Backstage

Backstage, located next to the Warner Theatre in downtown Torrington, serves casual American food from its full "all-day" menu, prepared fresh from scratch. Service begins daily at 11:30am, and the kitchen stays open late on performance evenings for after-theatre dining.



Select from crisp salads and hot soups, creative Small Plates, Perfect Burgers of hand formed Angus patties on house-baked rolls, popular sandwiches, and Big Plate comfort favorites. House-made desserts are a specialty.



The antique mahogany bar soars 14 feet above the trendy zinc counter, and presides over northwest Connecticut's largest offering of craft-brewed beers. 40 brands are available on tap, with the bottle selection at more than 80. The well-rounded wine list is popularly priced, with several wines offered by the glass.

"We have been here many times. It is local to us and has become our go-to place on short notice.
Fantastic beer selection. This alone brings me back once a week. Their Brooklyn burger is a favorite.
The only downside is it is noisy. If you are seated in the section on the bar side, it can feel like you are in a noisy can. Be sure to ask for seating on the other side.
Service has always been very good and consistent."

"We go to Backstage every week on Thursday evening when they feature tap take overs from craft breweries. What makes Backstage a huge step above other brew pubs is their farm to table food, as well as the attention we receive from the management team and waitstaff. They have come to know the types of craft beer we enjoy and will always take the time to describe and suggest new breweries and beers.
New Year's Eve dinner was amazing - rack of lamb and salmon! (with an orchid blossom to boot!) Very, very special - our compliments to the chef!!!"

"First off let me say that the food was great. We had no problems with it. Also the drinks were good as well. Now in saying that, I would unfortunately not return due to the service we rec'd by the hostess. Our waitress was great, no issues with her. I will not go into the story here, as I have contacted the restaurant separately. Just a bit of advice, be wary of your reservation time. If your reservation is at 4:30, they will tell you if there is another party for the next time slot, 6:30, and will come to your table 2x or more to remind you of needing to be out prior to that time. Maybe we hit a bad day where the kitchen & the bar was really backed up, I get it, it happens. but that is not my tables fault."

"Went for lunch before a matinee at the Warner. Service was good and our food came out timely. Food was fresh and tasty. They have doors that lead to the theater, so you don't have to walk outside to get to the theater. A plus if the weather is bad."

"We had a group of 14 gather before attending a Sunday afternoon show at the Warner. The service was excellent and food was great. Everyone enjoyed their meals - and we had a variety of dishes. The menu is varied so there is something for every taste. Prices are very reasonable and serving sizes are perfect.
We will go back and are looking forward to trying other items on the menu.
Highly recommend."

"Three of us had never been to Backstage. Four of us ordered burgers and each one was prepared just as we wanted. A swell time was had by all and we will go again for lunch. Too much bar noise at night!"

"My sweetheart and I took a friend and his wife to Backstage for their 15th wedding anniversary. I made reservations, even though it was a Sunday afternoon 3:30 time slot. Their food menu has so many items on it, let alone the extensive wine, beers, drinks etc on the reverse side of the menu. The food was delicious, the drinks excellent, and the dessert s to die for. A wonderful dining experience was had."

"Backstage offered very good service, excellent food,
and a friendly, helpful waiter. Brought a friend who
had never been there before. She was very impressed
and would not only go again, but would also highly
recommend it. Reservations are a must before a
show at the Warner Theater!

"We went an hour and a half before a show next door, crunch time for the restaurant, of course. So some of what happened should be seen in that light. Still, our waitress forgot to put in our appetizer order, and we waited an hour for the entrees. That didn't leave us much time. She was very apologetic and the restaurant offered free desserts, but by then there was no time anyway. The food is good (I had meatloaf and my wife had a shepherd's pie), and they have excellent beers on tap (including Sip o' Sunshine that night). So yes, we'd recommend, but be forewarned. Definitely have a reservation if it's a show night."
