I've never been disappointed here. Especially recommend the turkey w/ cranberry sandwich. Pick a favorite bread and they probably have it. Plenty of vegetarian choices and the soups are filling with or without a sandwich. Prices are very reasonable.

What a find! Met an old friend here. Started in the 'courtyard' in front which is a very pleasant setting. Moved inside to eat. Seemed like I wrote the menu - just about everything offered was something I would love. Means I will go back many times. Had the meatloaf sandwich - very good. Did not have soup, but we... More

I have been several times a year to Green Bean but my favorite is in the Fall to get a delicious bowl of homemade soup!!

Stopped here for lunch with my mother. Had the "Thanksgiving" sandwich or that's what I think it was called. Very flavorful and filling. Staff was very nice and it was pretty steady with customer traffic. Keep up the great work.

Best place in town for soup salad and sandwiches. Came here on a Saturday with 5 other girls and had pumpkin soup and the turkey cranberry and stuffing half sandwich (my favorite). Oh yeah and had a yummy double brown beer to boot. Nice vibe and view of the newly removed dam and stream channel. Check it out.

Nice in town spot. We had sandwiches to go. They were both very good. The soups looked great, maybe next time. We would go back.

Exeter is a quaint New Hampshire town and the Green Bean is typical of the town's charm. We always enjoy the food and the atmosphere, both inside the restaurant and at one of the outdoor tables under a beautifully thick tree canopy. The sandwiches, wraps, salads and soups are all excellent. The food is prepared quickly as patrons move through... More

The Green Bean has a good variety and fast service with vegetarian options. A great spot for a lunch time bite. Busy and fast paced. Order and grab a table.

Usually very busy lunch business serving soups and sandwiches of high quality. Service is provided to patrons as they pass by in a line. Food is very good.

The food at the Green Bean is very good, the service is just ok. Generally the staff behind the counter seem stressed out and annoyed to be serving you. And I think they could be a little more efficient at how you order and check out. Even when its mostly empty, it takes forever to get down the line and... More
