We were staying at a local hotel in town and decided to order pizza. Pizza was very good. Food was hot when delivered and actually arrived in less time than we expected. Parmesan breadsticks were ok, a little too dry. We had a Chicago style...More

You might pay more than Little Cs or Pizza Hut, but it’s totally worth it. Big Al’s pizza is not cookie cutter, franchise pizza- it’s handcrafted and worth the extra bucks! Their bbq Hawaiian pizza is absolutely amazing- and their subs(grinders?) are the best. Their...More

Wow. 6 guys working a pizzeria on a late Sunday night in March was intriguing. The hand tossed crust made for a flexible pizza. I prefer a crisp crust. The sausage was chunky and the sauce was tangy. They told me it would be ready...More

Great pizza. If you like your pizza the traditional old fashion way, you will not be disappointed here. After reading the reviews regarding the subs, strombolli and sub sauce I can't wait to go back.

As a native to Manistee, anytime anyone from out of town asks for a restaurant suggestion I always recommend Big Al’s! When you walk in, you may be shocked at first as it isn’t the prettiest or spotless, but the food is where it’s at!!...More

Had their signature sub. Toasted, bread was good but nothing special. Ingredients were good but average. Clean but a little aged. Mom & Pop operation. Good service. Would try their pizzas next time.

Everything at Big Ald is pretty much homemade. They make their own dough every day and bake fresh sub buns each morning. They also make their famous sub sauce and pizza sauce. The use of fresh and real ingredients makes this a must try.
