“Eclectic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

It's a neat little place. If you want a suite with a bartender and buffet you are in the wrong place. This is a hole in the wall and I love it. It sure is nice to have a place like this to get away from the big city and listen to great music.

“Hole in the wall place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Nutty Jerry's does get good performers, more so than bigger Beaumont that is only 25 min. away! The venue is an old rodeo place, seating of bleachers on each side. You can't bring in a portable seat with back, it's not allowed, but they will sell you one or you are left sitting on a hard, backless bleacher for hours. Fold out chairs for the VIP section is probably the best in the front. I sat right behind the VIP area and shared a big table with strangers. A new set up to improve would be seating with chairs turned toward the stage, but that's not going to happen... Getting a drink is a joke. YOu will have to stand in line for 30 min. or more to get a mixed drink... might as well buy a few while you are there so you don't have to be miserable in line waiting and waiting.

“Been there once, enough for me”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Nutty Jerry's venue needs more comforts for paying patrons. Seating chart on web site is misleading to start with, then seating is "standing" in general admission, or sitting on wood bleachers or cheap uncomfortable folding chairs. Restaurant is now closed so one has to eat 5 miles away before driving out into the sticks to find this place. Women shouldn't wear high heels since the loose rock parking lot will break an ankle. Tickets do not tell you when the show will start, only "doors open at 7 PM", our performer didn't come out on stage until 9:30, so our group stood around for 2 1/2 hours of nothing to do. This crap hole doesn't come near comparision to primary venues in the Houston area. So as I say, been there, done that, another life lesson, enough of Nutty Jerry's for me.

“Good time in the Willie Way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

4 of us went to see Willie with a good table, no hassle parking and easy in and out. Food at concession is typical and expensive. Bar is very slow but in high demand and tipping made for good drink. Show was great and about the right price.

“Loved it! Loretta Lynn at Nutty Jerry's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

10 of us went to Nutty Jerrys to see Loretta Lynn and Family. We ranged in age from 14 to 70. Had a wonderful time. Read the info on Nutty Jerrys website before you go so you know what to expect. I will give it to you in a nutshell. The doors open at 7. The show does NOT start at 7. Get there at 8 if you don't want to stand outside in a long line to get in. You won't miss any of the show. There are NO outside restrooms so be careful if you do plan to wait in line to get in. Don't go there hungry. Food choices are limited and food lines are long. The restaurant wasn't open when we went, so I can't comment on it-but the website indicates get there 2 hours early if you want to eat there. Simply eat before you go! The lines to get beer/wine/cocktails are long. They definitely need to improve on this. My suggestion would be to have beer/water/cokes on ice in water troughs throughout the facility to cut down on the traffic to the bar areas. Problem solved. We bought tickets in the first row of the "taller"tables. A bit far from the stage but we could see good. My other suggestion would be to install numerous tvs throughout the place so everyone could get a close up view of the performer.Loretta Lynn was AWESOME-sounded great! Her twin daughters sang a few songs but Loretta sang at least 20 and bonus was that Mickey Gilley made a surprise appearance and sang some too. Opening act was Holly Williams (Hank Jr.'s daughter)-very talented singer/songwriter. Educate yourself before you go and you won't be dissappointed. Nutty Jerry's-if you are going to make people wait in lines outside-you need outdoor restrooms set up, Also improve on the food/beverage wait times (more stations), and I will rate you a 5 instead of a 4. If restaurant is going to be closed, go buy 500 pizzas and sell pizza by the slice for those that come hungry. WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK.
