The Common Man is a New Hampshire "chain" with several restaurants in different parts of the state. The food is consistantly good with many dishes featuring local ingredients. The dining room is casual/formal with a rustic vibe. Dishes are not cheap, but worth the splurge once in awhile. The upstairs lounge has a traditional bar and some non-traditional seating with...

Was dining here with my boyfriend on our anniversary and had a fantastic night! This was his first time here and he was very pleased with it. There was a full parking lot on a Sunday night which is always a good sign that it is a good place. We started off with drinks. I ordered a blueberry lemonade alcoholic... More

About halfway between Manchester and Nashua is semi-quaint, semi-developed, semi-affluent Merrimack, where, starved for lunch, we pulled into The Common Man. Charming Colonial decor, fast service, good attitude; nice touch of books on tables. Plus where else can you eat with an oversize Washington and Jefferson watching your every forkful? I had a reasonably priced glass of meritage white while... More

We decided to go to the Common Man after our hotel concierge STRONGLY suggested we try them for dinner. Boy was he right! From the moment we walked in until we left we were treated to a very nice evening from a to a really nice hostess hostess followed by a just as nice and pleasant waiter and then received... More

Really is a homey, comfortable place. Comfort food, good service, good prices. Ate lunch as a group, between burgers, salads, soups and sandwiches, not a complaint amongst us. The menu accommodated us all, I don't think anyone was left wanting.

Another lovely C-man restaurant in an old farmhouse. As usual, all the delicious offerings and fantastic décor- comfortable etc that the Common Man restaurant group excels at providing.

Having had eten here several times I can say I have always enjoyed the visit to this eatery. Great atmosphere is the key to this attraction. Select eating downstairs, rooms with fireplaces, historic detail and quiet! Upstairs is more for those wishing a bar atmosphere with bar foods, a fireplace and sitting areas for intimate gatherings at cocktail time and... More

I had the pot roast and it was awesome! Talk about, melt in your mouth. I don;t recall everybody's order but everybody enjoyed their food and we all agreed it was a nice lunch. Staff was great as well, when I ordered a dessert to share and asked for a candle for my husband to blow (bday), they comped the... More
