Flagship restaurant of a highly successful chain.

The "C-Man" has always been a warm, cozy local favorite, especially in the cooler seasons. However, I haven't been going there often in the past few years for spending winters in Florida.

We ate a late dinner at this tavern/restaurant. I had a Bison Burger: big, tasty, and cooked correctly to my order. Wife had Uncommon Chicken, one of the tastiest poultry recipes I've ever sampled; wish the serving had been larger - OK, so I could've eaten more of it. We ordered dessert: a divine apple tart for her (my only... More

The food was delicious. We had a short wait in the upstairs cocktail lounge area. It was very comfortable and the staff was friendly and accommodating. I had the best Strawberry Daiquiri I'd had in a long time. The downstairs dining room was cozy. I enjoyed a burger with fries and my husband had the scallops. We were both pleased... More

Good food and nice personal. Nice old look, and live music some nights. If the weather is nice, be seated outside.

Have been frequenting the Common Man, Ashland for many years now. The atmosphere is relaxing and homespun. The waitstaff very polite and engaging adding to a great customer experience. and the food is, as always, superb.

We decided to eat here because of the positive reviews. We were so sorry we ate here. The food was salty, cold and over priced. I urge you not to go here.

We've been to a few of The Common Man places in NH and never leave disappointed. The menu is varied so everyone is always able to find something they prefer to eat. It's family friendly and comfortable with reasonable prices.

A large group I was traveling with recently had lunch at The Common Man in Ashland, NH and it was a most pleasant experience. This is part of a large chain of restaurants in NH and, having been to 3 others, they are all different. The decor is rustic staying with that 'Common Man' theme. Many interesting and unique articles... More

This location is the original restaurant in the cm family. Arrived for lunch and were seated immediately and beverage order taken. The menu offered soup and sandwich options, burgers, fish and healthy options. We ordered burgers and found them cooked to order. Topped it off with dessert (large portion to share). Very reasonably priced. Of all the cm locations this... More
