Excellent service and tasty food. They had run out of the mushroom ravioli, but the apps were great! The crab cakes and the Szechuan cauliflower did the trick! There were no mocktails on the drink menu, so the bartender made a lovely grapefruit mocktail. Lucas was a great server on the back patio. The back patio is nice and quiet; I'd definitely go back!

Great food all around (had the Kale Ceasar salad, Wild Mushroom Ravioli and in-house donuts).
Service was excellent; staff is very knowledgeable about the food and wine selections, and they take great care to make sure you're having the best experience.
We sat on the back patio, which was cozy.
All in all very happy with our dining experience at The Commoner Bar Room!

Excellent patio at the back of the restaurant. There were seat settings for 4 groups.

Excellent ambiance with heaters beside each table which also acted as barriers between each table.

We were served by Kaleb. Excellent customer service!

Saw the Commoner Board on IG and instantly wanted to try it. I was not disappointed AT ALL!! EVERY thing was delicious!! The fried chicken, ribs, sliders, caeser salad, cornbread and even the fries were all so well prepared and tasty. Our server Sarah was super awesome and cautioned us that it was a huge platter and it was. Service was amazing, atmosphere was perfect.. I will be back as I need to try the crab cakes!!

Got the Commoner's Board - great food and presentation. Server's were quite attentive and polite. If I had a gripe, its that their Gin drinks are pretty plain - needs to have a bit more flavour than just a lemonade. Would definitely go back though!

We sat out on the patio and ate from the sharing menu on Saturday night. The server was super friendly and helpful. The bar had built wooden planter boxes and placed them on the outside of the patio (because the patio is actually on the road) and I thought it was a great idea. I really felt a lot more private and safe from passing cars because of the planters. The restaurant inside is beautiful and all brand new. Definitely worth checking out, I'm sure it can't be easy launching a new place at such a difficult time.
