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

Had the family together for a birthday. Nine of us for Saturday lunch. The waitress handled the party well until.... Five meals made it to the table, the other four hit the floor. This could have been a real disaster but the waitress and manager handled it really well and in the end it turned into a fun party that... More

We just left The Common Man in Concord. I can say we will NOT be back. The food was fine, nothing exceptional but it wasn't bad either. The service, however, was awful. No excuses for a chain restaurant that has been in business forever. We overheard one waiter tell the table next to us that they were very busy as... More

This was our second visit. We had the Crab Cakes which are huge and delicious. The food is always well prepared and the service is excellent. One of our favorite restaurants. We'll be back as soon as we can.

This restaurant has FANTASTIC food with an atmosphere to match! It's a wonderful restaurant, and I cannot recommend it more highly. The service was top-notch. I just hope I am able to go back some day. There were about 20 things on the menu that I know I would have enjoyed. A neat touch is that your bill is brought... More

I have never had a bad experience or meal at the common man! My family loves the cracker and cheese table. The waitstaff is always pleasant and is very knowledgeable about the menu. I always enjoy the atmosphere and food at the common man!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Concord. The kids love the free appetizer table with the dips and cheese. I think the cottage cheese dip is fabulous! My son is obsessed with the copper coins (pickled carrot slices) they give you at lunch. When we go for dinner, they are kind enough to get him some. Mom is... More

Cute restaurant with great food and delicious choices. Menu is simple with a lot of comfort food. Bar was nice and bartender, Scott, was fabulous, Wine selections were good and reasonably priced. Would go again.
