“Ok or price”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Had breakfast and sausage gravy was too peppery. Best thing about breakfast was the check out. Waitress only stopped by once and that was to drop off the check.

“Does my mom work here?”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

I had an outstanding meat loaf lunch today with hand cut fries, peas and carrots and a roll with an iced coffee to drink. The meat loaf was so good that my mom must be in the kitchen making it. Thanks for the meal and thanks for the memories. I sat a t the counter and enjoyed it all. Mom would serve it with mashed potato but who can pass up a great french fry!

“Always excellent!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We go here often for a quick meal anytime of the day. They have the best breakfast (minus the home-fries) around and you can get it all day if you like! The service is quick, food is typical diner food. I recommend the hot turkey sandwich. Servers are good at what they do and always are in good spirits. It can be a busy place at times but the wait is not typically too long.

“What happened here?”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We grabbed a burger here late night some months ago, and it was absolutely fine--came out nicely cooked, hot, and the rest of the order was good. But today, the food was really wretched--cold, oily French Fries, overcooked cold burger (like a rock when ordered medium), burned roll. Only the cole slaw was edible. I asked twice for a pickle--nada. I got one sad droopy tomato slice on a lettuce leaf that had been out of the fridge for hours. I paid for something I couldn't eat, so I won't be inside the door of the Wayside any time in this century. Sorry, folks. That was pitiful. Too bad for a restaurant that's been a community staple for many years.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Definitely take a trip outside of Montpelier to try this gem. Good-sized portions, well-made food, and excellent service: what more could you ask for? Save room for the maple pie, because you will definitely want to try it!
