We stopped here after a day of shopping. The food was excellent, service friendly, and the atmosphere very cozy. Several area with sofa and chairs for casual seating. We sat at the bar. The cottage cheese and salsa dip we do good, I had a second helping. We will go back.

My wife and I have been to almost all of the Common Man restaurants. There is something that is so comforting about the restaurants and it makes you feel so welcomed and like it's home. We visited yesterday in Merrimack for lunch and it was as usual good. We had Michael as our server and he could have been the... More

We just got back from a wonderful meal at the Common Man in Merrimack, NH. The food was absolutely terrific. Also their Common Man wine and brews were just as good. Great atmosphere and Julie our waitress had a personality that wouldn't quite! Thanks for a nice evening. We've tried many of the Common Man restaurants and all have been... More

Arrived here to find a FULL parking lot on the Weds before Christmas. Apparently everyone was upstairs drinking in the tavern because the downstairs rooms were nearly empty. We had a server who was fairly new to the restaurant, but clearly an experienced server. She was very attentive, but didn't seem to hear us. We asked for no gravy on... More

The Common Man in Merrimack is one of a series of Common Man restaurants throughout New Hampshire. They specialize in a large, warm friendly tavern atmosphere. The menu is extensive and very affordable. Their Merrimack restaurant is large and actually is located in a former popular tavern. We visited recently to take our daughter out for a birthday lunch.

Snowy evening brought us here for a birthday dinner. Had talked about coming here for years, and we were not disappointed. Ordered pot roast and the Nantucket pie: both were very good and plentiful. The breads served before the meal were delicious. We did not have dessert, but there were some tempting choices. We will be back!

The bar food is excellent and my black and tan is always made great. The atmosphere is very nice with the exposed beams of the old building.

I rarely give 5 stars but this restaurant hit all the right notes. Service by Lisa D. was top notch! We ordered a harvest tortellini special and the Nantucket seafood pie. Perfect portion and taste. Dessert was also a seasonal special pumpkin sweet potato tort. It was pretty good as well. They offer a great sweet cornbread loaf and rolls... More

This was my first time to The Common Man and our waiter was so nice. Patient and explained many questions we had about menu items. The food is a little pricey but good for a special occasion. We both ordered the seafood casserole and we shared a dessert. We go the blueberry dessert with ice cream. Everything else looked too... More
