If someone didn't suggest we go there to eat I would have never known it existed. Our server was very nice and was sat in a corner table. The salad was your average green tossed salad. I passed on the appetizer, though others at the table said they were excellent. I decided to have one of the specials, which was... More

A fish restaurant tucked away in the corner of a hotel car park that's serves incredibly good food . Clam chowder and giant shrimps for staters . Quality that rivals the best restaurants in NYC or Paris . As with most things outside of the big cities good value for money .

At first when we walked in we were not greeted as staff members passed us and i had to wonder if i seat myself or not. Then shortly after 3-4 mins we were seated at a clean table. Our waitress Corinne was personable and still smiling as it was 8 o'clock at night. Then i decided i wanted baked clams.... More

We had a wonderful meal at Jerry and the Mermaid in Riverhead, next to the New Hyatt Place and a few short steps from the Riverhead Aquarium. My Wife and I had been there a few weeks ago with my brother and sister in law,for a very quick salad lunch as we were leaving for a show. My wife and... More

Was staying at the Hyatt Place next door and decided to try the restaurant in the parking lot. A few of us tried several dishes: steamers, marinated burger, artichokes, and wings. All items were delicious and the sauces they make on premise were delish! The bartender/waitress was very helpful in assisting in our choices.

My friends and I were in the area for some wine tastings for the weekend. This place has some of the most delicious food. The prices were very reasonable, the staff was very friendly and the chef even came out and asked us how everything was. There is something for everyone here: bar food, entrees, seafood, chicken, steak etc. ,... More

This used to be a local diamond in the rough but has been brought more to the front based on its location adjacent to the Hyatt hotel. Great place in the summertime when you can dine on the outdoor patio. Seafood dishes are exceptional and the specials never fail to delight. My wife is a big fan of the grouper... More

Expansive bar selection, warm environment, nice menu. Many of the dinner selections are a bit heavy handed, but tasty, and the (non-fried) specials show some subtlety. I ate there twice, so that says something!

Not much for decor, but the food and service was great. We had the Seafood Bisque and the New England Clam Chowder for apps. For our main course, the Tuna and Salmon. All were delicious! I highly recommend eating here.

We were driving east on a drizzly Memorial weekend Saturday and stopped for lunch at Jerry and the Mermaid in Riverhead on our way to Greenport. We knew nothing about the place, but we will definitely stop there again when visiting family on Long Island. Fresh seafood, perfectly done and presented mussels with that special Peconic Bay flavor. We will... More
