First time to the Stage. Clean! Very friendly staff! Had brunch. Food was phenomenal. Definitely going to make this a new favorite stop. Can’t wait to go back. It’s a “must”!

We had a great lunch at The Stage. Portions were generous here. Turkey club fed two and the 3 egg omelette was equally as generous. Service was good also. A good stop.
