I sent an email to the Stage.
Long story short I made reservations over a month ago for this event. When we arrived they told me that my party was already seated and they were not. So my reservation was given away. We were sat at a table that was in the front couldn’t hear the band, it was freezing and no lighting. Then I was told that the reservations were first come first serve. That is unfair to people who make reservations well ahead Ian advance, then we arrive my reservation was given away. Also when making the reservation I put I would like to be near the stage not put in the back where it’s freezing can’t heat the band and no lighting to even read the menu. This is not the first time this has happened. People who came later than us were getting moved up. We were finally moved up asking a few times to be moved to at least a warmer table.
You should not have a comment box when booking as you do not accommodate any requests.
I will not be returning I will see the bands when they are else where. The waitress was amazing and very apologetic for the disservice.

I rated the volume as moderate since there were two bands playing. One after the other of course. We had a very fun night and Michele was a great bartender/server! Thank you so much!!

Went there for the 80's Hairband through Open Table and they overbooked everyone. Ended up getting a seat way in the back with no view of the stage. It would be nice if the owners would add video of the performance and show it on the TV's for the people who had to pay the same price and wasn't able to see the stage. Also, they made each individual person at our table order food that wasn't ready till after the show. Had to take it home with me. Food was OK at best, has potential to be better if they put a little more thought into customer service. Took over a half an hour to get our first drinks and that was only because the manager noticed us sitting there for an extended period of time.

A great place to see bands! Huge stage! Multiple televisions so you can watch sports at the same time. And a nice fireplace in front away from the stage. In case you like it a little quieter. Wonderful seeing West of the Mark again! Sorry I already deleted the photos I took. Next time.

We had reservations to see a band, Needs Gone Wild, at The Stage. When we arrived we had to pay a $10/person cover at the door. We didn’t expect that and normally it would have been fine, but we were told to choose a table in a part of the venue where we couldn’t see the band. And we could barely hear them. The hostess didn’t seem to care, only saying that a lot of people were unhappy with the situation. We had an 8:00 pm reservation and, with COVID, we didn’t know if we could find a restaurant to take us so late for dinner, so we stayed. It was very disappointing and they were unaccommodating.

Was disappointed to see they didn’t have my reservation saved when I got there luckily tables were open. Not sure if this was their fault or the open table app.

There was a band playing so that is why the noise level was at the rate I said but it's a wonderful place. Very big! Excellent set up especially during the virus crisis. Will be better once the virus is over. Enough room to sit in front and watch tv or go in the back to see the band. It will be great when the dance floor can be used for dancing!

We were confirmed and the place called and we were never notified that there was a $7 seating charge per person !!
Very disappointing that it was almost 30$ to sit down and pay almost 200$ for food and drinks with friends and be charged that.
Will not be returning !

After dinner with friends we wanted to try the stage. We love country music and we’re excited that there was live music. After being seated no one came back to our table - for more than 25 minutes - to offer food or drinks. We might have enjoyed the place but ended up heading somewhere else. So many good choices for food and drinks in Clarence - I would skip the Stage and head somewhere nice.
