We found Common Man to be quintessential New Englad both in ambiance and fare. They have a somewhat limited menu but our dinners were both delicious and perfect portion sizes. Don't fill up on the cheese and crackers bar because you'll want to save room for dessert. They have a nice wine list with some wines affordable by the glass.... More

Since we stayed at the nearby Common Man Hotel we had the choice of eating here or at a sports bar located in the same industrial area. We're glad that we ate here. The service was great and the food was great. Afterwords our server even went out on the patio to take some pictures of us in front of... More

This restaurant was awesome. It was an Old Mill so it was very classic inside. The food was fabulous! The atmosphere was relaxing. They have a patio out back but it was too cool to eat outside.

Perfect choice for a family dinner during an autumn visit to Vermont. The menu offered something for everyone--kids' menu, vegetarian options, free cheese and crackers, good beer and cocktails, etc. The dining room is big but still managed to feel warm and cozy. We'll be back for sure.

Probably one of the better restaurants in Claremont, located in a renovated mill building on the Sugar River. The river runs under the restaurant and there are openings in the floor where one can observe the river. Sort of a rustic atmosphere with tables on various levels. The service was good, the menu covered everything from steak and prime rib... More

The ambiance of this restaurant is classic. Lots of character with rustic decor. The service was excellent; polite and accommodating. The food delicious! They have a cracker and cheese bar that was quite unique and very tasty!

Claremont can be confusing to navigate but this place is worth the trip. The old mill building has an awesome vibe the decor is right up my alley, wood, brick and industrial. The waiter was prompt, witty and engaging. And the food was great the garlic rolls, Korean wings, lobster Mac, and Cob salad were all great! Thank you Chad... More

We were here for dinner on a Friday night. Definitely not crowded, but it was only a bit after 6 pm. There was live music on the patio. The restaurant is housed in an old mill, and is quite nice. Our server was attentive and knowledgable. I had the ribs and she had the vege burger. Both were good but... More

This is one of my staples when visiting along the Vermont/NH coast. Textile Mill conversion for restaurant, adjacent hotel and office building. We ate on the terrace overlooking the water/mini falls/river on a Monday evening. In addition to the usual dinner menu, they featured Mexican specials at a good value and $5 Martinis. Enjoyed the ruby slipper. Best escargot I... More
