I've been to The Stage twice . . .just keeps getting better. Often recognized by locals as the place to go, seasonal dishes, great specials, incredible presentation and balance with side dishes and perfect portions. Reservations needed, fills up fast. Staff is professional and focused on enjoyable dining experience. Looking forward to my next visit.

The food was good and the prices are in our budget. Everyone enjoyed their meal and drinks. The lava cake was soooo good.

We visit this spot a few times a year while traveling for work. Normally it is consistent and reliable for a good dinner at a reasonable price for the area. However, this past time we visited, I called to make a reservation as I normally do for their Tuesday pasta night. I said 6:30 and the response was "we aren't... More

I have not been to the stage in years but they have a solid reputation for good food and service but not exciting.

We were very impressed with our Saturday night dinner here on a cold winter night. We were visiting the town for only one night and a few people around town recommended the restaurant. It was our last night of a 12 night New England visit and we were looking for a strong end to our trip. Needless to say my... More

The Stage Restaurant is centrally located in the downtown area. We were seated at the front of the restaurant, where our view was limited to the window (a nice view of the gazebo) the entryway (which was pretty drafty on a very cold winter's evening-although they did try to block the cold with heavy velvet curtains), and the tables to...
