Got a large 3 item pizza. IMHO not very good. The outer crust was very hard and overdone. The bottom crust was very thin just like we like but it was soggy unlike most thin crust I've had.

Manistee doesn't have a lot to offer in restaurants, but Big Al's was a nice find. There was a good line when we walked in and a local told us that it's that way quite often. We were served very quickly though. We bought a three meat stromboli that was awesome. The crust was crispy and it had plenty of... More

We stopped at Big Al's on the way to Traverse City! The service was great and the prices were very good. The BLT sub was good as well as the Stromboli. The cheese sticks needed some seasoning it was just cheese melted on bread. Overall it wasn't horrible but it wasn't fantastic either!!

Big Al’s has become an annual stop on our annual camping trip. Why? Simply put good pie for us lazy campers. I tell you the large deep dish won’t disappoint. Sure, people rave about their Stromboli’s, yeah they are good, but the pie is where it’s at. To avoid waiting call ahead and place your order.. this place gets busy,... More

I hope there dine in service is better than their delivery! I order the steak sub and chef salad ,the sub had hardly any meat on it, mostly lettuce. The "chef" salad was mostly lettuce, very little meat and cheese. When I ordered they said 25 minutes so 1 hour later I called to check and they said it's on... More

This is one place that we NEVER MISS while in the Manistee area. I would suggest trying the deep dish pizza as it always comes loaded with your favorite toppings. Nothing fancy about the interior which badly needs some improvements but....this is a pizza parlor and not a steakhouse. For what they offer, it would be hard to find a... More

They put on loads of toppings and the cheese and sauce are liberal too. I have taken my extended family of 20 there on many occasions and there is something all of them like. They actually made a pizza (chicken and garlic) which wasn't on their menu. Friendly workers a plus.

We had the hand tossed crust, with pepperoni, sausage and onions...it was a great pie. It was done on time and piping hot when we got it home. I will get their pizza again when I'm up there again

We came back from a day in Traverse City so that we could eat dinner at Big Al's and we are So Glad that we did! Great Chicago-style pizza for a great price! The mozzarella sticks were really good as well! The service was friendly and the atmosphere was fun!
