Longfellow's Wayside Inn is a unique part of the historic landscape of Massachusetts, and the oldest operating American Inn. 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.
My significant other and I went to the Wayside Inn for a romantic dinner. The ambiance was completely unromantic, with harsh lighting and an unattractive room, and the food was poor.
On the positive side, when we told our waitperson that it was our anniversary, she gave us a complimentary dessert.
Overall, make sure that you reserve in one of the fireplace rooms, or just tour the lovely grounds.

In addition to bar-b-cue, you'll find many other Southern specialties on our menu including Cracklin' Bread, Fried Chicken, Red Beans 'n Rice, Sweet Potato Pecan Puddin' and more!

Fun place to go for great BBQ, friendly service, and even entertainment! Great selection of meats and sauces and sides; they serve everything from salads to pizza and everything in between! Southern offerings include po boys and fried pickles. Try one of the combo platters for a good sampling. Service is friendly and very good; server recommendations are always great.

We arrived at one o'clock and the restaurant was packed. Not a problem since we had a reservation. Wonderful selection of craft beer and a small but very good selection of wine for the non-beer drinker (me). My Robert Talbott Chardonnay was excellent and served cold, just the way I like it. We shared the Banh Mi-atballs appetizer which consisted of six really good size meatballs served with hoisin bbq sauce, sriracha aioli, pickled carrots, cilantro, cucumber and jalapeno. They were fantastic. Our second fantastic selection was the flatbread. We did half chicken, bacon, ranch and half steak and cheese. Wonderful choices. The restaurant has great atmosphere, a fun vibe, helpful, friendly wait staff and delicious food. We can't wait to return.

4 of us went to dinner last Saturday night. We were looking for an upscale suburban restaurant without going to Boston. The seafood is fresh, prepared perfectly and has a decent selection. Additionally, for apps. we shared fresh oysters and fried clams which tasted like I was sitting in Ipswich. There was also live music in the lounge

We've been twice and while the restaurant is small, the food is very fresh and outstanding. I had a Golden Tofu and Snow Peas dish as my main course, and it was just amazing. My wife had the eggplant and hers was equally good. Very friendly and a lot of take-out happening while we ate.

Was a little nervous going inside this Resturant because it didn't look like a typical restaurant, but we were very pleasantly surprised. The Resturant was bigger then is seems from the outside view, and everything was so super clean and organized!
When we arrive we were greeted by a very friendly staff who explained everything to us about their buffet and the types of meats they had. They answered all our questions (I'm a picky eater and usually have questions about types of foods and ingredients).
We enjoyed this experience and this type of food. if you are looking for a nice experience this is a Must try!

Featuring 30 Wood~Fired Specialty Pizzas. We serve the Best ingredients available. Ice Cold Beer and Wine. Eat In or Take Out. Our Fire Makes It Better.™
Decided to go on a random quest with a buddy to find a new pizza spot and ended up finding this place. Boy we're we glad we did! Had the BBQ divine and my favorite pizzas and these were some tasty combos. Very thin crust so I didn't get a ton of flavor from the dough but cooked well in there wood fired oven and the toppings were great! Talked to the owner a bit and he emphasized that he wanted to focus on good pizza vs a million menu options and this was pretty obvious. Well crafted pizza but there were plenty of other options also that I may go back and try again eventually. Some decent beer a selection too if that's up your alley it's worth a trip indeed!

Went to Longhouse specifically because the website reported they have a happy hour menu. When we got there they said that they don't. Okay - not great but we ordered. My associate ordered the short ribs over gnocchi and ended up sending it back and ordering a salad. I had the firecracker shrimp (nothing firecracker about it). Service was very good but food fell short.
