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:)

Ordered a Casar salad..not much dressing mixed in. My girlfriend thought it was bland. I also had Johnny Cakes..don't waist your ti me e on them.
Girlfriend ordered Corn Chowder, we both thought it was very tasty.

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.

Food was very unremarkable to disappointing. Wait staff was very poorly trained in service etiquette and how to serve wine, deliver the check (no pen for paying with credit card!!), and reading the table.

Hubby and I had a wonderful laid back lunch on the patio. Beautiful day/beautiful spot with plenty of shade. Food was delish. We had corn chowder and the crab sandwich which came with sinfully good fries. Service was great. We are glad you reopened. We will be back.

Another outstanding Sunday Brunch at the Exeter Inn! We had a reservation, but were needlessly concerned when we saw Epoch bustling with guests upon arrival. A couple of large private parties, post-wedding night breakfasters turned out to be no distraction for the dining room staff and kitchen. Our food was served promptly by Chantal, our very professional and friendly server. Everything was delicious. We'll be back soon.

Outstanding from start to finish. Loved the corn chowder, the brown bread, my fish and chips and the Sticky Toffee Pudding. Can’t wait to go back and try the other things on the menu I wanted. Nice atmosphere and excellent servers too.

While our server and the bartender, Chantal and Travis, took great care of us, the service was very slow even though the restaurant was not crowded. Was also surprised that the kitchen had never heard of a grilled English Muffin.

We'll definitely be back to try dinner but miss the brunch buffet and the better service of the past. I understand that Epoch is re-opening after months of being used as PEA campus housing and dining, so perhaps it's a readjustment to service oriented business, but was slightly disappointed.

Deidra was a great waitress, martinis were good, cheese board good, mussels good, steak frites really good but a tad pricey. Dessert was sticky toffee pudding with a huge silky smooth cup of coffee. Great meal, each course was done very well. Lots of fun, we’ll be back.
