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

had lunch on Main st. in Keene and enjoyed the Cod fish sandwich and great fries. My husband had a chicken sandwich w all the trimmings and it was very good. Service was also good considering they were very busy on the Labor day wknd. The menu had a nice selection which would please both adults and kids.

I've been to the stage many times for both breakfast and dinner. This place is a must for breakfast... try the pecan pancakes. OMG. But, this review is really for the excellent dinner I had recently. They had a special that night of pork chops, green beans and mash potatoes. Sounds mundane eh? It was delicious. The chops were cooked... More

Good service, a cozy atmosphere and an exceptional meal is like hitting the jackpot when dining out. The sauce that accompanied the Bouillabaisse would be worth a weekly visit if we lived closer.

The Stage offers a good variety of fare. don't be afraid to order the great tasting burger for dinner! they have a nice selection of soups and better dinners. The small bar is a gathering place for the more mature crowd and regulars are always friendly. A good family establishment worth the visit

Had a great late Sunday breakfast at The Stage. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Waitress was pleasant. They were very busy! Actually probably could have used a little more staff for the crowd they had going. I had the Southwestern Omelet -- really good! I would eat here again.

You can tell by the level of traffic in the bar, the restaurant & the outdoor seating that this is a popular place! Fortunately we arrived early & didn't need reservations, but by the time 6:00 rolled around on a Monday night, it was filling up fast. The service was spot on, drinks were honest & the food was superb!... More
