Pretty good - but really an upscale 99

Nice well-trained wait staff very friendly and personable...Decor was very cute but t idid feel like a chain and the food was good though the hamburger tasted very much like a chain hamburger not handmade hamburger but frozen patty type.

This is our second time visiting this restaurant. We stumbled across this restaurant last year while on a motorcycle road trip and it was excellent then and they did not disappoint us this time - Once again it was EXCELLENT! My husband and I had the filet mignon and it just melted in your mouth! We will be back again..... More

My husband and I often go here to have a drink. The appetizers are really, really good, as are their meals. Be sure to try their flatbread pizza with tomato, spinach and feta with carmelized onions and a drizzle of honey...to die for.

We were traveling from Boston to Hanover,NH and thought the Common Man would be a good spot for dinner. We were not disappointed. We were four and had three different meals. Everyone was happy. They had many options to select from. Unfortunately, they were out of a blackened chicken pasta dish that 2 in our party wanted. The restaurant has... More

I want to give this place a higher rating, but I just can't. I've had good food and poor food from here. That said, the service is always great and friendly and their upstairs pub has great drinks.

Great atmosphere, great starters, really good and friendly staff. Love the "lounge/ski cabin" feel upstairs. Try it!

We have been here many times, and It does not disappoint. Prime rib was perfectly cooked, sole special was very well done. Be sure to ask for bread if you want it. (We didn't need it) fine to split entrees

I've been attracted by the rustic ambiance. The food we ordered was tasting much below my expectations. The wine by the glass was horrible (probably stored close to the oven!!!). We had to remind the waiter of our existence. He the brought my wife's food but mine was not ready. I eventually saw a plate put on a shelve to... More

Our hotel recommended the Common Man and we are so happy they did!!! The pot roast was great and the salads and appetizers were fabulous. The staff was sincerely nice and quick to make You happy. They have a cheese table where you can get some crackers and dips and some great Vermont cheese as well. All before you even... More

Seeing the parking lot overflowing we thought we would have to wait but that was not the case. A special event was in another area of the restaurant but did not affect the main dining room. We were seated in less than 10 minutes. Excellent waitress, very knowledgeable on the specials and menu. We ordered the Nantucket pie--fresh seafood baked... More
