I had the most delicious scallops and we had a party of five who all ordered assorted meals. Everyone enjoyed their meal. They had the best mashed potatoes I have tasted in a long time. The waitress was very attentive and let us gab away and did not interrupt us at all.

I had the prime rib and it was delicious. Hubby had meatloaf. Said it was good but "not like mom's". Enjoyed the crab cake appetizer and mushroom soup. Overall very good!

The site of this restaurant originally belonged to a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The food was terrific especially the Haddock. We went back twice during our 8 day stay.

We went to the Common Man in Windham a few weeks ago with my family and our friends and their kids. Now, we have been to the Common Man many times over the years and every once and a while we get a meal that is just 'ok'. Well, tonight dinner was very sub par. I was not very hungry... More

The service and food were excellent. I would recommend the escargot and pot roast. You can't go wrong!

This was on St. Patrick's day and they were not all that busy. We were sitting at the bar and a bartender was right in front of us talking to a waitress and he said something like it's you and me closing tonight, and the waitress said sarcastically, oh yes I'm soooo glad I'm here tonight. He laughed and agreed.... More

If you travel in New Hampshire, you will find Common Man Restaurants throughout the state. This was my third visit to the location in Merrimack and each time has been great. Three of us went to lunch and sat upstairs in the lounge in one of the small side rooms with comfortable chairs and a coffee table. You can have... More

This was our 2nd time here and the review is mixed. The person cooking the burgers and fries upstairs cares about his food quality and the staff downstairs does not. The apps are inconsistent and at both ends of the chart. The mixed grill my daughter had last visit was perfect but this time her chicken was cold,crab cake reheated... More

We arrived and found a parking spot close to the door...sometimes the place is so busy it need parking lot attendants to keep order. The menu is varied from appetizers, burgers, "New England", and more expensive steak and sea food items. I had forgotten about the free cracker and cheese bar...good crackers. Service was prompt and professional. I had the... More
