Recently saw another show here. This is a terrific spot to see your favorite band In the summer. It's on the water so there is usually a nice breeze -- this can also translate into a cold night as the Fall comes rolling in. The venue is approximately 4-5k of seats so most seats offer a good view. The food... More

I visited for the first time 8/23 to hear Counting Crows. All the seats are good since it's a small venue. There are tons of food and beverage options. While crowded and somewhat run-down, the bathrooms were clean. I'll look forward to going again.

I have been here many times, dating back to when it was called "Harbor Lights." The setting is perfect.

Went to see Willie Nelson. Great venue. Section 2 row P awesome. Sound good, legroom good, nice breeze off water , atmosphere great. Only suggestion would be is to give food vendors a tune up. They charge for decent food but it was terrible. I suggest you eat before you get there.

Just saw the OAR concert last week. This is a great venue with a very nice staff. Only beer and wine available and no ice to be found. Great sound.

My wife and I went here last night. Even though it was a warm night, the cool ocean breeze made it very comfortable. I found the event staff to be in full control. I would highly recommend this venue.

Have seen many concerts here, most recently Santana. For an outdoor tent venue, the sound quality is usually very good - suggest rows FF - D in sections 1, 2 or 3 for best sound. These seats are a little further back than 1/2 way from the stage. If your seats are under the tent - it can get "warm"... More

Just took my youngest daughter to see O.A.R. for her first concert; this is the second time I've seen a show at Blue Hills, it's a great venue. The location is perfect, lots to do around the area and Boston is a great walking city. The concessions are a bit pricey, but $5 water is pretty normal for any venue... More

Fun venue with some major acts! Lots of little places for getting beer & wine (and even earplugs!) before the show - even a nice deck to sit on to enjoy your drinks. (Bring an I.D. - they absolutely will NOT serve you if you don't have one, no matter HOW old you are!) Not much in the way of... More

Been here several times and we love everything except the prices for beer! Great seats, and we got Heineken tent vip passes at Legal Seafood next door. Just ask your server and they will issue you a 4 pack! Plenty of room to walk and enjoy the water or visit one of the food stands.
