I went there today for lunch with two others and as usual each of our meals were delicious. The portions were more than satisfying. It was very busy and a lot of kids were there which is not typical. I think because the kids have off this week and the restaurant is a very short walk from the aquarium where... More

Today was was a beautiful sixty degrees in New York, in February! We decided to visit the Long Island Aquarium. It was around 1:30 and the line into the aquarium was very long. We were hungry and decided to eat first before going to the aquarium. We decided to try Jerry's. I am so glad we did. We expected clam... More

Stopped in for late lunch. Found the place small with large menu of appetizers and small main course choice. The food ended up being average. The waffle fries are huge.if you like waffle style fries this place is your place. If you like other things don't expect to many of the best ones here, but rather average.

The best coconut shrimp ever and according to my bf the best baked clams ever. I also love the artichoke hearts francaise. The only thing I didn't love was the Greek salad, it left much to be desired. It wasn't a real Greek salad, just some spring salad with feta cheese and black olives...will never order that again but will... More

Ate dinner here while spending the night at the Hyatt next door. Had baked clams and wings for appetizers. Wings were very good, but the molasses (?) taste was a little overpowering so after eating two wings I had enough. I thought the baked clams were good but my husband thought they were a little too bready. For dinner, my... More

We went here after going to the aquarium. My son as a local recommended this restaurant. He has been here many times and told me it was a great place. He was right. We walked over the 1 block from the aquarium and when we walked in at 5pm the front room was filled as was the bar area. I... More

HIGHLY recommend the artichoke appetizer. Order two, a bottle of wine and some bread and you are in for a treat! Jerry is a delight and a gracious host. LOVED IT!
