Great bar upstairs

Everything anyone could want in a bar. Outdoor area, couch comfortable seating, live music and pool tables off to the side. Friendly if a little slow service.

Fantastic food, in a unique atmosphere. Some same it's a bit pricey. .. no more then most restaurants. Higher quality of food. Great for a relaxing family meal. We have been going for 7 years now.

We came to CM for dinner on Saturday night. A little smaller than the other CM we have been to but we didnt mind. We started out on the roof deck but soon the bugs started to have their way with the little one and our waitress moved us right inside with no problems. The cheese and crackers are always... More

My girlfriend and I exited off rt. 93 and drove right by this resraurant. We saw their company store gift shop. After driving 3 miles, we asked for help and found out the place was across from gift shop. Tim was our waiter and was very nice. Our meals were nice but, nothing special. We have been to their restaurant... More

The Common Man provides great food and plenty of it. There is a crackers and two kinds of cheese spread bar (and there is more crackers) and a cheese wheel upstairs. The early bird special is between 5:00 and 6:00 PM with most dinners at half price and half the serving size -- but don't worry! Our meals, pulled pork... More

Wonderful food, quaint and rustic interior. We had a very nice server, Brittany. Steak tips and pot roast were out choices and excellent. You get unlimited cheese and crackers before your meal comes out. This is the original Comman Man restaurant. If you are in the area, be sure to stop in.

We went to Common Man for dinner on 31 July. We waited about 10 min before a waiter came to our table. When he did, he took our drink order - and then we had to go looking for him. 20 min )no joke) and no contact. When he brought the drinks - one was wrong ( his admitted mistake)... More

Stopped in for dinner and a drink last night around 6:30. The place was not very busy at this time, my friend and I sat at the bar with 2-3 other couples. The male bartender eventually greeted us and took our drink order. After this initial interaction we had to ask for everything...could he take our dinner order, could we... More
