The ribs here are to die for and kids eat for free between 12-5pm... shame we didn't know that when we arrived at 6pm but at just £5 great value. The restaurant is not accessible and WC are downstairs. The friendly atmosphere spills out onto the pavement here, the smells make you hungry as soon as you walk in -... More

A great restaurant if you're after a larger meal. Not the cheapest of restaurants, but the service is always great, the food fresh and tasty, and the portion sizes are quite large for how much you pay.

Bodean's is a guarantee, you can't go wrong with it! Staff are always nice, friendly and polite, food always amazing. I've been here several times and of course I'll be back, they do the best burrito in the world!!! 10/10, well done!

£24.99 steak that was so dry, small and tasteless, the peppercorn sauce (£2.50) is full of grease Yuck! Rack of rib was also dry. Spent £85 on meats and chips, nothing special. Service was good but food was a let down.

My friends and I came here a couple of weekends ago for lunch on a Saturday. It was fairly busy but we were able to get a table. We had a range of food ranging from burgers to enchiladas to jambalaya and all were very good - very filling! The staff were extra friendly and helpful which was great!

As an expat, it's good to have a local place that serves good American BBQ and a nice cocktail in a lively, casual atmosphere. And Nate that works there is a gem. He's half the reason we go.

Bodean's has that great american bbq feel - the food is generously portioned, hugely delicious, meaty. Every time I struggle to decide what to have... the burnt ends are simply too good, but the ribs give them a good run for their money. And the chicken is equally good. You cannot go wrong, unless you're a vegetarian. Then you'll have... More

If you're a meat lover, Bodeans is a clear choice. There's a massive selection of platters, BBQ mains, nibbles, sides, and desserts, as well as a large choice of drinks/milkshakes. The only qualm I have is having to sit next to strangers, even if there's lots of free tables. The staff seem to have a problem with spreading diners out,... More

I like to pop here on a day off from work and have a slow long lunch. Its good not to rush the food. The staff are always really friendly and upbeat. The restaurant has an American deco and theme to it, with TV screens playing American sports. The food is really good here. I'm never disappointed with it, and... More

I have been to a Bodean's before, but no this one and I haven't reviewed one (I think). Generally I like them and this branch is as good as any. It's in a handy place, it is well presented and looked after, the booths are nice, the staff were friendly, albeit very slightly slow. If you like meat and BBQ,... More
