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

Out-of-towners, we tried Common Man for a large family group on a Saturday night. Some reviews on other websites had some customers unhappy with service. Our service was excellent. We had a three year old in the group who was not happy about the prospect of a sit down restaurant. The table toys and ability to move around without disturbing... More

I was too tired from traveling all day to eat in the restaurant and asked them if they could provide me with two pot roast dinner to go. They were more than happy to accommodate me. I waited at the bar and held a conversation with the customers who explained to me the wide range of mixed drinks. The woman... More

We were picking out our new Soap Stone Counter at Stone Creations and I asked Heather were she would eat dinner, without hesitation she said The Common Man Restaurant on Water Street. Well we went and wow its located in a 1860's old textile mill, what a great experience ! Seems like Wednesday night is 1/2 off on your wine.... More

Me and my family enjoyed our experience at the common man. Bri was a wonderful friendly exuberant waitress. Who always made sure we had what we needed. The food was cooked to perfection. It was raining so we were not able to enjoy the wonderful outdoor scenery. ROLLS ARE DELICIOUS!!! KEEP'EM COMING!! Dessert was very delicious as well. We could... 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
