No A/c too hot
Enjoy myself every time I go. Love the vibe Happy that people have a place to come and freely express themselves.
We love going to the City Stage for trivia nights(every other Tuesday) but, should check with them for specific dates.
Everyone is friendly and good pub food with a nice variety.
We also like going there for the folk concerts from down east folk arts society about 6 times a year.
Great music from up and comers as well as a great vibe.
I just wish I could pick a better table when I make a reservation! I always end up with a table in the back & people crowd around you (that’s not good when you have slight anxiety issues)!!!
First time since redo. Very nice. Welcome was warm and inviting. Server was very good. Alisa Mike was outstanding. Food is still only average but cocktails were above average. Great place to go with friends.
I love coming here for drag nights. My friends and I attend almost all of them. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fun, be yourself type of atmosphere.
I thoroughly enjoyed Madame Z’s girls. But my guest and I ordered mixed drinks and they tasted awful.
great food, great drinks, great entertainment! This is our go to place for friends night out!
We all had a fun night. Service was very good. Bar food was ample.
We enjoy City Stage with the improvements made to the interior and food over the last several months. There is a good variety of entertainment.
Appreciated the people who were on stage for Irish night, which has lost it’s “fizzle” since the group used to gather at a coffee house on middle street. Too bad more musicians, etc. didn’t drop in, but the ones who were there were appreciated. Sorry the audience turn out was so low.
Really enjoyed the Irish music. Wish the menu was a little more diverse. Service was friendly although a little slow -- just one waitress on hand -- but it was a small crowd.
We enjoyed IslandTime very much and hope you will have them back this summer. Food was very good so were the drinks.
Had a good time. Entertainment was good and informative. He (Simon Spaulding) played different instruments and told about the instruments and some history about the songs he did. Very enjoyable.
Very disappointed in our table! The placement was terrible & the table itself needed to be put in the trash!!! Other than that, everything else was good...
We had a great time. I had never heard of this place. Not sure if it is new or not. We went to Trivia night. There was only about a dozen people. I think with more advertising, more people would know about it.
I had a ball. The comedy show was awesome. It was nice to have adult only entertainment in New Bern with alcohol.
Great show but the food was very mediocre! The waitress was sweet and also very efficient.
The website was confusing so I didn’t know if I was making a reservation for dinner or the comedy show. The cover charge was not listed anywhere online or the “membership” fee. So once I got past how weird/shady that was, I enjoyed the experience. The service was great, the salted caramel brownie was to die for, and I would go back.
City Stage is my favorite place in New Bern. The staff are always friendly & welcoming and the food & service is great.
Great place to hang out. For all kinds of people straight old young fat. Bi transgender and gay but great food awsome entertainment
We had reservations for a show. We were seated upon arrival. Before the show started, we noticed empty tables and asked to be moved up. They took some wait-listed customers first, then we were moved up to the front. The pasta salad and panini were a bit bland, but the fries were amazing.
The show was fabulous. Madam Z and her friends were very talented and entertaining. The cover charge was modest. The place got super crowded, so service started out great, but got a bit slow. I think this was because there were so many people seeing the show. Overall this was a great night out.
Love trivia, and sorry that one of the weeks it is held (4th Tuesday) makes it difficult for me to attend that night. Better questions than other trivia venue. Always have a good time.
Alisia made our evening! She has a divine voice and her repertoire was selected in accordance with the age group of patrons. Wise selection. I had missed such wonderful live music since a long time. We will definitely come again and bring friends along. You should be advertising in near by cities such as Morehead city and Beaufort.
Loved the Drag Shows!!!
Fun place to go watch some great entertainment! Was empty when we first got there but quickly filled up, with singer onstage at 7. Great mix of older and younger folks, all gathering for Valentines night out. Fairly light but good fare (sandwiches, pizza, etc). As expected, gets a bit noisy once it’s hopping, but we thoroughly enjoyed the positive vibes and amazing singer. Looking forward to going again!
City Stage hosted the Down East Folk Arts Show featuring Sam Greaves. Sam is a guitarist/banjoist is the folk tradition operating out of Kentucky. His songs were woven around stories of old times affecting modern days. The food at City stage is reasonably priced and the menu is typical bar food. The beer choices are limited somewhat compared to other places but on a scale if 10 I would give the bar a 7.
Nice place, food was good, Doug Caney comedy show was GREAT!
I would definitely like to see Doug Canney return to the City Stage for another show.
A very enjoyable evening. Food was good, price was right, jazz was excellent.
The music was great, but it is different on each night. Thrusday night is a great singer. Local --- great blues and almost anything.
Nice performance venue close to downtown New Bern. Good mix of bar and comfort food at reasonable prices. Best to arrive an hour before show to allow enough time for dinner and drinks.
Good food.....good entertainment......good service.......good value......
Our family came into hear the jazz band playing on Wednesday night and were very impressed with the music and the restaurant. Will be back again.
Enjoyed the experience but very noisy. Do plan to go back in the future!
It was our first time and we went for the show DrHypno. We would definitely go there again for music entertainment, comedy or other shows offered
good food reasonable prices ...fun atmosphere and nice wait staff..nice greeting at door ...overall a fun experience ...
I love going to City Stage, especially to see Alisa Weeks. Love her music. Never get tired of hearing her.
Loud....even though reservations a few customers started standing in front of us
Absolutely love the City Stage! Great staff, amazing shows, just a great time all around!!
We enjoyed it. BUT Open Table reservation did not get to the venue! We did not get the reserved seating. Fortunately they had space available. We would have been disappointed if we couldn't get a seat.
