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

We come here ever year for our annual vaca and love the food (sometimes even twice while we're here!). Everything is great - food, drinks, cleanliness, atmosphere.

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.

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
