There was no wait on a Sunday night. Casual, tavern pub atmosphere, food was very good and wait staff was friendly. There were only 2 vegetarian choices. Service was a bit slow but we had no other evening plans but to return to the hotel....More

Staying at Best Western and needed somewhere to eat - this is about 5 - 10 minute walk from the hotel and rated highly in the local reviews. We had an excellent meal here in a quaint and friendly atmosphere. Recommend.

We got off the road 20 minutes before the dining rom closed. Service was excellent. Enjoyed the mushroom caps and the Guinness had the appropriate head on it. We were tired from a long road trip, but they took good care of us.

We went to the Common Man, mostly because it was very close to our hotel. Seemed like a nice place when we walked in. We were there for an early dinner and the dining room was busy, but not full. We were seated right away....More

The braised rib and Mac and cheese was good. Recommend the lobster chowder or crab cakes for apps. Really, you can't seem to go wrong with any choice here!
