a nice place to eat

Tavern eating is better if you're with friends and is more relaxed than the dining room, fireplace in tavern is very nice in chilly weather. The food is very good to excellent. Service can be hit or miss, most of the time it is good. I would recommend this restaurant. I like to go here for girls... read more

We stopped by the Riverway Lobster House for dinner and were not disappointed. My wife had the Oysters from the raw bar, calamari and clam chowder. She found all to be fantastic. I had some of her chowder and agreed, it was very very good. I had the fish and chips and found it the fish to be average. The... More

We were there for lunch and were favorably impressed at the great food at a very reasonable price. The wait staff was very friendly and the service was prompt. The portions were very generous. This will be a return visit when we are next in the area.

My wife and I had dinner here our first night in Cape Cod and it was probably the best meal we had all week. We each ordered the lobster, which was very reasonably priced, and it was absolutely delicious. Everything from the sides to the drinks to the deserts were absolutely delicious. We wanted to try different restaurants throughout the... More

We have been to Riverwzy twice - both for lunch. It is a restaurant that has been a landmark on the Cape for at least 50 years. We hesitated going, fearing it might appear a bit "long in the tooth". No worries. Dining room was beautiful, sunny and well appointed. Full menu very impressive, but unnecessary due to excellent luncheon... More

Nice atmosphere, extensive menu, and attentive service all made Riverway a dining destination we would definitely return to. We did not have to wait long and the menu offered and extensive list of fresh seafood items. Choosing was hard but the end results were great. The wait staff was very efficient and friendly. The dining room was lovely and decorated... More

Stopped here for dinner the first night we were in the area. We arrived a little after 8pm but the waitress Janice was still very friendly. We ordered the lobster & crab chowder which was delicious. Then we had a salad with lobster and a fish sandwich which were very good. The second night we decided to go back since... More

Four of us had a wonderful lunch here in May. When one of our party inquired about swordfish, which wasn't on the lunch menu, the waitress graciously checked with the kitchen and brought us a dinner menu from which we also ordered. She couldn't have been more helpful! We enjoyed wonderful starters: lobster and crab chowder and raw oysters. Salad... More
