My Mom's favorite. Always has fresh local ingredients and offerings in season. Try the Bison steaks they are excellent. The local seafood is great and well prepared. They always seem to have fresh, local bay scallops that are sweet and tender. Extensive local wine list. The entire menu is reasonably priced.

Tweeds is located in a historic hotel in downtown Riverhead. It has become my husband's favorite restaurant! We usually have the Bison burgers, but other entrees are fabulous,too! They use fresh local ingredients. The staff is always professional, knowledgable and curteous. You will never be disappointed by the food. I only wish I lived closer to this gem!!

This was our first time to Tweeds. We came in for a late lunch/early dinner this past Sunday (06/29). Our server was a cute young lady who's name I did not get but she recommended some of the dinners and she was right they were great. Very nice atmosphere, great food and excellent service. We will definitely return. John Gangone... More

We visit Tweed's several times a month and have always loved the food Not only is their food consistently excellent but their wine selection and availability is great. I believe this is one of the best restaurants on the east end of Long Island for both seafood and beef/bison. It is great for a casual lunch or dinner on a... More

We used to rent in the Hamptons as just out of college "groupies" and I had bad memories of Riverhead as the place where I failed my written driver's test and hitchhiked back to Westhampton Beach. Anyway, 40 some years later (and a fully licensed driver) we had the chance to revisit the town and meet with family at Tweeds,... More

I recently ate at Tweeds on a visit after soem time in NYC, and entered to a very warm greeting from the waiting staff, and a local man at the bar recommended us the best table in the house. A bowl of steamers with butter dip, followed by a delicious bison steak (a first for me) with good and fairly... More

I have been to Tweeds many times. It is ALWAYS excellent. I love the clubby atmosphere, but the best part is the food. Always very well prepared and I always feel like I am getting my money's worth. The wines by the glass offer good choices as well. It is easy to miss this place because the location is not... More

Historic restaurant in downtown Riverhead. Happened to visit during Restaurant Week 2014. Old style pub/parlor complete with marble bar and a real Bison head that is storied to have been shot by Teddy Roosevelt himself. It was weekend, but still off season on a Saturday and the restaurant was moderately busy. Had the Cesar Salad with a side of Anchovies.... More
