Great atmosphere for dinner with a nice view of the York river. Many different beers to choose from. Enjoyed the raw oysters & lobster mac&cheese … just a bit in a pricey side.

We made reservations a month early for Thanksgiving Day. Spending the day at Colonial Williamsburg, it seemed nice to visit Yorktown for Thanksgiving dinner. Our table for six was in a nice alcove with windows looking over the River. The Thanksgiving buffet was truly bountiful....Choices were turkey, ham, prime rib, and crab cakes; a cold seafood included oyster, huge shrimp, and more; a variety of vegetables and casseroles assured everyone had plenty to eat. Our grandchildren ate the most we’ve seen them eat. Each child went back for seconds and also tasted new and different foods. Desserts were good. The pecan pie and chocolate mousse were the big hits. Our waitress was good being sure we got plates for ease of going to the buffet as many times as we wanted. It was a perfect ending to our Thanksgiving DayMore

The view from the restaurant is spectacular. Unfortunately, the food quality doesn't come close to the view. The food likely comes from a can, lacking any sophistication of taste. I had a baja taco, which was essentially a fried fish with sour cream and diced...tomatoes -- no taste whatsoever. Wife had a crabcake sandwich, which didn't taste like crab and daughter had an extremely overpriced cobb salad (don't order any salads). Not to mention the drinks -- which we had to repeatedly ask for, even after seeing our neighboring table receive their drinks before us even though they say down after us (same waiter).More

It’s our third time at the Water Street Grille. The service was really good. We ordered a cheeseburger from the kids menu, our child said it was really plain which was not a big deal but then my kid ate it and it was raw...in the middle. If you order one for your little one. Make sure you check it . Maybe some people prefer uncooked in the middle, but not us, ground beef should be cooked completely. It’s not a steak. The Baja Fish tacos were delicious but for 18$ not enough to fill you up, and I’m a small female. A little disappointed. I don’t think we will be back:(More

We just had finished visiting the Yorktown battle field. Had saw this place online. We asked to sit on there covered porch area. Had about a 35 minute wait. Allowed a short walk to the river walk. Got seated on the edge. Server was awesome....We tried the Mac & Cheese Eggrolls . Very tasty. We had a huge chicken sandwich, a big Hamburger with fries and a crab roll Blt. All we very good. I would highly recommend this place for lunchMore

Good service but avoid Food was poor. Sausage was hard as a rock because of over cooking. Price for food was higher than shown on the menu. Music too loud. When asking why the price charged was higher than on the menu, answer was "Sorry...about that."More

Food was delicious! Service the worst i have experienced 😩. Ordered 12 clams and only 6 delivered. Took almost an hour to get remaining 6! No sauces for clams or crab cake provided but indicated included on menu. Server had no clue what remoulade meant!

We were looking forward to a pleasant Yorktown dinner after very few dining experiences during Covid. It was a busy Friday evening and we were given a wait time of 20 to 25 minutes. After two returns we were given a table after a 55...min wait. The restaurant tables were well spaced and it seemed that few people had been seated based on the number waiting. Our server did her best to meet our needs but everything around her seemed chaotic.Un bused tables,long waits and a generally poor atmosphere. One she crab soup ( Luke warm and marginal quality ) salmon Ceasar salad,fish and chips ( good ) and two beers came in a close to $ 80. Not appropriate value. Our first visit,but won’t be going back any time soon.More

She crab soup might be called soup soup, it was that bad. The lobster roll was bland (from frozen claw meat) The fries were very good. The fried oysters was ok, but below average

Our server, Stephanie made the visit very enjoyable. We went late on a Tuesday evening so it was empty and felt safe to eat inside for the first time in a year. The food was beautifully presented.

Was looking forward to lunch with friend.Disappointed to say the least, we were seated, ordered lunch and halfway thru noticed that the tables were very close together. I had called ahead to ask if they were seating 6 ft apart and was assured that they...were. We paid our bill and asked to speak with manager,when I questioned why people were seated so close together, she became hostile and rude. Very unprofessional and childish. Food was good, but lukewarm. Sarah. Our server was professional, but that was the only good experience at Riverwalk Restaurant We will not be back!More

Dinner after sightseeing, nice evening to be outside. Lobster pot pie very good as was the red snapper. Service a little spotty, but nothing bad. It was a very nice way to end the day.

I went here about 8 years ago and the meal was memorable, and so I came back since I was in the area again. The meal (ribeye) was excellent again, my daughter loved her lobster roll (sourdough bread would improve it, though), and the rest...of my family enjoyed their meals. Good service and good food, but I did miss the large bottles of water they used to put on the table. ** We had to eat on the Water Street Grille side of the restaurant because of renovations, but it was ok.More
