We had a large work group and went here for dinner. We had the stuffed grouper special and a watermelon drink special. Also, they had toasted coconut creme brûlée for the special dessert which was amazing. We talked to Jerry and told him that the...More

Jerry and the Mermaid. Mediocre food at best and VERY expensive drinks. Not much atmosphere and can get very loud and rowdy. Would not go back. Unfriendly bartenders, they act like they don't care if you enjoy your experience there or not. Don't waste your...More

Decided to try this restaurant based on the reviews posted on Trip Advisor. We had the opportunity to sit outside, which was a nice option on a late spring day. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive. The calamari was good. The cheeseburgers were cooked...More

I was a bit early and they were waiting for their chef. I had the Fish & Chips. The food was good. They had several TV’s—it was fun watching TV. I went early to beat the lunch crowd.

We were staying at the Hyatt, which is right next door, and ate here twice. The food was straightforward, unpretentious and tasty. Nice friendly staff and atmosphere so we’d recommend this restaurant as a good place to have lunch or dinner.More

Thought the food would be good here, but was disappointed. Not a value for the money. The New England clam chowder while portending to be homemade, did not impress. The fish and chips, while cooked well, also did not impress.More

Jeff, I'm sorry to hear you didn't have the greatest experience with us recently. The fish & chips is a simplistic dish that most people have a predisposition on what they are about to receive. We aren't trying to reinvent a classic, just put out...More

They do take reservations. There are plenty of eateries in downtown Riverhead within walking distance but Jerry's is the best. You won't go hungry there.
