My daughter's friend saw Big Mike's on the food network - a visit to Myrtle Beach had to include it. The blue plate specials are all you could wish for - deep fried meat (chicken and pork chop for us), mac & cheese, yams, greens - disappointed no cole slaw - chef salad was large too. Was surprised at the breading on the meat and the fact it wasn't real greasy. The peach cobbler was nice and warm. Diner small, not fancy BUT you are there for the food. Wait wasn't too long since food is cooked to order. Will definitely return and recommend to others.

Best fried fish and sweet tea ever! The staff is very friendly. The wait was a little long but once we took one bite of the food, all was forgotten.

We have been to Big Mike's several times in the past two years. The décor could use some help, but the food makes up for it! This last time we did take out. The amount of food in the take out boxes equals what you get in the restaurant. My husband had fried chicken that was fried to perfection a little more seasoning would have made it great!. I had the turkey wings. They were tender, great seasoning and falling off the bone. We both had the mac and cheese. Loved that little bit of cheesy crust on top. We also had the potato salad. Which was delicious, just the right amount of a little southern sweetness was in it. The greens were as good as our mothers' greens! Not cooked to death, but tender and flavored just right! This is a great restaurant for what it is. Soulful food at a very reasonable price!

We had been keeping a Restaurant.com certificate for Big Mike's until we could take some of our family. We went there Saturday, and when my husband went to pay the bill, the cashier said they were no longer accepting those certificates, although it plainly says they do not expire.
The cashier went on to say that it was a scam. This is an excellent way for restaurants to introduce themselves to new customers, who will also tell their friends about it. This meal cost us about $50.00. Even if we ate there with family once a month, that would be $600 a year. Big Mike's just lost that business, because we won't be going back.

Having read all the reviews we were super excited about Big Mikes. The blue plate special was lackluster, with little flavor....the chicken was extremely dry and greasy, the mashed potatoes tasted like instant ones. The corn bread was the best part of our meal. Unfortunately,we didn't get the peach cobbler because they were out. The atmosphere was laid back, which we knew prior to coming. The price of the meals was extremely reasonable.
