We have been going to Riverworks for many, many years. Their food has been consistently great. Their staff is always awesome and it just has that home town vibe!

We love to go here for casual dining with our grandkids. Good sandwiches and the kids love the root beer.

It's a local dive bar. Pub food, very small and attracts the local riff raff. Prices are fair. Not the place to take a date.

I was visiting my daughter who is new to Newmarket and wanted to find somewhere for a nice dinner. I looked on Trip Advisor and this restaurant looked good. Glad we went! I was traveling with my mom whom is a hard to please diner. My daughter and I both had the Cajun Buffalo Chicken tenders, salad and fries. The... More

fun and quality in one place - great food, great variety and really awesome drinks Bring your friends and sit in the bar area and you'll feel like you're a regular; or dine upstairs and enjoy the antique building and the comfortable atmosphere.

I have eaten at the pub several times over the past year and have found the food to be average pub food. Have tried a couple of different plates and I would admit that the food is good but average. The service can be challenging when it is busy to get another drink. The food prices are very good, so... More

Great little neighborhood bar/tavern. Fun games, cozy, friendly atmosphere. Better variety than typical bar fare. Friendly service. The restaurant is fine, but we usually prefer the more casual downstairs bar/pub.

We had an adequate meal here for lunch on Sunday. Service was very good. Beef bacon soup was tasty but way too salty. French onion soup was fine, but could have used more time under the broiler to brown the cheese a bit. Caesar salad's dressing wasn't like the Caesar dressing ls we've ever had. Tasted more like bottled Ranch... More

We had the opportunity to visit Riverworks Tavern for dinner recently, and it was outstanding in all regards. The building is charming and pretty typical of what one would expect in this former mill town, but that's where "typical" ends. The menu is creative, and the quality of food is really outstanding; it is matched by a great menu of... More
