to cloud my judgement it’s just not a place I would go again.

As always, Big Easy never failed to disappoint. The £12 Express lunch is fantastic value and the quality of food is superb. The service is impeccable and there is a chilled ambience. Definitely worth a visit.

Food has gone down hill
I have been to big easy many times but this time food was not good at all
My steak was dry tough
Bbq wings were sour
Prawns no flavour
Waste of money

BE has a great atmosphere that grabs you as you go in and sets the scene. Wide choice of sea food and meat dishes served by attentive staff, including my favorite of jumbo shrimp which are delicious. We had a thoroughly good time.

Easy to park right outside on a single yellow line at the weekend 👍🏽
We went to the bar and were the only people there , we weren’t offered drink or even acknowledged by the bar staff .
So we decided to go downstairs and wait at our table for friends to arrive . It’s a tight squeeze and not much room to spare !
Friends arrived and after 10 mins we still haven’t been offered a drink , bearing in mind we drove over an hour to get here!
Finally our order was taken and food arrived . Which is always good , we’ve eaten here many times .
But there was no pazzaz or personality from the staff , I do expect good customer service and was very disappointed .
There was no atmosphere at all compared to other times I’ve been here , a good attentive waiter can make all the different to your experience ! It wasn’t bad , it just wasn’t anything special sadly .
A bit of customer service training for staff needed .

Feel like big easy has gone down a little bit over the years, definitly too small of a venue to for in all them people in, just too much of a noisy meal can't hear yourself think or speak

The waiting staff gave exceptional service. The food was all superb except for the hips which were a bit too greasy. The staff at the door were very unhelpful as we had a wheelchair with us and when asking for a table upstairs they suggested we sit at the bar to each which obviously couldn't have been done. We were standing by the door for about 5 minutes waiting until they eventually pushed together 2 tables that were free which I initially suggested

Friday night, not too busy but incredibly slow service - took 20 mins from ordering a drink to it arriving at our table. Food was 30 mins from ordering to arrival. When it arrived it was tasty but tepid. They forgot one side order - second round of drinks took a while to arrive too. It used to be much better than this - we’ve been coming for many years. Service used to be better. Waitress was friendly and overworked.

Table of 18 people, one waiter so food came out cold, when asked for things he didn’t return for long periods. We had to ask other staff to help us.
Things were missing ie chips and drinks took 45 mins for the birthday boy to get a milk shake.
Was sat down stairs which was dark and stuffy, live music was poor and to loud.
They did wave the service charge but the experience was ruined for my sons birthday.
Will sick time the west end branch in future.

Unfortunately the food and service have gone down hill since my last visit approx 18 months ago. The starter arrived quickly but the portion was extremely small, the glasses were dirty and had to be changed, I asked for normal chips but got cheesy chips, other diners seemed to wait ages for their food and for tables to be cleared. Food tasted nice but the quality has dropped. They also seem short staffed. This is a shame as the concept and menu are all good.

Front of house was very welcoming and attentive. The food came out very quickly and was tasty. However the slushy cocktails were too weak and the table service was very slow. It took time to get the waiters' attention. Staff were very polite but not as alert as should be.

I visited the restaurant with my baby in a pushchair, which the restaurant was made aware of prior to our visit. staff were not accommodating and seated us downstairs and there were no lifts in the building. Staff did not help to carry the pushchair downstairs and rather watched us struggle. We ordered lobster which was served to us very quickly. The morning after our visit those of us who had ordered the lobster were experiencing stomach problems we will not be visiting this restaurant again

A lovely experience. The food was good but we went overboard with the platter to share so did not have a lot of room for our mains.
Lovely waitress but she forgot our chips so by the time they arrived we had almost finished.
This was removed from the bill as well as the service charge. Which was very fair of them.

Spontaneous night out for me and my lady, when we sat at our table the waiters were a bit slow to approach us. But when they finally did the rest of the night flowed very well. Most importantly me and the fiancee had a great night. Thank you!

As always the food is the star here - good BBQ and drinks. Bar was a bit loud and hard to get away from as the space is small but staff were happy to move us a bit further away and out of the draft. Pulled pork my favourite but all our BBQ choices were enjoyed. Slight niggle was the waitress who asked us to put in tip even though they have 12.5% service charge - watch out for that and have a lovely bbq!

The waiters (staff being trained) stand around doing a lot of chatting and not really helping. Our main meal was delivered before our starters and it ended up with us eating our main meal and starters at the same time. There are too many staff standing around talking to other staff and not being worried about whether their customers need anything - I have been to the Big Easy at least twice a year for the last few years and this time i was very disappointed.

Indifferent food four four of us and for my client, who is a vegetarian, a catalogue of disaster. Her coke failed to arrive. We had to ask twicw . Her main course - fajitas- was a mess / no peppers in the kitchen apparently so broccoli substituted . We had to ask three times where her meal was - we had almost finished ours when it finally arrived. A greasy concoction which she couldn’t eat .
As she was hungry ( ! ) we ordered an ice cream for her - it never arrived .
Don’t go .
