We were in Concord(our great capitol city) for a vigil and following that we decided it was lunch time. We hadn't been to this restaurant for quite a while, but we were very pleased with the service and food. We started with Corn/Lobster chowder and it was outstanding. We had sandwiches which were huge and very tasty. Our server was... More

I wait for a half hour for my veggie burger and after two bites, I realized the problem. It was cold. After all that time... I was starving. So I sent it back. I will say this - Paul, the bartender was awesome. This was not his fault. But then it didn't come back. After about 12 minutes, I had... More

Lots of people flock to all of the Common Man Restaurants, as there are quite a number of them in NH. I had their crab cake appetizer (ask for more sauce) and a bowl of their steak chili. Both very good. Portions are good. The atmosphere is fun (old Life Magazine's for sale) and fun "New England" humor playing in... More

The Common Man is not the cheapest casual restaurant, but it has good food, comfortable ambiance, and is a socially responsible local business with several restaurants in central & southern NH.

Stopped by this great do d on the way from skiing. Two apps were awesome, the escargot and the wedge salad. Escargot were over the top, almost ordered another, then the burger, meatloaf sandwich and flat bread came. The meatloaf sandwich is awesome, toasted bread just right. The fries were a neat shape and cooked just right. Great lunch!

Went with 3 others for lunch on a cold day and thought the Turkey pot pie special sounded like good, warm comfort food. Yuck. It was a bowlful of mashed potatoes with pot pie filling poured over it. These Common Man restaurants have really gone on a downhill slide. I don't know how you have a "pie" without a pie... More

This place has consistently great food, and atmosphere! The staff is all friendly, and knowledgeable about menu items, and the wine list. They have a menu full of comfort food, with a twist. I have never had a bad meal here! The pot roast is amazing, the Mac and cheese pizza to die for. You can't go wrong with anything... More

My wife and I were looking forward to an anniversary dinner at the Common man. We were placed at a table so close to the next couple that it was like a party of four. Food choice was ok , quality average.

The restaurant property abuts the Fairfield Inn in Concord so it is very convenient for those staying there. Food and atmosphere are both good. I had an Italian night and was very satisfied with the quality.
