If you're familiar with the Common Man chain of restaurants, then have no fear; you're home! This location is in fact Common Man in disguise as a diner with great home cooking, stick to your ribs familiarity. Some diner favs like "beans & Franks" along with full dinners and homemade pies, etc for dessert! You'll love it!

Been coming here for years and the food is consistently good and fast, which makes it the main reason I stop here. Prices are good for a tight budget, too. The service is usually good, but this time it was the worst ever. It was busy, but no line out the door. It was breakfast and I had to ask... More

Thank you Katey for your prompt service and very professional manner. Food was excellent, she made sure we were comfortable, helped us when our son spilled his drink all over his meal, the people here are awesome, very friendly and helpful if you need directions as well.

We regularly go to Common Man restaurants. Food and service are always great. Today, Kati was our server. She was excellent. Pleasant and prompt. Wife and I had the Meatloaf omelet. Wow was it wonderful. We learned about this "Tony's Special" when we were at the Tilton Diner last week. Our friends likewise had omelet's, and spoke highly of the... More

Looking for (kind'a) old fashion diner experience, if yes this is the place to go. It is just like you remembered. And the food is also. Not great but good. You won't be disappointed with the menu or the food as long as you realize what to expect. Want to bring back some of those 1950 or 1960 memories then... More

This is a popular favorite in Manchester. Line OUT THE DOOR at 10AM on Sunday, so you'd best show up earlier or be willing to wait. We arrived at 9:30 so walked right in and had counter seating with no wait. Western Omelette and a side of biscuits and gravy. Service was attentive, little wait for food, good fresh eats.... More

Whenever I'm in the area this is always a great spot to stop and pick up breakfast. I've been coming here often on for the last 10 years and they are very consistent. It is definitely one of my favorite spots

The Airport Diner is a great place to get Diner food. Finally, something that actually is what it is. It is all you would expect a diner to be and the wait staff are great. Flying into Manchester NH? Don't waste tons of money eating at the airport, the Airport Diner (Not actually in the Airport) is close by and... More

We love coming here with our daughters. We visit NH to see our kids a few times a year, and we try to get to this diner with all of them before we leave. We're hoping to have better seating that accommodates 6 (we only had 6 out of 9 of us this time). Having all of us adults in... More
