I happened upon this quant little place as I was leaving the High Falls in Wawa and needed a bite for breakfast. It was clean and bright and rustic with a gorgeous patio area that had a splendid view of the river below! Staff was great and friendly. I was pleasantly surprised and the sandwich was delicious.

An excellent fine dining experience in the middle of nowhere. The owners/staff were informally friendly and the food was superb, with a surprisingly broad choice. Highly recommend it.

This restaurant has a surprisingly varied menu ranging from German/Polish to Asian to Caribbean to Canadian and it has a decent wine selection as well! Both the food and the service was excellent. We had dinner one night when passing through Wawa and liked it so much we stopped in for breakfast the following morning before heading out of town.

The name of this restaurant is "Kinniwabi Pines Fine Dining" and it is about 5 km south of Wawa, Ontario, which isn't exactly a sophisticated metropolitan area. It was a pleasant surprise, and thanks again to TA reviewers who steered us here. The restaurant is right by Hwy 17, but its interior and atmosphere is pleasant and elegant, and its... More

I have thoroughly enjoyed breakfast at Kinniwabi on numerous trips and this time as they were preparing for dinner, I tried a late afternoon snack/meal choice of soup and Reuben sandwich...YUMMY! It remains as clean as always, friendly staff. Next trip I must try their dinner menu.

After a long day of hiking and taking in the sights along Lake Superior, it was a delight to sit down in a warm restaurant with kitschy decor and enjoy a wonderful meal. Hubs enjoyed Lake Superior walleye or pickerel as they call it in Canada. It was pan fried to perfection and the dill potatoes were excellent. I had... More

Given the reviews and how far it is to anywhere else .we thought this was an obvious choice for an early dinner. The food was a twisted tale on mixing Asian with Caribbean and the only benefit was it covered up the fact we seemed to be eating reheated inner soles given how bad the meat was. We had catfish,...

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel owner and it lived up to her recommendation in every way. We wanted local pickeral or white fish while in Wawa. We were too late for that day's white fish catch, but the bicameral was wonderful, served with a side of stirfryed vegetables and dill potatoes. One of the best parts of the... More

We were told about this restaurant by the folks at the Parkway Motel. They were right about it being a great dinner choice. My husband had a curried chicken dish and I opted for shrimp and scallop fettuccine. Both were very well prepared. My first choices were.local seafood dishes that they had run out of. Not sure if this was... More
