Very good food. Staff are wonderful. Feels like home. A nice place to go with friends. The upstairs bar is more casual and has a separate bar menu. Something for everyone!

Very good food. It's often crowded, but head upstairs to the bar and have some cheese and drinks while waiting to be seated for dinner.

My wife and I had a pre Valentines Day dinner at the Common Man. The bread was very good, but the Caesar salad was bland. For entrees my wife had the Mac and Cheese with Short Ribs, which she said was good, and I had the Prime Rib which was surprisingly very fatty, but was cooked to my liking. The... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and it did not disappoint. The dining experience I had there was close to perfection. From the moment that I walked in, I knew that this place was going to be tasty. After ordering my Common Man Beer, I helped myself to some complementary cheese and crackers. It was hard for... More

My husband and I stopped in for appetizers and drinks after an afternoon of shopping. The dining room was closed at the time we arrived but we were able to go upstairs to the bar for drinks and a more limited menu. Service was prompt and friendly. I had a bowl of cream of mushroom soup which was wonderful, just... More

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...
