Since this restaurant became Stage House a few years ago, it has become the spotlight of our area. There are very few local GOOD restaurants that serve American food. The owner has wisely enlarged and improved the restaurant which now includes outdoor dining and bars during the warmer months despite this being a historic location.

recommended by a friend, family just moved into the area so off we go. Service very good, Food ok at best . . . . we had 5 different meals and no one was bowled over by what they ate. That being said we agreed as a whole that we should visit many other area (20 mile radius) restaurants before... More

Attended a private luncheon on a Sunday. We had about 30 + people in attendance. The restaurant was already busy (comfortable busy). The service was prompt, friendly and attentive. Additionally, food orders were accurate and came out quickly. Our table commented how great our waitress was. Wish we had gotten her name to be able to mention her. My husband... More

Great service. Good food! When they got a part of our order incorrect, they boxed us up, told us to keep it, didn't charge us and immediately brought the correct order out! ou don't find that often anymore! Good customer service!

My husband has eaten here loads of times when in NJ, travelling with him he wanted to bring us to the Stage house! We ordered drinks, food and a nachos to share for starters. Our Nachos arrived, the portion was massive, but the outside cheese, toms and other toppings were hot, the inside was freezing cold, we sent it back... More

My family and I were looking for a light dinner on a Friday evening. We decided to try The Stage House in Somerset. The shared parking lot was crowded but the restaurant can seat crowds of people. The bar was hopping. There was no wait for a table in this noisy dining room and we were seated right away. The... More

I have enjoyed going to stage House Tavern in Somerset for a few years. During the summer it's very nice to sit out on the patio and enjoy the fresh air. My favorite menu items include the wedge salad grilled and the homemade ravioli with seafood and the pesto cream sauce. The food is consistent and delicious.

As with all buffets I believe it's a hit or a miss as far as quality, service and ambiance. The restaurant itself is very nice. A spacious dinning area, bar, and in nice weather, an outdoor seating area. I have two criticisms as far as the quality of food and service. Let me first comment on the service. It was... More

Food and service is always prompt and delicious with lots of categories to choose from. Great bar scene but very noisy. If you want quiet ask for the porch in the front of the restaurant. This place is almost always crazy busy so you may have to wait if you don't beat the rush. Also has a large outdoor patio... More
