There is a good and varied menu here, and it is generally very well executed. My wife and I have eaten here a number of times, and generally enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and service. The only downside was one server, who was attentive and brought things quickly, and a decent guy, but he had no finesse, often banging dishes down... More

I can always count on a great meal for lunch or dinner. There isn't a lot of variety or change to the menu but the regular dishes are very good. Good for groups or a couple's meal. One of the top spots in town!

Went for lunch. Food was great. Service was great. Loved the view of the river below. I would definitely go again if visiting Exeter, NH.

I came here for a wedding rehearsal dinner with of course a big party. The majority of us had the steak tips. Plenty of meat and super tender and juicy. A must try! Service was wonderful as was the beautiful water view.

Stopped by this somewhat small restaurant because a local brewery said they'd have their beers on tap. They didn't in the end but they had 4-5 good options on tap and a great menu, including delicious home made gnocchi. The vegetarian portions were significantly smaller than the others but all very good.

This was not our original destination to dine but we decided to give 11 Water St. a shot and we were very happy we did. Started in the downstairs Bar, not to be missed, Mike the bartender made great drinks and the atmosphere sitting right on the river was beautiful. The bar furniture could use some updating but the service... More

We were looking for a quick place to stop in after a Christmas parade, but many of the fast-food locations were packed. This little place was so cute and quaint with wonderful food! There were lots of families with younger kids so I'm assuming they had a kids menu. our family visit had only adults. The warm rolls with herb... More

A great place for a relaxing evening with friends. The downstairs bar is much warmer, friendly atmosphere - upstairs is more sparsely decorated. The food is consistently good though when they change their menu seasonally they seem to eliminate some of the long time favorites. Their salad and sandwiches could use some tuning up in terms of the combinations and... More
