We had a really good seafood dinner here. The dishes were close to perfection, and even the wine was good according to European taste. The decoration is tasteful, and the service was as professional as friendly. Prices are appropriate

It’s always difficult trying to find a table in the early evening, as everyone seems to eat early in Cape Cod. I advise that you book whenever you want to eat out but we were lucky to get a table here without a reservation. It is a big, busy restaurant and has a nice atmosphere and it was full by... More

My Mother and I traveled New England for 8 days and ate here. What a great menu and the food was fantastic! They also don't skimp on the adult beverages!

The atmosphere was pleasant especially if you enjoy the piano which starts at 6 pm. Early bird specials are generous as well as flavorful. It was a complete meal including dessert & coffee. I highly recommend the applw crisp! Unlike some places there are many choices on the menu. Both times we were there the service was excellant.

Riverway was our second choice but it worked out just fine. Our first choice (admittedly, no reservation) gave us a 2+ hour wait estimate. Riverway told us 30 minutes and had us seated in 15. Baked stuff sole was a little over-toasted but very tasty. Everything else was good. Love the old fashioned desserts; I had the grapenut custard. Well-attended... More

In fact we had two visits with slightly different experiences on each occasion, good service the first time and not so good the second time. The food was consistently good on both occasions with good size portions and a good choice. We didn't have to wait for a table either time but the place does cater for coach parties that... More

This was our first visit and we were all happy with it. I had seen something on a take-out menu that wasn't on the regular menu. I asked the wait person and was told I could have what I wanted. She was very attentive to us all as was the rest of the staff. I'm sure we will make a... More

Our group was very excited to try this seafood inspired restaurant on Cape Cod. We started out with some very nice rolls and a salad with their own bottled dressing that was quite tasty regardless of it's really bland ingredients. We had high hopes that more good things were to come after these starters. Not exactly. We were on a... More

I tried the greek salad with calamari topping and found it to be very good. My margarita was also very good. We had a large group that was happy with the service. Prices are slightly higher than other nearby places.

Every time we come to the Cape, which is often, our first stop is the Riverway. The food is always great. The wait staff friendly, most importantly you are never rushed. Love their salmon and lobster. Husband gets steak tips almost every time.
