Thursday night is pasta night

We love this place. Thursday nights 3 pastas are served with salad for $18 and $5 glasses of wine. I however had a wonderful martini called DIRTY DILL MARTINI. Delicious, especially for someone who does not like anything sweet. Of course, the regular menu, is also always available. Ps. Sorry, by... read more

Dinner menu changes nightly based off the chefs feelings on what he gets fresh and not.... The night I was there we were with a large group of friends. Service was fast and the server really new her stuff. I... More

Enjoyed dinner here on a ski trip to Stowe. Well worth tracking down in the dark and snow to find it! Had the absolute best pork chop I've ever had, and that's saying a lot coming from this Southern girl. I'd definitely go back. Highly recommend.

From the stunning barn interior to the huge crackling fire, the Common Man pleased us. The service was impeccable and the dinner outstanding. My halibut was delicious with just the perfect level of citrus flavors. Yummy!

I have been skiing Sugarbush for many years and I always have my best meal at The Common Man. I was not disappointed once again. We had a great meal at the bar during a very busy school vacation week. Despite being completely full is has a relaxing and quiet atmosphere. Our bar tender/sever was very helpful with her food...

I've not been a big fan of this restaurant in the past, but now I'm a convert. Will definitely be back. The variety of the menu, and the combinations of flavors in each of the dishes was great. there were 4 in our party, everyone had something different, and everything was really good. Octopus appetiser, brussel sprout salad, halibut, ravioli,... More

What I remember from the Common Man of 40 years ago was the decor of crystal chandeliers and red velvet in a great old barn, which unfortunately burned down. On a recent visit I was impressed with the total experience: a nice, cozy ambiance, a wonderful server who made us feel at home, and a delicious meal at a reasonable... More

A great meal, I have been here before and this dinner last night exceeded all expectations, The man in the kitchen can really cook, his octopus appetizer was one of the best plates of food I have ever had. In addition, our server Renee was a great addition to the experience. She was attentive, informative, but not intrusive. People go... More
