A wonderful evening with dear friends

We enjoyed a lunch at the Riverwalk Restaurant after touring Jamestown Settlement, on our way to tour Yorktown. It was a perfect day to sit outside and enjoy the fabulous view of the river, and the boats (both large and small) going by. We had the avocado appetizer (very creative! and delicious) and the fish tacos (also very good flavor).... More

The food, service, scenic view, and atmosphere were great, however there was 1 hiccup during our dinner. My son in law hates pickles. I mean HATES them. Just mention the word pickle and he gets sick. Anyway, he ordered the 'french dip' and there was a giant pickle on the plate next to the sandwich. No mention of a pickle... More

The Riverwalk is located on the James River and included memorabilia from Nicks. The food was fantastic! Our server Sean recommended a bottle of unoaked Williamsburg Winery... More

This restaurant seems to get mixed reviews but our dinner was wonderful. The service was attentive and timely. The food delicious and nicely presented. I've eaten here several times over the years and it's just as good as ever.

Grilled oysters were great. Bread and dipping oil great. House salad FANTASTIC. Wine was great. Steak Gorgonzola had no flavor. NO Gorgonzola, or "cream sauce", and cold. Same with... More

Easter dinner here with another couple. Great view from all tables but ask for a table next to the window. Buffett was not huge but very good for the most part. Ham, round of beef, crab cakes, snow crab legs, short ribs and more. Chicken was dry but there was plenty of excellent food. Service was good. Desserts were ordered... More

A sampling: I had elk chops with crab cake and a cherry sauce. Wow! My husband had the rockfish and it became his new favorite fish. Tweens had clam chowder, and pasta with veggies, and avocado stuffed with--forgot what, maybe cheese and bacon; looked great and all was well received.

Was wandering in Yorktown and happened across the Riverwalk for our evening meal.... The main restaurant had a 25 minute wait so the hostess suggested we ate at the bar as it had the same menu and there was no wait for seats..... So glad the restaurant was full, the bar was perfect. Great friendly atmosphere, lovely barman who was... More
