Great food not overly seasoned for those of us that don’t want to have a heart attack!!!! Great service. You may have to wait not long but it’s worth it. Definitely a variety of races which I loved….. Try it out you won’t be disappointed.

My husband and stopped by for dinner to go. The lady at the window was very nice, food was good, but.... the wait is a minimum of :35 for your food. This is our third time eating here, so we were prepare to sit in...our car and relax. The shrimp salad is good and the food is tasty with nice portions and seems freshly cooked.More

Run don’t walk over to Big Mike’s Soul Food. We decided to visit during our recent trip and we wanted to go back everyday. We had a great meal and they offered something I don’t get to eat often, chicken livers. They were delicious and...even warmed up nicely back a the hotel. The sides and the dessert we had were also very good. The stafff…GREAT!More

Very hard to choose as the menu sounds so good. Like the idea of "little or big mike". Reasonable prices. I bought a "take away" order. Want to go back for more.

We asked around town where to go for a good change of pace meal and quite a few suggestd Big Mike's for real soul food. Having never experienced soul food, we drove by, saw people parking across the street as the small parking lot was...full and knew this was the place. Went in, gave our name and within a few minutes we were at our table. Not a lot of room inside but the service was fast. I ordered Lil Mike's Special with one meat( fried chicken breast) and two sides. I like collard greens for some reason so that was one of my two sides since it is not readily available in Wisconsin. My wife got the chicken and sausage gumbo, a bit spicy but just fine. Both were excellent. The full plates of food that I saw going to other tables made my mouth water. We are returning tomorrow. Check the menu, many options. I think we will get the seafood platter. There is enough food for two and I heard the waitress ask if the table wanted catfish! Definitely not fancy, but the food was fresh, hot and plentiful.More

If you know what southern soul food is, this is a good a place as any and better than most to get it. My family had a variety of the menu items. Everything was cooked to order, hot, and very well seasoned. If I had...a negative thing to say, it will be the sweet cornbread. I'm not a fan of sugar in my cornbread, but I wouldn't let that stop me ordering food from Big Mike's again. Will definitely slide by there again if I'm in the MB area again.More

Absolutely delicious! Got the Big Mike’s special with grilled whitting, cornbread, Mac & cheese, yams & collared greens. So full of flavor! And for 13.95? Can’t beat it. Order online to skip the takeout line and restaurant wait list. You won’t regret it. Well done...chef.More

OMG!!! Big Mike lives up to his word - Soul Food the Way Yo’ Momma Made It!! We returned the following day instead of going to Calabash! It is just that good! We have tried the seafood basket, liver and rice, collard greens, mustard greens,...macaroni and cheese, fried pork chops, BBQ ribs, candied yams, field peas, cheesecake, and peach cobbler. It was ALL delicious!! The staff are friendly and efficient. I will definitely go to Big Mike’s every time I go to Myrtle Beach!!!More

You want a taste of good down to earth southern cooking, this is the place. Candied yams defied description, that good! Catfish, whitefish done perfectly. Shrimp and grits more than a mere mortal can eat ( hold the salt). Service and attitude was excellent. Seating...is spartan but you are there to eat not lounge.More

The best soul food I’ve ever had. The beignets were better than the French quarter. The chicken is as tender as a pot roast and falls off the bone. It feels like family in here and you can’t beat the food. Heavenly!!

Tasty and quick. Enjoyed the take out. Fried chicken, greens, macaroni and cheese, candied yam and a couple hush puppies. The hush puppies were too greasy. Everything else was great! $14.

1:30pm on a Friday and this place was jamming. Line for eating in and a half dozen people waiting outside for take out orders. If you are eating in, you must go put your name on a list to get a seat. Take out orders...are done at the window. The woman at the window was juggling the takeouts and register with a smile and great sense of humor. The menu is a sandwich board on the sidewalk. I ordered the seafood platter and my husband ordered a chicken sandwich and fries. Now, being a northerner...we never expected the chicken sandwich to be a fried chicken leg (bones in) on a piece of white bread and a chicken thigh on another slice of white bread! We could not stop laughing....But the chicken was excellent! The hush puppies were so hot that they burned a hole through the top of the styrofoam tray. Luckily they were wrapped in wax paper and were absolutely delish. The fried fish, shrimp and oysters were cooked perfectly. Remember to ask for tartar sauce if you get seafood. We loved this place and will be back. Its not fancy, but is churning out some really great food.More

This is a very simple restaurant a few yards off of King's Highway in Myrtle Beach. Our waitress was polite and very friendly. The service was prompt without being rushed. The menu isn't large, but everything on it was real southern soul food. I had...the seafood basket consisting of whiting, oysters, and shrimp with fries, hush puppies and coleslaw. My wife had chopped sirloin, corn bread and collard greens as part of Lil Mike's Special. She didn't quite eat it all. She would never have managed the Big Mike's Special. Everything was delicious. It was very good value, and there was plenty of it. We will be going again the next time we go to Myrtle Beach.More

Maybe if you went during off hours. It has a small dining room and they could probably put a couple of tables together to accommodate you. Nice family business but busy all the time…
