Love the Atmosphere

We eat dinner there quite often. I love the atmosphere, and the food is usually very good. I don't use much salt, so sometimes I find things a little salty to my taste. It's nice to have the cheese, crackers & dip to enjoy with a nice glass of wine. I do feel it is a little pricey for this... read more

We ate here because we were staying at the inn next door. The restaurant is beautiful, with high ceilings and brick walls. It has a very nice feel to it, and the food was very good. Although we were a couple and felt it was a good romantic place to eat, two families with children came in while we were... More

Thanksgiving dinner with reservation: waited 30 minutes; checked on the status of the table 3 times and were told it was being set. Down the dark stairway to the dining room, my mother fell. It could have been avoided with better lighting and yellow reflective tape. Then we met Will the waiter who was very inexperienced, smelled strongly like an... More

Recently dined on a Friday evening around 5:45 to celebrate our anniversary. Hoped for a special meal. Upon arrival, we were told that there would be a wait of 5". We sat in the waiting area looking out at the main dining room. There were only 3-4 tables of customers. Plenty of open tables and booths. We did get seated... More

Last two visits have been sophomoric at best. Service is good. Atmosphere is lovely. Food quality...I would be embarrassed to serve food this quality. Couldn't believe the squash spaghetti was on menu as 'creamy' served with so much vinegar was inedible. Sent back after one bite. Previous visit was equally poor. Guess two strikes you're out C-Man.

We were a party of 8 on Sunday around 1 p.m. The restaurant and parking area were pretty empty so we first assumed they were closed. There were only probably 10 other people dining in the restaurant. It took 15 minutes to get seated and our waitress was the bartender. She took a bit to get our drinks and one... More

Good food and I think reasonable prices. Service is friendly and timely...Nice atmosphere as well. Plus, they hosted a Bernie event, so they must be great!

Have dined here several times. The quality of food and service is hit or miss. Sometimes good, sometimes poor. Mostly the staff appear to feel that the customers are a bother.

A truly lovely dining experience in a romantic, yet classy rustic setting..the wait staff was extremely friendly and handled our orders with precision. The cocktails were tasty and just what we needed. The Lobster Mac and cheese met all expectations of a lobster mac and cheese only better. Steaming hot, melted with a cheese, crust topping and served in a... More

Have eaten at other "Common Man" restaurants in this small New Hampshire chain, the menu seems pretty similar in all of them. This was my first time in the Claremont location. Had lobster corn chowder - tasted okay but not much lobster - and Uncommon Wedge Salad - good but not very big and served on an odd rectangular plate.... More
