We had a very nice meal at The Common Man. We enjoyed the ambiance and had a new waiter that was fantastic. He enjoyed sharing his thoughts on what we might like to dine on.
We were looking for more of a pub fare but decided the menu looked interesting so we stayed. Having the option of a pub menu would have been desirable since the restaurant had a pub feel, just a thought for future guests.

We had two nights in lincoln last october and the receptionist at our hotel kindly recommended this place to us. we went the first night and loved it so went back the second night too. The food is great the crabcakes, the prime rib, everything just tasted very fresh and home made i could'nt fault anything. The staff were all very accomodating and attentive and we never felt rushed to finish our meals as can be the case sometimes and is a pet hate of mine! if you are staying in lincoln or just passing through then i cant recommend it enough!

While staying in Lincoln we thought our food choices were going to be kind of boring or not good - but The Common Man saved us. The atmosphere is kind of a nice tavern inside with a defined bar area and a defined seating area.

First off the service was amazing - our server stopped by several times as well as gave us great food suggestions. The food itself was exemplary. My daughter got crab cakes since they had won several awards and she was not disappointed. Not only were they delicious and packed with crab meat but the two cakes the order came with were both the size of hockey pucks. I ordered the veal schnitzel and it was equally as good - a huge piece that nearly hung off the plate. At the end of the meal you get a surprise which is your server dropping by a good size piece of white chocolate for the table to share.

After the meal we joked that if we had known the food was going to be this good we would have staying in Lincoln another night.

After 11 PM the normal menu is swapped for a "pub" menu. The chicken wings (available in BBQ, Buffalo, or Teriyaki) are excellent. The 1 dozen order was delivered with 15 wings, blue cheese, and slices of carrot and celery. Excellent!

We arrived rather late for dinner, and while the restaurant would have closed the main dining area soon after our arrival, they welcomed us to enjoy our meal at our own pace.

The food was decent. I ordered the butternut ravioli, and while it wasn't my favorite version of this dish, it certainly filled me up! The service here was friendly and efficient, and several servers visited our table to recommend good breakfast spots and they even drew us a map with instructions to their favorite pancake house! We had some good laughs with the staff and it was an experience that would lead me to return again (and try a different dish).
