We come here when we're feeling like perch. They have the best perch I've had locally. Isn't going to wow you with decor or views that's for sure.

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.

For a typical bar, I have to say that the appetizers that they serve are very good. We stopped in after work one time to celebrate a successful audit, and plenty of munchies were bought. They were very good, and the happy hour drink prices...More

We go here fairly regularly, and it never disappoints. Their "south of the border" meals are always good and have been a staple of this place forever. However, the burgers are what they really excel at. Unless it's changed, the meat comes from Sander's Meats...More

Food is straight from frozen off a truck to high priced terrible. Their menu is filled with cross offs and blanked out prices to reflect increases in prices as food quality has consistently gone down hill. It is horrible! You can get better food for...More
