Inside it’s got a definite decor of olde – but I suppose with someplace that has this much history – it’s to be expected. I didn’t love the decor but I was there to eat the food – not the chairs.
Here’s the history of the Inn and if you’re a history buff at all – it’s going to make you want to visit that much more!
We started off with jalapeno poppers and a raspberry dip. My husband has never ordered these before – but we went for it! I loved them – they were zippy but not really spicy – and super hot (temperature). I really enjoyed the raspberry sauce but my husband liked them plain.
We sort of could hear from the kitchen a bit and apparently it’s under new ownership and has a new chef – so far so good.
Larry and I each ordered the Surf & Turf special of a ribeye with grilled shrimp, baked potato and grilled asparagus. The baked potato was delicious and I devoured it. The asparagus was also great – my husband isn’t a big fan but it was there and he killed it. The chef likes garlic – a lot – just fyi – if you’re adverse – but I’m not so I was good with it.
We both got our ribeyes medium rare (of course) and were looking forward to the steak. The shrimp were grilled perfectly and again – garlic-filled!
The steak was cooked perfectly as were the shrimp and we loved it! The ribeye was a bit fatty – but that’s what ribeye is (as opposed to NY Strip).
All in all we really enjoyed our dinner – the service was great – very attentive and friendly. The food all tasted great (there were rolls too) – and we were full and happy. I would definitely recommend the Olde Wayside Inn and they serve breakfast and lunch – which I’m sure are also great!
Here’s a historical plaque from out front – if you want more of the story.
Why Should You Go? There’s really not much for restaurants in Adams County – so if you want a real sit down dinner – this is one of the few spots for you to go. And – it’s just a block from Blake’s Pharmacy!
