Picked a cold winter day today to visit Riverwalk Restaurant for lunch. Had not been there in years so wanted to try it out especially since it has changed management. The restaurant was pretty empty so we expected not to have a long service wait. Our waiter was very pleasant but disappeared for long periods of time. My husband joked... More

You can't beat the river view here--always great! But lunch today fell short. I had the flounder sandwich--fish was very bland, needing much salt and pepper. My wife had the Grilled Chicken with sautéed spinach. Chicken was tough, and the spinach was loaded--LOADED--with garlic. Usually much better food here.

If you're looking for a place with a view, a place where there's a soft breeze and the warm sunshine this is the place. Unfortunately it was December so we couldn't enjoy the ambience. The food was still good. I had the shrimp and grits which had few shrimp and more sausage. The crab cakes which my husband had were... More

Just returned from dinner at Riverwalk. Warmly greeted and promptly seated at a great window table with a river view. Server explained specials (food and wine). On Sunday evening any wine by the glass may be purchased by the bottle for 1/2 the normal price. Great deal! We started with the avocado app (roasted avocado with cheese, bacon, cilantro sour...

Our lunch today was very delicious. The fish and shellfish was very fresh. The batter was light and didn't overcome the taste of the fish. Recommend the "blue plate"! Nice experience.

A raw cold December 9th in Yorktown, Va. saw my wife and I go into the Riverwalk Restaurant to escape the cold and have lunch after touring the Yorktown battlefield. What we found was a beautiful place to eat with large window views of the York river and a roaring full wall fireplace at our end of the dining room... More

We enjoyed this water front restaurant at lunch. The interior and the view are great. They had a nice lunch selection and we enjoyed it.

There was a lot offered including plentiful seafood and the traditional thanksgiving fare. The food was very good and everyone was well pleased.

The restaurant is located next to a bridge by the water, at night, the bridge is lit and beautiful. The table we had is directly by the window, as we eat, we can see people outside fishing on the river. I'm from the Midwest, so I am NOT accustomed to seeing rivers this wide. We had a nice view.
