We made a reservation for 5 PM. When We got there, the doors were locked and the lights were off. I called and a machine picked up so I left a message canceling our reservation. If you're not going to open on time, don't offer reservations. We were time-crunched and had to scramble to find a place to eat. The entire experience could have been avoided. I will never try to go back and I've been telling everyone about this awful experience.
Not at ALL what is advertised. No staff (literally) for almost 5 minutes before 1 happened to walk put from the backroom. She gave us menus (which only offered a fraction of what their site claims they offer.) Another staff member came out to the bar to rattle off the plethora of items they were out of, not even trying to hide it from customers (which was ONLY myself & my daughter.)
We ended up leaving, incredibly disappointed. Spent all of $9.50 on a Long Island Ice Tea (nope...they didn't even comp the drink as an apology.)
I would NOT suggest Backstage to anyone.
Really great hamburgers and fries! The menu is limited but everything we've tried was delicious especially the vegetables with the plank steak and the Reuben sandwich. There is virtually no dessert menu. This is a perfect spot for a quick supper before walking a block to the theater. Make a reservation on national tour nights at Proctor's
This is a small bar that serves food...you will get fed efficiently, no frills, food is o.k, it's bar food...steaks, burgers, sandwiches... it is not a fine dining experience, and your open table reservation will probably be meaningless, as they don't seem to pay any attention to Open Table reservations at their end!
Great location for friends to meet before heading to the theatre. Food was great. The bartender/waitress was alone that night and handled everything (both floors) and everyone with a great attitude. And she really had to hustle!!
Great place to go for a quick bite before a show at Proctors. Reservations are a must on show night. Great beer selection and good pub food. Somewhat limited menu, but the convenience of being right next door to the theatre is worth it.
We went to the Backstage for a preshow dinner and it was very good! Fish and Chips were super and the Margarita was one of the best we have had ever!
They were out of all sugar free drinks, limited wine list and 2 of the entrees they were out of. Very limited menu however location is great if attending the theater.
We arrived there for lunch and found out they are not opened for lunch so had to find some place else to eat.
We were surprised they were out of diet soda and a couple of the entree choices at 6pm. While service was friendly and prompt the limitations were disappointing
Very limited menu... basic pub grub. Great beer selection. Great service. Food was as expected.
Was going to a show at Proctors. We were a bit late and that wasn't an issue. Food was good. Drinks were good. Short walk to Proctors. I would do this place again for sure. Try the fried pickles!
Quick easy dining option preshow. Very convenient as it is directly behind Proctors. Waitress was honest about wait time and encouraged us to get our orders in as they were booked to the max capacity. Service was efficient. Solid pub fare.. no complaints. Only down side was the upstairs dining room was a little chilly.
Made reservations on-line because we had tickets to Wicked, however, the reservations were not available to staff. They were extremely apologetic, stated that they were having difficulties with the on-line reservation system and seated us at a nice table in the bar area. Service was a tad slow, but completely understandable because they were swamped prior to the show. Very professional and courteous. My wife's fish and chips were slightly greasy, my "Rachel" (Reuben sandwich with coleslaw instead of sauerkraut) was awesome and the sweet potato fries were even better. Overall I would, and have, highly recommended the Backstage to friends. As an added bonus and as their name implies, just cross the street and walk down a short sidewalk to the back entrance to Proctors. (Parking next to the restaurant is only $10.00)
Had dinner before a show at Proctors. Bar was noisier than we wanted so we ate upstairs. Not much atmosphere up there but much quieter. A little chilly, though.
Food was good and portions were good sized. Prices were good.
I would go back again.
I can't answer the above questions well because despite using Open Table to make a reservation, when we arrived we were told they couldn't take any additional reservations for the evening. I showed them the confirmation I received and was told I made the reservation too late for them to accommodate us. I was very disapointed - they shouldn't use this service if they can't fulfill requests in real time. We scrambled to find somewhere quick and close by to eat at before the show started.
Great place to grab a bite to eat before a show or anytime. Have been there a few times and never disappoints.
This was my 2nd time eating here before a show at proctors. Outstanding food and service. Best corn beef reuben ever!
I never found out if it was good or not They wouldn't seat us saying they didn't get the reservation.
Food quality was great. They seemed to be short staffed for a show night at Proctors. A burger and fries and a turkey sandwich with fries took almost 45 minutes from order to table. Which seemed really slow as it wasn't that busy.
