This is a causal place with formal service. Relax on a couch with a drink before your dinner. Then decide what your dinner choice will be. You can't go wrong with any of the steak dinners.

It's been a very long time that I went to a restaurant and was visited by manager while we were eating to personally say hi and verify all was well. I also like their free cheese bar. Overall good value.

We arrived not long before they closed, but were not made to fell rushed at all. The food was welcome (and the Sam Adams even more so) and we had a good solid dinner after a long day. There was nothing "lite" about the portions given nor the content, but we were 4 hungry people who went away satisfied

This is an excellent restaurant that we happened by while driving in Concord. Its a very friendly place with outstanding food in a nice setting. The value of price for the food was very fair and reasonable. Every course was great. The waitress and chef both served us and checked regularly to ensure that it was of the highest quality.

Staying overnight nearby for a ski trip, and this place seemed like a nice enough local place. It has a cool vibe- country but distinctly New England country. You can tell your in New Hampshire! I had the Bison meatloaf with wild rice and butternut squash and I cleared my plate! This is even after the Uncommon Flatbread appetizer (a... More

This place is very convenient to the highway and hotels off exit 13 in Concord. Quirky decor to mimic an old post and beam tavern leaves you feeling right at home. Great function space with excellent catering options and service. Rich food with generous portions at a reasonable price.

Met a friend for lunch. I had not been to this Common Man and it is a beautiful building with lots to see. We were seated promptly, invited to the cheese board and our drinks came quickly. Service was prompt and pleasant. I ordered a Reuben and it was grilled too long and the bread a bit burned. Everything else... More

If you decide to eat at this restaurant, you must order the Portsmouth Pie. It's incredible. You WILL be full, do not order an appetizer, you will not have room. Atmosphere was excellent too. Waitstaff is incredible as well.
