About

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.

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!
Thanks,

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 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
