As an older person, I would not go there for dinner or late night drinks as it is too noisy. I would go there earlier in day and ask to sit in the quiet section there is a special senior menu offered early in the day which is a great deal and great food. I also love sitting outside when... More

I've been here in the summer and winter.... Summer is favored because of the outside dining and I think food tastes better outside. Had a great experience. Service was good no complaints. Winter being inside it's a big place and the noise level is fairly high. Not to my likings. Again service and food is good. No complaints. It's worth... More

I've been going there since it opened. You can't beat it during football season or summer(free outdoor seating bbq). My problem is I have to scan thru the menu several several times to pick a meal. I' ve had alot of their entrees and they're good but their menu is just ahhh. Nothing jumps out at me. I think they... More

My neighbors love this place, but I don't. It's loud, the service is generally slow, and the food is just okay. In the summer months, they at least have a nice outdoor seating area. Until then, I don't plan to go back.

Stage House is a staple eatery in Somerset. It has changed hands and names a couple of times but you can not go wrong here. There is live music on the weekend and when the weather is right, a large outdoor eating area with a bar. The food is great and the service is too. If you like ravioli, they... More

My girlfriend and I were out for the evening to see a play at the local theater. The GPS gave us a few choices and the name sounded interesting. We were not disappointed. The place was hopping for a Saturday Night. Reservations are recommended. Without reservations we had a nice bar table. We had appetizers, drinks, salad and main course.... More

Since this restaurant became Stage House a few years ago, it has become the spotlight of our area. There are very few local GOOD restaurants that serve American food. The owner has wisely enlarged and improved the restaurant which now includes outdoor dining and bars during the warmer months despite this being a historic location.

That being said we agreed as a whole that we should visit many other area (20 mile radius) restaurants before... More

Attended a private luncheon on a Sunday. We had about 30 + people in attendance. The restaurant was already busy (comfortable busy). The service was prompt, friendly and attentive. Additionally, food orders were accurate and came out quickly. Our table commented how great our waitress was. Wish we had gotten her name to be able to mention her. My husband... More
