Took my daughter and grandkids for dinner and everything was really good. The wait staff were pleasant & friendly, service was really quick with all the different items that we ordered and the prices were really reasonable . Really nice family dinner and we will definitely be going back again!

Went here for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised by the friendly wait staff, quick service and made to order food choices. Everything tasted homemade, hot off the grill. Omelettes (country and western) were filled with fresh ingredients and seasoned just right. Pancakes fluffy and tasty, melt in your mouth. Bacon crispy. Coffee was refilled without asking. Very clean surroundings. Enjoy... More

I met my son and his family at Wayside today, for lunch. Three adults, a 3 year old and a 1 year old, we were not looking for anything more than fast friendly service. Wayside delivered that and more. Each of us had our own idea of a perfect lunch; I chose the fresh fish fry; my son a gyro... More

Restaurant is clean and comfy. It has changed since the last time I was in there. They remodeled, which gave things a nice, brighter surrounding. Food is very good, especially breakfast, but not cheap. Wait staff was very attentive.

Last minute dinner idea. Always come here when I don't feel like cooking. Homemade dinners and friendly service. Many great choices on the menu. A South Buffalo Icon

A good variety of homemade meals every day. Soups and sandwiches are fresh and delicious. We love the triple Reuben. Turkey and corned beef and cabbage dinners are also good. Anything Greek is good as are the pies and rice pudding. This is the kind of restaurant that makes Buffalo unique. A neighborhood place where the locals go.

I worked in South Buffalo from 2009 through 2014 and had never been there. Then in May some friends suggested it for lunch. I left there in disbelief that I had missed out on such a great spot over the years. Going back next week. Excellent service, diverse menu, clean and very pleasant atmosphere. Typical of South Buffalo, everyone in... More

We have come to the restaurant for years. The food is great as well as the staff. Prices are well priced and affordable. For breakfast I recommend the Dens Omelet, the house special.
