Time for the Common Man to change the menu. The cuisine is tired, prepared by a kitchen that does not care to impress the patrons. The hostess, a middle aged blond with a permanent scowl on her face should find a different position to work within the walls of the Common Man. She is not at all welcoming, directing guests...

When a local friend asked our group to wait until Wednesday night so that he could join us, I looked forward to a meal that the locals enjoy so much that they look for opportunities to share with their friends. I almost regret sharing my thoughts in this review as my friend thinks this is the best place to eat... More

Excellent wine list, by the glass selections too. Very good food with a variety of selection. and the staff were wonderful. We were there on a snowy night a few days before Christmas, it was crowded without feeling cramped. Parking can be a walk as the lot was small. Overall, great visit there.

Delicious meals and desserts. I got the chili. I typically don't like beans but there weren't many. We both got peppered bacon burgers. Which were delicious and exactly how we like them.

Love the atmosphere and the menu is always changing. The dining room is warm and inviting. There is often a fire going in the corner. The wait staff is pleasant. Food is fantastic.

I have been going to the Common Man for years, and until the last visit it was always consistently good. I took a friend from out of state to the restaurant on Sunday, January 29, and was so disappointed in the food and its quality. It was a shock. I hope that it was just an off day for the... More

I can't help it to think of the owner, every time I visit one of the Common Man restaurants off I-93. He is a good community volunteer and has done a lot for NH. Common Man are classics, the food is always good. The one in Concord offer great ambiance in a barn-style building. Love the dips they offer, only... More

Great selection on the lunch menu. Our group ordered a variety of items: hot beef sandwich, crock of chili, salad topped with salmon, and a warm veggie dish with polenta. We sat in the main downstairs dining room and it was a very warm, friendly atmosphere.

We arranged for a private room for a family birthday dinner. The restaurant was very busy and unfortunately there was a computer problem so all orders were held up for well over an hour. Our waitress was very pleasant and tried her best to keep our 15 member party occupied and happy. Eventually our orders arrived although some were mixed... More
