This casual restaurant offers the east end's freshest catch without the stuffy Hamptons vibe. The restaurant's mussels can't be beat. The salads and side dishes to the various local catches are delicious as well. They also offer steaks and cocktails all at reasonable prices.

this is rated number 1 in Riverhead by trip advisor. What are they smoking?This should be at the bottom not the top.Mediocrity!!!! The food is at the level of McDonalds. Interior is cold and dank. Heavily fried food all tastes the same. Only bright spot was the cheery waitress. Do NOT believe the rating.

We have driven by this delightful restarant/bar for decades without stopping in. The excellent reviews and a yen for fresh seafood caused us to try it. You have to look for it as it's a bit hidden, it's immediately adjacent to the Hyatt Hotel (Jerry's is not part of the hotel.) We were immediately pleased. Prompt, friendly service who seemed...

My wife and I had an excellent seafood dinner. The fish was fresh and cooked to perfection. We had "mussels Luciano style" as an appetizer which was absolutely delicious. Our rum punch drinks were perfect. Had a table on the outside deck which had a nice view of the river. Waitress was fantastic. Jerry was outside and asked if we... More

Great seafood, freshly made, friendly service. Best seafood bisque I've ever had...I could have made a meal out of that and a salad. I had some yummy fried bay scallops and sweet potato fries. Only reason this review isn't a five-star is because I really hated their Cole slaw, which is made with pickled red cabbage. It's super-casual, wear your... More

Jerry and the Mermaid is well decorated with nautical décor and a large screen TV. We enjoyed sitting on the back "porch area". The food was yummy, the service very good and the casual atmosphere to our liking.
