The buffalo chicken fingers are fantastic, you can get them mild or hot and they are the best. Waffle fries also a favorite, and try the fried artichokes, delicious. Full service bar with all sorts of drink specials.

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.
