because I have been a patron at Jerry and the Mermaid for several years. But, I have to say, Jerry's is our 'go-to' restaurant for family events either large or small, or for a simple Happy Hour. I never leave without having 'Jerry's Famous Wings', either. Get them! Jerry Junior is an awesome host and an ever better Chef. Tony,... More

We've been making Jerry and the Mermaid a Friday night tradition ever since we brought our boat to Treasure Cove Marina over 10 years ago. Wonderful casual atmosphere - good for kids or date night, whichever you're looking for. The menu has something for everyone - from seafood to steaks to burgers - and the specials keep it fresh every... More

My family and I have lived on the North Fork for over 30 years, and we didn't go to Jerry and the Mermaid as a group until recently. The waitstaff is great and Jerry was very present in the dining room, making sure his customers were having a great experience. The outdoor dining area is nice and very kid-friendly. I... More

This was suggested by hotel staff when I asked about Seafood and it did not disappoint in any way. Drinks were cold and food had great flavor. Enjoyed Crab Cakes to start and Clam Strips for diner. I will return when in the area.

If you are looking for some great seafood, look no further. My family and I were visiting from Toronto, Canada and are used to some pretty good seafood restaurants - we enjoy calling ourselves "foodies" and like nothing more than discovering great new restaurants. Jerry and the Mermaid is fantastic - everything is fresh, sauces are flavourful, light, and wonderfully... More

Went here for dinner and the service was horrible. Waited over an hour for 2 fried seafood combos. My son had a clam strip that was actually rotten! All mushy and disgusting. Sorry, there is no excuse for that. Will never go back.

We were in search of a restaurant in Riverhead that was open late (past 8:30) on a weekday night and had outdoor seating that would allow our dog to sit with us. After being told no by another restaurant, we came upon Jerry and the Mermaid. We were about to order take out and sit on a bench when one... More

We were staying next door at the Hyatt and decided to try this place one evening. Jerry, the owner, made sure we had a good table and checked with us several times. Our waitress was a pro and answered our questions about the menu items. If you are in the area, try this place. You won't be disappointed.

Love this restaurant! The staff is always friendly and accommodating. The owners often leave the kitchen to come out and see how we are enjoying our experience. Most importantly the food is consistently amazingly delicious! I recommend the seafood bisque, steamers or mussels luciano, and pignoli crusted grouper or sesame tuna for dinner! My husband doesn't love seafood but he... More
