Had a very nice lunch at The Stage. The recent expansion is very nice. Portions are generous - consider sharing. Nice place for lunch.

Great place to gather for dinner, lunch or a cocktail. Updated renovation makes this place the place to go in Keene. Great food and awesome martini list. At the head of the circle.

The Stage always provides a wonderful dining experience. Try it any weekday evening for an even quieter relaxing meal. Their daily selections include diverse dishes made using fresh ingredients, well beyond the limitations of just buying local.

We used to love this place but in the last year and a half, it's really gone down hill. Not sure what happened to it, but I've heard the same thing from several people around town. The food is inconsistent and the service is only ever okay, at best (with the exception of Sue, the bartender, who is a lovely... More

Although this restaurant has an extensive menu, my favorite has been the Blackened Chicken Ceasar Salad for lunch. Just doesn't get any better. Locally owned, I've known George and his mother for many, many years and their recent expansion makes the dining experience even more enjoyable. Friendly staff and good service make this a restaurant you must visit. Wait until... More

Enjoyed our dinner with friends. The Braised Short ribs and Salmon dinners were excellent. The martini's are delicious, too.

This is our go to restaurant in Keene. The food is reliably good and the staff is well trained. Although the space was comfortable before the restaurant has just gone through a successful expansion/renovation. The bartender here may well be the best in town. Highly recommended.
