Stopped in for drinks and dinner, did not disappoint! Sausage app was flavorful, tasty. Chicken sandwich entree was super, loved the roll- tenderloin cooked well done first time , wasn't a problem sending it back - felt bad for waitress, place was packed the night we were there. Vanilla ice cream for dessert, great portion!

We met up with one of our couple friends. We met an hour prior to our reservation to have a drink in the bar area and chat since we hadn't seen each other in a while. Our server in the bar area was not much for conversation. He seemed to breeze in to ask the order then would leave...not sure... More

Love coming to the Exeter Inn because we know we will have a great meal at Epoch! The menu uses Farm fresh local ingredients and they have great local beers on tap. I suggest getting a flight so you can try several.

Met up with friends to try out this restaurant. Before going, I wasn't sure what to wear since the I heard it was upscale casual. I ended up wearing a nice pair of jeans and sweater and that was just fine. There were people dressed up a bit fancier and bit less, so it was perfect. We met beforehand for... More

A lot of restaurants have occupied this space in the Exeter Inn; this one is head and shoulders above all of the previous iterations. The food - breakfast, lunch, and dinner - is very good-to-terrific; with one or two discordant exceptions, the service is friendly and first-rate.

I have often eaten at the bar... good if you're on your own, which I can be as I have often had business in Exeter. We have had numerous family dinners here, included some special occasions. One year we had a great Mothers Day brunch. This was pricey but worth it. On regular occasions the restaurant is expensive for New... More

Service was excellent - staff aimed to please. Creative menu, although a bit of an odd combination of offerings. One of our dishes (the mahi tuna) was way too salty and the poutine with duck confit was disappointing. Our server responded very professionally to our complaint on the too salty dish and we were not charged for the dish. That... More

a reliable place for a quiet dinner. Half-plates available for those wanting a light dinner. Service is usually attentive but often a wait for entrees. Reservations are accepted.

What to say here, this is a hotel restaurant with some clear talent in the kitchen, but needs a bit more attention to detail and this perhaps could then be an excellent restaurant. My wife and I tried Epoch for the first time during restaurant week. We've always wanted to go, and the chef put a nice menu together. The... More
