Poor lighting! Could barely see the menu. Waitresses were preoccupied with making sure they got their chance at the next american idol on the kareoke machine. She gave inaccurate prices for the food we were served. The piss clam(steamers) were a little bigger than a quarter and were very gritty. The jumbo shrimp were the frozen vandekamps you get at...

We are sorry to hear you were disappointed when you came to our restaurant. On Friday and Saturday evenings we have karaoke from 10:30. We do dim the lights as part of the bar atmosphere. We do our best to get all of the sand out of our steamers.Typically, they are one of our most popular and well enjoyed items... More

Something about this place keeps us coming back. The NE clam chowder can't be beat. It's that good. Try the rare Tuna or seafood special if it is Swordfish or grouper. Chop salad a must have too. Only complaint is the 2.50 for soda including each refill so if you have 3 it's 7.50. Can get crowded at prime time.

Came here last week for lunch. We sat inside and had an artichoke appetizer that was very tasty. Then we had the fried combo. It was also very good. It came with delicious French fries and a weird coleslaw. Our waitress was very good and friendly. Will def be back!

Riverhead rising, Riverhead rising!! Exclaims the Town of Riverhead, advertisements, reviews of the newest restaurants, bars, venues proclaimed loudly over the last couple of years. And yet, to my surprise I found a restaurant that's celebrating its 20th anniversary, Jerry & the Mermaid. What a find (never heard of it before) ! Crowded Friday night (7:00 before Labor Day, not...

We are glad you found our restaurant and hope you come to visit again! If the weather permits we would suggest sitting in the back patio. We have no television screens out there and think you would enjoy that. We appreciate your positive feedback and look forward to serving you again. More

We ate twice here and both times it was friendly and the food was good. We particularly liked sitting outside.

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.
