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!

In the area for a only a week yet hit this place three evenings for dinner. Outstanding food and service in a great venue, full of character. Half price wine on a Wednesday was an added bonus. Great burgers, shrimp skewer and steaks. Unable to try more!

Stopped in for lunch on Tuesday, outdoor dining, server Tom, you could tell he was new and nervous but he still did a good job. Forgot our waters and when we asked didn't even recognize that we had previously asked for. Asked for an extra side of Balsamic and that was not what was delivered but was presented as such....

We had a dinner of apps, all of which were excellent. Chicken taco and salmon bites were very tasty and serving size was large (dinner for a light eater).The romaine wedge salad was a nice twist on a classic. The onion soup was the weakest link but still good. However, like the other Lake Region restaurants we visited, the beer... More

We always make a trip here for dinner for the past 20 plus years. We went last night service was fair, the food was the biggest disappointment ever. We will not be going back.

Good food, good service, nice place. Went here twice for dinner. Reasonably priced as well. Didn't realize this was part of a chain- apparently the first one. Would definitely go here again.

Year after year my boyfriend orders the escargot here. Great atmosphere, always great food. Visit their gift shop across the street.

Had lunch here. The lobster Mac & cheese was awesome but the side dish of carrots in red wine vinegar was delicious.

As a big family on a week's vacation, we were saving our one big dinner out for The Common Man. What a huge disappointment! Service was sporadic to bad. Our waitress was completely overwhelmed... not sure if they're short of servers, but we waited crazy long intervals between drink orders. We (and several other customers) had to refill our own...
