Arrived in Exeter too late for dinner, but loved the setting. Made reservations for dinner with whole family for next night and we're not disappointed. Menu offered something for everyone, including the more discerning foodies. My grilled Scottish salmon and risotto was perfect. Desserts were great too.

We first visited 11 Water St. on a very snowy night because it is within walking distance from where we live and because most other restaurants in town were closed because of the weather. When we arrived we were the only patrons in the dining room so got very personal attention which was nevertheless professional. The dining room and bar... More
