We visit Brevard often and always try to fit in a visit to Big Mike's. It is very busy, but well worth the wait.

Excellent, simple Italian food. Not too fancy. Great place to take the family or friends. Casual. Wonderful service. I always end up coming home with left-overs. I like to share an entree and salad. Their pizza is terrific. Great go-to when not sure what I...More

Bare bones restaurant. The pizza is very good. The salad was fresh but not as cold as it should have been. Dressing is from a squeeze bottle. The service was good.

Get there early, it fills up and service slows. Best lasagna since college days (long long long ago) -- take-out carrier leaked a little, leftover was fabulous. Short, adequate wine list. Pleasant wait staff. Great for a group. (burgers take longest to arrive)

Big Mikes, has delicious Garlic knots. Definitely a local feeling place. Great service, great italian, but HUGE portions on the pasta. Slightly off the main street area so you will have to know where you're going, but definitely worth it!
