It's all about the wheel

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... read more

Went there for lunch, stood there for almost 15 minutes just to read through all the amazing sandwich options they have! You can choose the type of the bread, but can't change the side, which is potato chips. Got the broccoli salad with our meal and it quickly became a favourite, just enough seasoning, very well made! Definitely recommending it,... More

Usually visit for takeout sandwiches but occasionally dine in. Huge selections of wonderful sandwiches as well as soups and salads. Not open for dinner. Deli sandwiches as good as any big city. Good value as well. Always friendly, always great food.

WE love this place for awesome, quality ingredient sandwiches, and a nice atmosphere too. In summers there is a screened in porch with tables. Great place for lunch

Wanigan Eatery has been aroundfor a while and I have eaten there many time. The soups and sandwiches are always the best in town. They have a flair for the creative and it works. We use them for lunch parties for 8 to 12 people and they never disappoint. It is a must when looking for the unique lunch in... More

I use to live in bay city 25 yrs ago and we would frequent the wannigan for the best sandwiches, especially the Reuben, it was awesome. I recently moved back and was excited to introduce my husband to their sandwiches. I've eaten many Rubens over the past 40 yrs, and theirs was by far the worst, no flavour at all... More

We have the Wanigan broccoli salad at every lunch meeting. It is always the first to go. The cheesecakes are delicious. There are never enough of them either. The sandwiches are really good too.

Our first visit was impressive. Had to order from a counter, off of a huge list of fresh selections. Had a French dip (the biggest one ever) on a home made roll, that was excellent! The au jus was a bit salty, but we find that to be common at most places. Also had a grilled chicken with grilled onion,... More

Love their sandwiches! Never been disappointed and have eaten here many many times. They use fresh quality ingredients and you can taste it. My favorite sandwich is the #7, smoked turkey and swiss with homemade coleslaw.... yummy.
