It is CLOSED... INDEFINITELY. So I really have to write 100 words about a restaurant that's closed? It was great when it was open but what is the story with this?

Unfortunately one of our most favorite atmospheric places has closed and being made into 4 condos. What a waste!! We hoped last year that it would make a comeback, but that didn't happen. We miss you!!

Great fresh food. Fish, chicken, steak, pasta and veggie selections are all on the 1 page menu. The limited items ensure each item is prepared just right. Highly recommend the fresh, hot, mini buns.

Food quality was very good, and I like the cozy atmosphere. Service was friendly and efficient. For a good meal after a day skiing in the cold I would recommend this place.

Casual dress code. We were there a week before Christmas and didn't need a reservation but it's so close to sugar bush and a terrific place, that I'm sure you'll have a long wait without reservations during peak season.

The Common Man Restaurant is located in Warren, Vermont, in the heart of Mad River Valley, between Lincoln Peak and Mount Ellen. Sited in a 19th century barn, the dining room is elegant in its simplicity. With hand-hewn beams framing an open hearth fireplace, the 100-seat restaurant is inviting and intimate. Since the original owners, the Orsini family, opened their doors in the 1960s, 3209 German Flats Road has been a popular place for locals, visitors, and skiers to gather for a quality Vermont dining experience. Now in its fourth generation of operation, the current owners, Chef Adam Longworth and Lorien Wroten, are working hard to re-energize this Vermont dining institution with small town hospitality and world class cuisine.
