A Family Tradition

Good food, good service Good Price! Always a Family tradition to dine at The Riverway whenever at the Cape. Also a local favorite. Lynn (our waitress) was a lot of fun and took great care of us...

Bovell made our meal an amazing experience. We had a lobster feast and it was the most delicious tender lobster meat we ever had. The lobster crab soup was a great start. Equally so was the corn bread. We couldn't have had a more enjoyable evening. We will return to the Riverway lobster house soon and we will be certain... More

Stopped here for mid afternoon lunch. The food was great. I ordered the fried whole belly clams which were on special. They were good. My husband ordered the fried fish sandwich which looked very tasty. It was a piece of fried fish on marbled bread with cheese and slaw. I will certainly try this next time, it looked so good...

Nothing to say negative about the food. It's a good place as testified by the other reviews but we did not like the personnel at all. First of all, the person "welcoming" you at the entrance tends to be quite arrogant and will surely tell you that the waiting time is X minutes when the reality is the double. But... More

No trip to the Cape would be complete without a visit to the Riverway. The food is very good, and location cannot be beat. We love it!

We just returned from another wonderful meal at the Riverway. Our server, Cheyenne, was excellent! A great personality, she was attentive and went the extra mile to make our meal more of an experience. The portions were large and cooked perfectly. We took advantage of the Early Bird Specials served between 4 and 5:30 pm. I highly recommend them! We... More

We had lunch at The Riverway. The service was very good; the server was attentive without hovering. The food was tasty. There is a wide variety on the menu. For lunch, there are additional dishes on the menu.

Food good (not superb), menu extensive, location ideal, service can be spotty. Still would recommend Riverway.
