River is the main draw. Food and service very average. Wait staff inexperienced, food was simple and plain. Interior decor lacking. View of the rushing river is excellent: gulls, herons and osprey fishing. Will try other restaurants in Exeter before coming here again.

They always have great plates. My boyfriend and I really enjoy going for lunch or dinner. The mashed potatoes are fabulous.

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!
