Charming restaurant in a charming town. The downstairs pub is a little more casual. The server and bartender were both helpful in telling us about the menu and the goings on outside their large picture windows. Apparently the dam had been removed and there was a big project underway to re-route the river. The view was not the greatest as... More

Casual and comfortable. We had the steak tips (with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus) and the fish & chips. Both meals were excellent and filling.

I tried this restaurant at the advice of the B&B innkeeper. I'm glad I did & returned the next night for a repeat dinner with a friend. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of my Panini and how stuffed it was. I can eat & it was difficult to finish the sandwich. The next night, because we were dining... More

Wasn't really sure, walking in on a Saturday evening at 8 and there were no other guests. Turns out everyone in town was down at the local fireworks show. The atmosphere is a little rustic and staff is very friendly, if a little rustic as well. The food and the service were both excellent. Absolutely fresh ingredients, expertly handled and... More

We have eaten here many, many times for family and business meals because we loved the food, the view, and the atmosphere. That being said, we have recently noticed a decline in the service and the quality of the food. We've spoken to the management, but unfortunately, we were not convinced that things are going to change. Truly unfortunate!

Stopped by along our way from VT to ME. Took a chance and was rewarded with a satisfying lunch. We had a salad w steak tips (yum). There is a view of water in the back. Place was comfortably AC'd. Waitress was attentive and friendly. We were sat immediately.

Went to 11 water street for a business dinner. I ordered the bistro steak medium rare. It came out well done. Usually I would suck it up and deal with it but because it was so over cooked for the price I sent it back. I am a former chef and personally I would have never have sent something out... More

I have been here once and sat at the bar. The bar was very busy and loud on a Saturday night. The food was good; service as ok.
