They have a lovely outdoor terrace right on the falls of the Sugar River. The evening we went was stunning with the crashing of the falls making us feel like we were all alone on that terrace. As the evening set in the overhead lights came on and the falls were lit beautifully. Best place in around for a romantic... More

We ate dinner there on Sunday night 8/24. I ordered a Pina Colada that seemed to take a while to get. We were still looking at the menu, the girl said I'll give you a few more minutes to decide what you like. Few minutes must be dragged out longer in Claremont, then she finally came back. We ordered Escargot... More

The renovated old mill building in which this restaurant is located has been caringly restored and the outside terrace over the waterfall is magnificent in August. The menu is varied and excellently prepared. The turkey pot pie is made with fresh ingredients, and the crab cakes are equally great. Kerri our server was polite, knowledgeable about the menu, and pleasingly... More

Our extended family was vacationing in the Claremont area, and we came here for dinner on the recommendation of a friend. The Common Man was the perfect choice. It’s a very spacious restaurant with several dining and sitting areas at different levels within a beautifully restored former mill building on the Sugar River. While we waited for our meal, we...

Renovations to this once falling down mill building are amazing. Outstanding views of the river. In the summer the floor is open in two places so you can see the river flow beneath the building. You can see and hear the water falls sitting outside on the patio. Food is good with nightly specials. Great variety of food to choose... More

We had contacted the restaurant for a last minute reception for my fathers funeral and they were more than willing to put something together for us and within our budget. We had more people arrive than what we had planed for and ran out of food every quickly. The event manager, Courtney, assured us this was ok and had more... More

To start with, this restaurant is in an absolutely stunning refurbished old mill building with an unbelievable river-side porch/patio. Typical of most of the other Common Man properties. The bar is good...fast service, decent prices and friendly service. That's where the "good" ends! I've probably eaten here a dozen times since it opened a few years ago, hoping that the... More

Don't eat the tacos. Inedible. Also found a chicken bone and could have choked. Manager was a waste and we had to ask him to do something on our check. He finally comped one meal. Acted like he was doing us a big favor.

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal on the deck overlooking the scenic waterfalls of the Sugar River. The waitress was very attentive and offered us the complimentary cheese and crackers while we waited for our food. I ordered New England Cod, which is bacon wrapped cod with oven roasted red potatoes and buttery/garlicky sauteed spinach on the side.... More
