First, the food here is really good! And if you're going to the Stage House during the spring, summer or fall during good weather and can sit outside, by all means do! The problem comes when you must sit inside. The restaurant is too loud to carry on a conversation with the person you are sitting next to. This includes... More

Suggested by my wife, who was business trip. She had visited the Stage House with colleagues on previous trips. We had a very attentive waiter, so the service was very good. I enjoyed a ceased salad, the house meatloaf, with asparagus and mashed potato sides, which was excellent. The portion was more than plentiful, but the sauce was a "... More

Went there with my wife and sat outside. The staff was great and the atmosphere was awesome. The mushroom ravioli with pesto sauce was great definitely a do over. Also the NY strip was cooked perfect.

We visited this restaurant after we just arrived to Somerset NJ from Denmark. The food I had were really good, I had calamari and 14 OZ grilled Sirloin Steak. The steak was excellent. To the food I had water and an IPA beer. The beer also tasted good. Why then only a 3, that because the restaurant had 11 television... More

What a find. A reasonably priced buffet for Easter. I do believe they do brunch on other Sunday's too. The atmosphere was vibrant. Yes it was noisy but that reminded me of dinners past when all our family was in the same country. We used to get together for holidays and all try to talk at once. As families do.... More

Local spot for good food with a wide choice of house made entrees. It's great in the warm months with outdoor seating and a bbq special. In colder months sitting inside can be a bit noisy, don't go there expecting a quiet conversation unless you sit in one of the rooms that is not the main dining room. The food... More

We went with a large group for a birthday celebration on a Saturday night. We got there at 830 and the place was packed. I cannot speak to the service in the restaurant part. We were in the bar area and it was jammed packed but had great service. We will be repeat customers now!

I have been going to the Stage House in Scotch Plains since I was a kid. I still go there when I am in the area and have had a catered event there which was fantastic. As for the Somerset location, the service is okay, not great. The noise level at dinner time is terrible in the main room. You... More
