We went on a Friday night in early August and surprisingly, the restaurant did not have a wait time...we were seated right away. The wine/beer list is good. I had the baked haddock with lobster topping (delicious) and the rest of the party had steamed lobsters. There were at least five different vegetable options in addition to baked potato and... More

We had a party of 15 in the dining room, great atmosphere, good service. I had the Colordo lamp chops, cooked to perfection. I've been there several times this summer, whether apps & cocktails at the bar, or the Tavern to dining room. Highly recommended.

Emma was our server the night we came to visit. She is new, but very good. We weren't too fond of the pitcher of Sangria, but the manager did help us out with enjoy it. The clam Chowder soup had so much filling! I would definitely recommend you to get it HERE. Entree plated nice. Cooked perfect. Very good experience... More

We were sat on the bar side of the restaurant in which I would of preferred the main dining room but thats ok. The service was excellent, our waitress was extremely friendly and professional. The food was delivered quickly and was excellent. Great place to eat.

First time to the Cape with my Kids and for my in-laws. Everyone was excited to have a lobster dinner. Made reservations for Riverway, though I should have read more of the reviews. We arrived on time and were seated right away. No small feat for a party of seven. Our waitress was also very nice and provided good service.... More

The French onion soup is AWESOME!! As was the rueben. The appetizer potstickers were 'ok'. Guess I didn't expect them to be swimming in the sauce - thought it would be on the side for dipping. Pricing was a bit much for what we got, but all in all, ok. Service was good.

Very nice experience. The restaurant was very nice inside, the service was excellent. They offer a Early Bird before 5:30. We tried this and was very happy with it. The early bird also includes coffee and dessert which was a nice bonus. We felt this wasn't a typical tourist trap like alot of restaurants in the area.

Our top two choices for restaurants had very long wait times, both did not take reservations for a party of two. So we decided based on reviews from this site to try this place. Sat at the bar, with no wait. We ordered the chowder which was good but not outstanding for $9.99. Ordered the flatbread of the day which... More
