We planned to eat outside but even with propane heaters, it was too cold. Inside only restuarant personnel were wearing masks. We were seated in a corner well away from other diners at a late lunch. The food was amazing. The special of the day,...seafood stuffed mancotti was phenomenal. Rarely, can I eat a whole entree (even luncheon sized) but this was sooooo good that it was all gone before I realized it. My husbands fish and chips with fried flounder was less sucessful.....way too much breading on the fish and the house made chips were sitting in a pool of grease. The carmel creme brulee certainly made up for that. That said, we are looking forward to a return visit.More

Dinner at Waypoint was a wonderful experience! We have been there twice now over the last couple of years and both times the food has been delicious and the service is impeccable. Make sure to start with the Southern Sampler - the fried green tomatoes,...country ham, deviled eggs, and pimento cheese are quite tasty! And the oysters Waypoint Way do not disappoint!! The warm bread and corn muffins are served with samples of their wonderful ham relish and bread & butter pickles - you can even get these items to take home under their "Take a Little Home" portion of the menu! My husband had the crab cake, which he has not stopped talking about, and I ordered the salmon which was perfectly cooked. Our server, Ally, was personable and very knowledgeable in describing the items on the menu. If you are looking for a wonderful evening out with fantastic food, Waypoint is the perfect place to eat!More

Don't let the shopping center location (2 doors down from a Subway) fool you. Step through Waypoint's door and you immediately notice the quiet elegance inside. Nicely appointed, the menu is also excellent.... and difficult to choose from the many tempting sounding offerings. I finally...settled on the seared shrimp and scallops on a bed of Cheddar grits, seasoned greens and lobster nage. WOW! Well done plating and presentation. Even if you are not a grits fan, do not be afraid; these are quite good. An excellent focaccia with butter is also brought to the table. A dessert selection of the crème brulee was equally well prepared. The sweet tea was very fresh, nicely balanced and very good. Wait staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I think you would enjoy a visit to Waypoint Seafood and Grill. BTW, try to taste the Waypoint Virginia Ham Relish which is provided with bread at dinner (but you might ask about it at lunch!). They DO sell it by the pint -- it is THAT good!More

Had a great meal for Octoberfest, so good we came back the next day. To begin with Waypoint is doing as well as anyone else if not better with respect to making sure customers and staff are safe from COVID. Now to the meal, it...was well prepared and tasted great. Tried the wienerschnitzel and my wife had the sauerbraten, both were outstanding. We will definitely be back. Thanks to Waypoint for great food and doing the best to keep folks safe.More

Excellent service. Food was very good but a bit pricey. Second St Bistro food is excellent and a bit more affordable.

My wife and I went to the Waypoint Grill for the first time last night (29 Oct) to celebrate our 15th Anniversary. It was an excellent choice. I started out with some delicious Fried Oysters, my wife had the Squash soup. For entrees she had...the Bavarian Sampler; I had the shellfish and Grits, both dishes were perfectly cooked and succulent. For dessert we shared the Apple Strudel and a slice of Black Forest Cake. Everything we had was so incredibly good. The waiter Luis couldn't have been better, providing us with outstanding service.More

Food was extremely good and service was excellent! The potato pancake appetizer matches my family's homemade recipe in terms of the taste... something I have never been able to find at a restaurant! I ordered the crab cake meal and my husband has the Taste...of Bavaria sampler. We were both loved our meals. The was by far our favorite meal / restaurant for our vacation week in the area. And a bonus... they take reservations for their patio seating!More

So pleasant. Not crowded. Ordered the seafood (Not the meat dishes. Like ordering fish at a steak place). So many choices. Helpful service...I didn’t know what I wanted.

The Waypoint is the go to place for wonderful food. Their service is top notch. The traditional German Wiener Schnitzel is outstanding! They also have on occasion a duck special that is very tasty. Very attentive and compliant with Covid-19 precautions.

With friends we found Waypoint and had a delightful meal from the 'special' on offer. We ate the rack of lamb which was cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth. Our vegetarian ate a specially prepare meal which she loved. The following evening we...cam back for the second special we had wanted and that was the Halibut with Risotto. Again is was cooked to perfection and the cook had already prepared stuffed squash for out vegetarian which she very much appreciated. We had a wonderful server, Teri who looked after us both nights. We had a lot of fun with her. The manager Howard and the owner chatted to us for quite a while in each night and both were delightful, This restaurant has to be a "Go to" for the atmosphere, food and wonderful personnel working thereMore
