A little below average plane which had lost it lust. The food seems frozen and more like a tourist trap.

Have visited the Cape for many years and never thought to eat here, this week we decided to try it since our usuals were closed for the season. What a great place! Dinner was excellent, being Gluten Intolerant it's not easy, however they had a nice choice for me to choose from. I had the Shrimp scampi very tasty over... More

My mother, who lived on the Cape for many years, loved going to The Riverway. We started going back because they always have turkey on the menu. Who doesn't like turkey and stuffing on a cold winter day? What is nice about The Riverway is that they have a early dining menu that includes everything for a set price. There... More

Wow! Read a review on this place and checked it out before going. They had an unbeatable lunch special...1 lb. Lobster for only $12.99. It was delicious and so value-priced. The green beans and rice were both great too! This place can't be beat. Check them out!

This restaurant has great food. The atmosphere was wonderful. We ate in a room that was in a corner for group. The food can be a bit pricey but definitely worth every penny.

This is a cape classic, and they have multiple locations to try. (Wimpy'a is the other) We love coming here for the lobster & crab chowder, it's a must try. They also have a nice pub that offers half price appetizers at certain times.

Met family members here for a delightful lunch. The prices and quantities were a nice surprise. I can see why the local seniors flock there for lunch. The fish was fresh and delicious. Will return soon!

Went to Riverway for their lunch buffet on a Friday, got there the last hour of it. Most of the food was cold or room temp., had to ask server to microwave most of it. she was more than happy to do it, but should never have been allowed to sit , as it was at room temp at best.... More

The double lobster dinner "deal" is the best value on the Cape considering the excellent service, lovely upscale setting of the restaurant with comfortable booths, and the consistency of the food, which is always first rate. We've enjoyed Riverway with large groups (the management and staff know how to handle them) and on a romantic couples date and always had... More
