Water Street Grille Takes Over Waypoint Seafood and Grille

JAMES CITY-The team behind Water Street Grille in Yorktown is taking over the Waypoint Seafood and Grille restaurant in Williamsburg, which abruptly closed at the end of May following the departure of its owner and executive chef.

“We are very honored to be taking part in a restaurant that is so respected and loved by the community,” announced General Manager Jennifer Gallaccio and Chef Brian Hines of Water Street Grille in a social media post on July 1.

While the new Waypoint Seafood and Grille menu will not be the exact replica of its previous owners, “we will still be offering only the freshest farm to table ingredients that Waypoint was previously so well known for,” the post read.

An exact reopening date has not bee announced, though “we would like to be up and running in the very near future,” Gallaccio and Hines wrote.
