The place was understaffed (as are many right now) but they were kind, courteous and HUSTLING! The food was delicious and everyone was just so friendly and energetic! I'll most definitely be back.

My dinner at Epoch was lovely. I dined solo, as a guest at the Inn, and was pleased by the attentive service, appealing menu, and delicious food. Thanks for taking good care of me.

Delicious food, wonderful waitress. Very small portions of fish/meat but I think that’s an issue at all restaurants right now. Will be back for sure.

We have had the brick chicken before, but this time it was disappointing. Brick chicken should be very browned, and this was more like roasted chicken with very light browning. The squash, kale, and potatoes seemed to have been mixed together and cooked under the chicken since they all tasted the same. A waste!

Erik, our server, was excellent. He was attentive but not hovering. He gave us time when we needed it but was prompt when we didn’t. Pushing extras a bit harder than we would have liked but backed off quickly when we showed no interest.

The soup, Butternut Squash was outstanding. Thank you, The crabcake was too salty as were the french fries, I could not eat either after two bites.

Like most restaurants during COVID, they were very short staffed. Our waiter did fine for having so many tables, but forgot one of our soup appetizers. The food was good, but overly salty. Also disappointed that the online menus listed a seafood stew, while they had replaced it with corn chowder.

This was the least satisfactory visit to Epoch that we have had in several years. 3 of us (out of 4) had mussels. These were not sufficiently cooked as 1/4 to 1/3 in 2 of the 3 plates were not open... that is, they were not completely cooked.

In addition, the server had too many tables to attend to and was less attentive to us than we have experienced in the past.

Enjoyed a delicious Sunday Brunch at the hands of friendly and professional server Dierdre. We were fortunate to get an outdoor table in a season when the weather is turning a bit cooler. We'll be back soon!

Short, simple and specific are fewer than 50 characters!
Three dinners and one brunch during our say at Exeter Inn and the foregoing review covers them all. Would appreciate a few more options to vary the menu. But the waitstaff is efficient and hard working.'
Overall, Very Good.

We are regulars at Epoch for Sunday Brunch. Decided to have dinner with friends in the outdoor dining space. Our foursome was most hospitably served by Bethany, always the consummate pro. We asked for drink, entree and dessert recommendations. Bethany recommended salmon and chicken under a brick. We had two of each and were completely satisfied by the hot, delicious entrees. Peach cobbler to finish up was also a big hit. We'll be back again soon.

Bartender was great
Finally got table after our reservation was given away.
After seated, Waited 35 minutes before a waitress ( whom I don’t think was ours) greeted us and apologized.
She was great as well.
I know people are short staffed.
That was not the issue here.
A full staff passed by us regularly with an effort not to make eye contact.
It was very weird.
Wait staff appeared aggravated and angry.
Anyway food was good.
Drinks were great
My wife says chalk it yo to Covid.
I guess
We will try again.

We have added Epoch to our permanent "go-to" list. We find that it is consistently great! The menu is very generous, the food delightful, the drinks outstanding, the staff very courteous and the ambiance is wonderful, either outside or dining in the restaurant. We can't recommend it enough:)

We had a reservation, however there were seats at the bar available. The bartender, Candy was great! The Portlandia Pinot noir was delicious and my husband really liked the Manhattan. We had the shishido peppers, grilled cheese and fish and chips. Everything was delicious but the french fries were on the cool side. We enjoyed and will definitely be back!

My boyfriend and I had a weekend away and stayed at the Exeter Inn. We had brunch on our last day, and I must say this was probably the best brunch we both ever had!! He had the chicken and waffles - which he LOVED and I had the stuffed French toast - which was absolutely delicious! The service was amazing. The staff was so friendly and attentive. We were bummed we didn’t try lunch or dinner during our stay!

The food was good and service was great. The only negative was the continual loud slamming of the door out onto the outside diners. I felt terrible for the couple seated right next to it. It slammed every few minutes all during my dinner. Only one person had the foresight to gently let it close. The servers had to have noticed it.
