Wayside Family Restaurant serves good food at reasonable prices. The menu includes sandwiches, salads, and many homemade items including delicious pies. The restaurant is clean and the service is good. Not sure if they accept reservations, but we've never had to wait more than a few minutes for a table.

We like everything about this restaurant. It's a nice homestyle family restaurant. When we were in the parking lot I asked a customer leaving if the food was good and he said "the best in the city."
