We have come here twice in the past 2 Months!

Great view, staff, food, and atmosphere. We have visited 2 times in the past 2 months. The food is just amazing. The frites app is the best, in fact come here for the frites, pretend you are in Belgium.

You can eat upstairs overlooking the Exeter River. You can eat downstairs in the bar, which is what we always do! TV on with sports. Food is pretty reliably good.

This restaurant is a hidden jewel. The food and service is excellent. A small cozy intimate dining area overlooking the Exeter river to the damn. The entrees can be on the higher price, but the offer smaller portions at a more budget friendly price that are equally as tantalizing to the taste buds. If you find yourself in the downtown...

This is my "go-to" for lunch with the girls. Great menu, even my gluten-free friend has plenty to choose from. Great salads but the burgers tend to be a little under-done, so keep that in mind. The menu changes which keeps in interesting. Love the teeny-tiny bar downstairs with an up-close look at the exeter river.

My husband and I went to 11 Water Street for our anniversary dinner and really enjoyed it! The mojitos were excellent and we had a great table with wonderful views of the river! I had the Cobb salad and it was OK, we look forward to visiting again and trying the filet! My husband loved his meal!

We decided to try 11 Water Street after lots of great reviews. We found a perfect riverside table in the downstairs bar and enjoyed great cold draft beers. When the bartender brought the menus, they were tattered and worn - always a warning signal to me. My husband ordered meatloaf and I chose the winter squash ravioli. His meal was... More

We often eat here during the year. The food is great and the service wonderful. Have had most items on the light bites menu all great and a few off the full entree menu and never been disappointed. The staff is like family here. View of the river is great.

Great food and service. A nice selection to choose from - from light meals to something for a more special occasion. Will be back for sure when we are in Exeter next. Normally desserts in restaurants are way too sweet for me and I normally pass but this time I am so glad I didn't as the Italian Lemon Cake... More

Had lunch in the restaurant with friends and had a lovely corner table overlooking the water. All of us ordered the special sandwich of the day and it was delicious, grilled chicken with pesto! service was good. The waiter had a great sense of humor and was attentive! Good place to grab lunch while out shopping in downtown Exeter, NH!
