Two friends and I stopped at the Common Man Restaurant in Claremont for Lunch on Saturday, January 12th. Greeted at the hostess station by Laura, who also is the manager of the restaurant. She seated us at a table by the double door that looks out to the river. The place was pretty much empty which is a shame because the atmosphere and the food here at lunch is great.

All three of us ordered the soup of the day which was Vegetable Beef Soup. Very tasteful and loaded with vegetables. Could have been slightly hotter, but still good nevertheless. I ordered the special, open face roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes for, one of my dining companions ordered the open face prime rib sandwich which comes with bouse-fried chips and a pickle and my other companion ordered Chicken Tacos with sweet potato french fries. All three entrees were great. Flavor, hotness, and eye appeal perfectly done.

All reasonably priced. More people should discover this great lunch place. It's quiet and a nice get away from the fast food place in Claremont. The prices and food are a whole lot better.
This being January I can't comment on the outdoor seating, but it is available during the summer months.

The Common Man has a great Gluten Free menu and went out of their way to accomodate my dietary needs. On top of that the food was wonderful and the holiday decor was warm and inviting.

While the service was great, the menu was diverse but the food lacked anything special in flavor. The appetizers need to be changed up a bit

We were all very excited to have somewhere new open up in the area, it was very busy the first time we went and the staff were great. Not the place to go for a quiet meal out but great for a gathering of friends, good atmosphere for that. The quality of the food was good but I found the menu limited.

I've lived in Claremont, NH for 25 years, and thought about an old building projecting into the Sugar River cascading through downtown, "That's where a restaurant should be." Now it's happened.
Seating in fair weather includes an outdoor triangle with spectacular view of a dam/falls used in the factory era.
Common Man has sixteen restaurants in NH, and their signal appetizer bar of cottage cheese/french dressing and crackers is also here, with a sign asking that one take only what one will actually eat.
Menu includes appetizers, Yankee specials, steaks, seafood, drinks, and their signature white chocolate at the end.
I've been to CM for gatherings of 30 and for individual dinners (now they are open for lunch), and always had quality fare and friendly service
