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

Three adults went to dinner on a Saturday night in July. We had a reservation, but clearly didn't need one as only 1/2 the tables were occupied. This might have been due to the make up of the area where many people have summer homes and are away. In any event, we entered the main dining room and right away... More

This lovely inn located in historic Sudbury, Ma is steeped in history and old world charm. The staff is friendly, helpful and efficient. Attended a family event there and the luncheon was delicious, especially the homemade strawberry shortcake! One couple in our party encountered one of the inn's infamous ghosts when at 2am, both knobs on the bathroom sink were... More

If you are looking for that genuine slice of New England history, plan to visit the Wayside Inn. Go early so that you can explore the grist mill that makes the flour for the bread and rolls served at the Inn, visit the school house where the little lamb once followed Mary to school, walk the original road where George...
