I have enjoyed more than one hundred meals here, over fifty years of experiencing the location, service and flavor of traditional New England meals done superbly well. You will not go away hungry, and each dinner starts with cheese and crackers, fresh baked warm rolls and muffins, and continues with the entrée. Thy the wonderful Lobster Pie, and finish with...

Our friends took us here for our 50th anniversary. We hadn't been there in over thirty years and had forgotten how nice it was. Two of us had the turkey dinner, one had the pot roast off the Sunday specials and one had chicken off the regular menu. All of the food tasted great and was nicely prepared and served.... More

We had Sunday Reservations for a post Valentine's Day dinner. We were treated very nicely by everyone we met from the bartender in their snug by an open fire bar right through our dessert. Our appetizers were perfect (French onion soup and bacon wrapped scallops); our meals were very good as well. Dessert was delicious. Everything about our experience was... More

Attended a small birthday party. A private room with fireplace was available for our group, with dedicated wait staff. The selections were tasty, well prepared and served, and the cake was delicious. Prices were more than fair, given the historic location and the service.

Great amibence and atmoshpere. Colonial dining. We have lived in the Sudbury area for many years, and wanted to spend a night at the Inn with dinner and continental breakfask. The service was great, and a very relaxing time. Would do this again!

This Inn is located in the country on an almost desolate road. It must be beautiful in the Spring when the trees have leaves and the flowers are blooming. We were seated in the largest dining room next to a roaring wood fire for lunch, so nice. The waiter arrived quickly and we ordered drinks. Three of us ordered the... More

My brothers, mother, uncle, aunt and I ate lunch in the main dining area of the Wayside Inn. We all felt that this was a great dining experience. The pricing for lunch in this historic setting was reasonable. The sandwiches range from $10-$15. The meals range from $15-$20. My crusted salmon with fresh green beans at $15.95 was delicious. Everyone... More

I use any opportunity to introduce out of town visitors to the Wayside Inn. There are many good dining choices in the region but there is only one historic Wayside Inn experience. Food is very good; service is excellent; and the experience is memorable and one-of-a-kind. We requested one of the smaller rooms and were seated by a nice warm... More

My family & I started out the New Year with an amazing birthday lunch. Our reservations were absolutely perfect! We had a table right beside a comfy cozy fireplace which made our dining experience extra special. There's nothing more extraordinary than celebrating a birthday at a historic country inn. And the Wayside fits the bill! Nice the inn still had... More

Longfellow's Wayside Inn is a unique part of the historic landscape of Massachusetts. Featuring an authentic building style and traditional New England food, we offer the ideal location for romantic nights out, banquets, family events, company parties, and weddings. Our menu provides exceptional quality at great value, including hearty portions and seasonal foods. We encourage our guests to spend a day with us, touring the serene and historic grounds, enjoying a drink in our 300-year old Tavern, and settling in for dinner in one of our historic rooms. We have an open patio in the warmer months, and lit fireplaces through winter.
