Better than Expected

A little more costly than I thought a 'pub' should be but had the right atmosphere and decor for a dining experience with Buffalo burgers and bison selections. Worth at least one visit to give it a try and see if you feel comfortable.

Was here for lunch recently with two business associates. If you like an old-school pub atmosphere, this will fit for you. Small restaurant. Pretty quiet at lunch though, with the resurgence of downtown Riverhead, I suspect Tweeds may have a Renaissance coming. (There's several new places opening up on Main Street). I had the seared tuna for lunch. Fresh and... More

A warm and comfortable bar and restaurant with a twist of 19th century ambience. I half expect a character like Wild Bill Hickok to walk in with a slab of buffalo over his shoulder. The bison, like the servers, can be a bit grainy and dry at times, but there is still something pleasing behind it all. Worth the trip... More

Tweeds is a friendly pub atmosphere serving Bison and Beef among other savory dishes. Daily specials are indeed special. Great bar and drinks/wine List. On occasion at 5:30-6:30 we had to wait a bit for our reservation, but well worth the wait and rest assured, once you are seated they will not push you out. GREAT dinner GREAT fun and... More

I travel to Riverhead frequently for work and have visited Tweeds twice for dinner. Both times, the restaurant is nearly vacant (maybe one or two tables occupied) and both times the service was horrendous (same 50-ish year old server). We waited FOREVER for our drink order to be taken, then for him to come back to get our actual order,... More

I had dinner lastnight with my boyfriend at Tweeds. It was my first time and it was amazing. We sat with Alice at the bar and she was so sweet and helpful. We had the scallop appetizer, lobster ravioli and a steak. It was all cooked perfectly and delicious. We will defiantly be back!

My son wanted to take us out for a meal and as he had never eaten here before we thought it would be a good experience. We all ordered some variance of buffalo. The food was awful. The place was empty, they stuck us in the back, we should have gotten up and left after the appetizer but my son... More

A bit of time had passed since we had a meal at Tweed's. So we decided to head over for lunch today. The day was snowy & a bit gloomy....a warm meal at Tweed's surely changed that! I had the bison hanger steak with the mushroom cognac sauce...delish, my husband had the strip steak & fries ( his favorite )...he... More

Every time we go, the food is excellent. And the service is right on the mark. The ambiance is comfortable. And on Friday night the live music was entertaining without dominating. No complaints at all!
