Try to make it to every burger night! It is every Thursday night they feature one special custom burger. You can always build your own burger.

Also the owner... More

Best in Berks! Exeter's hidden gem. My favorite apps are the coconut curry muscles and the calamari. The chicken with pears, pecans and Gorgonzola is outstanding but it's not always on the menu.

Stopped in the Arbor Inn on Friday for the first time. We were pleasantly surprised. This cozy little restaurant and a nice warm atmosphere, great service and excellent food. I tried the Basque Seafood Stew which had a flavor that was awesome. I almost forgot I was in Reading and not down the shore as it was fresh and the... More

This was my 4th visit to the Arbor Inn .. and only 1 out of 4 were we able to make it to the very crowded dining room. The other 3 we ate at the bar which is a bit less than desirable. Yet, the food was outstanding and the hamburgers fabulous!

The food is great I loved my burger!! The atmosphere and the people are great. We love this place! We didn't have a long wait for our food and the staff was always checking on us to see if we were ok. If you want an intimate restaurant this is your place!!

This is a perfect place for a perfect burger. We both got burgers. Each one was 8oz prepared to our specification and perfect. Added mushrooms on mine and wife added cheese and mushrooms on hers. Excellent. we also had the chowder which was excellant. Maybe a tad to much pepper for our taste but very good.

This is a must-go if you love food! We come here for special occasions which we want to be pampered. The food is always tremendous, and the service equals. My wife and I watch the Food Network frequently, and we heard about fish ribs (Pacu). To our surprise they were on the menu. One bite and we knew what the... More
