One of the best meals, ever.

A friend told me to check this place out when I was in Keene. It is phenomenal. I was disappointed that the special of the day, the steak tips, were all gone by the time I sat down at 7:30, but the braised short ribs were off the chart. Served over perfectly cooked beets. I finished off with the... read more

I've been going there for years. Family run & owned with top quality food and atmosphere. Great for a family outing, time with friends or a couples night out. Also great for businesses. If you dine solo, you won't be disappointed either.

Had a really nice dinner sitting outside, lots to look at, very good service and the food was delicious and generous. We took lots home for more enjoyment. Over all, a very delightful experience. We look forward to the next time!

We've been there for drinks, dinners & their brunch. I like the place, but like it a little less since they redecorated the bar. It used to have this cool Art Deco, NYC vibe to it, but that's changed. & not for the better. The drinks are amazing. I swear, get a cocktail! It'll kick your butt. The meals are... More

Stopped in here yesterday for a late lunch with friends. Very pleasant atmosphere and everything was yummy. I had a refreshing Moscow Mule in a beautiful copper mug. Perfect drink for that hot, muggy day. We all ordered something different and were extremely pleased with our choices. I had their fried shrimp over pasta. Not sure what that shrimp was... More

Great Food, Great Drinks, and Great service what more do you need? Drove around on a business trip and this restaurant always had a crowd which is a great sign.

The restaurant theme was what made this place so good. Styled after an NYC type restaurant they serve American style food with some other worldly options. The steak sandwich was scrumptious but I really enjoyed my buffalo chicken salad. The staff is friendly and quick.

We have always wanted to try the Stage Restaurant because we heard such good things about the food and drinks....as we rode around the circle looking for a dinner spot in town I spotted a parking spot right in front. Good sign we thought. We took an outside seat on this great evening. Our waitress Jeanie was very attentive and... More

This is a great little restaurant. We have had lunch here on many occasions and always found our meal to be excellent. Outside seating is nice in such a cute town. Salads and sandwiches are terrific for lunch. Service is always attentive and speedy. This place is a gem!

In town for business and stopped at The Stage after reading the reviews. Great lunch had by all. Our server was attentive. Food was excellent. They claim to have the best Caesar dressing and I must admit it was pretty darn good. Cute tables outside as well. I recommend if you are in town.
