Tweeds

We have lunch at Tweeds several times a year and always have a wonderful meal. The guacamole with shrimp appetizer is on our regular list of things to have as is the bison and cabbage soup. The soft shell crabs and bay scallops are prepared as they should be -sauteed, not fried - and are... read more

I love this restaurant. The burger and steaks are always good but the surprise is the striped bass. Always cooked perfect. Good strong drinks,and very cool atmosphere.

I came across a herd of Bison while driving on my first trip to the area. A sign on the fence told me the bison are served at a local establishment, Tweeds restaurant and Buffalo bar. The location is on the main drag in river head and is a small restaurant that sits about 50. I suggest any group over... More

What a neat surprise to find this delightful culinary experience in the middle of downtown Riverhead. The building and restaurant have been there since the late 1800's and the embossed tin ceiling and the artifacts that hang on the wall harken back to those early days. I felt like I was like dining in a museum! The menu specializes in... More

Nice looking, a little "Manhattan" inspired .. My husband and friend had buffalo burgers, they were very dry ... friend and I had hangar steaks, very tasty. Would like to try again and try the buffalo burgers again.

I think that I had too high of expectations. I have heard many good things about this restaurant and I finally had the opportunity to give it a try but I wasn't really "wowed" by anything. My girlfriend and I strolled in there on a Fri night around 5 and we were able to get a table but the hostess... More

After a winery visit this is the best way to end the day. Healthy meat and fresh vegetables from the local area. Service is good and wine list is plentiful. Bravo!!

Restaurant was different for the area, but in a good way. It was sort of a step out of time, but food was creative and excellent, drinks were very good (they even had a full collection of Pappy van winkle - very impressive) and the decor was interesting in a good way. On Sat night they had a piano player... More

I am a meat lover and I eat a lot of beef and bison. Tweeds has the best bison filet mignonette that I've ever had. The hanger steak is incredible too. Who would have thought that you could get fresh tasty crab cakes at a steakhouse? I did here. They were phenomenal. It's not cheap but the quality lives up... More

Looking for a place for lunch in the center of this town, and stumbled across this spot. Interesting bar type decor with history to match and a surprisingly interesting menu as well. Bison burgers (and chili), duck wrap (really really good) with salad and potato wedges (seriously filling), ample potions, good service, and a good experience.
