Convenient to the Aquarium & Hyatt Place

We were attending an event at the aquarium the following day and this location was certainly convenient. From a food standpoint, the 3 of us liked our food but I would describe it as pretty basic seafood - not bad at all but nothing overly memorable either.

Tucked away in the shadows of the Hyatt Place in Riverhead is an unassuming treasure trove of tasty delights known  as Jerry and the Mermaid. Entering this establishment is like stepping into a friend's kitchen where you will be greeted warmly and promptly and seated with a smile and a welcome that makes you feel like you are a regular,...

We ate here upon the recommendation of staff at the Hyatt Place next door. It was a nice experience. The place feels homey and the cooking is homestyle. It seems to be a place the locals are drawn to. Our waitress was great -- very friendly and efficient. I had the shrimp parmesan over linguini and it was quite tasty.... More

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
