A popular place and we can understand why. Good ambience, excellent choice of food, friendly and efficient service and a nice choice of beers and wine. I wanted something light so just ordered a starter which was huge so make sure you are hungry if you come here! Can't fault this place in any way and although we didn't eat... More

Went here on a Saturday night while visiting in Mt. Shasta. Nice live music playing in the background. Their Lobster Bisque was fantastic, not too heavy, creamy - just smooth and perfectly seasoned. So popular, it's only available until it runs out! "Baja" fish tacos were fresh and delicious. Chipotle burger a good choice too. Extensive beer selection. Friendly staff.

I am always in search of the perfect wood-fired pizza so I was excited to see the Wayside had a wood-fired oven. But, unfortunately, the search continues. The pizza was fine but just not spectacular. The service was good and the prices okay. They really need to invest in their seating though as you really sink into the vinyl booth... More

The restaurant was packed but the wait staff did a great job of keeping up with patrons! The typical American menu...actually quite delicious! Loved the garlic fries! The casual atmosphere was a great way to end our busy day and satisfy our appetites.

Hearty American food, nothing fancy, all good. The place where the locals eat, and well worth it. Good service moves tables, but you don't feel rushed. The rib eye was tender and flavorful, the pulled pork delicious. Salad is bagged and dressing bottled as you might expect. Karaoke guitar player in the Starlight Lounge was a nice addition, and so...

I am visiting Mt Shasta for work retreat and brought my husband and two teenagers with me. We decided on the Wayside for dinner and we are so glad we did. It's a wonderful casual atmosphere that my kids loved as well. My husband appreciated the local beer variety that they have on tap. The food was truly amazing. My... More

Great atmosphere, great food. Several beer choices on draft. Place is packed at night for a reason. Mixed crowd of families and singles.

This is our first choice always in Mt Shasta. Excellent food. My fav is the pulled pork. Great environment. It's the kind of place you want to spend time and hang out with friends in. When ever they have live music it is wonderful. Great energy in this place, very warm and welcoming. The only bar worth going to in... More
