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.

We visited the Riverway for their double lobster special priced this week at $22.95. They were nice size, well presented, but the claw meat was from a lobster that had just molted and the claws were very small, the tails were fine. Our service was good and we enjoyed the Cape Cod atmoshere. The Riverway also has early birds 7... More

This is one of the best restaurants in S. Yarmouth.The service is prompt...no waiting for anything. The food is very good. You have to try the lobster and crab bisque...best EVER! We ordered seafood and steak and all were cooked to perfection.

The food here is just average but the prices are high. Had the Chatham haddock with "twice baked" potatoes and butternut squash. The potatoes were mashed but chunky and cold. The squash was puréed -- could have poured it into a glass-- and tasteless. The only real positive was the lack of a wait.

Many years ago this was the finest restaurant on the Cape. It coasted on that rep too long, went through a decade or more of poorer quality, but the last 3-4 years, quite a turnaround! Meals have been excellent, service great, and a better variety of good value meals. Earned their re-entry into our faves on the Cape!

I really enjoyed being served by 'Priscilla' tonite. She bounced right over to our table, with the most happy eyes and smile that is seldom seen in a very busy restaurant! She served my table and if something wasn't quite the way I wanted, she made it right! So, when you're in South Yarmouth, MA, ask for her area and... More

We had dinner in the Riverway Lobster House and liked it very much. Broad choice of seafood and other dishes. No difficulties to find something for everyone. Friendly staff and good service - perhaps a bit slow but vey friendly. The (lazy) lobster was heavy but good and so was the lobster and crab chowder.

We had a great meal at this restaurant. The staff was very friendly and we showed up 1/2 hour before close. The food was a bit pricey but you got a tons of food. The lobster crab chowder was awesome! The lobster mac and cheese was loaded with lobster meat. There was also a piano player, playing and singing all... More
