Lovely views of the York River, fast fresh breakfast with very good service. Prices are reasonable and I enjoy walking on the beach in the morning. (Beach right across the street). Have only eaten lunch here once but it was a pleasurable experience as well.

We are breakfast regulars but the "Duke" will fix you whatever you want anytime of the day. Tried their grilled Boar's Head Roast Beef and Swiss Cheese on Rye sandwich--OMG--the flavors were amazing. This is such a special place to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner. Locals and tourists chattering away, a happy atmosphere, quality food, great presentations, reasonable prices, cheerful... More

Great for dinner. Can't beat the view. Menu items shades of the old Nick's Seafood Pavilion. Good local fish.

After talking with a local on the street, this place was suggested to us. Not much to look at, sort of a 50's diner atmosphere which doesn't fit the name of Island Café. Our young waiter Gavin, was very spot on with his recommendations of the crab sandwich and the meatloaf. A bit over priced for the quantity but delicious.

We went for lunch on Sunday afternoon. They have a great view of the York River and the Riverwalk. Wonderful hot marinated green beans with tomato and onion was our side. Very cozy and charming little place in the Duke of York Hotel on Main Street.

We ate there 2 times the week that we visited Yorktown. We both had the seafood platter, one fried and one broiled. They were both wonderful. The crabcakes here are made from handpicked lump crab meat. They were light and airy and had a wonderful taste. The best we had the whole time we were in that area. The staff... More

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
