Essentially a family meal, but all 5 of us are adults. Everyone agreed that the food was excellent and the service was friendly and helpful while being unobtrusive. Two of us had entrée salads, which had a better mix of field greens than a typical restaurant salad. My salmon filet on the salad was a nice size and prepared just... More

We dined at Riverwalk twice in the same day with 2 different friends. Excellent food was the hallmark of both meals! The traditional breakfast was outstanding and very generous. Dinner was up to the same high standard established earlier in the day. Riverwalk is rated #3 in Yorktown which I didn't know do to our friends picking the restaurant. Another... More

Stopped in for lunch on a very hot day to cool off and grab a bite to eat. We were seated and brought a glass of ice water. Our waitress was attentive but not overly. Our drinks were brought and our order was taken. I had the crab cake sandwich which was a hand formed crab cake topped with cole... More

Restaurant was nice and clean. We had a beautiful view of the waterfront. It was not crowded, yet, our service was slow. The food was just ok.

Our pulled pork sandwiches, fries, and salad was great. The service was fast and friendly. The outside seating offered wonderful views of the James River while providing welcome shade.

My husband & I celebrated our anniversary by dining at the Riverwalk on a Friday night. It was busy but not crowded and we sat by the window overlooking the York River & bridge. I guess making reservations helped with seating; my husband had requested a window view. We had cocktails and chose our entrees after hearing the specials which... More

We popped in with the family mid afternoon. The beer was cold. The food was good as well. Great service. The place was kind of packed at the time we arrived. Our server was on point for us keeping glasses full and removing things we did not need on the table.

Very elegant dining room overlooking York River. Reservations accepted and recommended on holidays and wee-ends. We had a late lunch. Fish and chips, fish tacos, crab cake sandwich and turkey club sandwich were chosen by our family. Sandwiches all came with choice of a side (salad, vegetables, fruit or fries) and all were very generous in size and tasted great.... More
