Big Easy is an American dining restaurant providing the tastes of the Southern States, and is based in Canary Wharf, Covent Garden and Kings Road, London. Alongside serving home-style lobster, ribs and chicken wings with big-screen daytime sport and live music at night, they have daily specials such as Lobster Fest, Unlimited Fajitas and Unlimited Boozy Brunch.
I recently went to the Canary Wharf branch with fellow blogger Charli and five of our friends after getting very excited about the Unlimited Boozy Brunch, which is exclusive to Canary Wharf. This includes 2 hours of unlimited Big Easy Brew, Prosecco or House Wine, and a choice between The Big Pig Gig or Lobster Fest. The Big Pig Gig is basically a giant bowl filled with meat that you can request top ups of at any point, and the Lobster Fest allows you to choice either a whole fresh Lobster, Lobster Roll or Lobster Mac n Cheese, all for just £29.50.
Charli and I had already decided beforehand that we were going to get the Big Pig Gig and a whole Lobster and share them so we got the full experience from our visit. Our order ended up being two whole Lobsters, Lobster Mac n Cheese and four Big Pig Gigs. If you are attending in a large group and have all opted for the same drink, as we did, I would suggest requesting a bottle to be left on the table for you to fill your own glasses with until it’s empty. At one point the waiters were continuously being called to our table as we were all finishing our glasses at different times and although it made sense to have the bottle we did have to ask.
We were given bibs and lobster crackers so there was no worry of being a complete mess at the end. As an avid Prosecco drinker, I can definitely say they have a good one behind their spectacular looking bar, the whole restaurant is just kitted out beautifully. The food was absolutely delicious and was a winner with everyone, we will definitely be going again and I would recommend it to anyone considering. Please check the menus for each restaurant before booking as they all have slightly different offers and I wouldn’t want you to be disappointed and I would definitely suggest booking in advance as they are a popular destination.
