    Excellent GF menu and my Reuben and potato salad were great. The service was very slow on a rainy day but the waitress was unfailingly cheerful. Wish I lived closer.

    I've eaten here many times and they always seem to mess up my GF order by adding some kind of gluten. I always end up sending it back.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    Concord Common Man. Great atmosphere. Very nice, plentiful GF menu including baked onion soup, flatbread, pot roast and several seafood selections. The most delicious brownie sundae too. Impressed. Very busy Friday evening so kitchen was slower than usual but service was very good.

    Amazing!! We went purely upon recommendations here and I am so glad. Wait was pretty long but they have the cutest lounge area where they offer cheese and crackers (good for my non-gf littles) and wine (for me!). Large selection of gf options, knowledgeable and friendly staff. I got the "almost escargot" and the smokehouse burger on a gf bun. Food was prepared separately, huge portions and absolutely delicious. They also have gf desserts! Can't wait to go back!!

    when traveling it can be hard to find gluten free that's good. The Tilton Diner is part of the Common Man restaurants, it's great. Had a real burger on a grilled Udi's roll with a side of Cole slaw, awesome. Also ate at another of their places, Fosters Boiler Room, another great place!

Super nice guy & we arrived very late after traveling, at the end of his shift & you would have never known. Thank you! We will definitely be back!

    I went with my Celiac 10 year old. They have lots of choices. They have complementary GF crackers to put with the cheese spread they provide. That is New England style for you. It was great. He got a burger with a bun, side Caesar salad and a huge GF brownie sundae. The fries have a cross contamination issue but it was very good.

    We had a great dinner here with our two kids (one of them our 9 year old daughter with celiac). Our daughter had the burger with gf bun and mashed potatoes. They brought GF bread to the table when we sat down. The waitress was very knowledgeable and knew all about celiac, I barely had to explain. Thank you to other for your positive reviews recently, this is exactly why we stopped here!

    We had a great dinner and experience at this restaurant. My husband and daughters who are not gluten free were very happy with their dinners and I who has had celiac for 15 years was very happy with their separate gluten free menu. I had pot roast with gravy, mashed potatoes and carrots-- delicious. I also splurged on the torte. Delicious again. The waitress was very helpful... thank you!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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 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.
