Steak was amazing! Very loud inside, hard to carry on a conversation.

“Best Charbroiled steak around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

Our Valentine's Day celebrations included great food and service at The Big Chef. There is alot of food with the "Dinner Classics" and make sure you save room for the desserts.
I'd advise making a reservation as the restaurant does get busy. A good selection on the menu and we enjoyed the restaurant so much we had to go back the next week.

“No Fish Please!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

We thought we would try Big Chef because we heard a lot about it. I had the New York steak and it was perfect. Also had garlic cheese bread, salad, baked potato and mushrooms and all was very good. My wife however had the Jerk Mahi Mahi which was a chef recommendation. I have to tell you that the seasoning did not resemble jerk. Quite oily but they gave you a large portion of fish. She also had the new England clam chowder which was very good. Service was just OK for a high end restaurant such as this one. This place is probably so successful because the owner is hands on and serves food also. I would recommend having steak when you go to this place.

“Dissapointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

I want to mention that we have been to this restaurant many times the last time we were in St-Lucia. My husband loved the food. Finally after 3 years we whent back. The same girl who served us years back, served us again. I have to say; I quickly remembered her. She kept snorting the flem from her throat as she was serving us. Then My husband ordered steak that he had been dreaming of for the past 3 years. Only to recieve it extreamly over cooked. Neadless to say, we were there for 1 full month and never whent back. Apart from the snorting, she dribbled our wine on the table and was by no means delicate in bringing our food. OH and don't count on a smile!! I have to mention though there good points. They renovated, which is much better now, and my mom had the "short ribs" we were amazed at how delicious they were! We would go back next time we go to St-Lucia. But their service had better be MUCH better.

“Food was good but the service left much to be desired”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

My husband and I went as part of a group dinner. I don't think the restaurant is used to large groups (15-20) because they were VERY slow to take orders, serve drinks and bring food. We arrived at 7:30pm and at 10pm some folks in our group had not gotten their entree yet. When we asked about the problem, the manager was not apologetic and said that it was her fault for accepting the group in the first place. This was very dissappointing because the food was good, when we eventually received it. I don't think we will be going back.
