I am always in search of the perfect wood-fired pizza so I was excited to see the Wayside had a wood-fired oven. But, unfortunately, the search continues. The pizza was fine but just not spectacular. The service was good and the prices okay. They really need to invest in their seating though as you really sink into the vinyl booth... More

The restaurant was packed but the wait staff did a great job of keeping up with patrons! The typical American menu...actually quite delicious! Loved the garlic fries! The casual atmosphere was a great way to end our busy day and satisfy our appetites.

Hearty American food, nothing fancy, all good. The place where the locals eat, and well worth it. Good service moves tables, but you don't feel rushed. The rib eye was tender and flavorful, the pulled pork delicious. Salad is bagged and dressing bottled as you might expect. Karaoke guitar player in the Starlight Lounge was a nice addition, and so...

I am visiting Mt Shasta for work retreat and brought my husband and two teenagers with me. We decided on the Wayside for dinner and we are so glad we did. It's a wonderful casual atmosphere that my kids loved as well. My husband appreciated the local beer variety that they have on tap. The food was truly amazing. My... More

Great atmosphere, great food. Several beer choices on draft. Place is packed at night for a reason. Mixed crowd of families and singles.

This is our first choice always in Mt Shasta. Excellent food. My fav is the pulled pork. Great environment. It's the kind of place you want to spend time and hang out with friends in. When ever they have live music it is wonderful. Great energy in this place, very warm and welcoming. The only bar worth going to in... More

Selected Wayside for dinner based on TA reviews. Experienced poor service and mediocre-at-best food quality. To their credit, the guy whom I assumed to be the manager was very helpful when called upon, however our server was either inexperienced or not on her game. Poor quality ingredients and forgettable meals made for an underwhelming dinner. Decent beer selection.

We went to the Wayside last night (Friday) to have dinner and to hear 2 fantastic musicians, Rob Tyre and Teri Cote. Arriving at our reservation time of 7:30, we were seated promptly. The place was already packed and it was obvious that everyone was really enjoying themselves, even though the music wasn't scheduled to start until 9:00PM. You could... More

By far, the best place (so far) in Mt Shasta. Had lunch and enjoyed the experience from the moment we walked in. Fast, friendly service. Clean. Casual atmosphere. Varied, but not overwhelming, menu. Fish & chips were delicious. Tasty cod, lightly battered. The garlic fries are terrific. Fresh garlic shaved atop the fries so not overpowering and easy to discard... More
