Big Mama's has a nice homey feel with a great breakfast menu. Eat inside or out, but either way, you have a great view of a unique Florida bayou. Good service and nice staff.

Went with 6 others for lunch on Wednesday. Place was very busy, but we were seated immediately. Quick, friendly service. Long list of veggie/sides to select, so I order the 4 veggie plate for $9. VERY GOOD!

I've been here a couple of times for lunch and was happy with it. So it was time to give breakfast a try. Good food and good service. It'll be my new go-to breakfast place in PC. The bacon is especially good.

One of the cheapest breakfasts in the area and the food is great! No fancy surroundings but good food. If you order the pancakes they are 3platter sized ones. Good chicken fried steak and white gravy.

Picnic tables lined up for seating. Standard food, not bad, not great. A local place, with many regulars. Service was fine, and seemed to be a clean place.
