Food is always excellent. Eric R our waiter can always be depended on for excellent service.
We were treated warmly by our hostess and our server. While we hoped for several fish choices beyond the mundane mahi mahi , salmon, rock fish and flounder, we were quite pleased with the preparation and presentation of the salmon and the mahi special.
The wine list was impressive. We splurged on an expensive bottle of Ramey Chardonnay and were not not disappointed!
Our server was extremely pleasant and attentive, even on a busy Thursday evening. Upscale clientele.
Williamsburg lacks great restaurants overall, but Waypoint sets the bar pretty high. I would recommend it for romantic dinners, business meals, and good friends.
Amazing! The food was delicious - we had seafood “chowder” and Weiner schnitzel with purple cabbage. Both were so special and perfectly prepared. We had a wonderful server, Maria, who was friendly and professional! Thank you for a wonderful dinner!!
Always a great meal. We normally go exclusively for the the seafood but this trip could not resist the Octoberfest offerings, outstandingly German food.
We took a guest to Wayfare on October 31. She had to ask for a steak knife to cut her Crab Melt. Even with the steak knife, she had to struggle with cutting the English mufflin. My Signature Crab was tasty, but coming as it did on top of vegetables, etc., my husband had no more than a bite of his Signature Crab. Although these type of conglomerates are "in style," they clearly aren't for everyone. The wait staff was excellent and the ambiance was pleasant. But I'm not encouraged to take a guest there anytime soon.
The food was very good, but not outstanding. I did not realize that there was an Oktoberfest menu when I made the reservation. It was a nice surprise which I took advantage of and enjoyed. The portions were adequate, but not generous.
Our server was very pleasant, although it seemed to take a while for her to take our order.
The back-lit menus were a very nice touch.
Since my husband and I ate at Waypoint twice while we were in Williamsburg, I will use this as my opportunity to sing its praises for both dates. I can’t say enough about this restaurant...the food is absolutely wonderful but the whole experience is exceptional thanks to a cohesive team of people who work there. One is made to feel like family! Howard, the manager, sets the tone with warmth and friendliness, pitching in with the servers to keep customers not wanting for anything. Our servers Teri and Maria were so attentive, knowledgeable and welcoming. And the FOOD!!!! Try the Oysters Waypoint Way, the weiner schnitzel, the steak, the salmon....any special, any dessert....you won’t be sorry. We can’t wait until our next time in Williamsburg so we can see what other goodies are being served!!!
This was our first time at the restaurant. We will definitely be back. They were having their Oktoberfest month so my husband had a traditional German meal and I opted for crab cakes. Both were excellent. Our server was great too.
Our server, although attentive, didnt tell us about the specials. We ordered the Weinerschnitzel. The plate was very hot, the food was not. Not much taste. Disappointing.
My wife and I had an anniversary lunch last Saturday. Jordan took great care of us. He was able to make useful suggestions and made my luncheon order something special.
We had not been to Waypoint for a while, but are ready to go back!
I highly recommend this spot for a wonderful meal.
They treated us very well thought our anniversary the manager the waiter specially the waiter he was really cool the atmosphere was fantastic you will see us again one day
A must to eat at while in Williamsburg, VA. This is an outstanding restaurant. Great menu and excellent wine selection. Shrimp and grits, oysters, and local catch of day highly recommended. The staff is professional and friendly. The restaurant manager, Howard Saunders provides special attention and our server Eric was tremendous with exemplary service.
We had an excellent time.
service and food was great!!!
The Octoberfest menu was fantastic. Great German dishes and great beer.
We had a gift card and last year we tried to get in but was booked solid for the month of October. We usually go for Oktoberfest as the German food is what I crave and this place has great German food for this month only. The Sourbraten was out of this world and my wife had the schnitzel which she raved over it. We eat here every once in a while as there are other places we enjoy but Oktoberfest at Waypoint is special.
As always the food was outstanding, from appetizer to dessert. Our waitress Terri was knowledgeable about the menu, attentive, and friendly. Our meal was an excellent experience. Highly recomended!
The food was excellent-I had oysters on the half shell and the shellfish and grits, and my husband had tomato, crab and jalapeño soup and the pork tenderloin special-everything was wonderful-and our server, Jordan, also was great. Don’t overlook this place because it’s in a shopping center-this is an upscale restaurant with a lovely atmosphere and great food!
