Describe your business:
Located on the beautiful Peconic Riverfront in the heart of downtown Riverhead, Joe’s Garage and Grill promises to please any crowd. Upon entering, visitors are greeted by authentic décor, historical memorabilia from the community as well as hand painted murals from floor to ceiling.
“We’re all about ‘homemade’ here at Joe’s and we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver dishes from scratch at affordable prices,” said Marketing Manager Brianca Mazo. “Generous portions of East End comfort food will have you leaving full and racing back when you’re empty.”
Joe’s Garage and Grill specializes in the craft of meat curing and smoking; all of the meats used at the restaurant are cured and smoked in-house, all year long.
Prior to opening their doors in March of 2014, the taste testers consisted of just about anyone who wanted to try the food.
“We’ve dedicated our time and effort to creating a menu with dishes that we’re proud to say were chosen by people just like you,” said Mazo.
The restaurant also has a full bar, from cocktails and ‘mocktails’ to a local craft beer and wine selection. Patrons can choose to hang out at the bar or bring the good times outside. The restaurant’s garage doors open up to a heated patio.
“We tried to create a unique scene to meld our inside and outside dining areas together for the perfect marriage between the garage experience and classic East End waterfront ambiance,” said Mazo.
And no garage would be complete without live music flowing through it.
“We support local musicians by offering a selection of local live artists several nights a week,” said Mazo.
Joe’s Garage and Grill supports East End businesses by preferring to use as many local ingredients as possible.
“We believe firmly in the ‘farm to table’ concept,” said Mazo, “Our participation in local festivals, fairs, fundraisers, charity and awareness events have brought us even closer to our Riverhead and North Fork neighbors, and it is with great excitement that we continue our involvement with a community that many of us also call, home.”
