Popped into Foster's Boiler room for lunch today, the host sat me next to a fireplace in the main dining room. Unexpected and nice. The waitress came to take my order and told me about the soup of the day. When asked if the chef might prepare a grilled cheese to accompany the soup, she didn't miss a beat and... More

I've been to several of the Common Man family or restaurants and this is similar to them. On the inside it looks sort of like Common Man Merrimack, but rather than a restored 1800 house it is a restored 1800 mill building, with a 37 room hotel, a bar, and a cafe. It has lots of wood and brick, a... More

This restaurant is quaint, cozy, and historic (it is a converted mill). The food was very good, and there were interesting offerings on the menu, served with a smile. No complaints with service here. Not far from I-93.

Beautiful place. Great food and our server, Adam, was terrific. We started with deviled eggs and they were so amazing I'm making them for my Christmas Eve party. Will definitely go back.

We stayed at the Common Man and the snow stopped us going anywhere downtown for food but, Froster's didnt let us down. Situated at the corner of the inn with loft style structure with a huge old-fashioned iron chandelier - simple and nostalgic. We ordered a house ale, a surf-and-turf, a seared salmon and a mac-n-cheese, and all I would... More

While visiting Plymouth, NH with my wife we asked the desk clerk at the Fairfield Inn & Suites for a recommendation for dinner. She recommended Fosters Boiler Room at the Common Man and we are glad she did. The restaurant is in an old wood mill and very quant and cozy. Our food was excellent and service great.

Great to eat in this interesting space with brick and heavy timber structure spread out on several levels. Service was very good. Good beer and wine selection. Food is tasty. Very good duck confit sandwich, salad OK, blackberry peach cobbler great. Even though this is part of larger restaurant group it feels like one of a kind.

We were staying at the Inn so we had dinner here. My husband ordered the French Onion Soup, which unfortunately never arrived. He had the steak entree which was of average quality and came with a vegetable medley and mashed potatoes. I had the 3 forks salad (greens, pecans, cheese and apples) and I added grilled salmon. The salad, dressed... More
