After much deliberation, we thankfully chose the Riverway for Easter Dinner. We liked that they offered the buffet and the regular menu. We were so glad we did! Not one member of our party of 10 was disappointed. The buffet was one of the best I've had. Others enjoyed the delicious, fresh seafood entrees from the main menu. A big... More

Staff extremely friendly and efficient but food wasn't up to your usual. It's been our tradition to visit the Riverway for Easter brunch forever but this will be our last year.

We wanted lobster and a lot of places weren't open until April 15th. The atmosphere was great and the service was very friendly and efficient. The lobster was a little tough but good. The butternut squash and double baked mashed potatoes were great. Also, we were served rolls and corn bread. The corn bread was outstanding. Prices were ok. We'd... More

We visited this restaurant one evening at around 8pm. They had a piano player just finishing off, which made for a pleasant atmosphere. Our waiter was very prompt to the table, and helpful and knowledgable about the local beers. We both ordered starters, and these were delivered promptly. However, the ravioli was fried in breadcrumbs and was overdone and greasy.... More

Whenever we r on the cape, the Riverway is a definite favorite. We will visit in May to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Love the fish and piano player.

I ate lunch here on three occasuions, once in April of 2016, the other two times in July of 2016. I was with my wife and we ordered lobster rolls, chowder and fish and chips. Each time the portions were large and delicious for a very fair price

The best onion soup on Cape Cod. The whole menu has plenty of variety and it's all good! Nice Bar with full menu and beverage service and plenty of TV's for watching your favorite team. Lots of parking and all the comforts of home.

A group of us dined at the Riverway on Saturday night. Our visit was the entree portion of our progressive dinner so we didn't have appetizers, salads, soups or dessert so consequently I couldn't review them. If they are indicative of our perfect entree they would be delightful. The Riverway Lobster House is upscale with entrees between $18 to $30... More

Stopped in randomly. Hadn't seen or read any reviews. Meal & service was excellent. A little expensive, but well worth it. So many restaurants on the Cape are expensive, but only mediocre, The Riverway is a pleasant surprise to earn my hard earned dollars.
