Not the least expensive Italian I've ever had, but very tasty

The server was VERY friendly, made us feel very welcomed, and gave good recommendations. Had two pizzas and a pasta dish - all delicious - and a nice assortment of beer. Came to more than $60, which seems a bit steep. As another reviewer said, it was quite slow, but the friendliness of the server... read more

Stopped in for lunch based on the suggestion of the sweet senior volunteering at the visitors center. Pizza was ok, undercooked in the center where it was doughy, even though requested well done. Fabulous service.

We ate here on a busy Friday night with our children. Service was slow (not just the food prep, but getting drinks too); however, they were slammed and looked a little under-staffed. Once our food came, we forgot all about it. The pasta was great, the salads very good, they had a great beer selection and even our kids couldn't... More

Delicious pizza, really super Italian food, waitstaff handles the crowds with ease and good humor. Wish there were smaller sizes of pizza but we just take it home and eat it later!

The food here is excellent!! The place is buzzing with people and the owner was very involved with his customers making them feel welcome. We are from NYC originally so Italian food for us ranks highly and Big Mike's didn't disappoint. We ordered two hero's, one chicken parm and one meatball. Both were equally delicious. Great food and service.

The pizza itself was not spectacular, fairly average, in fact. Crust was good, the pizza itself was decent, the cheese was a little stringy and stretchy, but there was nothing significant to complain about food-wise. My complaints lie in the atmosphere and state of the actual restaurant building itself. According to the restaurant slogan, Big Mike's will provide "epic food... More

Our friends took us to Big Mike's, and we were in for a treat. Not much from the outside, but the food is good, prices reasonable, and service friendly. You can't ask for more!

In downtown Brevard the place for family pizza or other Italian dishes is Mikes. Pizza's are BIG and BIGGER -- On busy evenings it is crowded -- lunch pizza buffet is excellent.

One of the best damn cheese steaks I've had since I left NJ some 35 years ago. My wife really enjoyed the pizza too. I can understand why so many folks love Big Mike's food. If there was one issue it was the service. The wait staff appeared to be very overworked and stressed. Food delivery took some time but... More
