There are a lot of positive reviews here, so we apparently attended on an "off" night performer-wise.

Keith H, Owner at Moonlight on the Mountain, responded to this review

That can happen--- and there are times when we admit to being less than pleased with a particular performer's efforts--- but happily, not many. Best we can do is "set the table"--- our quality control kinda ends when the show starts, at that point it's up to the artist to deliver the goods that the admission ticket pays for. Thanks... More

This was our first time to visit MOTM. A small and intimate venue tucked in a quiet and lovely older spot. I appreciated this idea of a "listening room" and the hospitality offered by owner and musicians alike. Rough around the edges only makes the room work towards a very pleasant evening. Loved David Jones and the fact he uses... More

I had never been to this venue before, but it was definitely a surprise! The staff was extremely hospitable, and the music was superb! We made sure to bring our own drinks, and seating was plenty. We were told we came on a slow night, so it might be more crowded on other days. All in all I definitely plan... More

Keith H, Owner at Moonlight on the Mountain, responded to this review

Thanks so much for your lovely comments-- we don't often have a big crowd for our programs, so we appreciate every person who DOES take the time to come out and enjoy original acoustic music, live and up close--- especially those who are willing to spread the word. We'll look for you again soon! More

If you enjoy intimate music venues...this is the place to go. We found this place on TripAdvisor and we were so glad we did. The cost is $15 pp for an evening of great music. Bring your own snack and drinks which makes this a very inexpensive evening.

Great venue for music lovers. Lots of variety in a music room for serious music enthusiasts. Bring your food and your choice of beverage and sit down and let the acts that Keith Harrelson presents wow you. Always top notch talent.

Keith H, Owner at Moonlight on the Mountain, responded to this review

Many thanks for your kind words--- Moonlight's been a one-man operation for several years, now we are pleased to share your compliments with a small corps of volunteers who can even run the place in my absence, as they have done just recently. We are all proud of the positive responses we generate from artists and audience alike! More

Friendly people make this hidden gem worth visiting. Saw Justin Johnson last Saturday night. An intimate venue where you get to meet the artist and hear great music. Bring your own food and beverage and the staff will set up a table for you if you're not to late.

I found this place on Trip Advisor, and after reading all of the good reviews, decided to check their schedule. When I saw that a bluegrass band would be there while we visiting from out of state, I just knew we had to go. This is a great place to hear some great music. We met the owner and the... More

I saw my 6th or 7th show here last night, and just like every time I've been to Moonlight, it was amazing. The talent on stage is matched by the respect in the room. I don't know how Keith gets the level of performers who come here, but I'm glad he does. Never a bad show or bad seat in... More

We love going to Moonlight on the Mountain. It's a small venue where you get to sit close and really hear the musicians. Nothing but music. Bring your own food and beverages or drink their coffee. Singer/Songwriters from all over get booked in for a couple of hours of personal music making. Great fun. Check out the web site. Admission... More

MOTM is a wonderful venue, presenting music in a comfortable environment for both the listener and the performer. The setting is intimate and the focus is on the music. Owner Keith Harrelson has created a true listening room without distraction. There's no bar or restaurant, although you're welcome to bring your own food and beverage, adult or otherwise. I've been... More
