After searching TripAdvisor for a good place to stop for lunch, we chose this place. Everything was so good! The Reuben, the desserts, service and atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. I highly recommend it.

The workmanship at the Common Ground is stunning. No smoking and the atmosphere is calm, with staff that are very nice. A great deal of the food they prepare is healthy. You will not find coke or other carbonated drinks here. The Greek salad is excellent and they make a tuna sandwich unlike any other you have had. Well worth... More

Not only great roads for your Corvette to cruise, but a perfect lunch stop. As the name implies-a great place to park next to a farm truck on one side and an oldsters huge old Buick on the other side. Common Ground! The decor is beautiful and woody! The food is awesome, reasonably priced and made on site. The wait... More

This is a great place for sandwiches. Been several times and they have always been good. They steam the meat and melt the cheese which makes it a better sandwich. The interior is very unique with interesting woodwork. They do limit their menu to natural items so the soda selection is unique but the ice tea or water are great.... More

We stopped here for lunch after hiking at HaHa Tonka. We saw the review in Trip Advisor. We were there around 2 pm, so it wasn't busy. The restaurant was beautiful and had a "Silver Dollar City" Feel to it, complete with folk music playing. We got sandwiches and a salad. All were very scrumptious! They had homemade bread with...
