We had a great time at this down-to-earth touristy dive bar in the parking lot of the Hyatt. They had karoake and pretty good bar food. Good time.

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.
