This restaurant is worth the trip. Very friendly and attentive staff. The decor is appropriate for a seaside and seafood eatery. Food is awesome. Will definitely be back.

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.

Went on a Sunday night with another couple. Place was fairly empty. Calamari was good. Stuff clams were over cooked. Shrimp scampi was cooked nicely. The special was nothing special. Just ok. Waiter was attentive. Would go back again.

We went to Jerry and the Mermaid as part of a package plan while staying at the Hyatt East End in Riverhead. We had our choice of 3 restaurants, and with Jerry's being so close we decided upon going there. Nothing too fancy inside but we didn't want to get all dressed up after touring vineyards for the afternoon. Casual... More

Terri, I am ecstatic to hear you got to try and loved our local scallops! Peconic Bay Scallops are my favorite dish to cook/serve for the entire year. I feel privileged that the harvest has been strong and I should get to serve them for the next several months until the scallop beds get closed down. The first Monday in... More

We were unsure when we walked in weather it was a good place or not after reading some reviews, but decided to give it a try. The staff was friendly. The appetizer was delicious (Oysters Rockefeller), but the dinner not so much. I ordered the special (way overpriced - ask for the price of the special beforehand) and found the... More
