Predictably expensive, too much food, loud and crowded. Just not my idea of worth a return visit. Touristy. But, hey, that's what draws people who like this sort of thing.

We ate here the evening after I had run a half marathon. The portions are always fair and the bartenders are always friendly.

Sat in lounge bar area every time in coming here. There are games by chairs to play while waiting. Crackers and cheese are to your offering free. Staff was nice. Definitely chicken wings, mussels, and pizza are always awesome!!

My husband and I stayed in Concord for one night and our hotel recommended The Common Man. We ate at a table at the bar as there was a wait for the dining room. The Common Man offers a really cozy New England atmosphere and home-style cooked meals. Our waitress was really friendly and she took great care of us.... More

The place is cozy and welcoming. Wood is all around and the drinks/cocktails are really well prepared. Of all places I've had dinner at duri my stay in New England, this is definitely one of the most memorable. The food was good, and the tablecloth wig the sofas and environment left a strong impression in my mind.

We went to the Common Man for dinner recently. We went in and were told that there was a 60 minute wait, but we could check the bar tables which were first come first serve. As we checked the bar which was full, we noticed 4-5 tables that were empty, which made us wonder why the 60 minute wait. There... More

Amazing atmosphere. Amazing food. Decent pricing. It's a must visit. I would suggest calling ahead, great bar lounge as well as great family seating area. We have been to many of their locations and they are all very nice.

From the moment you walk into this restaurant, you can tell that it is going to be a fun experience. The tables have brown paper "tablecloths", but generously plump cloth napkins. The menu is large and varied, and there are nightly specials. The servers are all pros, since the restaurant prides itself on having staff with longest average service of... More

My wife and I have eaten here several times since the restaurant was built to replace the CONCORD CITY DINER (which was more like the TIlton Diner or Airport Diner in Manchester). The building is fancy and the atmosphere is pleasant but I have never found the food to be very good, and it is overpriced. I wish they would... More
