The stage restaurant is the best restaurant in Keene. All their food is great. The portions can be shared. The staff is very attentive and professional. I eat there every time I go home. I recommend their breakfast especially.

We walked to this restaurant from our hotel in downtown Keen. Very nice atmosphere. Wait staff was great and so was the food. Had a few vegetarian options along with steak, salads, sandwiches, burgers. Something for everyone.

We we're traveling from Maine to Virginia on the scenic back roads and found this gem! Amazing food, very tasty and we'll priced. The Crab Creole was out of the park and the hamburger was right there with it. Service was top notch. Thank you!
