The craftsmanship in the decor and food is beyond excellent. Friendly service and healthy meals. I love taking guests there when they come visit me at the lake. My lady friends love the teas and brunch there. It is a place that just makes you want to stay and visit and soak up the atmosphere.

Located in an old hotel in historic downtown Warsaw. The décor is awesome and the view of Truman Lake is breath-taking. The prices might seem a little high. But it is worth every penny. The sandwiches are made on homemade bread and the dressings on the salads are also made in-house. Be sure to take your camera and appetite!

The building, once an old hotel has been converted and decorated... More

So I have had lunch at Common Ground several times a year for the past few years. Stumbled in on day as I needed to kill some time. Once inside, the first thing you see is the elaborate woodwork. The building has been restored splendidly. Walk around and see the craftmenship that went into place here. Next sit down and... More

This is an extremely interesting place to dine, and I mean that in a good way! The restaurant's interior is very unique. You'll want to have a look around and explore a bit after you place your order. Service was fast, and our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable. Salads and hot sandwiches seem to be the... More
