Description: Backstage, located next to the Warner Theatre in downtown Torrington, serves casual American food from its full "all-day" menu, prepared fresh from scratch. Service begins daily at 11:30am, and the kitchen stays open late on performance evenings for after-theatre dining. Select from crisp salads and hot soups, creative Small Plates, Perfect Burgers of hand formed Angus patties on house-baked rolls, popular sandwiches, and Big Plate comfort favorites. House-made desserts are a specialty. The antique mahogany bar soars 14 feet above the trendy zinc counter, and presides over northwest Connecticut's largest offering of craft-brewed beers. 24 brands are available on tap, with the bottle selection at more than 70. The well-rounded wine list is popularly priced, with several wines offered by the glass. Customer service is a passion at Backstage. Servers and bartenders serve up our unique "Awesome Customer Service," and management is visibly present during all meals.

Backstage offers a good variety of full and light dinners. Try the mussels or the salmon. The wine and beer selection is larger than most restaurants.

Never again, bunch of bad experiences taking clients here. Stick to the Mondaine bar if you actually like this place.

Went here last month with the "guys" for our weds night out. Shared some Buffalo wings for $13!!!! Hello!!! $13 for wings!! And they were average. Also had the Mac and cheese "Big Plate" for $17. Geeez. That also was just so-so. Place is nice inside. Service was good. Was just wayyyyy too expensive for not being great food. Dang, it is Torrington and not West Hartford, knock down the prices!!!!

Last Friday I ordered an app appetizer of flat bread with garlic fresh mozzerella and tomatoes and a grilled cheese. The grilled cheese came with fries i asked to subsitiute the fries with sweet potatoe fries instead the gave me both and charged me for a full order of sweet potatoe fries. The food was very good but rather over priced.
My daughter ordered mac and cheese it ws 17.00 and she said it was small and terrible....
Today a coworker ordered a meatloaf sandwhich and when he went to pick it up it was 18.95 (this is at lunchtime mind you). It was not even a sandwhich. It was a piece of meatloaf, some mashed potatoes and I believe some avacodo.
I am a little disappointed I always LOVED Backstage!

We were here for dinner on a Friday night. There's a beer menu with many options. It's spacious and comfortable. We had the clam chowder and Mediterranean plate for appetizers. Delicious! Our server, Melissa, was awesome. She helped us make the perfect selections. For dinner we had a burger and grilled chicken sandwich. The food was great. The staff were all super friendly. The place was packed. Huge thumbs up!
