Ate dinner here while spending the night at the Hyatt next door. Had baked clams and wings for appetizers. Wings were very good, but the molasses (?) taste was a little overpowering so after eating two wings I had enough. I thought the baked clams were good but my husband thought they were a little too bready. For dinner, my... More

We went here after going to the aquarium. My son as a local recommended this restaurant. He has been here many times and told me it was a great place. He was right. We walked over the 1 block from the aquarium and when we walked in at 5pm the front room was filled as was the bar area. I... More

For entrée my friend ordered the broiled combo which was a mixed seafood platter. The amount of food was great for the price but it was lacking... More

HIGHLY recommend the artichoke appetizer. Order two, a bottle of wine and some bread and you are in for a treat! Jerry is a delight and a gracious host. LOVED IT!

I was in Riverhead on business during a weeknight before Christmas. I noticed a lot of locals and what I assumed were the owners chatting and visiting. Made me wish that I was local! :) The food was plentiful and good.

Found this place on tripadvisor while I was in town and decided to grab some dinner. Sat at the bar and enjoyed some seafood bisque and clams. The bisque was delicious and the shrimp were so soft, they would literally melt in your mouth. Clams were great too. Make sure to get the bread to dip it in the sauce.... More

We sat at the bar and chatted with the bartender. I can't remember his name but he was great. Awesome selection of seafood on the menu. We each had a bowl of French onion soup, we had mussels something and clams casino. All great. Right on the bay. Definitely recommend

I liked the bar. They do have a few good local beers on tap, which is nice.The food seemed ok. I will say that the prices of the drinks was NOT cheap. $22+ (without tip) for a Bud bottle, a local draft beer and a glass of wine is a little pricey for Riverhead, IMO. Staff was pleasant. If you... More
