Super Friendly Service and Great Hand Tossed Pizza!

They have great hand tossed thin crust pizza! Very tasty! I also ordered Chicago Deep Dish but i would not recommended since i did ate a lot better Deep Dish pizzas elsewhere! It just doesn't have enough dough to make it a deep dish! Thin crust was real good, crispy and delicate at the same time... read more

This is a busy family pizza place for dine-in or take-out. It is noisy, fun, good service and great pizza.

I love Big Al's Sub Sauce! Okay, now that we've established that...this shop has decent veg options which you wouldn't necessarily expect from a small-town pizza and sub shop. I love that you can get a side of their famous sub sauce to dip their Parmesan breadsticks (yummm) or your slice of pizza in!

Ok so after reading all the reviews and even talking to customers in line that said this is the best pizza we gave it a try. Ordered a large sausage with regular crust and no gimmicks. To us, my wife, kids and I, there wasn't the wow factor we were hoping for. Definitely needed extra sauce which I usually order... More

This place has ok pizza, but I think it's designed more for takeout than eating in. The dining room looks like an extension of the kitchen with seating. 1/2 a dozen large fridges are in the dining room with staff constantly going back and forth fetching supplies, while weaving around the customers makes for a odd feeling you are always...

This is always our 1st stop for a meal while camping in Manistee. Yes it badly needs a interior remodel but...the food is always great! The Chicago deep dish pizza is a must. We ordered 2 deep dish pizza's and both were good. Sandwiches and salads are also very good at Al's. Just go for it! Enjoy! J.

We have been coming here for years and the pizza is consistently delicious. Our relatives usually love the call ones but we stick with the pizza. Oven fresh and hot out of the oven.

The pizza is great. The restaurant is, let's just say, primitive but...I have rarely seen such an efficient operation on a busy, holiday weekend. Kudos to all the employees and whomever it is that manages them. It's a well oiled machine and the pizza is superb!

We ordered their hand-tossed pizza and had it delivered to our hotel room. It arrived fast and warm, but the crust was soggy and neither of the toppings stuck to it. Rather disappointing, but it was tasty enough that we would go back and order from them again.

Don't let the exterior or interior deter you from getting pizza here. We ordered a pizza to go and devoured it in our hotel room after 11pm at night. Was pretty top notch.
