    The Common Man is a good place for families. I'd compare it to Applebee's. In a city full of phenomenal restaurants I would never choose to go back simply because the price and quality doesn't rate compared to many other fantastic places.

    This review is for the rest stop locations. They don't clean the grill so if you order anything cooked then it's cooked on the same surface as the pancakes and gluten bread etc. all they had was a gluten free bun but nothing to put in it except boars head deli meats. Not great for a celiac toddler.

    Everything was awesome! Waitress was so friendly. Home fries are gluten free, as well as my French toast! So they have bread and buns (udi's) available! Was busy, but the service was fast regardless and food was wonderful! So many options, only downside is no GF batter, but still delicious!

    I have Celiac Disease and my family and I stopped on the way back from the White Mountains to CT. Fantastic GF menu (steak, fish, shrimp, chicken) choices at reasonable prices and the staff and cooks got it! I had mussels in a delicious broth that came with GF bread with a toothpick marked "allergy". Also shared polenta ragout with chicken added with my hubby which was excellent. Would have ordered a GF dessert (brownie sundae, creme brûlée or almond torte) except I am stuffed! Non Celiac family members had pork sliders and chicken pot pie and loved both. Will definitely go back!

    Excellent options with their own gluten free menu. They have a separate gluten free menu. Waitress very knowledgeable. They even offered warm gluten free bread as an alternative to rolls. Highly recommended.

    Amazing GF (celiac aware) staff and plenty of options on the GF menu. One thing I really like is that they have GF alternatives to fries that are actually yummy (sometimes I get tired of side salads!). Even GF dessert options!! Would recommend to any celiac friends.

    This restaurant was fantastic! They had a great gluten free menu with many options. We enjoyed the flatbread appetizer, pot roast, sirloin tips & brownie sundae. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent!

    Had a great gf dinner here had great gf menu. Had big portions. For dessert had a yummy gf brownie sundae. Have gf Udi bums for sandwiches. If you are used to Boston prices, prices were good. 78 dollars for two entrees. 2 drinks and one dessert.

    Staff was knowledgeable and helpful. We got prime rib, it was an awful cut and completely overdone. No taste in the whole meal. Not rushing back here unfortunately

    I had a great experience here!!! I have multiple food allergies and they catered to every one of them. The restaurant manager personally served me. It was nice to be able to enjoy dinner out at a restaurant.

    2014: The Common Man has a gluten free menu with a lot of selections. I had a farm truck salad and roast chicken and it was all delicious. Please note that the GF menu on their website is a little out of date, but there are lots of choices. The non-GF members of the group were also very happy. 2015: I went back twice in Summer 2015 and had a great experience both times. The Pot Roast is gluten free, including the gravy and was delicious! Highly recommended!

    Server was super duper sweet! Manager sweet as pie. However the food was awful! Awful! The atmosphere was adorable old New England but the food was cooked in the same era. Manager very kindly took food off the bill for us. We ran away as fast as our feet could take us.

    Although they don't have a gluten free menu, the business manager was very knowledgable! He went through the whole menu with me identifying every dish that could be gluten free and there were many options. He then outlined how the kitchen would handle my order to prevent cross-contamination. I also ended up with a waitress that has many family members with celiac disease. Probably not a coincidence, but it was wonderful reassurance that I would be well taken care of!

    Just so grateful a rest area has gluten free burgers! Odd they don't list it on the menu but I asked and they do:)

    Chose this one based on reviews. Disappointed with the fact that fries are not GF and their fried potatoes (breakfast option) are cross-contaminated. Plus, my food was cold. Will maybe try again.

    Was very accommodating for a GF 2 year old. However, the Udi's pizza (which he loves typically) was very over cooked, and he didn't eat anything. Hopefully it was just a bad night. Will give it another chance, as everything else was very pleasant.

    Had dinner here tonight after our five-mile hike up Red Hill and not only was the place delicious but the servers were all incredibly friendly and very helpful when it came to me having celiac. They have a separate gluten-free menu with a variety of options, and if you're like me and like salmon but not maple, they will work with you to create your own dish; I had salmon with lemon and veggies. They also made sure to let me know what was gluten free on everyone else in my parties plate incase I wanted to try, and that all of their dips were gluten free if I wanted to sample. Would go back again!

    The Common Man restaurants are always accommodating for gluten free options. At the new welcome center they added a diner and general store. I had a turkey sandwich on a gluten free roll. It was a great option on the road. They don't have a separate gluten free menu or they probably would have received 5 stars

    The Common Man had always been a favorite in my family and this was my first time going since going off gluten. They have a good gluten free menu including a brownie sundae. The server took great care of me and even brought me a separate basket with a slice of gf bread in it when bringing out the bread basket. The food was excellent!

    So delicious! Friendly staff and great food. EDIT: Went again during ski season and it just was not good, not even regarding gluten...just in general. Sent my steak back because it tasted like cheese. Got the second one back and it was still awful; we named it "slimy steak." Bummed. It was SO much better in the fall.

    Good size gluten free menu, including dessert, and of course it's delicious, all the c-man restaurants are! Update: I have eaten here numerous times now with no problems. They go out of their way to accommodate me, tonight even customizing one of the specials for me.
