Celebrated our 42d Anniversary with two of our closest friends. We were seated in the small, semi-private dining room. Terry was our server, but Howard, Louise, Christy, and Eric all took care of us and treated us with the greatest of kindness, care, and friendship. The food, as always, was outstanding. We all selected a different one of the specials of the day and we all thoroughly enjoyed them. Thanks Waypoint for a great, special evening!

We have been coming to Williamsburg for 35 years. This is our new favorite restaurant. Howard Saunders and the rest of the staff are outstanding. The food is fresh and innovative while staying loyal to local roots.

Special brunch menu was creative and offered something for everyone. Food and service were excellent! Often on special occasions things are hurried at restaurants. We never felt rushed at all. Lovely Mother’s Day brunch made special!

We ate on the patio which is enclose and has a ceiling heater. It happened to be chilly that day but the heater worked well. Our server, Terri, was just excellent. She knew when to interrupt and when to pull back as my friend and I were having a serious conversation. The food was delicious as always!

I liked the parking lot that was spacious and accessible. I liked the seating arrangement sitting by a large window that created great lighting. The time it took to order and then eat was efficient, orderly and smooth. Everyone seemed to work as a team that worked so well together. It was our anniversary and I enjoyed every minute of it thanks guys. A job well done.

Waypoint is a favorite go to for a pleasure or business. This week it was business. The clients appreciated the restaurant choice. The food was exceptional. From the lunch specials to the crab cake and fried oysters - we loved it all.

This was our second visit to Waypoint, the 1st being 2 years ago while visiting the area. It is easily our favorite restaurant! Every dish is expertly and beautifully prepared and leaves us wishing we had room for more. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and Allyson was especially patient and answered all of our questions about the menu. Each delicious bite was worth every penny and we plan to stop by every time we are in Williamsburg!

Allison our server was top notch & from start to finish made a special birthday celebration lunch a great experience. The calamari was fresh & delicious, our omelettes eggscellent & the schnitzel tasty & tender. We ate on the patio so the ambiance was just ok, but that was our choice. We had an excellent lunch & wonderful overall experience.

We had an excellent experience at Waypoint. Our server was charming and helpful in describing the menu choices. My husband ordered crab cakes, and they were far and away superior to any we had at other restaurants in the Williamsburg area. My catch of the day was fish with crabmeat, perfectly prepared, and plated beautifully. It was altogether a superior dining experience.

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.

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.

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.
