We visit Ashland for a week each fall, and come here at least twice during our visit. The service is quick, and the only time it wasn't, they gave us a coupon for a free appetizer.

Visited here with friends and had a wonderful lobster mac n cheese. The food was good; ambiance was unusual but acceptable. The special mixed drinks were rather watery but all in all, I would go again.

My husband and I came early afternoon before the dinner rush. Food was good, but I wasn't a fan of the ambiance. We are in the main dining area. We would come again, but they should really consider doing some upgrades

My son took me to this place in the middle of New Hampshire. In Ashland? Very rustic two floors. Make a reservation, s even though it's in Ashland, everyone knows of it and this is where they go. Not like anywhere I've been as yes there are tables, but there is also seating such as couches with coffee tables to... More

We ended our long weekend at Cottage Place on Squam Lake with a delicious dinner at Common Man in Ashland, NH. We went all out, from appetizers to dessert. Everything was delicious, from the complementary dips and crackers, to the homemade onion rolls and blueberry bread. The salads were fresh, the onion soup covered in melted cheese, my husband's favorite.... More

Started out with a traditional Caesar Salad. Very fresh, and plenty of cheese and dressing. A pleasant surprise. Had a New York Sirloin: It was just okay, and cooked to my specification, but a little thinner and seemed slightly tasteless. No ones fault but would not order the steak again. Have had much better meals. Stick with the meatloaf, and... More
