Entrees Were Yummy

I stopped at the Common Man after shopping at the outlets. I had the spinach quiche and fries and thought it was tasty. Everyone at my table seemed to enjoy their food. Several had the homemade chips and commented on the good quality. I was a little taken aback that our waitress made us pass our... read more

We went and sat at the bar and proceeded to get repeatedly ignored by the bartenders. The place was packed so I guess the locals love bad service, mediocre food, and high prices.

Cozy place, great food, gem of a place. Must visit when in Merrimack, NH. Onion soup and crab cakes are a must get!

We took our family here to eat and we were nervous because they can be particular. They loved the atmosphere and food. We enjoyed trying new foods there. The French onion soup was perfect. We had been here a long time ago and remember having great comfort food.

Their food is becoming institutionalized. A friend received a filet that was butterflied (?) and cooked to shoe-leather. I also had a very bad experience with their service and hostess. T

We had a nice meal there on a Tuesday evening. It was very quiet, unlike the usual Wednesdays when wine is half price. Service is always very good. The new menu still offers some great mac and cheese, broiled salmon, and burger choices; but somehow was not as appealing this time. Maybe because it was hot in there. Always the... More

Inside a heritage tavern, turned into a restaurant and bar, with the bar upstairs. The live music from the bar was way to loud and ruined the atmosphere. The staff was pleasant and efficient. I had the escargot app, it was amazing, best escargot I've had on this side of the Atlantic. Unfortunately the Mixed grill main was extremely forgettable... More

Living in Merrimack we had been to the Common Man several times before -- but tonight's visit was very disappointing. The high points were the White Chocolate Bread Pudding which was AWESOME, and the green beans which were delightful -- additionally my husband enjoyed his Lobster Mac'n'cheese. My entrée, however, was not so wonderful. I had the Steak Kabob .... More

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
