I would not recommend this to a friend for thanksgiving day. Although, I’ve never been on any other occasion so I cannot speak for the restaurant as a whole. We had a reservation made weeks in advance for 7:30pm. We arrived early and were told reservations were running 45-50 minutes behind. We did get seated by 8:15, but the food was just about average. It was slightly cold, picked over and not everything was served that was in the list. If I ever did this again I would make the reservation right at opening

This was the third year we've had Thanksgiving dinner at Riverwalk. We've enjoyed it every year, the food was fantastic again this year and we plan to continue our new tradition.

We ate here for the Thanksgiving Buffet. It would have been better if they also offered ham since I’m not a seafood or prime rib person, but everything else was great.

The food was decent, but not good enough for $130, for a meal for two. We ordered the Calamari Appetizer, which was delicious and the portion was on point. The entree, Asian Sea Scallop and Lobster .Mac and Cheese were both mediocre, nothing out of the ordinary. We also ordered two glasses of wine.

What was disappointing was the service. We waited at the entrance for someone to seat us for more than 5 mins, to the point that I was about to leave. The waiter also had a indescribable attitude towards us and the table next to us. We didn’t pay this much to get a subpar service. The view in the restaurant was pretty nice, although we were seated far away from the window while there were available seats near the windows. We probably won’t go back again.

The location, views, and quietness of this restaurant are all very pleasant. The wine the fish in the gumbo was overcooked; the fried seafood combo of mackerel, oysters, and the scallop dish, while very tasty and nicely cooked, was similarly chintzy with just 3 moderately sized scallops. At the prices, we simply cannot recommend Riverwalk.

My husband and I enjoyed a snack (around lunchtime) while sitting on the patio (great view!). We had their She Crab Soup and some raw oysters, both were delicious. The cocktail menu had many creative drinks and we enjoyed a couple of them while soaking in the lovely surroundings. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and service was fast. We will return.

Had our four year anniversary dinner here and the food was absolutely amazing. Our waitress was very polite and attentive as well. The only thing that was difficult was the lighting in the outdoor area where the two person seatings were. Very dimly lit and hard to read the menu’s. Besides that, it was 5 star food and service!

This restaurant has the ability to be really good. However, it suffers from tourist'ti'ous Yes Yorktown is a tourist town and unfortunately that is the problem. Tank tops and shorts with sandals does not make this restaurant seem like fine dining, plus the wine list is really weak and cheap. Go to the Seaside Bar two doors down.

My wife and I went to Riverwalk for the first time this weekend. It was great! Our server, Logan, was awesome and really took care of us. His recommendations on the menu were on point and i based my selection on that. Price was fair, the only issue we had was how the reception area was run. We had reservations and when we arrived the kid at the front said it would be a little bit of a wait for outside seating and if we wanted to sit inside he could sit us right now. We chose to sit inside, expecting to go to a table; however, he told us to sit down and it was another 20 minutes before we were seated. Other than that it was great. Riverwalk is a great place for a date night because it was quiet and the ambience was nice.

Excellent Service by Wait Staff and by Hostess.
As always, the food was outstanding.
Have traveled 150 mile round trip many times, to dine there for lunch or brunch.
The river front view is a beautiful place to dine.
Also, it is fun to walk along the river front after dining.

Lauren was an excellent server and very attentive to our needs. We dined early, so was seated at a window table and had a nice view of the water, which made for a relaxing an peaceful dining experience. We ordered the calamari/shrimp appetizer and although it was good, I would warn anyone that the portion is large, but ratio of calamari to shrimp is about 10 to 1. My husband and I were splitting it. He does not like. Calamari, so he really came out on the short end of the deal! We bot ordered salads as our entree and they were generous an delicious. Mine was the Riverwalk Salmon Salad and I had a very large portion of salmon. My husband ordered the house salad and added grilled chicken to his. We both thoroughly enjoyed them.

We have been going to Riverwalk for about 8 years and always loved it however this time was not the best experience. We brought out of town guests telling them what a great place it was and how good the food was. Unfortunately this was not the case. The menu was not the same , the food was marginal and the choices were limited. the pasta dish had sauce that tasted like it came out of a can, the steak was only ok and the potato and vegetable was not good. No choices in side with the steak. This is unfortunate as Riverwalk was always a favorite
