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

Used TripAdvisor reviews to choose this restaurant as a meeting point w/relatives- was crazy busy but in a good, festive way, so we knew we had picked the right place. Then we got our meals and wow- fantastic food. Had the cod, which was a special that night but everyone else in our party ate from the regular menu- none... More

Our server seemed to have a bit of surly attitude. We sat outside on the sidewalk where there are about 6 tables. Our group tried the veg burger, tomato soup, Nantucket salad, wurst skewer, and the tortellini. The wurst was overcooked but everything else was fine.

Just happened to be traveling from northern New Hampshire on secondary road due to heavy traffic on highways which we are want to do many times anyway. It's often a way to experience the serendipity of finding hidden treasures. The center of Keene seems to have a multitude of restaurants some of which were closed on the Sunday we passed... More

I go here whenever I am in Keene. It's right in Central Square, they have outdoor seating and the food is fantastic. I typically have the pancakes that "even Dr. Oz would approve" but lately I have been having the farmers omelet - OMG fantastic! They also have great breakfast sausage-very tasty! The staff is usually pretty prompt and the... More

This is a bit of a local hangout, that consistently surprises with food that seems to get better and better over the years. The fish was really fresh and well prepared. The service was fast and friendly. The prices are reasonable. My only quibble, would be I wished they had a better beer and wine selection to keep up with... More

Stage is a vibrant bistro like restaurant in Keene and offers a good menu with a lot of selection. Food quality is pretty decent. I had a salad nicoise that was underwhelming but that was the wrong thing to order in Keene. But their Reuben and burgers are good and my friend had a steak that he liked as well... More
