I give the Big Pink 3 stars becuase its ordinary food piled up so its a decent value and a cool view of the street. They have decent service too. This is one of the few reasoable places in Sobee Keep it up. Laura

Big Pink is the cure to every hangover! Great breakfast out in South Beach. The decor is industrial and fun. Portions are huge, drinks are plentiful (mimosas, etc)...There are a ton of tables and everytime we have showed up and thought we would have to wait, we don't have a worry when they sit us immediately. Cannot recommend Big Pink enough!!

After many years of sending friends and neighbors to The Big Pink for piles of comfort food I have now had the worst kind of dining experience tinged with homophobia and racial discrimination.
Our party of five left our black friend, a lady with a cane, to find seats for a party of 5. No one paid any attention to her. When the rest of the party arrived we were left to find a table for ourselves and had to flag a waiter down. He gave us menus but declined to wait on our table. A new waiter was assigned to us and managed to keep us waiting another twenty minutes while the wine we ordered could not be found. We accepted a substitution (at a higher price) but still had to wait for it to be delivered. We eventually placed our orders. Just when we had given up hope of food ever arriving, something resembling our orders arrived with apologies for the missing items. My shredded pork sandwich was nothing more than a smear of barbecue sauce on a bun with a few shreds of pork on top. Perhaps it had been intended for my black friend who ordered the same thing. Her order was a huge amount of pork on the bun. When I complained to our manager, James, he took my plate away and swore at me. DO WE NEED THIS?
So if you want comfort food, make it at home!

Great diner in the South of Fifth neighborhood. Good food and a fun atmosphere. It's a little crowded inside, but it's always easy to get a table.

One block over from the Atlantic, Big Pink has a huge indoor and outdoor area. There is usually a line for week end brunch. The salads are huge and can easily serve two people. Prices are moderate with good service. They have many options for vegans and vegetarians.

This is a fun restaurant right on the edge of the main drag in South Beach. I think the location is perfect because you can people watch without being shoulder to shoulder in the crowds.

The menu had typical offerings, but we were surprised at how good it actually was! The wings were great!

This place gets packed so plan on having to wait. And be sure and get a seat outside so you can people watch.

You can't miss it because it is the Big Pink Restaurant - literally!

Pros: Great food, reasonable prices, big portions, fun atmopshere (decor, music, tv), friendly service, AMERICAN STAFF!.

Cons: Tables are pretty close.

The best burgers in M.I.A. Everything in at Big Pink is huge. Their fries come in a bucket. The prices are reasonable. The food hits the spot especially when you want a late night snack or coming home from the club. They stay open to about 6am and is located right across from Opium/Prive nightclub. Great staff too. Their daiquiris could be better though. Overall, its a great spot.

Don't listen to the negative reviews!! The food was amazing and only made better by the excellent and attentive service. The prices are good for Miami Beach and you get enough food to take home and eat for days. There's a great atmosphere and even a gift shop to buy Big Pink tees! This restaurant is definitely worth the trip!!

Pros: Food, service, quiet location
Cons: None

We went here after reading reviews on City Search, because it sounded like a great place. Unfortunately, it was the opposite.

We were seated outside, and waited for over 30 minutes before a waiter asked for our drink order. To top it off, my husband had to track the waiter down. We wonder how long we would have waited if we didn't go looking for him.

Drinks came after another 20 minutes, but were brought by someone else, not our waiter. So, we weren't able to place our order. When he finally did show up to take our food order, he was rude, showed no knowledge of the menu, and seemed like he was stoned.

While waiting for our food, I fell asleep and had to be awaken by my husband. We would have normally just left, but it was 5am, and we were starving, and not in the mood to go looking for another place that was open.

When food finally came, it was HORRIBLE!

Warning: DO NOT GO TO THE BIG PINK!!

Travelers tip: Visit CJ'S CRAB SHACK on Ocean Drive. It's in the 1300 block and incredible. The service was warm, friendly and inviting. The food was out-of-this-world! Try the crab dip, crab legs and especially the hush puppies! The owners could give lessons to the people at The Big "Stink".

Great food, fun atmosphere. Our food was so yummy, that we came back twice in one week! We actually saw Hulk Hogan and his family dining next to us. So we had a blast. Highly recommend it!

