We dined here with friends after an afternoon of beautiful hiking nearby. Our friends who had been before highly recommended it. The rolls was delicious and so were the drinks.. but.. the seafood bouillabaise which 2 of the 4 of us ordered was incredibly salty... The staff were responsive and sincerely apologetic but the meal was nearly uneatable. And since the evening was very busy it took a v long time for the meal-- it would take far to long re-order. We left disappointed when we had heard so many good things. We may try once more, but if we don't have a v good experience we will not return.

Ordered Nantucket scallops. Flavor of entire dish was tasty, however seafood was drenched in the basil oil. Last scallop was even soggy. Companion enjoyed his Mixed Grill, however. My shoes stuck to the floor upon leaving the table. Disappointed.

Very busy night for the restaurant but our table for a group of seven was waiting for us when we arrived.

My mom and I had lunch at The Common Grill this last week. The bread that is brought out for a starter is unbelievably good. I had the turkey burger, which was flavorful and moist. My mom had the chicken club, which she said was the best sandwich she'd had in ages.

The ambience of the restaurant is casual and pleasing. What a fine time -- well worth the drive.

Lunch was very good. The rolls alone will bring you back. The server made a fresh pot of coffee before bringing the first cup! It is a very old building but the atmosphere is charming, Fresh flowers on the table. A nice, nice experience.
