Went here for a late lunch during their shift change--bad timing. Took a while for the food to come out :-( Food was also so-so. Seafood was freshly prepared, but other items seemed to have been prepared earlier in the day so they were dry...More

The staff are very friendly and are very quick to take your order and not keep you waiting. The food is good, but sometimes can come out a little bit burnt. But still an ok place to have good coffee and great service.

If you are looking for a quick meal, with real food, at an incredible price - this place is for you. It is my fallback for all of the above for any meal. Simple, real, affordable - by no means fancy or pretentious.

Had breakfast the other day. $29.00 for two. Seems quite expensive for what we had. A long wait for the food after ordering. It's the kitchen not the waitress. Disappointed.

My daughter and I enjoyed two very filling breakfasts with coffee. Also shared a doughnut. Amazing old fashioned sugar coated donut. Corned beef hash was a bit salty, but other than that it was a solid breakfast. Our check was under $20.

A landmark. Good food, never fancy but often fresh. Great for a cup of coffee and a piece of pie. Always there when you want homemade food.

I love the Wayside. Nothing fancy here. Just good solid food prepared consistently. No surprises when the check comes. This is the way a small town diner should be!!!
