We went to eat there on a Tuesday night. We ate in the bar area, which was very homey. The menu has a lot of comfort food. Our waitress was very attentive and our food was brought out in a reasonable amount of time. I had the crab cakes and my husband ordered the NY Sirloin steak. Both dishes were... More

A good spot for lunch. You might have a little trouble going around in circles if you don't have a GPS (we did), but it is easy to find overall. Was beginning to crowd for lunch when we arrived early. But we were seated cordially and quickly. Our server, Debbie, was quite attentive. Owner or manager (or both) stopped by... More

Service, slow. Food, pretty bad. Waited forever for our food (tables on either side of us were seated after us, and got their food before us). My food, meatloaf didn't taste like meatloaf at all, and the potato was lukewarm at best. Wife's Pulled Pork mac and Cheese was the greasiest mac and cheese I've ever seen. Soaking in grease....

We had a nice Sunday lunch there, in the pub. Service was fast. Lunch was great. It was very quiet on this Sunday afternoon, not many customers with half of the pub open. Charlie, our server, was very nice, although somewhat distracted by the manager who was monopolizing his time in the closed portion of the pub. Personally, I love... More

I've had great success at the Common Man chain with the exception of the Concord one. Food is of poor quality, cold, not what I ordered, undercooked, the list goes on. I've been three times in hopes it was just a one time issue but I have to say at this point I would not go back. Worst Burger and... More

We couldn't find anything to do in this town so we came here because the desk clerk at the hotel suggested it, we were seated right away, helped ourselves to complimentary cheese, spreads ,crackers and blueberry bread, our dinners were great! We had pot roast and pork chops. The desk clerk said this was a chain, I hope they open... More

Amazing place! Nantucket seafood pie is incredible, fantastic burgers with optional gluten free buns and free cheese and crackers to start with. Best dinner rolls ever too! Love the atmosphere and will definitely come back.

A review in two parts. First the good: tasty mushroom starter, nice kebabs, baked potato and chips (french fries). Now the bad: we waited 20 minutes for our table, even though the restaurant appeared only two thirds full. We then had to wait a long time for our food after ordering (sat at table at 18:20, food arrived at 19:20).... More
