Backstage has really improved the last year or two (as of spring 2014). They continue to surprise me with their specials. Their regular menu is a bit standard/boring for this type of restaurant and there are quite a few things that they need to improve. But for before/after show dinners at the Warner or local art gallery shows, this is your best bet for Torrington. Their beer selection is 2nd to none in Litchfield county. As far as their rotating beer selections, they will even give some of the nice pubs in New Haven a run for their money. The one HUGE complaint I have about Backstage is its HORRIBLE acoustics. They really need to add some ceiling sound absorption panels. If they have one of their standard mediocre musicians playing the space becomes intolerable and impossible to talk to anyone. This spills over into the dining area and makes for very unpleasant dining.
