    My FIRST Po Boy sandwich ever was among the best ever. Service was amazing, the ambience was perfect and I left relaxed and satisfied (the vodka martini helped). Definitely will be back.

    From the moment we walked in, we were very favorably impressed. The staff was courteous, professional, and did their jobs with smiles and enthusiasm. The food was absolutely outstanding. And the service was even better. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and can’t wait to go back.

    We were celebrating Mom’s 84th birthday. We wanted a special dinning experience for Mom and that is what we got. Everything was great; the food, the service (Andy was delightful! Truly made our evening over the top, fun!), the atmosphere, everything! We were very happy all Waypoint Seafood & Grill provided.

    Went to Waypoint for business staff meeting, and ordered off Prix Fixe menu. Plenty of choices and with a party of 7, everyone had their choice of food and enjoyed the options. Nice to have a close place to gather, and handle business while eating a good meal and conversing together.

    Delicious meal, excellent service, it was exactly what we were looking for. We were seated in a quieter more roomy section but I could the tables directly behind the bar being a bit noisy and cramped. Our server was great and pointed us in the perfect direction of his favorites on the menu which did not disappoint. Would definitely recommend for a nice dinner while visiting the Williamsburg area. My only complaint was the beer selection was very lacking and I wish they had a couple mocktail options.

    The food was amazing for a limited Valentine's Day Menu. I would have liked the full menu, however, I was not disappointed with the selection either. The Shrimp and Scallops appetizer, Filet Mignon with Crab Meat and Salted Caramel Pistachio Bread Pudding were amazing and cooked to perfection!

    Honestly, we were disappointed. My date gave me a piece of the steak entree she ordered; it was tough and over cooked. Likewise my lobster was over cooked. Neither of us was impressed with the ice cream we ordered for dessert. On a positive note, our entrees were very good. She ordered the shrimp and scallops and I got the steak tartare.

    My wife and I ordered the Chilean Sea bass which was over cooked. The accompanying pasta was undercooked even for al dente. Given the prices for the meal, pre-fix Valentine’s Day, they could do better. The server must have been new but very nice. She forgot to use a saucer with the coffee which spilled when placing it on the table and forgot to include a spoon. Also did not bring utensils with dessert. As an aside, I received a call 5 minutes after leaving from the restaurant asking me if I will be dining there tonight. I suppose the hostess didn’t check off our reservation. Probably not going back for a while.

    Valentine’s dinner menu was limited and we were unaware that the regular menu was unavailable for this evening. The 3 course dinner was 110.00 per person ( did not know until arrived) drinks were expensive and ambience was lacking. 20% tip added and 10% restaurant tax. We payed $80.00 for tip and tax. We have enjoyed Waypoint in the past, however, feel as if the customer was taken advantage of for this occasion.

    My wife and I recently dined at this establishment, where we started our meal with the She Crab Soup and Cioppino, both of which were exceptional. For the majority of our dining experience, the service met our expectations with accurate orders and timely delivery of our food. However, the service deteriorated significantly towards the end of our meal. After ordering French Press coffee to conclude our dining experience, we were left waiting for over 15 minutes, only to be abruptly presented with our check by our server, who was hurriedly attending to another table, without any sign of our coffee. Notably, the coffee we never received was omitted from the bill. Our server became elusive for the next 20 minutes, leaving us unable to inquire about our order. We eventually managed to get their attention, expressed our dissatisfaction, and proceeded to pay. In response to our feedback, the manager approached us with the receipt, acknowledged our disappointment, and attempted to compensate by offering a complimentary dessert, which we declined. It is worth noting that throughout our visit, interaction was limited exclusively to our server, with no other staff members checking in on us. This lapse in service at the conclusion of our meal marred an otherwise enjoyable dining experience, underscoring a need for improved attentiveness and customer engagement from the staff.

    Food was good, but service was slow and at times our waitress just seemed to disappear! We had to wait an unusually long time to get drinks, soup, and then the main meal. We sat in the bar are - a bit noisy for those of us who wear hearing aids. If noise bothers you, ask to sit in other rooms. This restaurant would not be on my must go again list.

    I went for Sunday brunch. Service was outstanding, and food was good. I ordered chicken and waffles, and my husband ordered a Reuben. My food was okay, and my husband said his was delicious. Ordered the cranberry mimosa; it left a lot to be desired. The she crab soup didn’t live up to the hype. It was just okay; I wouldn’t order it again. My husband had the potato and truffle soup and said it was outstanding. Will try the restaurant again but during dinner.

    The server was great, however the food came out cold and the amount of food was not worth it. My GF added shrimp to Her fish and chips meal and got 6 baby shrimp for $11 and the flounder appears to have came out of a box. Not happy with the quality or quantity of food. Probably will not return

We will ask for her next time we dine at Waypoint. The food was quite tasty. We appreciated the variety of food selections offered. So good!

    The soup, both she crab and potato, mushroom, and spinach, were great. The scallops were OK, not as firm as I like. My husband's trout was very good. But, why ask about a special occasion, told it is a birthday (2X) and then do nothing about it? Not cool

    My husband had the scallops as his entre and they were really wonderful. Also ample portion actually more than ample. I had the filet mignon and it had a wonderful sauce. Potatoes were fluffy and light and very flavorful. Callamari was our first course and again more than ample we shared it and had more than enough. This restaurant is back on track and is a wonderful experience!

    Very mediocre food, which was very surprising given how much they charge for it! The crab cake was light on crab and heavy on breadcrumbs. The fish was ok, nothing special. The best item on our plates was the vegetables. The ambience was nice and quiet but not worth paying to eat there.

    We really had a nice brunch. We had an early reservation and were sat promptly. David (our server) was attentive and knowledgeable. The atmosphere and decor are beautiful and tasteful. We had raw oysters and the deviled eggs with crabmeat. The oysters were great. The deviled eggs were pretty good. The She Crab soup was amazing. I want to drive back to get more. The table had waffles, an omelet, eggs Benedict and shrimp and grits. The table enjoyed the meals. The omelet seemed a little dry, the potatoes with the eggs Benedict were oily and not crisp, but had good flavor. The shrimp and grits was good and well enjoyed. The Benedict was good, but not remarkable. Overall, nice but slightly pricey brunch. I would go back for dinner soon as it was clear the restaurant was well run with management visible and engaging with guests.

    We dined here New Year’s Eve and the menu was pre fix 3 course. The choices for each course were varied and lovely. Our meals were excellent, the service attentive and although it was crowded there was no wait on our reservation and the ambiance was great. It was New Year’s Eve so dinner was a bit pricy but well worth it
