Been passing this place for a while, and we finally stopped in for lunch/dinner. They have tables indoor and also outdoor. We sat outside. The menu had a lot of choices that all sounded so good. Our server Meghan was very helpful in describing all the choices to us and helped us narrow down what to have. My husband had... More

We go here often for lunch. The food and service are very good. The restaurant needs to be updated. Sitting outside is nice in good weather even though a lot of cars are going by. The Huntington location is nicer and the food is just as good. I have not been to the westhampton restaurant.

I went to this place since it was the highest TA rated seafood restaurant in Riverhead. They don't spend much on the interior décor (no a/c) but the food was great. I had the duck spring rolls, a bucket of steamers, and a few Blue Moon drafts. The duck spring rolls and unusual and I never saw this on any... More

This place doesn't look like much and it's not fancy but I had that best lobster I have ever had there. We sat inside because we were worried about bees but there were a lot of flies inside..however, the food was fresh and cooked perfectly. Service was ok, nothing special. Would definitely go back.

This place is like an oasis of good food in Riverhead. This is the alternative to the fast food joints at the Tanger mall. The clam bake is really good. The soups are good too. The open area in the back is preferable to the inside. Depending on the waitress, the service could be iffy but it is all about... More

i am a frequent swimmer at this basic restaurant w a few small charming touches. though amusing to me to sit out of doors on a major road there is an adequate hedgerow to block the view. Th e seafood is always fresh and basic or w a few gourmet twists. portions are good to generous and you can buy... More

We enjoyed everything we ate and we sampled a lot of food.....New England clam chowder, steamed soft shell clams, shrimp quesadillas, whole belly fried clams and clams on the half shell. All of the food was very tasty and fresh. The whole belly clams are some of the best you will find on Long Island. The problem was with the... More

We enjoyed a perfectly prepared boiled lobster lunch in a relaxed outdoor seating at a super value. For $66 we enjoyed a casual and memorable feast. I recommend the "Calm Bake" entree but next time I'm out I'll try other offering, but maybe not. Lobster and butter ... nothing better.

We have eaten at Buoy One several times. The food is very good, if a little overpriced. The fish market is much more expensive then stores you'll find further out on North Fork. With that being said, My husband and I had a very enjoyable dinner of swordfish and pecan crusted tilapia. We started with the tasty duck spring rolls.... More
