Pleasant pub atmosphere. Attentive service, fair prices and good food. We had shrimp scampi very garlicky and tasty and a broiled seafood platter with fish, shrimp scallops and baked clams. Warm buttery rolls. What else do you need?

Jerry & The Mermaid is a very nice restaurant in Riverhead, NY. The seafood selections are plentiful. The Clam Chowder (Manhattan and New England) were outstanding. The linguine with clam sauce was outstanding. When in Riverhead have dinner at Jerry & The Mermaid.More

Took two groups here and each person got really fresh fish cooked perfectly. Clams were fresh and shucked cleanly--no bits of shell. Pleasant staff. Nic bar. And Jerry came by each visit and chatted. He cares and it shows.

Stopped for lunch on arrival to Riverhead. Sadly the weather wasn't great but nice view of the inlet with boats. Fish and chips and clams casino were tasty. The clam chowder was delicious.

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.
