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

Delicious food, especially Sunday brunch. Homemade donuts on Sunday! Sandwiches are delicious, fresh ingredients, creative (turn old favs into new ideas), riverside ambiance, and the service is excellent! Sarahbeth is the most polite and passionate waitress out there. Would like for her to be at all restaurants! Very good about checking for food allergies, too. Perfect place to unwind at... More

No problem with continuity. I had catch of the day and wife had bourbon Salmon. Both were fantastic. Best meal in a long time and would... More

Being in in the restaurant business, it's really hard for us go out and say that we had a great meal but this was truly awesome. The calamari was so fresh it melted in your mouth ... and the taste, amazing - fabulous restaurant & a great view!!!

We visited the restaurant on our honeymoon. We had heard good things about the restaurant, and even though initially we were told there were no window seats, they did seat us next to a window. We were pleased. The atmosphere was great, and the food was pretty good--but pricey. Our main problem was as follows. I ordered a 'vodka martini'.... More

After a morning in Yorktown, we came to the Riverwalk Restaurant for lunch. The atmosphere was pleasant and the staff was very nice. However, the good was very pricey and bland. We will not be returning.
