“Awesome service, excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

We went to this restaurant twice, once for dinner and the second time for lunch. Both time we got excellent food and even better service! Try their chicken breast stuffed with cheese and apples or their meatloaf. Prices were very reasonable

“The Price Was Right but Not the Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2011

The food quality and prices were decent, for the most part. Avoid the rice and, also, the pork entree. The server made frequent errors, apparently due neglecting to write the details of each diner's order. The mandatory 20% tip for parties over five people did not set well in view of the poor service.

“Quantity Over Quality with a Scenic View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2011

Located in downtown Exeter the restaurant has a great view of the interesting dam and river. The upstairs was less than half full but having only one hard working waiter was insufficient. Simple, inexpensive menu choices abound but the quantity of the portions exceeds the quality except for the small salad which was fresh & excellent. Reasonable prices for a glass of wine or beer. Suitable for couples or families. Downstairs has a bar area which has sometimes flooded in early spring when the river runs high.

“Get rid of the smell”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

Great Food, fun views, fun lower level service in the lower pub where we attended....but the smell of dirty dishwater and sewer combined must go. I was there last year and the only difference was the smell of bleach also. My family agrees, and has been there several times before, and asked me about the smell. Once that is worked out, I wouldnot have a complaint. Goood luck will come back but will walk out if smell is still there.

“A Wonderful Place to Dine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2011

We met out of state friends in Exeter and chose 11 Water St. Restaurant for lunch. It was our first time there. The service was friendly, the menu was varied and interesting, and the meals were wonderful. We never felt rushed as we ate and visited for a 2 hour lunch. We will always go to the restaurant when we're in town and we wished they'd move to Bedford, NH.
A must stop when you are in Exeter!
