We happened to pass this little place while out looking for a new restaurant to eat at. After driving for a while, we turned around to give it a try. Amazing! We were seated in a spacious and quaint room surrounded by large windows overlooking...More

Ate at the bar and service was great. Found out the hard way that the word "Lite Fare" on the menu means small; not less calories. Had the fish and chips ( my choice, no fries ), and left hungry. For 15 bucks this should...More

We stopped in on a whim after a long day. We ate down cellar and were pleasantly surprised. The barmaid was doing double duty, tending the bar and waiting on tables. The waitresses had to run up and down stairs for food and drinks. The...More

Imaginative new offerings with a new executive Chef. Imaginative but offerings everyone would enjoy. Some restaurants try to awe you with fancy ingredients with unknown names - this one has unique offerings but things you would want to try again and even make at home....More

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.

Decided on this place mainly because it was walking distance from the Hampton Inn. The food is great, prices are reasonable and our server was friendly and helpful! I had the day's special - grilled salmon, shrimp and scallops on a bed of garlic aioli...More
