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

Great view of the river. Sit outside when you go. Service is wonderful. Food is not very good. Descriptions do not match what us on the plate.

Here today for lunch with friends. Our favorite restaurant in Yorktown, right on the river by the drawbridge, beautiful! We made reservations online and our window table was ready for us. Our server was attentive and friendly. I ordered the bourbon-glazed salmon which was delicious! My wife had the grilled lemon chicken which turned out to be a bit dry.... More

We first attempted to eat next door but the hostess was so rude we ate here instead. So, so glad we did. It was lovely. The Hostess was terrific. She made it a point to seat us how and where we wanted to sit. The waiter was attentive but didn't hover. The lunch salads were very well presented, tasty and... More

This place is beautifully positioned next to the York River, and there is outside seating should you require it. The staff are very helpful and attentive. As for the food...well excellent doesn't get close! It is of good quality, well prepared and presented, and not particularly expensive....well recommended.

We made lunch reservations for seven people on a Friday. Our server was extremely friendly and attentive. We were very pleased with the fact that everyone was thrilled with their lunch! Two of us ordered the chicken salad. Two of us ordered the French Dip. Two of us ordered the crabcake sandwich (with artichoke tartar sauce). And one of us... More

We had walked the Riverwalk and the Historic Yorktown area and we were ready for a relaxing and enjoyable late lunch. We had heard about the Riverwalk Restaurant and so we returned to the Riverwalk. First off, the staff is warm and friendly, finding us a table for two that gave us a little privacy in a very large bar... More
