“cozy spot great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

The stage is in my eyes a landmark on Central Square in Keene
Been going there for 23+ years the staff is helpful and friendly
The chef daily comes up with great sometimes funky specials to delight all foodies
Breakfasts are large and tasteful. If visiting Keene do not forget the Stage they are sure to please

“It's becoming a tradition”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

We pass through Keene about once a year and had been to The Stage before, enjoyed it, and figured that it was a safe choice, which it was. The special looked attractive, and it was: flavorful, well presented, and a good buy. And our server was pleasant and attentive. All reasons to go back again next time we're in Keene.

“Great food.. Will be returning here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

New to the area traveling to Keene State I chose this place for dinner. Great selection for everybody in your party. My daughter and I first had the French onion soup. Very good and tasty, could of made this my dinner alone it was so good. Then we each had a burger. I had the blue cheese burger, very good. My daughter had the cheddar burger, awesome. The burger was a good size and juicy. You really get a good value for your money, well worth it. Also our waitress was attentive and friendly.
