I have eaten at most of the Common Man restaurants. This one was a disappointing experience. The restaurant itself is very nice. The food was mediocre, as was the staff.

One of several restaurants in the Common Man chain and likely the most picturesque! Right next to the river with a nice outdoor sitting area and a stream also running thru the basement. However, the quality and consistency of the food is opposite to this...More

We were here last weekend and the service was pretty slow so if you are in a hurry I'd either mention it to the staff or go somewhere else. The drinks were good but light on the alcohol. The sesame tuna and taco appetizer were...More

I have never been disappointed at the Common Man. I've eaten there with friends, family, and my wife. In every case the waitstaff and food has been excellent. Lunch, brunch, or dinner good food at a price.

Definitely a place to hit if you are in this part of New Hampshire. The lobster corn chowder is very tasty and their free cheese bar is fun. The menu has a nice selection and the bartender made some terrific drinks. Would recommend to others.

Dining w/family, rarely possible, was delightful yet disappointing as most meals were sub-par, esp. prime ribs served well-done, rather than medium or med-rare. Baked potatoes were "cool" & service mis-guided for a large party (10). e.g. No steak knives provided, no bread basket, water glasses...More

This is a great place with a great atmosphere. It is nice to see an old mill building redone and put to good use. The food is good and the staff are very friendly. This place also holds parties, weddings etc. Give it a try!!
