“Classic roadhouse/rock&roll place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

If an act you like plays here go but be perpared to stand, very small amout of seats they you can't see much from unless you get there befrore the doors open. Parking is a trip into itself.

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Quick review. If you want to see a show in crowded, dangerous conditions and be treated really badly by staff, then go here. This place has been known to refuse entry to people with tickets for whatever reasons they want. No seats either. Avoid this place at all costs.

“Crowded, no seats, but I can't believe some of the performers who play here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Maybe I'm too old for this kind of place. This concert venue is basically a big open room with three bars, and no chairs. There are a few seats at the back bar, but once those SIX chairs are gone, that's it. They do offer "VIP Tickets" which means you can have a chair in a reserved area. No table service or anything, just a chair. That all being said, I can't believe the level of performers who play at this venue. Top names in rock and blues, some old-timers on their way down, and lots of new talent on their way up can be found here, a really eclectic mix. At my age, though, it really has to be somebody special to get me to stand for 3 hours!

“Great Place For A Concert!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Where ever you are in this place you got a great view of the stage! They have a lot of parking, I never paid for the vip parking.

“Close to home, close to heart”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

I've been coming to this venue since I was 13. Seriously, there was a point in time when I knew all the bouncers. As long as you aren't stupid, you will not have a problem here. Food and drink are overpriced so I never eat here. Drink in your car beforehand. Don't be stupid and bring weapons and ruin other people's experience! Bathrooms are decent, but go at the start of the show so its not that dirty.
