My husband was in the mood for some good lobster and did some research to find that Riverway had good reviews and decent prices. The restaurant itself was a little dark and dingy, but i think i may just be ultra picky in that area since most restaurants where I'm from are new construction. The water was good, which means...

The baked scrod was good. Nothing great. The atmosphere is excellent. Have been here over the years and will still come. They do have music at times, which is usually a Wonderful piano player . For groups under 25 there is a separate room available. No charge for the room and the mgt will customize the menu , if wanted.... More

Recently went to a banquet for my fishing club at the Riverway Lobster House and despite, being a banquet the food and service were very good. The prices are reasonable off the menu.

They had a brunch which looked lovely. Because we had been cleaning out an apartment, we wanted a quick, good lunch. We got that. We had lobster rolls. They were good, but we both like lobster chunks rather than shredded. But it was good and we will return

Lynn and I and friends recently visited the Riverway Lobster House for the first time. We had read positive reviews about their lobster entrees on Trip Advisor. The restaurant was convenient to our timeshare in South Yarmouth. Lynn and I each ordered the Stuffed Baked Lobster($35) with two sides, we each had a baked potato and butternut squash. Our lobster... More

Went off season so didn't get to really enjoy the waterside atmosphere which is probably it's biggest appeal.

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.

Thank eminana
