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

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

We’ve been to the Common Man in Claremont NH several times for lunches and dinners. Dinners out on the patio at night overlooking the river were spectacular. We had one wonderful lunch there as well. The following three lunches reviled serious issues with service. Today, we were seated by the shift manager and she was over-the-top polite to the point... More

I'd searched the web for "brunch" this Sunday morning and I found the Claremont NH Common Man. Since we've been there for other very good meals and love the facility (beautifully restored old mill building on the river), we drove down there for brunch this morning. Imagine our surprise when our very pleasant waitress wrinkled her brow, asked yus what... More

Although we've been to the Common Man in Claremont several times over the past few years, I've deferred writing a review until now. That's because every time we go there, something always seems to go wrong. Long delays, cold food, questionable entrees, incorrect bill, mediocre service, etc. And what goes wrong is not that bad because we do go back... More

We had dinner at the Common Man while staying at the Inn. We are very familiar with the Common Man restaurants and knew what to expect. We started with the "Almost Escargot" ( mushrooms in garlic butter and broiled with cheese. These were wonderful. My husband had the crab cakes with lobster sauce. He thought they were very good and... More
