    Brandon was our server and he was great! Food was delicious and the pace was perfect. I alerted the restaurant my husband is on crutches due to surgery and we needed a table to safely tuck the crutches away! They did a great job accommodating!

    Excellent experience…starting with menu choices. The quality of flavor of starters(Waypoint shrimp, Burrata salad), entrees(rack of lamb, crab cake) and dessert (butterfinger cheese cake) were all fantastic! Looking forward to our next experience!

    Once again an excellent experience from the shared shrimp cocktail appetizer to our shared chocolate mousse dessert and glass of port! In between my date had the crab cake and I had the pan seared scallops. We were both members of the “clean plate club.” Or waiter, Don, was very attentive. Could not ask for better, and we will be back.

    Absolutely awful food at buffet- horrible quality on Easter. The buffet was not communicated ahead of time. It was so expensive. I was embarrassed that I chose this for my family on a holiday and it cost so much money.

    Underwhelming Easter Brunch. Menu description was much better than reality. Food was bland and cold. I had such high hopes since this restaurant has a good reputation. Definitely not worth $200 for party of 2 with 20% gratuity included!

    I came to Way Point for Easter Brunch by myself since I am away from home for the military. The staff were very courteous and welcoming. I decided to sit at the bar since I was solo. Brandon was the bartender and he is AMAZING! Only later did I find out he was also a manager. He was very kind with great recommendations and allowed me to vent about being away from my family on Easter. Met the owner along with managers and other staff. It was a great time. It did get a bit warm inside but the second I mentioned being warm, one of the managers rushed to get the air on. This was apparently to the staffs delight as they were all grateful for some AC! Had a wonderful experience and many thanks to Brandon, Tina, and Chris for a phenomenal time! The buffet staff clearly put in a lot of work for todays event and I appreciate the amazing food they prepared! I will make it a point to stop by here whenever my travels bring me back to this area which I hope will be sooner than later!

    The She Crab Soup was nice, but it was served lukewarm; not hot enough. The oysters Rockefeller were over cooked and somewhat dried out. Oysters on the half shell were good; it's hard to screw them up. The special: speckled trout was great. Service was good. Located in a strip shopping center. Ambiance is MEH. It was okay, but nothing special. Would not go back.

    Delicious calamari and she crab soup appetizers. Decent but underwhelming seafood crepe--needed more seafood and a creamy sauce. Crab cake good but just one and overpriced. Playing noisy Motown music but our request for a change was accommodated. Still a good restaurant, recommended.

    My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Waypoint Seafood & Grill during our anniversary weekend in Williamsburg, and it turned out to be one of the many highlights of our trip. From the moment we walked in, we were promptly seated in a cozy and inviting atmosphere that struck the perfect balance between elegance and warmth. The restaurant offered a quiet and intimate setting that was just what we were hoping for. Our server, Don, truly elevated our dining experience. His attentiveness, friendly demeanor, and genuine kindness made us feel welcomed and cared for throughout the evening. Don's recommendations and insights were appreciated and contributed significantly to the overall enjoyment of our anniversary celebration. Every dish was spectacular, but a few stood out as true gems. The Cioppino was one of my personal favorites. The seafood was perfectly cooked and the broth rich. The Calamari was a delightful surprise, crispy and tender, paired with a zesty dipping sauce that added the perfect kick. And then there was the Bread Pudding Ice Cream, a heavenly conclusion to our meal. The delectable spread at Waypoint Seafood & Grill undoubtedly marked one of the best dinners we've had in Williamsburg. For anyone stopping by Williamsburg, Waypoint Seafood & Grill is an absolute must-go. Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or simply seeking a pleasant dining experience, this restaurant exceeds expectations in every aspect. Thank you to the entire team at Waypoint for making our anniversary celebration truly memorable.

    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.
