Walking into The Common Man is like walking into your Great Aunt or Grandmas for sunday dinner, the decor is adorable and the food is good all American classics. Perfect for a large family group. The menu caters to all the portions are huge! The staff is incredibly sweet and attentive.

I had a greasy salmon pinko crusted. Caesar salad is lame filled with way too many cheap croutons.Dressing had to have come from a bottle. Disappointed. Thought... More

The Common Man Restaurant in Ashland, NH is part of the chain of restaurants of the same name but it's approach to the preparation and serving of it delicious offerings is far from typical chain food.

We walked in at 5:30pm and the restaurant was already more than half full which was a sign that we were in for a great meal. And sure enough, we were! The crackers and dip (self serve) is a nice touch... More

Here's what I love about The Common Man: included in our meals, which were typical mid-range prices, was crackers and cheese that you fetch yourself, salad, side of vegetables and little chunks of their signature white chocolate. (I love a salad with my meal, and it irks me when I have to pay an extra $5 or $6 for it.)... More

What a treasure the Common Man is. The wait staff was very friendly and professional, the atmosphere was fun with eclectic decor, and the food SO delicious. The Mac n' Cheese was the best I've ever had. Family ordered a variety of dishes and everyone raved about their food. If you are anywhere near the restaurant, you definitely must go!
