My husband , son & I had dinner at the River Room on Sunday, Sept 14th. Although it was pretty close to 9, our waitress was very patient & did not rush us through our appetizers & entrees. She suggested the whole flounder & seafood kabob, chowder & a small Greek salad. My son thouroughly enjoyed the chowder & kabob,... More

This is the best kept secret around for seafood. Never a wait and always great food. The desert is homemade. Try the coconut cream pie .

The food is really good here, although the restaurant itself is spartan. We had been told that the seafood is fresh and well prepared here so we gave that a try. The special that night was a shrimp and scallop made with chardonnay, tomatoes and garlic over linguine. Delicious. We had looked at other tables and the portions are very... More

Fresh, quality food and good presentation. Most items on the broiled platter were overcooked which included the fish and especially the shrimp and oysters. The crab cake and scallops were fine. Everything looked good and tasted fine. Due to the shrimp, oysters and fish being overcooked, it wasn't a 4-star meal. It is a big platter and I thought I... More

The owner/chef is retiring and we decided to have dinner as a sort of "fare well" to him. Jimmy has been at this location for years and food has always been outstanding. He outdid himself this time. Food was wonderful. I got my favorite, veal with linguine and other entrees were the Crab Au Gratin (more crab than you can... More

I remember a tomato rice lobster dish from the late great Nick's Seafood Pavilion of Yorktown Va. I called around and found out that the prior chief from Nick's now continues to create Nick's famous dishes at the Duke of York Restaurant. So finally I was able to, with anticipation, eat again this fine dish. I was not disappointed ......in... More

We stopped by the cafe for some lunch with our 3 kids on the recommendation of a Yorktown trolley driver. We received UNBEATABLE service from Ernie who bent over backward to accomodate our requests. The open faced roast beef sandwich and crab cake sandwich were delicious. It was a quiet family friendly atmosphere. Excellent service and a tasty meal!

Wow! EXCELLENT seafood. Several of us had the seafood platter and it was HUGE. Everything on it was delicious. It was next to impossible to eat it all but we tried! Stuffed shrimp were awesome --and huge--as well. If you have room, the coconut meringue pie is scrumptious!
