Great warm weather eatery!

Outstanding patio/bar area with live music on the weekends. The barbecue is fantastic and should not be missed. I don't recommend eating inside if your hearing is not that good as the acoustics are terrible and can make simple conversation difficult. Aside from that I would highly encourage... read more

Huge outdoor patio/bar with a large indoor restaurant. Homemade sauce/pasta dishes- Lobster Ravioli one of my many favorites. Features live entertainment on selected nights. A must stop, especially on a warm summer's night!

The service at this restaurant was just horrible, it was our first time and our last. The food was okay, not worth the wait. Don't waste you time!

It was packed. The bar was packed. Three deep. Dining room packed.I really hate packed. As in crowded. As in jostling elbows, spilled drinks, and waiters whizzing by with loaded serving trays, that by some miracle were never dropped. In fairness, it was Saturday day night and FOOTBALL season. Did I mention noisy ? Do not wear your hearing aid... More

I've eaten here many times - not because it is so good, but because there are few choices in this area. Usually it is ok, sometimes even good, but tonight this place was terrible. I mean disgustingly terrible. No bread for the table. Salad was $7 of watercress. Never seen that anywhere. My Chicken sandwich was obviously warmed over and... More

Went with my wife and daughter, had made reservations. When we got there the place was packed, a good sign. They took our names and said yes they had our reservation, and we were seated within 5 minutes very impressive. The wait staff were very friendly and offered suggestions when we asked. The food was excellent as was the service.... More

My daughter and I checked out Stage House Tavern while staying in the area for a wedding. I had searched Trip Advisor, and after reading previous reviews, we decided to eat here. My daughter had the Ravioli in a cream sauce, and I had the Reuben Sandwich and a bowl of Beef Barley Soup. We both enjoyed our meals, and... More

I have always had great meals and the drinks are out of this world. It has gotten a bit pricey to make it a regular hang out but for a place for a good meal and to catch up with friends on a quarterly basis it's fine. The bar area is a bit on the loud side especially when there... More

This restaurant is pretty local for us - but I think I would make it a regular hangout even if it weren't! They have a fantastic patio and offer a 'free bbq' every summer that makes it really appealing - we try to do the bbq at least once per summer - but they give you so much delicious food... More

I remember this place when it was called O'Connors many years ago. They had fun things to do on Easter if you came around lunchtime, including the Easter Bunny himself. It has changed hands a couple times since then, (Mainly because of it's confusing entrance and parking lot.) but I hope that it doesn't change hands ever again. The Stagehouse... More
