Absolutely nothing Fancy but...

Great Stromboli... Fast and friendly staff. Will visit again for sure. Had ham salami and pepper rings. Comes with dipping sauce....took half of it home. Crust was perfection crispy on the outside, doughy soft on the inside.

This restaurant was along our drive home after snowmobiling all day, so it was convenient to grab a pizza or sub. Each selection was decent, but nothing we'd go out of our way to get again.

Big Al's has been our favorite pizza place for years. They have a great Chicago style pizza and the best subs in town.

I grew up in this area and Big Al's was THE pizza place in the early 80s. My husband and I recently visited and had sub sandwiches which were very good. Very affordable. The staff is very friendly. My only complaint is that while I'm glad they haven't changed the rustic, country-vibe to the place, they could at least put... More

Big Al'ssign says a top 10 pizza placein Michigan. Big Al's seems to be living on the past. We had two pizzas. Both were undercooked. I hope they get back to where they were a few years ago.

Deep dish pizza is awesome! Both my son and wife agreed. We got the breadsticks and they were too salty and dried out. Won't get them again but would gladly return for the pizza. Atmosphere is not the best but service and food are more important to that to me. And bottom line on atmosphere- bathroom is in good shape.... More

Ate here while on vacation in Manistee. The pizza was pretty good, but average, IMO. We have places we like much better at home. The bottom was too thin or the pizza was just too greasy and it was impossible to pick up a slice without losing almost all of your toppings. We spent around $50 for 2 larges, plus... More
