Delightful!

A wonderful first night experience and we are returning for our final meal in Lincoln. Not only great New England menus, but lovely wine suggestions! Very good service.

Good atmosphere , a place with lots of history. We were there two nights in a row. The service was friendly. We ordered the steak medium well done but got it done. When we told our waiter he took it back and replaced it with a better one with new side dishes. Even the manager came to apoligize. The second... More

My boyfriend and I visited the Lincoln Common Man for our dinner date tonight and were absolutely BLOWN away by the food, atmosphere and our server Mike. We've both been here before but this was by far our best visit! We were starving when we arrived so the cheese and cracker spread was a lifesaver, not to mention delicious. We... More

This the best food in Lincoln (although the Woodstock Brewery is close). We ate here three times over the course of a week. If you like Yankee food (as I do) then this is absolute heaven. The pot roast and the lobster corn chowder are amazing. The rolls they bake are also yummy, as is the soft creamy butter it... More

We have been going to the Common Man for 25 years. I have never had a disappointing meal there. The lounge area is large with a stone fireplace that is huge. You can get the bar menu or the dinner menu in both areas of the restaurant. Portions are generous. Wednesday is wine-down night. All bottles of wine are half... More

This is my favorite dinner spot in Lincoln. Hands down best desserts anywhere and great staff. You always feel comfortable. Portions are good, fresh baked breads, cheese bar and their famous white chocolate make it impossible for me to go anywhere else!

Excellent food, wonderful service and the right atmosphere. This resturant strikes the perfect balance by providing a casual atmosphere with an upscale flare because the quality of their food and service is so good. I am not sure how they did it but it is just as great for couples as it is for families. My family of 4 loved... More

Loved the decor in this very traditional New England restaurant. Service was alright but not anything special. Waitress asks how your food is but then walks away before you can answer. Obviously insincere and could not care less. My salmon with glaze was absolutely incredible. My wife's potatoes was awful and the lobster was not on her cod as advertised.... More

Great food, great service and its location is so convenient to our timeshare. The lounge has an enormous fireplace that takes any chill off when coming in from the cold.

We had the pleasure of visiting The Common Man restaurant in Lincoln NH in February after seeing the ice castle nearby; the atmosphere was very cozy - they have a giant fireplace in the lounge- and the service was efficient and friendly. Our meals were wonderful!
