Outstanding food. Outstanding service. First-rate and by far my favorite restaurant in all of Virginia. And the oysters just keep getting bigger and better!

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 ate outside on the porch under a heater and it was great. The service was fantastic and the food was excellent too. We ate there based on the great reviews and couldn’t agree more.

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.

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!
