My wife and I love the stage. We went this week and the food was particularly good. For starters i had the onion doup and my wife had the soup special, jamacian black bean. Both were excellent. For dinner i had the Brooklyn burger, which was enormous and delicious, and my wife had the blue cheese burger. Service was fine,... More

Been here at least a half dozen times and the food and service is always consistent which is great. Great selection on the menu brought to you by servers who always have a smile on their face. I've never had a bad meal here and I've tried just about everything on the menu. Can get busy so sometimes, so you... More

LOVE the stage! Service is always excellent & the food is always amazing! The braised short ribs are out of this world! Also my number one spot for brunch on the weekends. The Stage is seriously the best restaurant in Keene!

The atmosphere, the food, the drinks, the people.....This place has it all. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. I am particularly fond of the braised spare ribs. They have the best martini in the world! The Big Sexy...wow

Fish sandwich today earned a "C" maximum. The fish itself was nothing exceptional and it was placed on a bun that overwhelmed everything else. A bite of the sandwich provided a sense that one is primarily eating a white bread, non-descript bun which has a bit of fish positioned somewhere in the sandwich. This is not the thing to order...

The restaurant is dark from the outside and at first, we thought they were closed. Inside, the ambiance is nice, with simple decor. Our waitress never smiled once, nor did any of the other staff, except the hostess. The shrimp scampi Casanova was excellent. The veggie burger was terrible, the worst I've ever had. Overall, much too expensive for what... More

Always a great place for dinner..and drinks. A great menu and nightly specials. Good proportion of food for the money, maybe too much food with the Brooklyn burger!! Sunday brunch entree are huge. Just a great restaurant, you can't go wrong..

A little hole in the wall restaurant with great food and fun atmosphere! On the pricier side but it's worth it!

Two weeks ago the weather forecast was calling for 10-14 inches of snow in our part of NH. My husband and I decided to go out for brunch anyhow, and when we found the restaurant we chose closed because of the weather, we walked down the street to The Stage. We were so glad we did! My Eggs Benedict served... More
