This place was amazing. I went here with my wife for our 10 year anniversary and it was awesome. Highly recommended this place, well worth the money spent.

I was super concerned this was a tourist trap. Ambiance would be cool but food would just be ok. I was wrong. Everything was fantastic! Highly recommend going.

$44 for French Toast? The Easter menu offered French toast as an entree. That's absurd given the fixed price of $44 for the meal (which included appetizer and dessert.
Seems like a rip-off.

Very nice restaurant with excellent food but limited menu, particularly for non-seafood. Staff was very courteous and attentive. Pleasant atmosphere without any sense of being rushed. Fairly expensive, so would go only occasionally.

Waitress was very nice and very attentive. Food was delicious and the wait staff surprised us with a wonderful dessert to commemorate my wife’s birthday. It was also great to see Howard S who we had not seen in many years. In all respects it was a wonderful evening to mark my wife’s birthday. Will be back long before my wife is ready to celebrate another birthday. John Murphy

We frequently visit Williamsburg on our way home from Florida. For all the beauty and charm of Williamsburg, there are few good restaurants—- Waypoint Seafood & Grill has been added to our list!. The food and service were excellent. For a lovely dining experience, I highly recommend Waypoint. The rock fish and oysters were👍🏼

Two of us had lunch on a Tuesday. One of us had the chicken pot pie, which had a very flavorful puff pastry, with excellent tasting filling full of tender chicken and vegetables. Diner has had the pot pie before with consistently excellent results. The other diner had the beef and barley soup of the day and salad. Again, all tasted flavorful and fresh. Service was cheerful and efficient. An excellent lunch.

We would drive to Williamsburg just to eat here again. I had not had Sheepshead fish since living on the west coast. This was prepared with all the right elements. Drinks were outstanding. And I am picky. The wine was picked by the staff and couldn't have been better. Did I tell you I am picky? Then they mentioned homemade run raisin ice cream. We caved and enjoyed every mouthful. And oh yeah, I am picky.

I liked the overall look of the restaurant, however I feel it was trying to distract me from the bland food. The food was flavorless and expensive for such small portions. My girlfriend's filled chicken didn't have any seasoning, it was a good size, but only 15% of the actual chicken was stuffed. My steak had the same texture as roast beef and had also didnt have seasoning. It was only the size of a baseball which was very little for the price, especially with how low the livestock prices are right now. I don't plan on going back, will not go back, and won't recommend it to anyone. There was a sign near the door that said, "Top restaurant of the year in the nation".....NOT

Everything was great. Had Faroe Islands Salmon and it was delicious. Reminded me of being in the Faroes. Service was very professional and not obstructive. Just a note on the survey; the noise level question is a bit confusing. The noise level at Waypoint was not an issue; but not sure how to rate that on the survy...
