It was a nice and quirky restaurant. Once you are seated you can go to the front and get biscuits and some toppings before your food arrive. The food was nice and all in all an enjoyable dinner.

My wife and I have been eating the local chain of Common Man restaurants for over 20 years so we know that this visit wasn't typical of their hospitality. Although we have eaten at most of the Common Man restaurants in the state this was our first visit to the Merrimack store. We were seated after a 5 or 6... More

We had stopped here before, and came back for a second time because we love this place! We just had apetizers from the bar menu in the upstairs bar, which is just awesome! There are cozy alcoves and tables, tvs and you can watch the cook, too. Love the old feel and cozy atmoshere, and the regular menu has something... More

I spent literally every other day of a two week holiday in this place 2 years ago and between the guest ales, the house brew and the excellent bar food I became fatter and more drunk. Bar staff are very busy but very attentive. Along with the unusual sideline in reproduction period prints on offer for next to nothing downstairs,... More

My wife booked one of their rooms for my 30th Birthday and we had over 30 guests with us. The staff was very friendly and worked with us on the menu options due to some picky eaters. The food as usual was amazing as this is not our first time going to the restaurant. They have a fantastic bar setup... More

We stopped in for lunch after seeing excellent on line ratings and we were in Merrimack for the afternoon for shopping. Walking in it is a wonderful old New England home setting, and the have all you can eat crackers & different cheese dips which were offered after we were seated! The Lobster wraps are like Crab Rangoon, and a... More

Good food and lots of nice touches like the cheese and crackers and the white chocolate bits with the bill. The old house setting is very nice and my server was great. But the house wine bottle for $10 on Wednesday really sealed the day - really liked their Merlot! (From Rutherford in California). Very pleased!

There's a sign at the entrance giving some 20 words saying how helpful they will be or nice or whatever which to me is patronizing garbage which invariably turns out to be inaccurate . If however the staff are wonderful and blah de blah then it's still a stupid and patronizing sign which should be returned to the gates of... More

A cozy, homey, inviting restaurant. Had a late lunch upstairs in the bar, complete with free cheese and cracker appetizer. Burger was tasty and the sweet potato fries were very good! Chicken nachos were good, but I would probably try something different next time. Wish they had an awesome fireplace, like at their Common Man location in Lincoln, but it... More
