The Waubic is a family owned and operated business, our menu is homemade and freshly baked. We are dedicated to maintaining this quality, so longer waits are to be expected during busy times. We may not be the biggest, fastest or fanciest place on the river, but we promise to do our best for you. So Welcome to our little piece of the river. Sit back, relax and enjoy your Waubic Experience!
