The many different foods that are offered here are delicious and there are lots to choose from. To start, they have wonderful breakfasts from eggs to French toast. Great coffee, For lunch, Sandwiches to soup can be enjoyed. Dinner has full meals from 'soup to nuts.' Great burgers too.

The food and service was excellent, glad we came here. The Salmon was well cooked, the Steal Morgan was cooked perfectly. The Calamari was the best my daughter ever had according to her 13 year old opinion. The bread pudding and lava cake were both great.

Stopped by as we were in Keene at lunchtime. Nicely decorated with a Manhattan theme. Well sized and prepared sandwiches and their corned beef was excellent. Attentive waitstaff. We look forward to returning for more of the same.

Restaurant needs a sign - there is none. I had the directions, even OnStar (which turned out to be useless for this specific location), and drove by three times in a confusing area if you are not used to that area of Keene. If you have people in your party who do not walk well, once you locate the restaurant,... More

Thank you for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed your dinner at The Stage. Our sign is being redone at the moment but I'm glad you found us! As in any downtown area, parking can sometimes be an issue but unfortunately that is out of our control. More

Of all the restaurants in Keene I have to say this place is about my favorite. We've been there enough to know most of the waitstaff by name and they are all great. The chef has a talent for presenting fabulous dishes. He has re- invented and fine tuned many of the dishes into masterpieces. Pasta night is a really... More

We always enjoy going to the Stage. Really good food and a fun atmosphere. The food is consistent and there is a great outdoor seating area.

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your lunch especially since you loved our meal on your last visit and gave us a great review. I spoke with the server, who remembered you very well, although remembers the experience a little differently. She tried to solve your problem the best she could and I'm sorry she didn't succeed for you to enjoy... More

My kids had the Belgian waffles with fresh strawberries and whip cream. Sister had an omelette was also great. I had the eggs benik..absolutely delicious. Waitress was wonderful too.

This was my second time at The Stage. First off, the location is excellent. It is located right downtown of beautiful Keene, NH. The atmosphere inside is different but in a good way. It has a New York feel that is very warm and comfortable. I was with a party of 3 and we all loved our food but agreed... More

My wife and I enjoyed a late lunch at the Stage Restaurant in Keene, NH. The building is conveniently located downtown, and the inside is cozy. The hostess was polite and prompt, and agreed to sit us at another table when we found the first table awkward due to some low seating. The waitress was also polite and prompt. The... More
