"Jerry and the Mermaid" is an excellent fish restaurant in rRverhead, NY. I have been going there for a wonderful dinner for the past few years when shopping at the Riverhead Tanger outlet, where I stay overnight with my sister. The service is gracious. Jerry himself always comes over to the table to chat, suggest something and see that all... More

My family has a beach house near downtown Riverhead, and my friend and I were in town visiting my parents. My father grew up in Riverhead and I grew up a few towns over, however, we have never been to this place. We figured we would give it a shot since it received decent reviews. We couldn't have been more... More

food was pretty good. There isn't a huge menu but is enough to help everyone find something. The place is super small so you might want to call for reservations if they will take it. The parking is a bit small too.

Awesome place with great food and good prices. Staff and owner (Jerry) were wonderful. We had the seafood broiled combo with drinks. Service was fast and friendly. We'll be back on our next visit!

Younger Jerry, executive chef, knows how to provide great food at reasonable prices!! Sara was a perfect bartender. Both Jerry and Sara made us feel like we were at home and not visitors. Oh my, the clam chowder was to die for!! The clams sooo good. We only had appetizers on our 2 visits only due to our schedule. We... More

Can't say enough about this place! Hubby so enjoyed his steamer clams; they were just as good as he remembered from boyhood! I had a tasty spring roll appetizer (a bit too salty though)! @

My boyfriend and I come here maybe once every two months. We love seafood and everything on there menu is excellent! Fresh and made to order! However we come for the Chicken Franchise, It is out of this world! Everytime we eat here the owner has always swung by the table or bar just to check in on us and,... More

This place is a neighborhood gem. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food in such a casual setting. We sat outside facing the bay adjacent to the aquarium. Jerry comes over 2 or 3 times to make sure everything is good. I had the crispy duck wings and sesame crusted tuna steak. Both were outstanding. My husband... More
