Very pleasant meal. They were very busy and after a 20 minute wait we were seated in a very comfortable room. The appetizer mushroom dish was excellent. Dinner was very enjoyable, service was very nice.

You would think you are having dinner at a friend’s home with a very homey setting and home style food. The meatloaf is my favorite by far.

Our group of 12 had a private room for dinner. Dan our waiter was AMAZING! He should be a stand up comedian! We actually had a picture taken with him in our group photo. Food was great, service was outstanding. Thanks for a fun night.

We had supper here. The place was packed, and to our great surprise, food came out promptly and was very good. Flat bread and mussels for starters. Prime rib and a Sirloin as the main. This restaurant was great. Really enjoyed it.

The Common Man is a "what you see is what you get" place. It is nothing fancy. We have been there an average of once every 12-18 months over the years. It is OK at best. The food is nothing to write home about. This...More

We had a late dinner after shopping at the outlet mall. The house has a lot of character and history. The food was excellent. I had the Lobster corn chowder which was very tasty. They provide complimentary cheddar cheese, cheese dips and crackers. The blueberry...More

As of recently, they do not take reservations. As I remember, they will give you special consideration if you call ahead, right before you leave. It is a large restaurant and generally has very short lines.
