Just love this place! Food is always good and their early bird specials are a great bargain! Nice bar with tons of TVs. Seems to cater to people of a certain age, which is alright by me. Perfect for couples and families. Nice quiet dinner

Some time ago I moved to Yarmouth and stopped by the Riverway for dinner on moving day. The room is large and was only partly full as it was winter. Many diners knew each other, which was a good sign--locals go here for a meal. I was pleasantly surprised but not overly impressed. However, we have brought friends to the... More

Very cozy inside near the fireplace, many tvs, great selection of beers, many specials, can make a meal of appetizers. Never miss a chance to go there.

The menu is basic, the food is solid. Service is good. The ambiance is lacking. Dining areas seriously need updating and brightening.

This was our 2nd time trying out their lunch specials (that aren't advertised on the online menu but are on the in-house menu at the bottom). If you don't know about them - please take time to check them out because they are THE BEST luncheon plate deals on the Cape. The selection offers a perfect blend of seafood and... More

I have been to Riverway once or twice, but not recently and not for lobster. I remembered it as being pretty nice, so when my friend and I had a lobster craving and our usual place was closed, as was the restaurant across the street from Riverway which is okay, we decided to go there. What a disappointment! The lobster... More

Had the chowda and oysters on the half shell for Sunday brunch. Wife had Lobster Egg Oscar, all great. Clean, good service, great food, especially in the "off season"

Six of us stopped in for dinner on a Saturday evening. The staff was very accommodating even on a busy night, and set up a table for us within a few minutes. The atmosphere is good, with a fireplace in our dining room. The wine choices were good. I ordered the salmon with capers, mixed vegetables, and baked potato. Everything... More

Restaurant has an ambitious menu, and some items were hit, some miss. Bit rushed with what looked to be a function taking place.

The Riverway has been on the Cape for many years. While I lived there I only went a few times.So when I recently visited the owner at The Club, where we stayed suggested it. We were a large party with children. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. I had a delicious salad that I would definately order again. Everyone... More
