I love the atmosphere of the Common Man restaurants. They remind me of holidays at my grandmother's house. I am sad that I can no longer get my family to go. The food isn't that great anymore. My husband is a vegetarian and he doesn't want to eat Macaroni and Cheese or Tofu Stirfry which seem to be the only... More

The restaurant is rustic/ cutesy, and I am not a fan of that; for example they bring the bill in an old book...I am also not a fan of the food. One grandson who is 8 and has never liked the food there ordered mac and cheese which I thought was basically tasteless. The other grandson's chicken tenders were dry... More

I have been here for lunch, dinner, drinks, corporate events and have never understood what all the hype is about. Several months after it first opened, my husband and I went for dinner. They did not take reservations so we put in our name and went to the bar for a drink. It was unbearably hot, yet we waited, and... More

Everything we tried was very good, and service was great, Would have loved to try their, very popular, Wine Down Wednesday event but had other things scheduled. I will not miss it on my next visit.

I understand this is a mini-chain restaurant and througout New Hampshire. The food was good and the service was very attentive. The chocolate at the end is a nice touch. Being in New England I had the seafood but didn't choose the lobster mac n cheese--maybe should have.

We used to live in New England and went to The Common Man often. There are different locations but the one in Concord always a good meeting place. Cheeses/crackers available prior to your meal. Food is delicious and you can't go wrong with anything you order. Love the 'Uncommon Salad' and always make a point to get it. This time... More

Every time I return to my native NH, I need to go to the common man (multiple locations throughout NH). Because I only get up there a couple of times a year the menu changes(agood thing), but they still keep the favorites on the menu. Awesome burgers, steaks and chowdah!!

Yes, this is a chain restaurant, but it is VERY good -- I just wish we had them in Colorado, where we live! The food was delicious, and we enjoyed the complimentary cheese and crackers appetizer. The seafood is GREAT, and we loved the chowders. Special kudos to Kathryn, our waitress -- EXCEEDINGLY friendly and efficient.

Went here recently while doing a Fall foliage tour. I wasn't very hungry, so I had a cup of the lobster corn chowder and a caesar salad. I was asked if I wanted anchovies and said yes. It was a nice change. My wife had the braised short ribs. Her comment was that she'd like to be able to make... More
