This place is tucked out of the way near Harris Teeter in the 'Burg. Very nice decor although I am not a big fan of bench seats so the Hostess gave us a nice table on the floor with very large, comfortable chairs. We were there between meals meaning a late lunch, 2ish. So we were given the light fare... More

I am not a fan of salt. I have probably been there 5 times and it was quite salty. The food quality is there. Service is good.

This is a terrific restaurant. It is pricey but you get what you pay for. We have never had a bad meal here. The wine list is impressive, too.

Went to the Waypoint on a recent Tuesday night with my wife. We wanted to have a drink at the bar before dinner, as in previous visits we have never done this. - and found a couple of seats available.

Had oysters for a starter- best I have ever had; then, Williamsburg Crab Cakes. Will never again think that Maryland Crab cakes are the best. Loved the presentation and the wonderful meal. Love this place. Worth a trip to WB.

Food at Waypoint is excellent w/seafood as a star. In the fall the Octoberfest specials can't be beat. Winter also brings quality lamb, & game. This restaurant never fails to please.

Without fail, the staff here makes us feel right at home and serves up the best food in town! Our favorite server Eric took excellent care of us as he always does. Professional and friendly, he excels at his job. Today my wife had her favorite, the Market Salad with Salmon and I tried the Pork Emmince--delicious on both counts.... More
