Jerry and the Mermaid is a fantastic and most phenomenal restaurant. This incredible restaurant has some of the best food I have ever tasted in my life. You have to experience it to believe it. The delicious cuisine is out of this world! I'm really picky about food (ridiculously picky), especially when it comes to seafood and this restaurant far... More

I was in Riverhead for Hurricane Sandy and stayed at the Hyatt next door. The father & son are BOTH certified Chefs, straight up Italian and produce outstanding dishes. Great little bar scene, had a SUPER time laughing it up with the Crew; I ate everything on the menu and sampled plenty of their avante garde fares. Best Lemon-cello on... More

Love Jerry & the Mermaid, we've gone personally several times and I also take clients to eat here as often as I can. They are a staple on the East End. Great Seafood Bisque Soup and NE Clam Chowder. We booked our 2015 Rehearsal Dinner with Jerry in his newly renovated back room also - Cant wait!

If you want good seafood and don't care about ambiance, this place fits the bill. I ordered one of their specials, Peconic Bay scallops on a squash purée. Also came with a side of rice and some sautéed veggies, and a salad. I was very pleasantly surprised how good everything was. My husband had Mako shark and said it was... More

Arrived late into Riverhead, so needed somewhere quick and good to eat. Our hotel next door recommended this to us and it was not a disappointment. The seafood is excellent, and highly recommended. The lighting could possibly have been a little brighter, but was not really a major problem. Good service and nice salads. Would definitely recommend.

This is right next door to the hotel. It is a restaurant with a bar. I did not eat here but it's a great place to have a drink. Food looked amazing and seems quite busy.

We stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The people who work there (maybe owners???) were all very friendly and professional. The food was fresh and tasty. I'd go back for sure.
