This restaurant is beautifully decorated and features a nice view of the York river. The service was attentive and knowledgeable. The wine list was interesting and fairly priced. The food was creative but the entrees lacked small touches. The tomato basil soup with crab meat was tasty and loaded with crab. The rice balls were expertly prepared, each of the... More

Great seating on the terrace, overlooking the river and bridge. We both got a lunch salad and added to it (salmon for me, chicken for hubby). Both salads were very nice, fresh,... More

After our tour of Yorktown, we decided to dine here and enjoy the waterfront atmosphere. If it were a bit warmer, we would have opted to dine outside. The restaurant has excellent atmosphere and our seat by the window was nice to view sail boats on the water. We started with a martini and my husband ordered oysters on the... More

Good, Sunday, regular dining. Hit and miss with either high end or mid range. Not sure if it's high range or mid range restaurant.

We just had a sandwich and soup which was one of their specials. the service was good, food was excellent and the view was outstanding. Would definitely recommend this... More

We stopped at Riverwalk for lunch and had an amazing meal! We started with oysters and then I had a lobster and shrimp pasta dish in a cream truffle sauce with fresh pasta! I loved every bite of it. The service was good for the most part but our server disappeared toward the end of the meal.

Riverwalk Restaurant exceeded my expectations...service was great, views were lovely and relaxing, and I LOVED the shrimp & grits! They also make a terrific martini. No complaints...if I'm ever back in Yorktown, I'll seek it out.
