|JAMES CITY-A day after the owner and chef of Waypoint Seafood & Grill announced he is leaving the fine dining establishment and handing it over to a former partner, it appears the restaurant has closed. |
A hand-written sign was posted in the front window of the restaurant on May 26 announcing the closure. “Due to unforeseen circumstances, Waypoint is closed until further notice,” the sign read.
It is unclear whether the closure is permanent. The restaurant closed a day after Waypoint Owner and Executive Chef Hans Schadler released a statement that he and his daughter, Tina Schadler-Phillips, would both be leaving the restaurant.
Waypoint Seafood & Grill first opened in the Quarterpath Crossing Shopping Center off Route 199 across from Kingsmill in 2011.
“Over the past 10 years, we created a culinary destination where you felt as at home here as you did in your own kitchen; a place to celebrate life’s big moments as well as savor the every day,” Schadler wrote in a farewell letter to patrons. “We discovered new wines, new foods, and broke bread together, forging new friendships along the way. Working side by side with the finest staff in the business, we achieved all this and more.”
Schadler urged customers to stay tuned as he and his daughter determine what lies ahead for them.
