Three of us tried to grab a bite to eat at the Stage House this afternoon, we were greeted immediately by the hostess and seated. Our waiter came over and took our drink and lunch order promptly....after that he was not to be found....It was extremely annoying since I order a wedge with parm crusted chicken, no tomatoes and extra...

We walked to the Tavern for a Saturday after thanksgiving lunch. Although the restaurant was busy we were shown to our table ( for 9 ) only short 10 minute after we arrived. Although the service was slow service was very friendly. The tavern style food was well prepared and was simplistically presented. We will return

This historic Inn has been a central part of the community since the early 18th century, and the atmosphere is truly amazing. Whether you eat in the main dining room, with the low ceiling and wooden pillars, in the bar with the giant tv screens, or in the outside open air space, the tavern has something to offer everyone. We... More

Live in the area. Always loved coming here. Tonight very disappointed. All of the drinks came out at different times. We ordered a bottle of wine at the same time which came out so long after. Food was good ... Felt very rushed. Just finished apps and dinner was on its way. Ordered dessert coffee and after dinner drinks ...... More

We have been here several times before. Fantastic ravioli and sandwiches. We came today for an anniversary party with 24 family members. We had Joe taking care of us and he was fantastic. No one had to wait any unreasonable time for anything. He was attentive and on top of anything we needed. Food was great as usual especially the... More

We ate outside under the pergola. The food is very good as is the service, they have nice beers on tap and other drinks also. They make a very good burger and have some nice appetizers.

Went here on a Thursday night with some friends. It was a young crowd and very, very crowded. It took a while to get a drink but since I was with a great group of ladies we had a nice time overall.

Great steak dishes in a huge building modelled after a barn with ample outdoor seating. Been there several times over the years and was always satisfied with the meals. Great bar as well.

Stage House used to be a very high end restourant serving fine cuisine. It has transformed to a nice local place to have a meal. Burgers, salads, ravioli,soups all very good. Nice casual atmosphere.
