Went on a Sunday night with another couple. Place was fairly empty. Calamari was good. Stuff clams were over cooked. Shrimp scampi was cooked nicely. The special was nothing special. Just ok. Waiter was attentive. Would go back again.

We went to Jerry and the Mermaid as part of a package plan while staying at the Hyatt East End in Riverhead. We had our choice of 3 restaurants, and with Jerry's being so close we decided upon going there. Nothing too fancy inside but we didn't want to get all dressed up after touring vineyards for the afternoon. Casual... More

Terri, I am ecstatic to hear you got to try and loved our local scallops! Peconic Bay Scallops are my favorite dish to cook/serve for the entire year. I feel privileged that the harvest has been strong and I should get to serve them for the next several months until the scallop beds get closed down. The first Monday in... More

We were unsure when we walked in weather it was a good place or not after reading some reviews, but decided to give it a try. The staff was friendly. The appetizer was delicious (Oysters Rockefeller), but the dinner not so much. I ordered the special (way overpriced - ask for the price of the special beforehand) and found the... More

Wanted a good seafood experience close to home and wasn't satisfied at all. I got the bisque and calamari. both were terrible. Soup was too salty and not enough flavor. Calamari was typical chewy and bland. Never going again thanks to this one bad experience.

Chosen from trip advisor and not least for the fact we were staying at the Hyatt 15 yards from the front door. Greeted promptly with a friendly smile and the service throughout dinner was excellent. The menu was varied but with an emphasis ( as you would expect from the location) on seafood. I had the broiled combo which was... More

Stopped by here for lunch as we were passing thru. Not much to look at from the outside, but don't judge a book by its cover. We had a excellent lunch you could tell everything was made fresh. Simple, tasty food. We would eat there again, definitely.
