A word from Backstage Pub and Grill
Backstage Pub is under new ownership since August 2012. It is a neighborhood tavern with a catchphrase of "Enter As Strangers; Leave As Friends". And that is exactly how everybody feels when stopping in. We offer 14 different draft beers, focusing on local craft selections, and a full menu until midnight every day. Come find out why cast and crew members from all of the Proctors shows choose the Backstage Pub as a place they spend their down time at. We are family friendly, with dart boards upstairs. Also available is a 66 person private banquet room for all of your events.

    The food and pricing was good/average. I cannot find anything bad to say about the place, but the only really extraordinary thing was the service. Our waitress was very nice and helpful, very on top of our table. We were trying someplace new before a show at Proctors, though, and probably won't go out of our way to go back here.

    6:30 reservation made for an 8:00 show at Proctors. Just enough time so if there again, might need a bit more time. No complaints though, servers very attentive, food came out hot, and very good. Great selection of food--mainly sandwiches, burgers, & salads w/several entrees. Something for every taste. Seated upstairs which is just one room w/perhaps a dozen tables. No ambiance but great for larger parties as downstairs is mainly bar w/some tables & could get noisy. Great place for before any shows though--literally out the back door of Proctors, good food, good service, and very reasonable. Who could ask for more!!

    even though we made a reservation, we were seated in the bar at a high top. all others who came in went upstairs for their reserved seats to a dining room??? I am not sure we needed to make the reservation, even though each person who did not go directly to the bar was asked if they and a reservation. I was disappointed in our seats. Also, my dinner was supposed to come with bread or rolls but none were ever served.

    I have had several meals at the Back Stage Pub and as always they have been great. The portions are large, I usually take half my meal home. The wait staff is extremely friendly and they all seem to help each other. The BSP is conveniently located. I've never been late for a show!!

    Our experience was great. Casey was a great host, very friendly and extremely helpful. The food was excellent and we met some people there. We will plan on going there for lunch each time we attend Proctors on Thursday afternoons. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of someone like Casey to be so friendly and helpful. Thanks for a very good experience. Lew Varney

    I've been there several times before shows at Proctor's. Service is always on the slow side, but the good food usually balances that out. There is however no excuse, at 6:00 on a Saturday night to be out of decaf coffee and milk.

    Good pub food. Kitchen very slow, waited an hour for food, people who were seated well after us receievd their orders before us. Appetizer of wings came out with wrong sauce, sent back ended up cancelling it because our main course aarived. Wait staff was very good apologized profusely for the problems. I would go again, any restaurant can have an off night.

  • The location near Proctors
    Disappointed
    Dined on 2/8/2014
    The location near Proctors was the primary reason we decided to try the pub. We were seated at a table next the kitchen door and every time the outside door opened, a rush of cold air flooded into our seating area. There was also a draft from the kitchen which only aggravated the situation. The back and forth of the staff was annoying as well. We were cold (very cold) most of our dinner and our food (which we thought was only fair) got cold well before we finished our meal. They need to improve the seating arrangements, especially in cold weather, and work on the quality of the food. Sorry I couldn't give them a better rating.

    The food was just ok but the time it took to get the food was way too long, roughly 40 minutes. The worst part is it has happened before so I doubt if we would be coming back again.

    We have very unpleasant experience at The Backstage Pub. We had reserved a table for 6:15 we arrived and were seated right away. We had tickets for the 8;00 show at Proctors. Our meal was served at 7:45 so we had our meal packaged to go. The stress we were put in at the restaurant was not pleasant at all. Would we recommend this place no not if you are going to the show.

    Appetizer did not come out before the meal, it was served with dinner. Wings were okay, but didn't taste any garlic. My quesadilla was wrong; ordered pulled pork but received chicken. I understand it was very busy being a show night at Proctor's, but they must deal with this issue all the time, given their close proximity to Proctor's. They should put more staff on during the dinner rush hour. We had plenty of time to eat (6 pm arrival) and get to the show for 8 pm

    This is the second time we have dined at backstage. We were greeted and immediately seated. The drinks hit the spot. They have extensive offerings of sandwiches, wraps, salads, and full dinners. We enjoyed our appetizer (again) and our sandwiches were great. Beside the good food and friendly service...its located directly behind Proctor's theatre. Try it, you'll like it !

    There was 5 of us, we made reservations for 6:30 and had a show at Proctors at 8. We figured and hour and a half would be more then enough time. We ordered our drinks then when the drinks came out we ordered our food. 45 minutes later we were wondering where our food was. (we only ordered sandwhiches) We asked the waitress and she said she would find out. When she came back she said it would be out momentarily, at this time it is 7:30. She then came out 10 minutes later and said our food wouldnt be out in time for us to make it to the show. She said she forgot to put our order in. Also keep in mind when we ordered our food it was NOT that busy. Will NEVER go back to this place.

    The food is great and the prices are awesome. The only tip I have is that if you're eating hot food I'd ask for a table upstairs in the cold weather because the doors constantly opening downstairs causes a cool draft.

    We were really pleased with the proximity and food selection for an opportunity to have dinner before a night at Proctors. We could park, walk to dinner and just around the corner was our concert, everything within a single block. The food selection was great with various types of entrees and appetizers. Portions were generous and really excellent flavor and pricing. Casual dress made this the perfect spot before the concert. Absolutely it will be the place to go when attending another event at Proctors.

    I was going to a show at Proctor's, so I looked online for someplace nearby and found the Backstage Pub & Grill. It was very convenient. We parked right next to the restaurant for $5, had dinner, and had an easy walk to the theater. We both got fish & chips which were very good. The waitress did a great job although she was running up & down the stairs and was the only waitress for the upstairs section. We chose to sit upstairs, rather than in the bar area, because it was beautifully sunny, however there was zero ambience. I kind of felt like I was eating in a cafeteria. For dinner before the theater, I would have preferred a nicer atmosphere. For a quick dinner or maybe a drink at the bar after the show, it would be fine.
