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.

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.

Water Street Grille opened at Riverwalk Landing in Yorktown in 2013. Waypoint Seafood and Grille first opened in Quarterpath Crossing Center in Williamsburg in 2011. It closed at the end of May of this year, a day after owner Chef Hans Schadler announced he and his daughter Tina Schadler-Phillips would be leaving the establishment.
