I can't add much to the good reviews already given by others here, but I weill say we had a delightful lunch here. The location of the restaurant, right on the river, is superb. The view from all tables gives a good look at the river. And, if you choose (it was much too hot when we dined) you can... More

This was my first time there since the renovation and new ownership one year ago. It was noon on Sunday and I said at the bar had a cup of Minestrone Soup and a glass of Wine. The soup was a solid four star and the house Cabernet also a four star. BTW, great pour of Wine. Honey great bartender.

We came to Williamsburg Va three years ago and did not have one really good meal. Today we ventured to Yorktown and had a great meal at Riverwalk. Hostess was pleasant, Shawn our waiter was even better. We never have room for appetizers or desserts but my daughter had the pizza and loved it. My husband had the petit fillet... More

This is a lovely restaurant with a gorgeous view of the River and outdoor tables. Our server, Amanda was top notch. They had a nice Sunday brunch menu. We enjoyed coffee ($2.75) and a split of champagne ($8.00). My husband enjoyed his French Toast ($12.00). I had the Crab Cakes and Eggs Benedict ($16.00). A patron at the table next... More

This place came recommended by our B & B. The service and appetizers started out fantastic, but took a downward spiral after that. Our main courses took well over an hour to come out. The waitress informed us that it was about half an hour behind schedule. At this point I didn't evrn feel like eating anymore. The oysters we... More

My family and I were visiting Williamsburg and decided to scoot over to Yorktown for a quick look. We made a brief stop at the battlefield and then drove through Yorktown. It had been years since I visited the quaint town. We were planning on returning to Wmburg for dinner but saw the Riverwalk Restaurant with its alfresco seating along... More

This is a MUST if you're visiting Yorktown! Great spot located right on the York RIver. Scenic spot to enjoy a great meal and drinks. We stopped here first before heading to the battlefield to do the driving tour.

We discovered this on our second night and were only in the region for 3 nights or we would have been back again and again! As it is we visited on our third night too!

Ate here with a group. The service was passable but not outstanding. The food was unimaginative, smothered in sauce and over cooked. Poor bar with little to offer beyond beer and a few cocktails. Must cater to tourists as I can not imagine the locals going here more than once
