Not fancy but good food

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!

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

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

I went in and had their "famous wings" and they stood up to their reputation. Their pizza was amazing as well. Canoli for dessert and the kids loved the gaming area! New favorite spot when I come to Brevard, much better than the place next door price wise too.

I've been here for pizza because it provided a place to sit down. It was okay. Neither of us were crazy about it. But I have since been there for a burger and it was excellent. It is more of a sports bar with televisions blaring on differing channels. I was wishing they would just pick one channel.

Big Mike's is hit or miss on service and food quality. Seating area is laid out in a fashion that can be hard to move around if there are larger groups and it can be really noisy at times.
