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

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

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

My husband and I frequent this restaurant a lot. We've never had a bad experience there & we especially like eating in the bar upstairs. There are great sections for lounging, high tops and of course the bar. They make their own veggie burgers here and they are by far my favorite around. My husband usually gets the mac n'... More

Been to this restaurant a few times and for some reason or other, the service is always slow. It's not very busy when I've been there which is why it's so puzzling to me that the service is slow. Whether I eat in the bar area or restaurant - same type of service. Last trip there I had a lobster... More
