Friendly service and excellent ice cream.

The service was friendly and the ice cream was excellent for the price. Plenty of flavors to chose from.

Star Confectionary is an authentic "main street" "mom & pop" place that has retained it's charm and remained viable. They offer fresh and delicious comfort food, with excellent home made ice creams and chocolates. Skip the chains and visit Star Confectionary for a delicious breakfast or lunch.

I love this place.. it's like stepping back in time to the 40's and 50's...booths and a tin ceiling.. glass showcase...a real soda fountain! Food is good.. place is clean and friendly. Gotta have a real ice cream soda!

Drove out here for my sister's birthday. Great little place to eat. Delicious soup and a great egg sandwich. Definitely worth the stop. Love coming to little places like this.

We've eaten here several times while visiting Riverhead and always had a great meal, both at breakfast and lunch. Great Burgers!

The building dates to 1912 and still has many original items including a tin ceiling. I is a step back in time. Speaking of time, we went on an overwhelmingly busy Sunday just before they lock the doors at noon. As a result we had to wait a very long time before getting our meal. My wife described her western... More

What a lovely little place - I enjoy every time I go in there for lunch. Its a simple menu but the food is good, the service is outstanding. Make sure you try one of their lovely little milk shakes next time you drop in.

There is nothig special on their menu other than home-made ice cream that they remarket. My wife and I had veggie omlets and panckes and french toast. Nothing wrong with them but nothing particularly tasty either. I have a strong prejudiceagainst corn syrup on pancakes. If they had real maple syrup I would have been very pleased. But this place...

Very busy breakfast spot on Saturday morning. Locals and visitors alike all flock here for breakfast. We were able to get a table pretty quickly. It fills up though. There is counter seating for the run off. Breakfast is made fresh as you order it. Takes a little time but everything is freshly made so well worth it. Delicious bacon... More

After having lived in the area for years, I was finally able to visit this long-running (since 1920) business in downtown Riverhead last month (July). Housed in a historic building, the location still retains its old-style charm, from the wooden booths to the pressed-tin ceiling. Coupled with this is a tasty selection of food and its friendly service. The only... More
