This is the sister restaurant to our absolute favorite, Wimpy's in Osterville. We go to both each time we visit the Cape. Both seem to be very popular with the locals which always means the food is good. It took awhile to be waited on but once we were everything was delicious. We had the early bird special (salad or...

Excellent food and service. We were seated almost immediately during a busy time - Saturday evening - and didn't wait long for service. Would visit again

This restaurant has been around for more than 30 years. Had several owners. The atmosphere is typical nautical cape cod. The food is good the service is great! It's never been my first choice for dinner but their prices are reasonable for good food. Enjoy!

Our motorcoach group enjoyed their whole lobster experience at Riverway! The wait staff was there to show everyone how to eat their lobster and eat they did!! A great Cape Cod restaurant!

Ever visit a place and wonder: Where do the locals dine when they choose a restaurant? Well, many of us pick the Riverway - a dining destination synonymous with quality, warmth and value. (For avid bargain hunters, lunches and Early Birds are very affordable - especially for the size and quality of the fare.) Because surely if you're on the... More

We ate there twice during a recent stay in Cape Cod. We went back on the second occasion as we had been so impressed with both the food - the sea food is excellent - and the service. There is an excellent range and the food was served quickly but was very fresh.

Nice atmosphere and very good food. Liked it so much I had my daughter's baby shower there. Baked cod with lobster sauce is to die for. Pot roast is superb.

Stopped at 5:00 in time to view extensive early bird menu. Seated and served drinks promptly. Nice seating and lots of parking. Not busy at this time but when left was getting there. Had the quahog chowder which was excellent, and soup of the day, artichoke cheese also excellent, seem to be homemade. Had the 1# lobster boiled with cheesy... More

We stopped in with a bus tour of 52 people. WOW, they must do this all the time. The entrée was hot and delicious. Service was outstanding and efficient. Everyone was served quickly. We were not pressed to eat and run. The shortcake was homemade and delicious. Overall, it was an outstanding experience. You won't be disappointed.

Thank 7JNJ
