I had heard good things about Big Mike's and finally got to try it out on a recent trip. The exterior isn't super impressive and it's located right behind a gas station just off of 17, but I was pleasantly surprised once inside. It was very clean and spacious, and the staff makes you feel right at home. The Blue... More

Went on July and had the same phenomenal experience that I did 2 months before. Not enough positive words in my vocabulary to praise Big Mike and his staff. The food is too tasty for words. The staff seems to be delighted to work there and so very kind to customers. Congratulations Big Mike!!!! You are the best!!! P.S. I... More

I like Southern-style cooking. I ate here twice during the three days I was in Myrtle Beach (they are closed Sunday, or it would have been 3 for 3). My parents were both Irish, so this isn't "like your mama used to make" but everything I ate was delicious. The service was warm and friendly, and the restaurant very welcoming.... More

The food was awesome!! My girlfriend loves soul food and coming to this place was the best!! The service was great, food was on point!! The only compliant I have on this place is the parking. Parking lot isn't the biggest and pretty tight, but guessing on a usual day it's ok

This is one of our must eat at places when we visit Myrtle Beach. We ordered the blue plate specials and kids had grilled cheese. Everything was delicious and staff were great.

We've visited Big Mike's before, but this visit turned us off. Never go 1 hour or less near closing because they will be out of everything. Service from our waiter was the worst - a young heavyset male who'd rather talk to his co-workers than serve his customers. When we finally got his attention to refill our drinks, he poured... More

This was the best authentic southern food I had in ages and they give you enough for 3 people. The service is top notch! My son is a picky eater and he was moaning in pleasure. That good!

Not much to look at from outside but after you eat you really do not care. Best of food, pricing & service. Ribs, meats with 3 vegies like I said it's a hidden gold mine but locals know where this place is located.

I found this place by searching the internet. I am so glad that I did. We had more than enough food on our plates and it was freshly cooked and good. The only problem that I had with this place is that the building is not really that big.
