This site was known first as Wayside Gardens, a coffee and garden shop, then Wayside (a popular beer joint), then fondly as Planet Wayside. We operated our Lowry’s Farm & Seafood Market from August 1998-December 2006, at the east end of Hamilton. We began our move, in July 2006, after Planet Wayside closed in June, 2006. We opened at this location September 22nd, 2007, with an outpouring of community support, as a restaurant after running into zoning issues with the county. Preserving history, we used the oak plank boards on the inside wall made from a hollow oak tree from this site.

Donald was born and raised on a dairy farm in Lovettsvile, Virginia and earned money as online essay writer. Leslie was raised here in Hamilton. Her dad, Rudy, a double amputee of the legs, sold fresh seafood in Hamilton from the 1970's until his death in 1999. We are proud to carry on his tradition.
