We went upstairs. Atmosphere was great. Cheese and crackers and some dip was delicious. Wait staff were awesome. Food was very good. French onion soup was the best. We came in for lunch. Will eat here a again.

Amazing burgers and a great atmosphere to relax and have a casual lunch/dinner. We enjoy the second floor bar area or at the outside seating. A great place to be with family, as a couple or with friends.

We're in the Lakes Region every summer, but hadn't been back to The Common Man in Ashland for several years. It was a successful outing. Although dinner at home is usually later than 7:30pm, we're not happy with lines, waits, or slow service, so off...More

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!
