Waypoint is a great restaurant. The food is OUTSTANDING. There service is great - the servers are even better. Been going there since it opened. Never a bad meal. Always a good evening. The entire environment is calm, relaxing, and unforgetable.

Luis, our waiter, was excellent and made this entire occasion all the more enjoyable. The food and wine were perfect. The chef obviously loves what he does including a terrific ham relish served with homemade bread; considered a 'throw away" course for so many establishments but a great indicator of things to come. Thank you Waypoint!

Waypoint is our favorite seafood restaurant in "the 'burg." We are repeat customers and have the food and service here to always be outstanding. Banquet B, our friendly server, tended to our every need this time. We look forward to dining here again when we are back in town.

We sat at a high top in the bar area and enjoyed talking with our favorite bar tender, Natalie! We were the only guests in the bar due although there were other high tops available. We had cocktails and appetizers. The Hendricks & Hibiscus martini's were signature Natalie - awesome! The watermelon peach salad was delicious and the vegetable spring rolls were very good.

Very delicious food, very creative and beautiful presentation. The decor and seating was very relaxing.
Service was excellent and when we return to the area this will be a must revisit! Even though this restaurant is in a strip mall, it is very unassuming and we really enjoyed this spot. Highly recommend.

Me and my husband went to Williamsburg for a little 37th Anniversary getaway. We went to Waypoint Seafood and Grill for dinner and Eric was a fantastic waiter. He knew everything we asked and more. All of his recommendations were outstanding.

Great food and service service with terrific locally sourced ingredients
We dinned outdoors on the small covered patio which is part of the restaurant
(not temporary tables on asphalt like some restaurants). The restaurant's Covid-19 precautions make it feel very safe even if you dine indoors.

My husband and I had the best dining experience we’ve ever had at Waypoint. The waitstaff was extremely attentive and the food was incredible, but what separates this restaurant from others is their amazing manager, Howard. He makes you feel like a you’re the only person in the restaurant. It was truly a privilege to meet him and enjoy his company as filled out water glasses and made wonderful recommendations. We’ll go back just to see him!

Amazing! My lunch at Waypoint was delicious. I enjoyed the baked oysters with spinach, cheese and ham as an appetizer. Then I had the wonderful crab cake. It was cooked perfectly as where the vegetables served with it. Nice menu of wines by glass, too. Next time that I am back in Williamsburg, the Waypoint will be my first stop!

The Waypoint is hands down one of our top three favorite restaurants in Williamsburg, and that’s saying a lot given the number of great chef-owned restaurants here. The menu is so thoughtful, the food consistently excellent, and the staff superb. The general manager, Howard, is fantastic. We highly, highly recommend Waypoint!

This was our first time dining here. The restaurant is small, but really attractive.
Our server Teri was very attentive. My husband had the wiener schnitzel that was melt in your mouth. Adding spaetzel would have made it perfect. I had the shrimp/scallops pappardelle that was very good.

Almost unfair to review something during pandemic, but after visiting different restaurants over a week in Williamsburg, this was by far our favorite and will go back.....the service was great and we have eaten at a lot of great restaurants over the years.....found the menu. A little limited and pricey but know that restaurants are struggling these days. Wine by the glass was limited but excellent choices.....VERY relaxing and we had a lovely evening!
