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!

We enjoyed delicious appetizers and desserts in this clean and nicely decorated, restaurant. It is located in downtown Exeter--convenient to downtown shopping and strolling by the river. Our waiter was terrific--offering suggestions and had an enjoyable sense of humor. The Roasted Beet salad and the Fried Crimini mushrooms were both fabulous and big enough for sharing. The desserts were enjoyable... More

We were staying in Exeter for the evening and asked our hotel front desk to recommend a place to eat. She told us that 11 Water Street was a very good, locally owned restaurant. We didn't arrive until after 8pm but were greeted warmly. The food was amazing! We had the fried crimini mushrooms which put all previously consumed fried... More

After we got a feeling of being unwelcome at the Blue Moon Evolution (I think it was ugly shorts night, accompanied by a mismatched floral shirt--something we were not dressed for) 11 Water Street was our second choice, but it was a good one. The roast beef sandwich was excellent (this was real roast beef, not the lunch meat variety)... More
