At Big Easy we’re here to tell you that is exactly what you will find in all our locations.

In this guide, we’re going to tell you the most popular ways of eating Lobster

Why We Love Steamed Lobsters

Our lobsters hold a special place on our menu for several reasons, including:

  • The Flavour: Steaming is a gentle cooking method that preserves the lobster’s natural flavours and tenderness, ensuring that each bite is as juicy as the first. It also preserves the delicious garlic flavour and other marinades to ensure your lobster is packed with flavour.

  • Health Benefits: Because we all love a meal that tastes good and is good for you, right? Lobsters are not only delicious; they are also packed with high-quality protein, vitamins, and minerals whilst also being low in fat. What’s not to love?

  • The Versatility: Steamed lobster is incredibly versatile, making it perfect for adding to a wide variety of dishes and experimenting with in exciting new recipes. From our classic rolls to creamy pastas, there’s no limit to what you can do with a lobster, and we certainly know how to make the most of it here at Big Easy.

Our Lobster Dishes

We know lobster is a dish that not everyone has had the privilege of tasting, particularly at an affordable price, and it can be tricky to know how to eat it or what it tastes like. That’s why we’ve created this guide to five of our dishes, to give you an idea of what’s on offer here at Big Easy.

Whole Lobster

Let’s start with the most simple of the recipes, yet one that's certainly not lacking in the flavour department.

There’s something undeniably enjoyable about cracking into a small, medium or large lobster (all featured in our meal deals), especially when served with a chilled glass of Prosecco.

Our Nova Scotia Lobsters let the natural flavours of the lobster shine through. Always steamed to perfection and served with lemon garlic butter.

If you're a lobster fan, you’re sure to love this classic recipe. 

Lobster Rolls & Prosecco

We have a delicious selection of lobster rolls on our menu that only need one bite to help you understand why they’re a firm favourite. 

It’s the perfect food if you’re stopping for a bite of lunch, or looking for something filling and exciting.

Our original roll is a classic. Stuffed with generous chunks of fresh lobster and topped off with celery and mayo for a crunchy, creamy texture, this has been on our menu for years and is still one of our most popular plates.

We also offer some variations on the roll, including our lobster and shrimp roll, which provides all of the above but with some extra North Atlantic shrimp for more crunch and texture.

Our lobster California roll is also a popular dish, adding chunks of avocado and fresh cherry tomatoes to provide a tasty twist on the original.

Lobster Mac 'n' Cheese & Prosecco 

Comfort food taken to the next level. 

We use tender chunks of juicy lobster and mix it into our creamy, rich macaroni and cheese sauce to provide a flavoursome and hearty dish that is perfect for all ages.

There’s nothing like taking an American classic and adding a Big Easy twist, and that’s exactly what we’ve done with this unique and exciting recipe.
