Made plans with a group of friends to meet and greet. When we got there, found the place was closed for renovations. No signs. Telephone just rings and rings. Should have a message that they are temporarily closed.

I was unimpressed before they changed ownership - equally unimpressed after they changed ownership. It's a shame because it's a cute place and before this family took it over, the place was very good and welcoming with great value for the dollar. Now it's run like there's a need to pinch every penny and the customer is merely a dollar... More

Had a great lunch with four friends , much better than we were expecting . Very friendly staff who served excellent food at a good price . We all went for the traditional American burgers which were possibly the best I've tasted anywhere in the last few years . Would definitely visit again

Popped into this odd little restaurant / bar tucked away on a quiet street in Riverhead looking for a late lunch . Served by a couple of lovely women who sounded like extras from the Soprano's . The menu choice was extensive and the food quality excellent . Total bill for 5 came in at less than $65 incl drinks... More

This is just one of those local "go to" places...not the least bit trendy or fancy - just good food, good prices, very nice people. Birchwood is in the heart of Riverhead's "Polish Town" so you can guess what some of the menu offerings are but there are plenty of other choices.

When in Riverhead I recommend taking advantage of the yummy Polish food. The corn fritters are to die for!!

Good food at good prices. Not much atmosphere, but worth visiting. Try the German specialties. You'll like them.

A very nice atmosphere with two fireplaces. Always packed for Sunday Brunch. Special Eggs Benedict's are offered with sides such as asparagus. Start off with homemade bread and jelly while you wait. Fresh fish dishes are always on the menu as well as entree salads. The homemade desserts are wonderful. A little pricey but very nice. Friendly wait staff, management... More