I recently visited Big Pink for lunch and experience the worst customer service ever. We arrived and were promptly seated by the host but once seated, we waited 10 minutes and still did not have anyone come over to take our orders. We asked for a waiter and 5 minutes after we saw that the waiter was told to come our table, Dan appeared. He came and rushed and took our orders and did not even ask what we wanted to drink. We had to call out our drink orders while he was walking away. when the server came to bring our food, he briefly passed by and looked at us and then he went to serve other customers with a big smile on his face. Even when our drinks were done and we wanted a refill, he was nowhere to be found. When we were done eating, I had to get up and go look for him in order for us to get our check. He dropped the check and was about to make a run for it when we quickly handed him the payment. It was the most aggravating experience ever. My friend actually left him a tip but i just wanted to tell his manager or just start yelling at him. This guy was just awful. It was almost like he did not want to serve us. He went and served other people who came in after us before he came to us. He stopped by other tables and checked the patrons but not us and he went socializing with his friends at the bar while he should have been checking up on his customers. I had to find him towards to back of the restaurant to come and give us our tab. I have gone to Big Pink several times before and have never gotten such a poor service and i can't help but ask was it because those other times I was not with Black people as oppose to this time. I don't think i'll return to Big Pink again cause that was just awful service.

Let me start with, I LOVED IT. I still think about how good the food was and how fun the atmosphere was. I enjoyed the other fancy and trendy spots in Miami Beach, but Big Pink exceeded expectations. After we discovered it, we didn't eat anywhere else for the entire week we were there. It will be the first place I'll go after getting off the plane during my next visit. I suggest everyone give it a shot. I can only say great things about the food, atmosphere, and service. I met a few friends there also. That didn't hurt. It is the place to see folks, eat great food, and make sweet memories!!!

I loved the Argentinian steak salad and the selec tion of desert. Great ambience and everything looks delicious. The only complaint I have is that our waiter, Travis, tried to touch my culo when I was watching the game on the big screen TV. Other than that I highly recommend the place.

We keep Big Pink's delivery menu on hand at all times. Whatever you're in the mood for, they likely have it and it's likely a cut above the rest! We dine in sometimes, but it's not within walking distance for us and parking can be a bit of a challenge. There is often a wait to place a delivery order during peak dining hours. During these times they will often tell you up front that it may take 1 1/2 hours or more to deliver, but rarely does it take as long as they say. Once they forgot to include our homemade potato chips and sent a delivery person right back to remedy the problem even though we told them not to sweat it!

I eat out frequently and decided to try the Big Pink Burger. Waited about 20-25 minutes for the food and I took a couple of bites to realize the burger was way over cooked. Asked the waitress to please send it back. Waited another 15 minutes or so, but this time the cook delivered it personally, and said to me "this is how it is" and basically brought out another less burnt but burnt hamburger with the same buns as my previous hamburger. This burger is not that cheap so I was a bit surprised that they would have recycled my previously chewed hamburger buns. I can't believe that a fine establishment like Big Pink would be prepared to lose a customer over some hamburger buns worth pennies. Ended up taking one more bite out of the new hamburger and said to the server please give me the bill and I left. Do not recommend at all!

If you're done partying, don't want to drink more yet, don't want to go home. Head over to Big Pink. They'll be tons of people just like you looking to keep the party going at some sane level. Food is surprisingly very good.

Not the most formal place, but one of the best places we ate at. The portions are generous and delicious. We had breakfast (a five egg omelet) and dinner there. This place is really the Anti-South Beach experience -good food, good value, and be comfortable!

Even though this is not a FIVE STAR establishment, some one forgot to tell the staff because I felt as if I was the only patron. Congratulations to the management and staff!!!

Big pink is a great place to go if you're looking for the relaxed atmosphere of a diner with an ecclectic menu. Try the Southwestern chicken salad, the Chili dressing is so good I could drink the stuff. The burgers are great too, but beware the bucket of fries are inconsistent - sometimes their the best ever and sometimes the worst (worth the gamble though)

Big Pink offers huge portions of good food. The atmosphere is electric, whether for lunch, dinner, or a late night snack.

The only negative is that the prices are increasing faster than seems justified.

This is an informal place without the required 15-18% tipping of other South Beach restaurants. Inside it is very informal with a slightly weird pink and grey decor. The food is gourmet quality and the service is so high quality that it was hard to believe. Prices seem slightly high at first... but don't worry, it's worth every penny. No, I don't own the place or work there.

Did you know this place DELIVERS TO YOUR HOTEL ROOM?!?! How cool is that? Corned Beef Hash so good, you'd smack your own mother to get a plate! Chicken Caesar Salad is recommended as well. Sweet Potato Fries are a must-have side. Finish off with the Banana Cream Pie or Apple Cobbler. Service is good, but can get crowded at night. Club Scouts: Opium is x the street. Feeling lazy? Ask Anna for a take-out menu (she rocks!). Inexpensive too, so stop choking your wallet...
