Great Atmosphere, good food!

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised to find this romantic little spot in Claremont! We sat outside on the patio, right on the water, with some old, historic buildings in the backdrop. We love the cheese and crackers before the meal. I enjoyed my chicken cordon bleu, while my husband enjoyed... read more

We've been to the Common Man in Claremont many times now, and you know, we've never had a snag-free meal there. This restaurant has a beautiful setting, and the food is OK, but the service is so consistently poor that we have decided it is a matter of bad management and training. The servers all seem to be hurrying about... More

Reservations are required. You are taken at the time of your reservation. Entertainment was very nice. Service was excellent, food was good. Surroundings were lovely.

Every visit has been pleasant. We love getting cheese and crackers from the cheese bar as we wait for our food. I love the macaroni and cheese, salads, pot roast, stuffed chicken...well everything I have tried so far. I also love that it is right on the river, the view is wonderful!

On vacation at nearby Ascutney Mountain, VT, we made the short trip to Claremont, NH for dinner here one evening. It was one of the highlights of our vacation dining. The quaint location, an old mill on the Sugar River, is a lovely setting. The patio seating overlooking the river looked very inviting, although it was too cool to sit... More

Our experience here was great. The food was perfect and there were many options. Although it was a little pricey, it was worth every dollar. Will eat here again when we return.

This is a really neat restaurant. It is in an old mill-like building near a river. You can sit outside or inside. They serve complimentary cheese & crackers also. In the restaurant, one area of the floor is open with glass and you can see the river underneath the building.. very cool. The food was great. It has a nice... More

Have eaten here many times. Food is consistent in quality. Understaffed at times so dining experience is drawn out at times.

I've tried this restaurant 3 times - a Saturday afternoon, a late Sunday afternoon, and a Thursday night. All three times the service was incredibly slow - from taking our order to delivering the food to getting the check. I was there at least two hours on the Thursday night I ate there - we did not have drinks and... More
