“Will never have my buisness again”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

If you go here and you have a server named lisa your already in for a horrible experience. Last night we had a wedding rehearsal party for 17 people, we showed up at our proper reservation, and it was all down hill from there. It took an hour just to get our drink orders, also it took so long for the groom had to walk to the bar to get his drink that was never rung in, there was also a 3 year old that never received her drink until lisa was asked for the fourth time. We didnt even get our entree orders in until almost 9, by this time the party was getting pretty irritated and approached a manager which said she would take care of this. Which afterwards things started to pick up and work out.Then the waitress lisa came back buy with a horrible attitude and even got an attitude with the grooms mother. The food was way over priced, the service was horrible. There was nothing really ever done to compensate for all of this. I applaud the younger waitress that finally came over and took over for lisa sadly i did not get her name but she did save the night from the party just walking out. The chefs also did a outstanding job with the food and presentation. Overall tho i was unimpressed and upset with management, and the server lisa has turned us off of from ever stepping foot in this restaurant again.

“Great View”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

The view is great and we had the pleasure of watching a bridge opening and ship passing during our meal. The food was good - nothing great - but good and a bit pricey for the amount/quality. The atmosphere is very nice and the service was good. There were mostly locals having lunch which is a good sign although it must be full of tourists during the busy months.

“Food find in Yorktown”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I had two excellent meals here. The first was in the main dining room where we had made a reservation. I had scallops over smoked gouda grits and they were really delicious. Our waitress recommended a cobbler for dessert (which had to be ordered in advance), and it was excellent...hot from the oven with a crispy top and wonderful fruit.

The next night we went back and ate at the bar - there is a small but interesting tapas menu (and you can eat from the regular menu as well). The bar wasn't much for atmosphere as they are doing some renovations, but the food was once again very good.

“Great Dining Expreience”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We were looking for Nick's Seafood Restaurant (haven't been here in years) and didn't know it was long gone. Across the street was the Riverwalk Restaurant so we took a chance. We were rewarded with a great lunch and very personable waiter.

Robert Hatch, the waiter, gave us really great recommendations and his charisma and wonderful talescontributed to a great lunch.

All four of us chose different entrees, but we all chose to try the She Crab soup - and we all recommend it.

The Originl Blue Plate Special, Vegetarian Primavera, Waterman's Pot Pie, all from the regular menu were all delicious and attractively presented. I had the scallops with soy and ginger sauce on a bed of rice and was totally pleased.

Desert - forget it - the soup and entree were enough to satisfy.
