I decided to try The Common Loon when I was in the area. I got the Country Cobb Salad as a to go item. It was huge and delicious. The price was very reasonable for such a "meaty" salad. Next time I will dine in.

Visited the Common Loon for the first time-Positives-clean, fresh and bright atmosphere. Cold evening, drafty at table. Waitstaff-friendly, silly but a little over the top became not so funny. Pizza options around 10.00-veggie was good, clam and bacon-meh. American fare, hope they hit their stride,...More
