Big Mike’s Sports Bar & Grill is a Baton Rouge bar located in Denham Springs, Louisiana. It was featured on Season 5 of Bar Rescue in an episode originally airing on March, 26, 2017.
Big Mike’s has an interesting backstory in that it took on 6 feet of water during the recent Baton Rouge flooding. Needless to say, that did quite a bit of damage to the bar. So much damage, in fact, that Bar Rescue spent over $750,000 on rehabbing the bar.
This episode of Bar Rescue is fairly unique in that the main problem affecting Big Mike’s was a natural disaster, rather than poor management. Jon Taffer actually left most of the bar’s menu alone because it was so popular, opting instead to just add a few new specials.
As part of the remodel, Jon’s crew added a dedicated “LSU Room” and a slightly smaller “Saints Room”
Big Mike's Sports Bar & Grill Update - What Happened Next?
Thanks, in part, to the massive rehab project undertaken by Bar Rescue’s crew, Big Mike’s Sports Bar & Grill is still alive and kicking.
Currently, it’s sitting at 3.5-stars on Yelp. Reviews note that the bar is always packed, which seems to be a good sign. A few people criticized the food, but most customers seem happy.
For now, it appears that Big Mike’s Sports Bar & Grill is another successful Bar Rescue for Jon Taffer.
