    What a waste—made the reservation and went their only to find that the place was closed! Called them and got a recording that they had been closed temporarily due to unforeseen events. Issue with Open Table is that, even though Google Maps showed the restaurant as temporarily closed, Open Table still offered reservations for that evening. Dumb

    This was my first time trying Waypoint—they were closed on the day of our reservations. I’ve heard they have a really good menu and good food..I wish I was able to try it. Upon arrival, there is a sign on the door saying they were closed until further notice. I wish they had updated their google/online hours to let people know.

    Our experience was that there was no experience. We traveled from out of town, for the holiday, and my birthday weekend. I made this reservation well in advance. When we got to the restaurant at 7 PM m, on a Friday, there was a sign in the window that they were closed. No effort was made to reach us.

    the best crab cakes that I ever have eaten and I have eaten quite a few. Every part of the meal was delicious and a little unusual take on the ordinary. Excellent drinks and service. I will be back.

    We had a pre-graduation lunch outside on the screened patio. The seafood oysters on the half shell were really fresh, and the crabcakes were the best I have had in years. The wine list was reasonably priced. Service was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. All great.

    Enjoyed my first venture here. Food and service were excellent. Waypoint oysters are a satisfying twist on Oysters Rockefeller and cooked to perfection. The three course specials are a great deal if you like what they have to offer (we did). The only negative was that entrees were slow coming to the table. Otherwise, a great evening.

    Waypoint is a gem located in the Harris Teeter shopping center away from the tourist areas. We were promptly greeted and seated on the patio. Terry was an extremely pleasant and capable server. She expertly timed our courses. We started with the Southern Sampler that included a mixture of enjoyable treats. Our entrees were salmon and crab cakes. The portions were generous and the presentation excellent. We topped it off with the snickers torte. We were thrilled to discover Waypoint on Open Table and will return!

    Not often we go to a restaurant and are totally satisfied in ever way. Service was the way it used to be in all the better restaurants. Food exceeded expectations in every course. A simple Caesar salad, which everyone does, was outstanding. Seafood was fresh and excellent. Atmosphere was very pleasant. Would recommend highly, but not for families with small children.

    Celebrated our 42d Anniversary with two of our closest friends. We were seated in the small, semi-private dining room. Terry was our server, but Howard, Louise, Christy, and Eric all took care of us and treated us with the greatest of kindness, care, and friendship. The food, as always, was outstanding. We all selected a different one of the specials of the day and we all thoroughly enjoyed them. Thanks Waypoint for a great, special evening!

    Simply impeccable service! And the food wasn't bad either! I ordered the Flounder and Clam "Chowder." which was a panko crusted flounder filet sitting on top of clams, sausage, potatoes, spinach and onions. Other than the filet being slightly over cooked, the meal was delicious and very creative. My wife ordered the shrimp, scallops, and clam capellini, which was served with a pesto pasta. The pasta was almost the star of the dish! For wine I ordered the Ken Wright Cellars Pinot Noir. At $55, it was a good deal!

    We ate on the patio which is enclose and has a ceiling heater. It happened to be chilly that day but the heater worked well. Our server, Terri, was just excellent. She knew when to interrupt and when to pull back as my friend and I were having a serious conversation. The food was delicious as always!

    I liked the parking lot that was spacious and accessible. I liked the seating arrangement sitting by a large window that created great lighting. The time it took to order and then eat was efficient, orderly and smooth. Everyone seemed to work as a team that worked so well together. It was our anniversary and I enjoyed every minute of it thanks guys. A job well done.
