While staying at a hotel in Manistee for work, my wife and I spotted a menu for Big Al's Pizza. We had just checked in and had no specific plans for dinner, but had one more service call before we were done for the night. After stopping at a local gas station/party store for a few things, the clerk asked... More

It's a pizza / sandwich joint that churns out tons of food. The decor is not too snazzy but the pizza's are really good. We've never had to wait long for either a table or for our pies to get brought out but we intentionally stay away from the crunch times. The thin crust is very thin and can occasionally... More

Good Pizza, the place was packed with kids when we went so it took a little time to get your pizza, but it was very good!

After passing and seeing the family owned for over 40 years sign we figured we would try it out. We went on a Friday night after 6:30 and the dining room wasn't very busy much to our surprise, so that was nice. We ordered a round regular crust large ham and bacon pizza with a regular antipasto salad. The pizza... More

A friend recommended this place and they were voted in the top 10 in Pizza places in Michigan so I was pretty excited but overall it was pretty average. We had a 3 topping pizza (extremely generous on toppings - could barely see the cheese) which had a good taste but the bread was a little soggy in the center.... More

All the locals recommend it, and it did not disappoint. We had pizza, subs, hot wings and pasta. It was all great. Fun atmosphere and great for kids or take out.

Order 3 subs at lunch time and husband punched them up. When we unwrapped them, mine was completely wrong -I ordered a ham and cheese, no onion with creamy Italian dressing. Ended up with a big Al's special with French dressing. So I called and the gentlemen said as soon as order was out the door they realized their mistake... More

It's great pizza for the money, If your a sub fan, get the sub sauce on your sub, Pretty quick for the amount of people being in there. In Manistee-if you want pizza and not chain restaurant pizza- Go to Big Als

Best Pizza in Michigan. PERIOD. Really wish they'd bring back the bread recipe from the 80's for their subs though.

Busy place on a Friday night. But once you have the pizza you will see why. The prices are great. 2 drinks, a large pizza and breadsticks for $25. Four of us ate and had 3 slices left over.
