We visited this place back in August. The cook breaded chicken then dipped in the fryer. Another employee pulled the chicken from the fryer touching the same handle full of uncooked chicken batter. The employee then used the same hand to put the cooked chicken in the to go box. Perfect way to get salmonella poisoning. On the way out... More

Visited Myrtle Beach 9/8/2014. Overheard someone talking about a restaurant that is a must while there. Big Mikes soul food on 16th ave Myrtle Beach is for sure the real thing, a little off the beatin path and bit small, but don't let that turn you away. Great food for the price and a lot of it.

Love this place. Had senior plate which was just enough. Food is plentiful, hot, well-spiced and just like your (southern) mama would make for you. Had the fried whitefish, beautifully spiced cabbage, fall apart cornbread. The mac & cheese was dry but tasty. The price is right - around $6.50 for senior meal and $8.50 or so for a bigger... More

After reading reviews on here our family visited the first night of our stay. It is now our favorite restaurant in town. 8.75 for more food than you can finish and includes a drink. Then on our last night we met some friends here for dinner. $51 for 6 adults, great value.

Big Mike's has GREAT down home food and GREAT down home prices! Where else can you get two meats, three vegetables, cornbread and a drink for $8.75. I travel quite a bit and can honestly say this is the best restaurant food I've ever had in my life!!!

Big Mike's is the best place that we eat at when we come here on vacation. Discovered this place last year through tripadvisor. Very small place and can get really busy. We always get the blue plate special, 1 meat 3 vegetables piece of cornbread. They also have great peach cobbler.This is also the cheapest meal that we eat here.... More

The food was great but the service was ok. When you drive up to the place it looks like a whole in the wall but I have learned looks are deceiving. They just need to work on the outside of the building. The waitress that we had was not to friendly because she seemed like she did not like I... More

Big Mike's is a small restaurant located near the main resort strip in Myrtle Beach. It features authentic and delicious southern food. My family and I stopped in for lunch and the moment we walked in we knew we were in for some good food. Right away we spotted plates being delivered to patrons that were heaping and dripping with...

We tried this on vacation after reading reviews on here and we loved it. My husband and I got the Fish and chicken blue plate specials and my daughter got grilled cheese. All the food and the service was great.We look forward to coming back next time we are in Myrtle Beach.
