We went here last week and really enjoyed the food. We had tilapia, which my husband said was excellent, and perogies. The service was friendly and we stayed for some apple crisp, which was a little too sweet but okay. We went back again and this time I ordered the pickerel. Unfortunately, it wasn't cooked through. We couldn't find any staff and had to knock on the kitchen door. The waitress agreed that the fish wasn't cooked and re-cooked it. When she returned, the fish was very hot and crispy but the rest of the food on the plate had not been kept warm and was cold. There was no compensation offered so we did not leave a tip. It was such a shame, as we had had such a nice experience the first time.

We now have two above average places to eat in Wawa. The owners have done a fine job in remodelling the motel and putting out an intersting menu that both locals and visitors can enjoy.

This restaurant was truly a find. The food was flavorful, the portions were good and the restaurant was nicely appointed. My husband wasn't sure about ordering the polish food, but couldn't say enough good things about it once he tried it. We had pierogis and golumpki, as well as beef rolls, which were covered in a delicious mushroom sauce. The dinners were accompanied by vegetables and a cabbage salad, as well as a beet salad. We agreed that everything was absolutely delicious and we will definitely go here again when in Wawa.

We ate here while taking a motorcycle trip around Lake Superior. We had stopped in Wawa at the visitor center to ask about accommodations, and they had recommended the Best Northern Resort. They kindly called to inquire about availability, but unfortunately they were full. They did get us into the White Fang Motel across the road and she then told us of the great Polish Restaurant at the Best Northern Resort. My boyfriend has some food allergies, which can be a challenge, but they were very helpful and accommodating. He had the lake trout and I had the pan fried pork. Both entrees were delicious. I would definitely eat here again, and hopefully next time be able to stay at their resort.

If you are in the Wawa area for either breakfast or dinner, this is, without a doubt, the place to eat. The prices are a little higher than some of the other area restaurants, but the quality and variety of the food is exceptional -- certainly for this small town, but this is a restaurant that would compete well in a much larger metropolitan area. There were four of us and each person had a different Polish-based dish and all were just fantastic. Well worth the stop even if you are not staying at the attached hotel. Best restaurant in the region by far.
