“Food better than the service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

I am not sure why the service is so slow at the Stage. We love going there for brunch but it takes so darn long. The food was not as good as last time we went. If you are planning on going, make sure you have lots of time!

“Tuesday Night Pasta Special ... nuff said”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012 via mobile

The $12 three course meal on Tuesday's is the best deal in Keene. Appetizer, pasta entree, and desert (all full sized) for $12 with some upcharges for specials or substitutions is well worth it. It's my normal Tuesday while visiting Keene on business. The spicy cajun penne is wonderful. The pasta is cooked al dente, not the overboiled fare you dould expect for a $12 restaurnat meal. My boss swears The Stage has the best steaks in town, but I don't usually eat steak at restaurants so I wouldn't know.

“Terrific Blue Cheese dressing!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2012

I had the Maxx salad with homemade blue cheese dressing - the salad was great, I added chicken. The blue cheese dressing was very good - i had to have more. Had very interesting items on the menu and they all sounded great. The locals highly recommended this place and it was a great lunch spot.
