We had lunch here after visiting the aquarium. Every single staff member was friendly and welcoming. Our server Meghan was terrific and gave lots of attention to our young niece. The food was great and very reasonably priced. Portions were generous.

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.
