Having heard great things and frequent comments about the oversized portions we opted for the senior blue plate. My wife had one very small piece of chicken, a decent side of macaroni & cheese, a small amount of cole slaw and a small piece of corn bread. I had the fried fish-one small fillet and a nice portion of rice... More

home cooked, delicious food didn't love the paper plate and plastic fork -- makes it tough to eat a pork chop but great food at a great price

Big MIKE's Soul Food has an outstanding thing going on. Soul food the way your grandma made it. Order the Blue Plate Special - a meat, 3 sides, corn bread, and a drink. Then sit back and enjoy. This one will take you back and stick to your ribs. A culinary haven in a tourist town.

We loved it. I had seen excellent reviews for this restaurant on Trip Advisor. I decided to try it when in Myrtle Beach. It was great. It's a very low key laid back kind of place. Big Tony himself was there cooking. No matter what you eat, make sure to get an order of hush puppies. A dozen for $2.... More

We heard about Mikes and due to the reviews we knew we had to try it. Glad we did. The serving sizes were big and well worth the price. My husband got a fried fish sandwich and it had 2 large pieces of fish...he was stuffed. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for some southern soul food.

Stumbled upon this place by accident. The building is small, but the service is friendly, and the food is indescribably delicious. We ate there twice during our vacation, and everything we had was amazing!
