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

Two weeks before my son's wedding, I found out that the place I had booked for a post wedding brunch for 86 people had closed with no notification! To say the least, I was frantic. I called Jerry and the Mermaid to see whether they would do a special event brunch. Jerry, Sr. and Jerry, Jr. could not have been... More

Stopped here by chance after reading a few good reviews when we were already in Riverhead and looking for somewhere to eat. Everyone enjoyed it. Great variety on the menu and reasonable prices. Good food and portions.

We ate at this restaurant and ordered the Shrimp Parmesan. It was fettuccine with butterflied breaded shrimp, covered with cheese and with an outstanding red sauce. Really really yummy.

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.
