Don't let the pictures on their web site mislead you. The amount of meat on the two sandwiches we had was a small fraction of what is shown in their pictures. My wife ordered a basic Corned Beef on Rye and I ordered the "Real" Ruben. And while the size of both sandwiches is large, it is 90+% bread. They... More

Used to eat here all the time. Have not had good experiences here the last several times but we did keep trying. Service not friendly and long wait. Salads empty and not available....we used to buy extra salads to take home during the week but that is frowned upon now. Lost our business.

If you're looking to fill a sandwich craving, this is the place. Browse through their giant list of options and you're bound to find your fit. I've never been disappointed from muffaletta to grinder, Rueben to meatball, and so so many others.

The Wanigan has always been our go to place when we wanted a good sandwich. I always order the hot dog. Several years ago the ladies who ran the restaurant retired and sold out. It hasn't been the same since. I have noticed that the hot dog that they use isn't the same--whether they changed suppliers or what--it's not the... More

Thanks for expressing your concerns. As the new owners, I can verify that we take great care in using the same ingredients for the options on the menu. We have not altered the recipes from those same wonderful women who owned it several years ago. Quality is a high priority at The Wanigan and what we strive to serve at... More

The potato leek soup is delicious. The bacon was nice and thick with the right size to bite into. The chocolate chip cookies are huge with more chocolate chips than dough. All the sandwiches are a good size; enough for two meals.

My favorite sandwich is the #7 (California Dreamin'). It's sooo good and fresh. Trying a new one today, the #11 (Delores' Deli Dagwood).

This has been a favorite for years. My husband favors The Wheel and it is good, but I go for the corned beef which is also very good. The breads are very good which is so important in a sandwich. When the weather is nice the screened porch is a great spot. Also have good side salads.

Came here for a quick business meal. Had #7 sandwich-turkey just excellent tasting. Pretty simple place with a nice relaxing view. We have used this restaurant for take out to customers for lunch and they always really enjoy the sandwich/salad.

I used to work in Bay City and my friends turned me on to this place. I really miss it. I have always liked the Greg's golf club. It is an excellent sandwich and is big enough for two meals. My wife had Rick's rocking Grinder. They mix flavors very well. I sometimes drive out of my way just to... More

I have been going to Wanigan's since I was a little girl and it had first open. There is no place in town to get a better sandwich. Any you select are huge and worth every cent. The Wanigan Wheel, or the #1, is the best sandwich I have ever had a culmination of ham, thuringer, salami, colby, mozzarella, lettuce,... More
