Friendly service. The salad had a refrigerator taste and wilted lettuce. The entrees were prepared to order and were enough to feed three people each! Basically good but if you don't like a lot, and I mean a lot, of oregano be sure to mention it. Wish we had tried the pizza, it looked great! We had stromboli and spaghetti... More

We were staying in Hendersonville for a few days as we are considering relocating from Ohio. Our realtor highly recommended this cozy, family friendly spot. So after touring the area, we made our way back to Brevard to walk around town. Found ourselves ready for a casual dinner and made our way to Big Mike's. Staff was super friendly and... More

If you are searching for the best pizza in downtown Brevard, NC, you will find it at Big Mike's. A local, Brevard institution for many years, located right next to The Phoenix, just off Main Street, not far from the Visitor's Center. Eat in or takeout. The pizza quality is just the best. Prices are not cheap and could be... More

Decided to call for take out after a day of hiking in Dupont Forest. I ordered the wings to be picked up in about 20 minutes. When I arrived the wings and salad were waiting for me. I ordered the chili spicy wings and they were very good. They start out sweet tasting and then there is the spicy which... More

We stopped in at Big Mikes when we arrived at Brevard. We planned on ordering pizza, but also ordered some Italian dishes as well. The food was great and the helpings were large. The service was great also.

We visited twice during our stay in Brevard. Each time the food was delicious. Got wings the first time. Would advise to order them one step down from your usual choice. I ordered mild and they we more like medium. Waitress was great. Second visit I got the supreme stromboli. May I say to die for. The thing that made... More

We walked in at noon on a Friday, it was crowded and there were only 2 servers. We should have left when I saw the buffet and there was not much on it. The service was slow, the server never offered refills or straws. We weren't told about the buffet and it wasn't on the menu. I would have ordered... More

Big Mikes used to be our "go to" place for great Italian but it's gone downhill tremendously. The last 3 out of 4 times we have been there the food was just not up to par. The last carry out we got was inedible. They were supposed to send us a refund for the last disappointment but we never got... More
