“Drove By But Turned Around”

Big Mike's Steakhouse
Ranked #33 of 152 Restaurants in Orange Beach

Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

On our way to LuLu’s Buffett for dinner, which was going to be a 3 hour wait, we drove by and saw Big Mike’s and decided to turn around and eat dinner at this place instead. The BEST decision we made all vacation! My husband and I shared the 24 oz Ribeye, which was cooked to perfection. Our waiter was amazing. Our drinks were always full and he made great recommendations. We will still make our way to LuLu’s for dessert, but without the 3 hour wait and not hungry. If you want an excellent steak, treat yourself to Big Mike’s. Hands down one of the best steaks we’ve had.

Its a little expensive but worth every penny!!! Ive been almost a dozen times and tried most of everything on the menu. Ive yet to find anything on the menu that wasn't good. The steaks are pretty close to the best steaks ive ever had! Gotta try the Big Mike when you go!!

Excellent food and service. The atmosphere wasn’t great, seemed a bit like a hole in the wall, but the food was wonderful. Steak was prepared perfectly!

This was the first time we had gone to Big Mike's ... and it won't be the last. It is fairly new to its location on Canal Road...we had driven by several times and parking lot was always full. 6 of us who had been visiting from IL went because several were hungry for steak and heard good things about it. One thing we had heard was that the dining area was relatively small and they did not take reservations. We went around 5 pm on a Thursday night and waited at the bar for about 20 minutes to get our table. 4 in party ordered steaks ... two of us, including me, ordered the crab cakes with fried green tomatoes and grilled shrimped...which are stacked on top of each other. The food and service were outstanding. Our server was all business...answered questions about the food, took our order and was gone...no chit chat...Steaks were cooked to perfection and my crab cakes were killer good. The servings are fairly large...they do allow you to split an entree and order sides for $7 <?> I think we ordered, ate and checked out in less than an hour...they know how to serve and turn tables over quickly. When we left, there was a pretty good wait and people were sitting outside. If you go, go early or wait until later would be my advise...but, go!

Ate there last night. Steak had a very burnt flame crust with a touch of bitterness. Ask waiter about cooked over wood as website boasted and he said not wood but charcoal. Website also claims seven season rub. I could not taste any seasoning only a burnt taste. It was correctly cooked med rare as ordered. Service was o.k. Would not return.
