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.

Really beautiful setting, food was only average to good. We had a group of 6, the Lobster and Corn Chowder was overly thickened, but had a good bit of lobster in it. Caesar salad dressing was ok, but the salad wasn't tossed thoroughly so that all the dressing was on the bottom of the salad. I had a corn meal... More

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 slow to refill, wine arrived toward end of our meals, yet ambiance w/waterfall & river...

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!!

We rarely have gotten good food here. The bar menu is the safest bet but almost every time we decide to give the food one more try we really regret it. This is so unfortunate because we love the atmosphere. We love to come for drinks and the patio is gorgeous in the summer.

This was a wonderful experience for my wife and I who drove 40 miles to come to this restaurant. My wife had received the gift card for her birthday so we went to use it. Everything about our experience was top notch. The service and the food the reasonable prices and the wonderful view of the falls as we enjoyed... More

Once again had dinner at the Common Man while staying there visiting family. We never fail to get up from the table feeling satisfied; indeed it is all too easy to fill up on their generous portions of homestyle favorites.The pot roast, chicken pot pie, haddock with or without crab crust, and the apple-walnut chicken have all hit the spot....

First, there was a strange odor, musty and stale air all about the place and funny air freshener's plugged in throughout the restaurant. Secondly, the care of the restaurant was lacking, it looked dirty, no attention to detail. Thirdly, our server acted as if it was it his last day on the job and was just putting in his time... More

It's tucked away but worth seeking out. Lots of local foods that are expertly prepared and served. Clearly the best restaurant in the Claremont area which we have found. We had the tortellaci appetizer, which was wonderful. Best burger in the area with natural grass fed beef. Highly recommended!
