“Best take out in town”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

Good food and value. My only complaint is that the staff spend more time talking to each other then the customers. Otherwise highly recommend.

“Village Common Food Court-good food on the go”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

Across the street from the eat in restaurants you can pretty much get all the same for on the go. There are several options: The Fish’n Chicken, The Pasta & Pizza Caffe and The Healthy Kitchen. We got food from the Healthy Kitchen, where everything on the menu is 500 calories or less. I found this great for my family as we like to eat healthy when possible. All the food was good, in particular the fish was fantastic and perfectly good. The burger wasn't amazing but it was "healthy". The frozen yogurt was yummy too! We will definitely be back to sample some of the other options.

“My favorite restaurant!!!”
Reviewed November 24, 2011

This has been a favorite of mine for years. I keep coming back. This past year they celebrated 25 years and started offering a great special -- 2 dinners for 29.95. [it went up to 34.95 this past August.] There are about 6 entrees. All are great. It includes a bottle of wine and you can take home what you don't drink. Even before this special, this was my favorite place. I think they also have the best filet mignon and the best crab cakes anywhere in this area. You can take advantage of the special in either the Chowder House dining area or the French Cafe.

They have several small function rooms for groups and I've been there for functions a number of times.

It's location is very convenient too...right off the Southeast Expressway. And it's not a chain which makes it unique in this day and age. It is not open on Sundays. I can honestly say, I never tire of The Common Market on the Milton/Quincy line.

Bland food in an atmosphere that seems musty and not clean
