“Parking is not a problem until you try to leave”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Otherwise, it's a beautiful venue. If the show isn't great, you can watch the sun set and the stars come out. But getting out of the parking lot is like Lord of the Flies. Bring a sweater and don't wear open-toe shoes if you are prone to getting cold sitting still.

“Neil Diamond”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Great acoustics, great view, great night. Lighting was great. Wish the tickets would have said show starts at 8, not the time the gates will open. Got there way too early.

“Overpriced nice outdoor venue.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Seems prices have gone up over the years. Good selection of shows, just expensive- Ticket brokers always buy all the good seats then re-sell them @ higher prices- sometimes ridiculous

Very easy to get to. Plenty of parking. Every seat is good at this venue, even the upper, upper ones. Beautiful views if up high of Jones Beach and Zachs Bay!

“Concert with a view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Always look forward to going here for a concert. Great location. parking is not a problem. The oudoor theater is really nice with the ocean as a back drop. Always look forward to tail gateing before a Buffett concert. Also enjoy seeing Stevie Nicks with her hair blowing in the wind. But if the weather is bad that could put a real "damper" on things.
