“Worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

We ate at 5th Ave Grill for years until it was torn down to build a parking deck. It took a while until Mike opened another restaurant. He still has great food and service. It was worth the wait.

“As Good as Reviews Say”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Easy to find since we knew that it was behind the gas station. We went around 3:00 pm and no one else was there. The staff was friendly. We shared the Blue Plate Special to go. It was plenty for the both of us. The fried chicken was tasty, crisp and moist. The mashed potatoes and gravy were very flavorful. The mac and cheese was just okay. Kind of dry. The collard greens had good texture and taste.

“A true taste of the Old South”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Mike Chestnut is Myrtle Beach born and bred. The people he has cooking are real old-time Southern cooks, and everything is delicious. Just don't be alarmed at the clientele. Most of them are the real locals, and they aren't wearing the latest styles! But if you like Southern food, you will love Big Mike's.
