We came here for a late lunch before touring Yorktown. Hostess was courteous. Sat us by a window so we could have a view. Very nice. My 8 yr old had the calamari appetizer, the 10 had a bowl of She Crab soup. Both were delicious. My husband and I spit a bowl of She Crab and The Hot Brown sandwich. both were reasonable serving sizes and plenty for the two of us to share as well as tasty!. Our wait (Mark I think) was great! Wish we would have room for one of the desserts!

“Waterfront view restaurant worth finding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

A chilly fall evening and a walk around the Yorktown waterfront made a very good dinner at the Riverwalk just the thing to finish the day. We hadn't booked ahead but fortunately the dining room was not full and we were seated at one of the view tables by the large picture windows that formed the north wall of the room-facing the York river and York River bridge. A superior view and recommended for future visits.
We ordered seafood-broiled seafood medley for me-a beautiful presentation of crabcake, panko crusted shrimp served in a stylish stainless basket, and a lobster bisque that was a meal in itself; my wife had crab bisque and a broiled halibut portion that was very good. Desert was a death-by-chocolate preparation that was more than enough for 2.
The service was professional-about as good as you will find at Duke's, across the street (another local gem) and the food as tasty and well-prepared as you would expect to find in the big cities of the world. The restaurant is a spacious, well-appointed, colonial-themed set of rooms that are a part of the larger shopping complex that lies along the shore of the York river in a new, very attractive part of Yorktown. There is ample and free parking at the base of the bridge or in the double floor Yorktown parking garage across the street. Go for the food and the view.

“Wonderful food, delightful scenery!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Food is excellent and service is always above and beyond your expectations. If you have a chance and the weather is nice sit outside where the grill area is and listen to a local band. It makes for a lovely evening.

“So relaxing right by the water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Stopped for lunch while in Yorktown and had a very good lunch. First time trying She-crab soup with a generous dash of sherry (brought in a shot glass by server so that I could add what I wanted) and loved it. Had a very nice caesar salad after the soup. It was a beautiful fall day and we enjoyed our lunch outside along the river (only us and one other couple opted for outside). Very relaxing.
