What a cheerful, cozy spot to get in the Christmas spirit! We sat by the fireplace AND the windows overlooking York River on the day after the Christmas boat parade. My oysters on the half-shell had totally unique additions. They were fabulous and delicious. The she-crab soup came with a tiny pitcher of sherry to add to taste. Hubby enjoyed... More

Came with some relatives after touring historic Jamestowne. All of us enjoyed the meals and the ambiance. Great water views. The she crab soup and the salmon salad were especially great. Friendly and efficient service.

We have eaten here a couple times and been pleased both times. Friendly service, good food, and a nice view of the York River.

We had lunch at the Riverwalk. The food was fabulous. Our waitress Sara was a very pleasant. We would like to return for dinner. This is a high end restaurant more up scale then Berret's.

Had dinner the Friday night after Thanksgiving at Riverwalk. Very pleasant location for a family dinner, casual conversation not overwhelmed by restaurant or party sounds. Had the she crab soup and shrimp and polenta. Very good, more than I could eat.

This restaurant has a nice selection of entrees and wines. Good view of the river. Atmosphere and staff were nice. Food was above average but not excellent.

Went with Four Adults and two children for an excellent meal and great service. The menu offered something for everyone and all selections were excellent. The service was great on a very busy day after Thanksgiving. The prices were very reasonable for the quality and quantity of the food.

Best seafood in Yorktown. Beautiful interior. Service was wonderful. Ask for Becca. A little pricey, but well worth the 15 mile trip from Williamsburg. Right on the water.

Came to the resteraunt after the lunch crowd so it was very quiet. The view of the river was nice but it was a bit chilly to eat outside. Our waitress was very helpful as I had some questions about directions. The food was very good and the portions were huge. I could not finish the fish and chips. There... More

Wife and I each had seafood combination. Shrimp was very good, fish of the day ok, crab cakes very plain, and fried oysters varied with some being fine and others needing a bit more time in the oil. Crispy squash, onions, etc needed more cooking and cream potatoes were just plain basic. Wish I did have a high point for... More
