SquareMeal Review of Big Easy Canary Wharf

Bronze Award

The Norman Foster Crossrail terminal at Canary Wharf has more than architectural prowess and sensible travel links to recommend it – it also has a Big Easy (the third site, following Big Easy Covent Garden and Chelsea) occupying a third of its top floor. With views stretching over the whole of Canary Wharf, the adjacent Crossrail garden and live music every night, it is a great place to drink in both summer and winter. To eat? There is an oyster and raw bar to keep it bang up to date with current fashions, as well as plenty of barbecue meat. They’re determined to do things in proper American style here: it’s not just the portions that are outsized, they’ve also installed three enormous US-built smokers. The restaurant also boasts a vast open kitchen and the biggest pit room anywhere in the UK. It may seem a bit excessive if all you want is a burger, but they’ve got a reputation for those too.

This show stopingly awful!!!!
01 May 2021  

lockdown has not been kind to these lot. The while visit was a mess. I tried not to be that guy...... but after 30mins I knew that this visit was going to be a farsical shambles. Cold food, no soap in toilet, lack luster service, no glasses for drinks but drinks arrived. wait for drinks was unreal. Spoke to manager twice. Once away from table then second time I did it at the table. This was bad really bad. I would never go back. Manager was putting out fires. I hate secret shoppers but this place needs a kick up the ass, otherwise it's doombed. Christ don't go for the all you can eat because you'll be serverd on plate and have to go begging for the next same with the drinks. I can see everyone was trying but ultimately that made the fail even worse! “Franchise driven money grab Shambles” never again!

EXTREMELY RACIST! I went with my partner. We’re both Pakistani. We didn’t have a reservation and were told that the next table will be available in 1.5hrs. We quietly went out. I checked on opentable and the next reservation was available in the next 7 mins. I booked that and went inside the restaurant. The receptionist didn’t see us come back, we were stood in a corner behind the queue. A white couple walked through the door, no reservation, and were given a table straight away. We didn’t care much because we were about to be seated soon. When we sat down and looked around, there were 8 tables (for 2) available around us. Though some of them got taken up in the next 30 mins of us being there, 3-4 tables still remained empty. So it left my partner and I thinking, what was the 1.5hrs wait for?

There was also a family (of 4) in front of us in the queue, when we first walked in. They were told there’s a 1.5 hours wait and were turned away. During our dinner we noticed a table for 4 available which stayed empty the whole time we were there. So once again, what was the 1.5hrs wait for?

This is the first time in my ENTIRE LIFE I have felt discriminated against due to my skin colour. I am extremely disgusted. The majority of the customers inside were white and it was well clear what the hell was going on in the restaurant! Would not recommend ANYONE to go there!

To make matters worse, we were not given chips with the burgers we ordered and were told that they don’t give chips with the specific burger we ordered. Which was a big fat lie because few months ago I went there and our meal was with chips. I have the pictures to prove it.

Disgusting & delayed service, average and COLD food, overpriced and boring ambience. Would give it a rating of 0 if I could.

Awful food and service table was small and cramped waiter was rushing us and food was less than average.

Nice evening - what I expected

Big Easy is what you expect - a good location, average food and service. The quality of the meal was better than I expected but it is far from Haute cuisine. Large sized portions and good service and atmosphere - this is a great location for a mid week catch up with a group of friends - not somewhere for a special occasion.

Really like the fact that this can be as quick or a slow service as you need dependent on time. Great to fit in a lunch hour. I love the lobster & chips really good value for your money, a lot of lobster.

Great deals including drinks in the price, busy, relaxed atmosphere. Fresh lobster, great sharing platters. Perfect venue to take clients especially when you order something with drinks included!

Enjoyable place to go if you are looking for casual dining with a group of friends and you bring your appetite

The Big Easy Bar.B.Q and Crabshack, uniquely stands out as it is surrounded by the towering glass buildings of Canary Wharf. Being the most recent opening of Big Easy restaurants, this nautical themed restaurant brings you an American Gulf Coast experience with lobster cages, ropes, dim boat style lighting and American Blues music. You will be immersed in a fisherman’s atmosphere. READ THE REST OF THE REVIEW:

Brunch on the weekend, food was great, although I didn't like the corn bread very much, lobster was delicious and it went down nicely with unlimited prosecco! Very good value.
