I recently ate here on 2 separate occasions. On both occasions the service was extremely friendly. The food was amazing and the atmosphere is one tough to beat! Incredibly cozy and quaint. I enjoyed the downstairs but I would say the upstairs was my favorite. They have comfy couches and even cards and trivia on the tables for entertainment! I... More

We had heard of this place and were expecting plain food, along the lines of meatloaf or burgers. They had that, but we ordered the autumn specials and were pleasantly surprised by the sophisticated dishes and flavors. Everything was not just good but thoughtfully put together. The service was excellent as well. We ended up eating there three times over... More

We were looking for a relaxed evening. This filled the bill. Food was good and the cheese plate was open for everyone to taste and it was great.

Great place to chill. Food fantastic , quite a buzzing atmosphere for what appears to be a small sleepy town. Waiting staff were good fun. Enjoyed the trivial pursuit questions on every table... Even though as Brits the American version only out fixed us a couple of times.

We had a very nice lunch, reasonably priced. The seasonal choices, ( I had the Mushroom Bleu Flatbread) was a nice touch. The upstairs is very casual with sofas and easy chairs, as well as tables.

We were definitely off the beaten path and tired. Finding The Common Man proved to set this little town in good stead. The wait staff was quite friendly. We ordered seafood and were totally delighted with our servings. The "after-dinner treat" that came with the meal was pieces of white chocolate bark. The restaurant was quite eclectic in that it...
