My husband and I took the kids here for lunch today after a day pumpkin picking at a local farm. The place was crowded but the food was served quickly. It was fresh and delicious and even our picky eaters (3 and 10 year old boys) enjoyed their meals. We look forward to going back.

We visited on the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend. We arrived around 6 pm and were told an hour wait for inside or we could sit immediately outside. We sat outside. It was chilly but our server was prompt and there was live music. I had the New England clam chowder and the lobster roll both were very good. The... More

Many of the offerings on the menu are fried seafood so my guest and I ordered fried entrees. The food was poorly prepared---soggy and greasy. It was served with a wilted salad and standard coleslaw. It's a shame you can't order a decent fish and chips at a casual seafood restaurant. It seemed like management was missing from the premises... More

True to its name, they make a truly good Lobster Roll, both hot and cold. A really nice place on the North Fork near the farms and the wineries. Definitely worth a stop even though it’s a little out of the way. Outside seating during the season. Only open on weekends off season. A little pricey, but worth the price... More

We have been coming here for years, whenever we are near the outlets, going out to the North Fork, or are looking for lunch on the way to the Hamptons. The food is always good. The lobster rolls are famous and rightfully so. But the other seafood is great too, We love the fried clams, the chowder and the fish... More

My wife and I have been going to "Lunch" in Amaganset for over 30 years. This time we stopped at the location in Riverhead. The food is every bit as good as we remember. This location is a little more formal when compared to the original, which is like an expanded roadside stand. My wife always orders the Lobster Roll,... More

I am so glad we stopped to have lunch here while wine tasting. The food was really good. I am crazy for lobster rolls in the summer and this one was pretty spot on. It was not busy when we went, but the wait was a little long. The service is great and take care of their tables well. Next... More

The Lobster Roll in Riverhead is a little off the beaten path but is always bustling. You can dine indoors or outdoors. The outside patio area is great for families with young children since there is a cute wooden playground in full view of the dining area. The food is classic seafood restaurant fare but done right! I have never... More

If you are heading to Eastern Long Island (we went to visit NY Wineries), MAKE SURE to stop and visit the LOBSTER ROLL, Northside in Riverhead. The service is quite OUTSTANDING. EVERYONE that serves you seems happy to work there. THE FOOD was SPECTACULAR. BOSTON lobster rolls HAVE NOTHING on this place. The are 6 different styles of lobster rolls.... More

So much lobster meat that I had 2 sandwich rolls. This place is as good as any New England lobster roll place! Rich was our server and he was outstanding. In... More
