Keene is a lovely town and dining at The Stage Restaurant made our stay in Keene a pleasant surprise. This is a very busy restaurant, so you either need a reservation, get there early or you will need to be patient and wait for a table. We didn't have a reservation and had to wait about 45 minutes for a... More

A hopping place with excellent 'new American' style cuisine and very good service. Outdoor seating in good weather right on the square.

I loved sitting outside enjoying Keene new Hampshire. I had the salad with cranberries and nuts, and it was the best. My husband had a chicken breast sandwich and was impressed too! Plan to visit again. Good enough to be the reason to visit Keene.

We love it hear for brunch. Delicious omelets. My favorite is the fresh veggie..Best place in town for brunch but it is only served on weekends. Service is always good too. They have a very good lunch and dinner also.

Outside dining in the heart of Keene downtown. This place is right in front of the downtown circle. Plenty of parking on the street. It was a sunny day but because of the tree cover not hot while eating. Food was very good. I had a burger that was cooked medium well the first time with fries. I mention this... More

Loved my Eggs Ranchero, my friends enjoyed the Hash, the Benedict, and the omelets! The location right behind the Gazebo on the main square was formerly a small grocery store. Still has the original tin ceiling.

This is a small restaurant with cramped tables, but overlook that and you will be rewarded with wonderful food. Three of the four of us had the "Virtual Salmon" which was delicious. Their onion soup and caesar salad were also great. The desserts were equally wonderful. The only disappoint was that they offer no bread or rolls with the meal.... More

We went on the day of the Keene Music Festival and the place was very busy. We sat outside and saw a lot of the food go by us - it all looked delicious. We felt like seafood and pasta, so we started with the fried calamari. As it happens, our favorite part is the octopus, and their dish included... More

I differ with these folks politically, but hey, this is the US where that is free to happen AND this is about food and service. Indeed. I really love everything about this restaurant - the food, the service, portion sizes and the NYC ambiance. A European touch of flavoring. I often bring business folks here for lunch - I am... More
