I always enjoy The Stage. Last night the crowd was very interesting and of course the restaurant was full. Everyone seemed happy to be there. No wonder why though, the staff are friendly and efficient, the food is delicious and reasonably priced. I had their...Scallops dish for dinner and they were perfect, moist not under or over cooked. Brunch on Sunday is a local favorite, try their Bloody Mary!More

We were visiting the area and decided to stop here for lunch. What a great choice. We were seated immediately and the waitress was very helpful. I ordered the spare rib and my girlfriend had the chicken and kielbasa appetizer. Both of our meals were...excellent and full of flavor. We definitely recommend this place for lunch.More

Great half=way spot to meet my sister/family for lunch. Reservations a must on a Saturday. Friendly staff. My husband and I had chicken parmesan and stage carbonara. Their "Boss's best cocunut cream pie" was awesome. big enough to share.

This is my second review of this restaurant and thankfully nothing has changed. We went for Sunday brunch and the food and the service were excellent. My wife had eggs Benedict and I had an omelet. Both meals were excellent.

Good food and service. We ate lunch inside but saw there were outside tables too. The service was very good and the burgers we had were delicious.

Due to the rating, we stopped in. The service was fantastic and the place had a good atmosphere. We order the Korean Popcorn Chicken. This was very good the spice kicked in a little later and was just at the right level. My wife had...Flank Steak Gyro she said it was good but the sauce could have been more like a tzatziki sauce but overall good. I had the Ruben. The ratio of the sandwich was all off. The ratio of meat to sauerkraut, cheese, and Russian dressing was all off. There was no taste of cheese, the same could be said of the Russian dressing. I did get a occasional taste of the sauerkraut. It was a good corned beef sandwich it was a very bad Ruben.More

I was filling out a requested trip review for a recent vacation and realized. “Hey. I’ve never done a review for my local favorite local place” The Srage is our hands down favorite local place for appetizers. Lunch. Drinks. Dinner. You name it. Their food...is consistently good as are their delicious martinis. The staff are my favorite though. They greet you and take care of you every single time. Autumn, Melissa, Shelby, Sue, Dylan, Kat, (to just name a few) are just the best Whether lunch with a girlfriend. A group of friends. Or my husband. This is consistently our favorite placeMore

I made reservations for lunch at The Stage in Keene as a treat for driving 4 hours to do a favor for a friend. What a treat it was! My husband had the Reuben with fries and I had the Flank Steak Gyro with fries....The server, Dylan, brought me vinegar for my fries and we paired our meals with a dark beer and a cabernet. Everything was delicious, in fact my husband said it was the best Reuben he has had (and he is a connoisseur of Reubens) The service was good without being obsequious, and while we looked at the dessert menu we decided we were too full to do it justice. I would highly recommend The Stage American Bistro.More

We had lunch outside on the square on a beautiful fall afternoon. The server was very personable and prompt. I had a salad with steak added and the steak was a large portion of tender and very flavorful flank steak. My wife's sandwich was good...as well .More

My wife and I just drove up from New Jersey and had dinner at The Stage. It is located right on the Central Square in downtown Keene; a lovely location. The offer outside dining as well but it was too cold the night we were...there. There are a couple of different rooms to eat in; we were in the bar room. The noise level was somewhat loud but not surprising given the activity. Food was good. I had a veal chop Milanese that came with gnocchi. The veal chop was very good but I found the gnocchi a little salty. Service was fast and friendly. Overall, a nice dinner.More

They don't have a "kids menu" but they have burgers and a fried chicken sandwich children may like.
