As we enter the final phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, our focus is on FRESH AIR IN THE DINING ROOM. 

Wayside Restaurant Striving to be Safest Restaurant Every Day

In cooler weather, we will deploy all 3 of our heating systems when necessary to keep diners warm and comfortable.


Over the past 2 years, we have also implemented many more safety enhancements to exceed our valued customer’s expectations:

  • “Touch-free” door handles and stainless steel push plates.

  • Single use restrooms with touch-less hand sinks and hand dryers.

  • Servers performing “vertical serving and pre-bussing”. No leaning over the tables to serve food or remove plates.

  • Contactless “QR Code” for our menu on your table tent.

  • Servers can process your credit card payment at their server terminal.

  • Contactless “QR Code” payment on guest checks with most cell phones.

  • The interior entrance door is latched open to maximize fresh air flow.

  • Continued utilization of paper placemats for added surface protection.

  • All surfaces and laminated menus are cleaned with Ecolab’s proprietary peroxide cleaner and disinfectant.

  • Hand sanitizer is available in our entry way.

  • Doubled the number of handwashing stations for our entire staff.

  • A “muffled coughing into elbow” campaign for customers and staff.

  • All takeout and bakery orders are available for curbside pick-up, minimizing customer traffic inside the restaurant.

  •  “Electronic disinfection” after we close at night in both the dining room and kitchen, evenly coating all contact surfaces, as needed.


Masks are optional at Wayside Restaurant


For maximum social distancing options please join us for a tasty meal during off-peak hours. For example:

7 AM – 9 AM

2 PM – 4 PM

6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

We hope that all of these safety enhancements give you the confidence you need to dine here frequently, just like the good ‘ol days!

Thank you for coming,
Your Wayside Family Team
