Nice location

Good food with alright service. Since we are here to eat I will say that the food was really good. I had the lunch special which was grilled swordfish with rice and steamed vegetables. A bit pricey but good.

Wow! Food was decent but service was horrible. Seated at a wobbly table and beer spilled. 15 minutes to get a new one and was charged for it!! Complained to the owner on the way out and he offered to refund my money but it was too late as the waitress should have taken care of this. Won't be back...

This is a restaurant with good local flair, and not a tourist trap type of place. The dress is extremely casual, you can wear shorts and flip-flops if you want. They had great local fresh oysters, clams, that were served raw and on the half shell. Very very good. The salads are OK, and the shrimp cocktail was huge and... More

Seafood heaven. Visit the Riverhead aquarium all day then go eat dinner at Jerry and the mermaid. Right next door. Just walk over. If it swims they serve it. And it's all great.

We had lunch here and found it average. There wasn't a huge menu and everything was fried - even artichoke hearts which is quite a feat! Very poor choice of desserts, excessive use of the whippy cream! If you like American fried food this would be fine, if you don't there are plenty of other places in Riverhead.

Been here once before and loved it, not so much this time. Our duck wings were delicious as usual but when our entrees came, the kitchen mixed up our baked potato and rice sides. I thought that this would be an easy exchange, however it took longer that we thought. our meals came back and the were cold. The waiter... More

The food was good. Service was so-so. Great selection on menu. Could use some more ventilation outside on the porch. Lots of flys and biting bugs took away from ambiance of the atmosphere. Nice place overall!

Thank you for visiting our restaurant. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your food and do express my sincerest apologies for the flies. The fans we have on our patio typically help keep with ventilation on the outdoor patio and keeping the summer bugs away. On your next visit we'd be more than happy to seat you inside. More

This is a bar that serves good, fresh seafood, rather than a fancy restaurant. Staff were friendly. Chowder was excellent. Fried fish was tasty but slightly oily. There are better in Riverhead, but this does the job perfectly well.

The food looked nothing like the pictures posted on Trip Advisor. Wilted salads, so-so entrees, slow service when there were hardly any customers at 8pm.
