Me and my wife visited here during our visit to London recently. We shared a delicious BBQ meat platter washed down with their signature Lager. Service was brilliant from Nathan. This is a great place to have an informal meal and catch some live sport.

Met up with old school friends, and I'm glad they suggested this place. Plenty of great things to order on the menu - a restaurant that brings genuine American taste to the UK. I ordered the 12 oz. ribeye steak with peppercorn sauce, and even...More

Visited on Thursday evening. Shared the Boss Hogg platter with my brother. Ribs, burnt ends, pulled pork etc etc. Absolutely superb meat that just fell apart. Faultless food. Only disappointment was the slow service but this was because the restaurant was absolutely heaving. Very popular...More

Having eaten at other Bodeans in London this was an obvious choice when we stumbled upon it on Saturday so to try something new or new establishment. Warm welcome, escorted to a table and introduced to the waiter. Unfortunately I can't recall the waiters name,...More

Good BBQ food and reasonably good value for the price. Service was fine, although shredded chicken for a salad was forgotten but brought quickly. The chicken for the salad was a little dry but the BBQ meats were good, chicken thighs and burnt ends being...More

The staff were friend enough and the portion size was good but the food was just a bit bland. I was really looking forward to eating here but this was my least favourite meal of my London trip.

First time at this restaurant which right by the Tower of London. Really enjoyed my meal which was a bargain. £15 for pulled pork, ribs, chicken wings, chips, coleslaw and half a lager. And it was a large plate and finger licking good. Large menu,...More

Having previously visited the convent garden branch and been underwhelmed, we thought we would give it another try. There's nothing wrong with the food really, it's just very mediocre - I've had much better nachos/burger/brisket/chips elsewhere. The bbq beans were the best bit! Staff on...More

The price of the food is based on you getting your lazy backside to the restaurant... which is not a take-away kebab shop btw. If you want the convenience of not having to leave your house then of course you have to pay for... More
