Old Time Diner! We had breakfast here and it was good. Your typical standard fare in an old time place. Huge tin ceilings, a bar counter, booths, etc. The wait staff was nice. It felt like a local hang out.

If you are into authentic old style ice cream parlors, this is the place to go. Fondly known to locals as "Uncle Nick's" it has been at the same location, owned by the same family, serving up the same quality items for decades. The checkerboard square flooring, the tin type ceiling and the stools are not decorative add ons, they... More

The staff was very welcoming and the food was oh so good!!!! It was like stepping back in time when the simple things mattered. We also took home some solid chocolate Easter bunnies that the owner makes by hand. They have been in business for almost a 100 years at the same location. If you are in Riverhead for Jury... More

Nothing fancy but definitely visit rather than going to one of chains. Had fried sole sandwich, excellent. Fresh ice cream as well.

Delicious pancakes grilled with butter. Good service. Casual and comfy. Arrive on the early side or expect a line. Homemade chocolate candy is a bonus reason to visit this cute part of riverhead

Ever since I was a young girl, Star Confectionery was a destination for french fries and a vanilla coke after the movies. It continues to be a destination for anyone visiting the downtown area.

It has been here forever and has never changed. I brought my kids here decades ago when they were little for breakfast before or lunch after Splish Splash, Tanger Mall, Aquarium, Harbes around Halloween, or for a treat. They loved their grilled cheese sandwiches and we loved their burgers and triple decker sandwiches, but everything staying the same is not... More

this place has been family owned ever since I worked at Riverhead in the 40's. Old time tin ceiling. Soda fountain seating and booths. Popular spot

The ambiance is old school-cool as you would expect. The food, however, is nothing to write home about. They serve your usual basic fare - scrambled eggs, home fries, french toast, coffee. None of it tasted great enough to merit a special visit to this place. They have high chairs, but I think you can only use them with the... More
