Had a delightful dinner with my two toddlers - staff was helpful and very friendly, and I was so tired. When my 3-year old starting singing Happy Birthday, the owner came out with ice ream and a candle. Great place.

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.
