My wife & I stopped into The Common Man for lunch on our way to Vermont to visit with friends. This is the first of many Common Man restaurants around Northern New England. Rustic brick walls and beams surround the dining area. A nice relaxing...More

The rustic comfort mixed with dinning in your own living room. Well I should say wishing it was my living room. Plenty of comfortable couches and chairs to sit back and relax while eating a delicious meal. Loved it hear!!

I cannot remember a time without the Common Man, I grew up nearby and have enjoyed so many meals here. It's the original and the best. Some things don't change :)

Common Man is simply a must go if you are in NH, both Lincoln and Ashland are outstanding. Almost Escargot as an app, onion soup, filet mignon, apple walnut chicken and dessert Creme brûlée. You just need to go, 5 stars in every aspect.

Wait Staff brings an old book to the table when they bring check. Gave it to my cousin when she asked to buy it. Wonderful atmosphere and offered stations of cheese and crackers to munch on. About a 5 min wait to be seated.

I can't remember, but when we got there it wasn't crowded at all. We had our pick of downstairs or a more lively vibe in the bar/restaurant upstairs. Great food!
