This place has been around for years. Great burgers, good brunch. Cocktails are awesome. My favorite place to visit when I am in town.

First time to The Stage. Summary: Super service. Super Wedge Salad. Super cocktails. Atmosphere is comfortable. This is the "go-to" place in Keene!

I have had dinner at this restaurant several times and it was always very good. This was the first time I went there for brunch. They do not take reservations for Sunday brunch. When we arrived at noon we were told there would be a 40 minute wait. As we stood outside deciding how we were going to kill time,... More

I have gone to The Stage numerous times and usually it is a wonderful experience. However, the last two times we have gone, something went wrong. When we had an early brunch in January, it was obvious that my Eggs Benedict had been sitting under the hot light waiting for my spouse's waffle to be finished. His dish was piping... More

The Stage has been our go to all around favorite local restaurant for almost 16 years. However, eversince their expansion, things have gone steadily downhill. The prices continue to increase while the portions decrease. The warm, welcoming atmosphere has gone by the wayside and you no longer feel like"everybody knows your name and they're always glad you came". We've always... More

The menu has a fairly large selection but unusual combinations make if it difficult for me to choose an meal of my liking. Unfortunately my fish was serviced at room temperature. The... More

This place rocks and is often full up so best to try and make reservations. Food is terrific -- something for everyone; daily specials; great brunch on Saturday and Sunday goes until 2:00; regular menu served after that. If you want a more secluded and quiet table opt for the left side of the restaurant; If you like eating at... More

I don't know how this place can offer such top notch foods at these reasonable prices. Love the Reuben and the Pasta Carbonara. Breakfast is wonderful too! Make a reservation because it's packed even on a Tuesday night.

We went to dinner on a Fnriday evening. We were able to get a table after a shirt wait. The waitress was very cheerful and knowledgeable as we asked about the food and drink menu. The bread and olive oil was delicious. The appetizer of roasted Brussels sprout with maple dressing was delicious The steaks were very tender and a... More
