Went to Jerrys with family, Had some awesome crunchy wings with waffle fries. Sat outside and overlooked all the boats in the marina. Really good glass of German beer to go with it all. Nice experience.

Good food, ample portions, great service but wine is pricey for such a small pour. We arrived without a reservation and were seated right away. However, it was still early(6:30pm) for a Saturday night. Restaurant became very busy later.

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.
