Waypoint Seafood & Grill was "on point" again! Efficient, friendly service is a hallmark in this restaurant. The chef's "Oktoberfest" menu brought back happy memories of our time living in Germany. Loved the spicy Gulasch soup, Wiener Schnitzel & Spaetzle, & Apple Strudel for dessert.

Every year, not only do I die of anticipation for the incredible Oktoberfest experience at Waypoint, but I adore bringing my friends from Richmond to experience this fantastic culinary feast! The only thing better than the reactions of people who have never had a Waypoint meal prior (watching as they sink their teeth into the incredible Tour of Bavaria platter, so rich with its delectable sauces and lush flavors, witnessing the instant physical uplift) is the amazing, seasonal cuisine itself.

A great evening. They do a German menu to honor Oktoberfest each year. The food was excellent, as good as any I have had in Germany.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Waypoint Seafood & Grill. My wife ordered the Salmon over farro. The salmon was perfectly cooked. I ordered the Octoberfest Wiener Schnitzel with spaetzle and shredded beets which was delicious. We shared a special pumpkin cake which was divine. Our server, Eric was very friendly and efficient. Al in all a great experience. We are looking forward to our next visit.

The oysters on the half shell were OUTSTANDING. The nightly special was just ok ... too salty. The grits and seafood was good but a bit undercooked. Our waitress was super good.

This was our first time at Way[point but will certainly not be the last. We went for our anniversary this past weekend and it was fabulous. Great food (we ordered from the special Oktoberfest menu) and the service was excellent. Looking forward to coming back next time we're in town.

We went with the intention of ordering great seafood but changed plans once we saw the Oktoberfest offerings. There were no disappointments here. The German food was absolutely authentic and tasted just like my grandmother’s traditional cooking. The veal served in the Weiner Schnitzel was so tender and was able to be cut without a sharp. The combination platter was delicious and allowed to sample several traditional German items. Haven’t had Black Forest Cake for many years and it did not disappoint.

The food was wonderful-The flounder special was great, and the emphasis on an Octoberfest menu was really tempting -so many great dishes-it was hard to choose. I had the veal and it was delicious. And sort of unexpectedly , the fried Oyster starter that we split was excellent! Spacing was perfect and we felt totally safe. Important!!
We will be back!

We ate "outside." Food was great. I had fried oysters and the shrimp/scallop dish. Service was great. Lunch conversation was very impeded by random loud noises from construction going on next door at the UPS (?) building. One person dining at Waypoint talked to the electrician who was working on that building and said he apologized, saying he had only one access point to do the work.
My point: THIS WAS NOT WAYPOINT'S FAULT.
But I think anyone going there in the near future should know this. I WOULD STILL GO BACK. I post this because I want people to know and I don't want Waypoint to be penalized for something that is out of their control. Hopefully, the nearby construction will soon be finished.

The hostess was great on the phone and sat us in a place that was requested. The waitstaff was very knowledgeable and helpful...right ion Point. Maybe I was off that night but did not care that much for the main meal. Wife was just the opposite. She enjoyed this meal. This was our second time dining there, and I enjoyed it then but my wife didn’t have a good meal. I understand the restaurant has great ratings we might be the exception.

Very professional wait staff. Food was delivered in an unhurried way and drinks were promptly refilled. WayPoint Way oysters were outstanding and salmon cooked perfectly. Really, the only thing to critique was an overdressed salad.

Waypoint is one of the best restaurants in Williamsburg and are doing a great job serving the community during the pandemic. Thanks!

Sometimes our waitperson would disappear-it seems she was responsible for patio customers also; I think 1 more waitperson on staff would have been helpful.
