So a group of us stopped in for lunch over the weekend. We sat upstairs in the lounge area. At first things went well, we were greeted and all served drinks. I figured something might be up when our last friend arrived and was never asked if she wanted a drink. We all ordered. I ordered the... read more

I've been going to the Common Man's for years. The Concord location has always been pretty good, but the last two times have been very disappointing. Staff not quite as friendly, and the meals were overcooked. The worst was the meatball appetizer. It sounded great, but it had obviously been reheated more than once and was slightly burnt on the...

This was the first time I have been here and I would go again. The server (Rebecca) was really good. I was with someone who is a little challenging as a customer and asked her a lot of questions. She handled them all with grace and professionalism. She did not rush us and provided lots of time for us to... More

We have it as a goal to eventually eat at all the CMan's. This time en route it was Concord. Very easy to find and then get back to 93. Called ahead to check wait time, and arrived with a table ready. Solid menu and our choices were very good to the eye and palate. We even asked if they... More

We stopped at the Common Man in Concord, NH en-route home from Vermont. Had not been here in approximately 5 years and it proved to be quintessential New England Pub dining at it's best. It did not dissapoint! The entire restaurant is laid out in colonial style with multiple small and larger rooms for table side seating. We sat at... More

This restaurant has food that is nothing special but the prices are on the high side. This is a very popular restaurant, but I've never been able to see the attraction.

Was really looking forward to going because of the good things I'd heard. Took my wife there for date night. Some of the food was okay, some of it was just bad. I understand that people sometimes have a bad night, so we decided to give it another shot. Second time was worse. All the food was lacking something, flavor.... More

Nice looking place but there is nothing special about the food or service. I was asked if I wanted bottled water and they brought me one that had a spring loaded type top that simply pops off and is NOT sealed ! This glass bottle was obviously filled and reused at the restaurant ! Not something I would request again.... More

The food is just ok. Wine list is just ok. Too bad, because the atmosphere is terrific.If you like unremarkable comfort food, by all means go.

Many people love this place. I'm unfortunately not one. Not a big fan of comfort food, I find little at the Common Man to eat. The atmosphere is great, very cozy and welcoming. The bar is where this place is best. Though the prices are a bit steep for the fare, people are willing to pay for it. Overall, I... More
