“A Long Time Coming, but Worth It.”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

This Theater Experience has been in the works for many years. Finally complete and opened it shows the painstaking effort by a few for the benefit of many. WOW what a great restoration. Everything is perfect. The bar on the main floor, the seating choices from dinner venue to regular theater seating. I would like to see a Hamptons director stepping in with a local theater company but for now a varied entertainment schedule will do. The drinks were good, appetizers good, but the main course choices were limited.
The evenings entertainment food and drinks around $150. A far cry from the $400 plus for Manhattan. Short drive ample parking. It will be worth watching how this GEM continues to evolve. I'll go back. Steve

“Fun evening out”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

The Suffolk Theater is a gem in downtown Riverhead. The entertainment that is there is so enjoyable and the food is good. We have seen a few shows there and will go again. They do have tables and you can have dinner or just sit, enjoy the show and have a drink. Servers come to take your order. The theater has been redone to the period that is originated from and it is beautiful. So nice to have a venue of this caliber in our area!!

“Beautiful Restoration”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Stepping back in time here to the Art Deco period when movie houses were palaces. Cabaret style seating with wait staff busy all night long bringing food and drinks to the patrons. We just had drinks with the show, but service was very good. Not Broadway, but a nice alternative to long drive to Westbury or LIRR to NYC.

“Once they get the kinks out........”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

A beautifully renovated theater with the ambience of a 1940's dinner theater (minus the cigarette smoke). Service needs some improvement but it is a roomy comfortable theater with good acoustics and a large bar. I look forward to future shows.

“Unique place to go, hope it stays.”
Reviewed 22 December 2013 via mobile

Just went to the Polar Express Christmas showing at the suffolk theater. It was wonderful. It was my first time there since the major renovation has taken place. I gave it a four based on decor and atmosphere. I will return and I hope I can give it five for the food and service. The place is beautiful and it needs to do well and become an anchor for Main Street. It's a dinner theater theme and the quality of the shows and food will determine if it does well. But today it was great and the service very good. Stay tuned.
