Nice place in riverhead

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

This place hasn't changed in decades. Not even the booths. They were built when people were much smaller. I am 200 lbs and already uncomfortable. The food hasn't changed in decades either. As basic as it gets. Burger on--Burger off. This place could be really cool but just doesn't cut it

We were here for a yummy breakfast on Wednesday morning with the food served quickly, politely and made to order. Nice establishment.

Catch them while they are open, the hours are limited. Great little spot to grab a bite to eat. I love their grill cheese, its almost made just right - a litle crispy!

Went here in April with some family. They had delicious burger platters, chicken club sandwich and homemade chicken noodle soup. My only complaints are that it doesn't hold many people, we came in a group of 6 and had to be split between two booths across from each other, and the booths are a bit of a tight squeeze. Don't...