In our opinion this is the best restaurant in Williamsburg! The food was superb, and I mean the halibut was one of the best I’ve ever had and I spent years in Seattle eating amazing seafood. My wife is a vegetarian and the chef made a spectacular vegetarian pasta that she loved. To top it off, our servers Jody and John were attentive but not overly so., and helped make our anniversary special. Love this restaurant!!!
Great meal and service. Always a superb meal eating there. Enjoyed very much
salmon was wonderful...great food, friend, wine.
would definitely go again
We had a wonderful meal at Waypoint. My salmon was prepared perfectly and was, without a doubt, the best that I have ever had. Our experienced server was totally on the mark -- efficient and unobtrusive. Waypoint Seafood and Grill is highly recommended.
Waypoint Seafood and Grill always has local seafood, a great staff and reasonable prices. A restaurant worth the drive.
Could not have been more enjoyable. Accommodating from beginning to end regarding inclusion or not to entrees, wines or sides. Jody is the best wait/server encountered in many years. Delightful conversation, knowledge of wines, menu and recepie ingredients, plus area information. Have always enjoyed visits before, but lunch was outstanding all around.
One of the very top restaurants in Williamsburg. Halibut outstanding. Christine best waitress ever. Howard is a Gem.
Wonderfully attentive staff, quiet enough for a good visit and a terrific lunch.
Can not say enough about the quality of the food and the excellence of the service. One of Williamsburg's very best.
They consistently have delicious food and outstanding service. Waypoint is our neighborhood restaurant and we are so lucky to have such a wonderful one. The service is attentive without being in the way of your privacy. Their roasted tomato, crab and jalapeño bisque is a great way to start a meal, not too hot. The shellfish and grits is one of my favorites and, without a doubt, they have the best soft-shell crabs in town! I have been there with 2 people or twenty and they never disappoint.
Food was great. Server and owner were awesome. Waypoint oysters are a must.
Staff very friendly and helpful. High quality food.
The best don’t miss this place! Varied menu with terrific seafood! Tommy Leggett oysters, amazing local variety that are delicious! Each of the servers are outstanding, ask for Rachel or Eric!
Excellent. Creative cuisine. Delivery of entree was a bit slow but we didn’t mind.
Interesting dining room design, excellent service and fantastically delicious seafood! As an oyster lover, the oysters starter with fried onion rings is "out of this world!"
The restaurant was nice, our first time there. Service was excellent. My one complaint was the catch of the day white fish used in the sesame dish was almost flavorless. I don't recall the type of fish used, had never heard of it, but the taste was basically just a ginger sesame soy sauce. We were told the fish had a sweet flavor similar to crab or lobster. If so, I didn't taste it. My wife said the same thing about hers. We decided to try it based on the server's recommendation. The presentation was nice, but that was a lot of money to spend for flavorless fish. If we go back, I'll be ordering something else off the menu.
The food, service and ambiance could not have been nicer. We will be back often.
Met up with friends for dinner in Williamsburg (all from out of the area meeting for an event in the area) and just picked a restaurant "out of a (OpenTable) hat" - WHAT A MARVELOUS FIND! Excellent menu/food, service - it was an old-fashioned, service as a career done with professional care experience. It was the perfect start to a wonderful weekend; next time we're in Williamsburg, we'll return. In the meantime, we'll recommend this to those headed there.
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent, Excellent, Excellent
We have dined at Waypoint several times while visiting the Williamsburg, VA area. It is clearly our favorite. The atmosphere is welcoming and the food is excellent. We almost always go with the seafood options but on our last visit had steaks and no surprise they were excellent as well. Christine is an absolutely lovely server and her smile and welcoming attitude make you feel like you are dining with your best friends. The chef goes beyond expectations and makes our son clams even if not on the menu when they have them available - no other restaurant does this! Don't forget the desserts they are wonderful.
Without a doubt, the BEST restaurant in Williamsburg!! Food is great and serving staff couldn’t be better!
This restaurant had a very nice environment--elegant, quiet, new, upscale. The food was very good, but being a "seafood" restaurant, we found the seafood variety and choices a bit diminutive. In fact, my pork tenderloin was excellent, something I did not expect at this restaurant. But overall a good experience.
My very elderly Mother in law had a wonderful time. She loves good food and wonderful service, we had both with this experience.
