We went for dinner for the first time in a few years and found it to be as good as ever. Our entrees were the swordfish, the scallops, the sole, and the prime rib, and all were as tasty as we remembered. The dining rooms and candle lit tables ooze history, and service was friendly and attentive. We prefer one... More

This is a very warm and inviting place with a very friendly staff. I wish the food was up to the same level. I started with the lobster bisque which really was a mushroom soup with a little color and no trace of lobster. I asked whether the prime rib was from a large roast cooked in their kitchen. I...

I have been dining here for over 50 years. In fact, I worked here on the grounds first as a bus boy and finally as a waiter. Like everything, it has changed over the years. The relish tray is no longer offered and the prices have more than doubled since the 60's. But it remains a warm, inviting experience. It... More

We live nearby and consider this a special event location but in fact the prices are reasonable for the quality and amount of food available. Lunch servings are dinner size to us. Our lunch entrees were in the $15 to $20 range and included prime rib, scallop casserole and a lobster dish potato and vegetable and rolls. Appetizers were around... More

Our family had dinner at the Wayside Inn. We have been here many times but it is always fun to revisit this place. If you like historic buildings this place is very well maintained in the period it was established. Our food was excellent too. A couple of us had the prime rib which was done to perfection. The service... More

We have visited the Wayside Inn many times in the past and have enjoyed the ambiance and food. Recently, we took a group of family members visiting from out-of-town to dinner at the Wayside Inn. The menu was diverse and everyone in our party had a delicious meal. The waitress was very attentive and made sure that everyone had exactly... More

Our friends had been telling us about the turkey dinner here for years and we decided to join them recently to sample for ourselves. It was as good as advertised per my husband who loves turkey. Myself, I enjoyed a delicious salad-the Innkeeper's Salad with grilled chicken breast. Great portion-fresh greens, pecans, craisins, blue cheese with the house made apple... More

Loved this restaurant! Staff fantastic, service unbelievable. I was left alone to eat and read my paper but waitress kept an eye on me without my being aware of it - definitely the way it should be! No constant bugging to find out how I was doing. Food most excellent. Stuffed shrimp rich and delish; butternut squash very yummy. They... More

What an absolute delight!! It helps if you're a New Englander, a Colonial history buff, or just a lover of old places. This is not one of your spiffy, mod establishments with glazing, plants and fake beams. This is a place where the beams are real and where ministers of all faiths from different towns used to gather once a... More

On a recent visit to New England I was treated to lunch at Longfellow's Wayside Inn. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. First of all, I love history and was drawn to the historic nature of the Inn. There were multiple rooms for dining and we were allowed to select the one we wanted. I also loved seeing the old bar... More
