I love the big easy and the food it amazing, however on a Saturday night there were so many kids and babies in there’s it’s lost a bit of the cool trendy vibe it used to have.

Only the music is too loud, difficult to have a conversation without shouting. Food and service always nice.

The service was very slow even though there was only 5 tables
My friend had the lobster and shrimp mac n cheese.
She struggled to find any lobster or shrimp therefore £10 for just a mac and cheese is quite expensive
I had the lobster California roll which was awful quite soggy. Only had 2 bites and had to leave it. The chips were extremely greasy and the slaw was awful
However the Southern Fried Chicken Tenders were very nice this is the reason why I am giving 2 stars , however there was a lot of nachos at the bottom and only 4 pieces of chicken.
Overall very disappointing

Had the shrimp roll with avocado and it was divine. Portions are large, so happy did not order a starter as o struggled to finish everything. On the whole was an amazing place for Sunday brunch, and highly recommend it.

Great food. Lobsters are delicious and served perfectly. We sat downstairs with the live band so it was incredibly noisy. We didn't mind and enjoyed the music, but bear that in mind.
Servers are helpful with allergies. Service can be a bit slow at times, but staff are friendly and helpful.
Reasonable prices.

Relaxed and easy going. Good mixed crowd- couples, families and meet up with friends on the tables around us. Serve cocktails as well as milkshakes. Warm friendly staff and best of all incredible food. Would definitely recommend for a relaxed venue.

Slow service and a high service charge. Starters and dessert were disappointing, there was also lots of small flies in the restaurant which was very off putting to say the least. I would eat there again but probably not for dinner and won’t ever order any starters of dessert again.

As a regular customer I used to enjoyed so much the lobster quality and size were good. Since the refurbishment done I realised price changed( not surprise) but then the food quality has changed as well, 1.5 pound lobster didn’t look like its 1.5 pounds and the previous one I had was not so fresh as well, whereas before for 2 pounders you get what you pay, even they are in season you still not getting the same lobster as before. I wish they could change for better or maybe better supplier, as we love big easy and I had introduced so many friends to the this particular shop. I sincerely hope that it could improve on their food and offer more choice of sauces like before. One thing didn’t change it’s the calamari, still lovely but again they don’t offer the red sauce anymore :( only white sauce now.

Busy restaurant with excellent food and good portions . My problem is the sitting is tight and legs were cramped . Also with those big tray portions , there should be enough table space per person to put food on !

It’s not as good as it used to be.
My steak was excellent, I must say.
However, the shrimp was more expensive and much smaller than before, double whammy.
The ribs were not as good as before, so I was told by my son.
We do like The Big Easy, but it’s definitely cut back on quality of food.

So I finally found a lovely seafood place.
They also cater for GF too..
Food was hot when it arrived, tasted great too.. However, a little Overpriced.

The waitress was amazing, she went above and beyond for our table and to cater for my allergies.

My mum had a great birthday meal.
We also loved that the kids ate free 😉

Love this restaurant! They do the best Ribs! Unfortunately the jumbo shrimp were quite tough and rubbery. The prices have increased over the years but now its heading towards the question of whether the menu is 'value for money?' At the moment I would rate it as acceptable. Obviously I am referring to the a la carte evening menu and not the daily specials they do which are very reasonable.

This time the service was unfortunately incredibly slow also. We waited 45 minutes for our food to come out. We started getting 'hangry'. The staff should have warned us if there was a long wait so that we could order starters at least. The ambience was casual and vibey, and the live music was great. The staff were friendly and polite. Of course we will be back as long as prices don't continue to increase and food portions remain the same.

Disappointed in this visit to the Big Easy, having had a nice time there once before. Our waitress and the food were good, however she was manning an awful lot of tables in her one area, which meant she couldn't be as attentive as you might expect.

We were directly behind the host table, where a waiter and the hostess stood chatting for over 30 minutes while we sat with dirty, finished dishes on our table. These weren't noticed or cleared until we asked for them to be. Bearing in mind this guy behind us has spent a large portion of his time chatting to the hostess rather than paying any attention to making sure the diners were being tended to - is that not his job? Then only bothered to busy himself once we had had to make a point of asking for our dishes to be cleared.

Not only that, but a couple with a baby came in after us, but having arrived in a Rolls Royce, covered in designer and with an obviously large amount of money to spend - were served, finished and bill paid before we'd even had our plates cleared! The waitress aside, who was lovely, it was pretty abysmal service to be honest. I won't be going back.

Been a couple of times now and always have loved this place.
Great food great atmosphere.
Enjoyed the starters especially the mussels with spicy sauce do like a bit of heat so could of been spicier but then discovered the voodoo sauce so combined the two and wha la.
Very filling main unfortunately this time could not find the room for a dessert but next time will find the courage.
Will always recommend to friends and will always back.
Great venue great staff great food great atmosphere.
Thanks for having us

Service poor. Waiters cocky and no respect for their custom.

Frequently asked for the bill after a period of around half an hour. Each time the request was acknowledged, but not actioned. despite the waiters serving other tables in the process

We ended up asking for the bill five times making us late.

It was my Birthday -which should have been a great occasion, instead it tarnished the evening with the result of all of us complaining.

It's been a while since I've been to what was one of my favourite places. I feel like the service and food quality has slipped. There's no longer crab, other than crab claws on the menu, which is a big shame. We had a good night, but I have noticed there is a bit of a slip in standards. Hopefully it will pick itself up again. Not lacking in customers though.

The staff were very attentive and the food was lovely. We did not have to wait long at all for everything to come to us. The cocktails was a bit disappointing. We could not taste any alcohol in it. The bathroom was very disappointing. Overall I had a lovely evening all the same.
