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

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.
