About the Venue
It's not to say that Wayside Bar and Grill has been in existence since the beginning of time; however, the Wayside has been a stopping place for a very long time. In the 20's, it was Known as Ray’s Resort they rented cabins , sold gas and groceries in addition to having a bar. The beach known as Ray's Beach was accessible right across the road. While access was challenging, Ray's Beach remained a popular spot over the years. Recently, the township of Lafayette made many improvements to the beach including making it handicap accessible and adding toilets and a dock. The area has been kept much cleaner then in years gone by with the addition of waste bins which gives visitors a feeling of 'responsibility' for keeping it looking nice. Today, you can dock your boat at Rays Beach and walk directly across the street to the Wayside.
