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.

Riverway has been around a long time and we always found that they have friendly and efficient service along with good food at a reasonable price. Their portions are a good size and the menu is pretty varied especially the specials they offer most if not all nights. I recommend you make reservations especially for weekends. They serve lunches and... More

Recently had dinner here and of course had to get lobster. My choice was their baked stuffed lobster, which came stuffed with huge scallops and a delicious crumb stuffing. My friend got their Lobster Newburg and that was yummy. Our waiter, was so nice and accommodating and so much fun. It was a great enjoyable evening and we left with... More

A little below average plane which had lost it lust. The food seems frozen and more like a tourist trap.

Have visited the Cape for many years and never thought to eat here, this week we decided to try it since our usuals were closed for the season. What a great place! Dinner was excellent, being Gluten Intolerant it's not easy, however they had a nice choice for me to choose from. I had the Shrimp scampi very tasty over... More

My mother, who lived on the Cape for many years, loved going to The Riverway. We started going back because they always have turkey on the menu. Who doesn't like turkey and stuffing on a cold winter day? What is nice about The Riverway is that they have a early dining menu that includes everything for a set price. There... More

Wow! Read a review on this place and checked it out before going. They had an unbeatable lunch special...1 lb. Lobster for only $12.99. It was delicious and so value-priced. The green beans and rice were both great too! This place can't be beat. Check them out!

This restaurant has great food. The atmosphere was wonderful. We ate in a room that was in a corner for group. The food can be a bit pricey but definitely worth every penny.
