A must on Friday when they have a local perch special that is the best. A full service bar with a complete menu of Well presented food. Plenty of parking and an efficient and friendly staff.

We go to the Wayside after our bike rides on the rail trail and the food is always good. You can come in as you are and just relax with friends. We love the burrito's and the burgers.

Okay place and okay good. More of a place for the guys than families with children. Enjoyed the enchilada. Perch was okay but might have been better if cooked in better/cleaner oil.

Wayside has come a long way. Good food a little pricey compared to others nearby. There is a soup/salad bar that is really really nice. $7.00 one trip. $9.00 all you can eat.

We needed a little something to eat so stopped in here. We love little places like this! Doesn't look like much on the outside but great food inside. We loved the burrito!
