This is a very nice restaurant with great character. It is a building from the 1700s. The staff were great. The food was awesome. Large variety of different foods. They have complimentary crackers, dips and cheese while you are waiting.

Food was fine, drinks were fine... service not so great. Server made it clear she couldn't wait for us to leave and was less than friendly. It was closing time and we understood that, but its not hard to be polite.

The atmosphere of the place is very nice, and the food was very good, but the service had a lot to be desired.

What I love about Common Man is that there is always room to relax like home. Just come in, head upstairs, and find a seat. Then the friendly service begins. The relaxed atmosphere in the upstairs lounge is the best. Complimentary cheese/dip and crackers, comfortable...More

Hadn't been here in years, but we were taken here for the Sunday Brunch for my husband's birthday. They had quite an assortment at the buffet tables. I have some dietary restrictions so couldn't try everything. The scrambled eggs were good and the Santa Fe...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.
