Only reason this isn’t a straight 5 stars is the portions are small. Food quality is the among the best in the area. The schnitzel is always delicious, and the specials are always tempting.

Very nice place to go for dinner. Interesting menu, good cocktails and good service. Oyster special was a great starter. We had the Shnitzel and the Shrimp/Scallops for dinner. Very nice inside too.

2 veal and 1 salmon entree were perfectly prepared and served warm, second salmon entree was cold! Plate was reheated, but then fish was too dry. Otherwise everything else was top drawer. Delicious bread basket. Server removed the cold salmon entree from the bill. We will still return in the future as this was our first visit.

The midweek special was an excellent value. It should be extended or maybe offered as an early bird special.

Waypoint needs to change it's menu. They have had the same menu for ages. Always have to ask for bread with a meal. I counted 5 pecans on my salad. Portion of salmon was skimpy. My friend's sandwich was OK. A little disappointing this time around.

Have dined at Way Point several times during last 12 months. Today’s experience was not as good. Longer waiting times between courses. Steak not prime beef-too much grizzle. Preparation of rockfish was not as tasty as seafood dishes I have had there in the past. Market salad and snickers dessert were very good

The Easter Brunch was absolutely outstanding in every regard - the food, the wine, and bets of all the service! The Crab stuffed Eggs Benedict was to die for, exceptionally well done! The Strawberry Shortcake was the perfect topper. The servers and the management were extremely attentive. They were warm, friendly, and always make dinning at Waypoint like dinning with family! Great meal....see you again soon!

So glad to see this wonderful place surviving these trying times. The food was excellent as ever, esp the amazing Snickers torte fir Easter, and the staff are welcoming and highly professional. Favorite place in Williamsburg area and well worth the cost and effort to go out to.

We had the nicest waiter - wish I had gotten his name. He gave us a sample of each house chardonnay to check and make sure we liked the one we chose, and he was there at just the right times to provide the service we needed.

The food was fantastic!
