Convenient, Good Food, and Reasonably Priced

We were looking for something easy for dinner and reasonably priced. Big Mike's had mostly Italian and it was just what we were looking for. Nothing fancy but the cheese ravioli hit the spot. Friendly and the service was good. Granted we may have caught it at a slow time being January, but... read more

We were looking for something easy for dinner and reasonably priced. Big Mike's had mostly Italian and it was just what we were looking for. Nothing fancy but the cheese ravioli hit the spot. Friendly and the service was good. Granted we may have caught it at a slow time being January, but still a good value proposition for us.

We ordered 3 pizzas they are amazing. We can't get that pizza her in Williamsburg. We will definitely eat there on our next trip. The bartender that day was so friendly, he fits the profile of "southern hospitality". We had a pepperoni pizza ham and pineapple pizza and supreme. Stop in and be amazed.

I met up with a group of friends at Big Mike's in Brevard. Only one person in the group had eaten there before so we were winging it. Simply put, the food was massive and delicious! My daughter and I both took more than half of our food back with us. She had the baked ziti (awesome) and I had... More

We found Big Mike's after checking Trip Advisor. We'd been adventuring all day and were starving. We were looking for straightforward, great food and Big Mike's really delivered. The staff was friendly and welcoming and the menu offered a great selection of just the kind of food we were looking for, nothing fru-fru. No one will leave here hungry, the... More

We found Mike's to be a great little out of the way place to find some delicious pizza and pasta. Better yet, what they had on tap was great as well. A lot of local brews, some of which were seasonal. All in all, a great little stop for dinner. It was crowded when we got there so service was... More

The food, especially the burgers, are super. The Greek salad is excellent. But do not go if you except a fast or even medium paced meal. Having been there on and off for 10 years, the one consistent is that the kitchen moves at snails pace. Wouldn't return if the food wasn't so good. Always a wait for a table... More

We began late having a working dinner with a top client and realizing the restaurant closed at 9pm. We were well past that number when I noticed no other patrons. We asked for some to-go boxes and left. The staff didn't rush us in any way. We had spinach mannicotti and a hot ham and cheese sub. Both were terrific.... More

Service was a little slow, but they were very friendly, and the food was very good. Small restaurant, so get there early, or you will be waiting in line. Large food portions, and everything seemed very good for everyone in our party. No complaints. Would recommend, and would dine there again.
