We had dinner here the night before our hike up Mount Shasta. My husband and I both ordered off of their Fourth of July menu. He had the lasagna and I had a hatch pepper fettuccine Alfredo with asparagus. The portions were generous and the food was good. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I would recommend waiting for the... More

My husband and I travel to the Mount Shasta area frequently and love to have dinner at the Wayside. Once an old "watering hole", located at the south end of Mount Shasta, the restaurant has been updated but retains its funky, eclectic style of ski cabin, dark woods, and mid-century bar. The owners are actively involved and make us feel... More

The food was mostly OK. Decent pizzas with a sauce that is just a bit too sweet. Burgers were good. Fish tacos were way too salty. Our server was pathetic. She started by coming over to our table telling us she is still busy with other tables so she will be able to be with us soon (what?!). Then she... More

Typical brew pub. Outdoor dining with a view was great. But menu variation limited. Go for it if you like beef and burgers!

We chose here because of the TA rating - and were disappointed. Their "famous lobster bisque" was Tex-Mex spicy and two of us sent it back. One steak ordered 'medium' was served almost raw - sent it back, too. The waitress seemed harried and overly busy to pay attention to our table.

We found the Wayside Grill by accident when visiting Mt Shasta. The food was excellent and the service was even better. A local hang out. It was a Saturday night and there was live music by a man playing the guitar. Highly recommend!!

We just got to town, it was Valentine's day. I called at 7 pm, and I was told they could accommodate us between 8:00 - 8:30 NICE! At our arrival we were welcomed to sit at the bar, while they were cleaning up our table. The ambience was beautiful. The service was warm and attentive. The food way beyond my... More

My wife and I decided to head up to Mt Shasta for her birthday and have dinner at the Wayside grill again. After last times visit I thought it hard to imagine I would have an even better experience this time ( 10 / 10 last time). This time was even better than last! The service was great and the... More
