Nice place for stare at bay , but quality of food should be better . Oysters were fresh and good , but we didn't enjoy way how to served tuna, shouldn't be small cubes . And chef should work about taste of salmon and crab soup.

Called there for luunch with my wife. Seated very quickly in a booth. Waiter Ben was just fantastic, when I asked for a beer recommendation he asked what I liked and then brought me 4 samples to try before I ordered. All were good. He had great knowledge of the menu and was able to explain all the menu options... More

We were visiting Yorktown for my birthday. We enjoyed the beach and decided to get something to eat. There are a few restaurants with a water-view and we selected the Riverwalk Restaurant because of the menu. We waited 15 minutes for a seat on the patio. The views of boats passing, people fishing and the breeze were wonderful. The tables... More

A few friends and my daughter enjoyed the Mothers Day Buffet. It was more food than anyone could eat in one sitting. The atmosphere, the wait staff and the food was above par! I would recommend anyone that has a special occasion or just a nice evening out as the view is wonderful to go here!

Tomato salad was delicious. Tuna steak special with small lobster tail and shrimp and mashed potatoes was awesome. Fish and chips was over cooked. It should have been flaky.

We stopped by for lunch on a hot summer day after touring & shopping and were immediately soothed by the cool & lovely décor with the view of the York River. We were greeted by the waitress & attendant who did everything possible to please. We started with delicious clam strips that brought us right back to years in Cape... More

My wife had the stuffed avocado skins. They forgot the crab topping, then made excuses and brought the cup of crab out unfilled. My crab cake on a croissant roll with a side of fruit was delicious!

We ate here twice because the food and service was amazing. Tip: happy hour prices only available in the bar so buy your first drink there and bring it to the table.

Excellent all round attention to detail by Staff, no rushing nor pressure whilst continually attentive. Good wholesome food, well presented and adequate rather than large. Highly recommended.
