We took the cave tour before the Allan Stone show. Nice short tour, we couldn't see all the areas our guide said because they wanted to get the next group in before the show. This being our first time to the venue we planned on having dinner there. The concession stand only has hot dogs, chili, BBQ and bags of... More

Absolutely fabulous venue! We throughly enjoyed seeing John Anderson in concert here! We purchased the bucket list package as it was a birthday weekend. We were very well taken care of.

The bucket list package is the way to go and was so very impressive. My seat was center front row, couldn't have been better. Remember it is chilly in the cave.

You are truly going 300+ feet underground to see the show. I think the path way could be made better. Partially the last 100 feet to the chairs. Finally someone will fall and get hurt and the owners will get sued and then they will make corrections. Second issue, maybe it's not the fault of the people running the show,... More

Stay away! No police or ambulance and its a pit with no security at all. We went there in July an as a thunder storm rolled in they left us outside waiting. We we finally got inside all seats taken by PBS and WCTVE, Ticket buyers sat by bathroom.

We enjoyed the cave tour first. The concert and background was great. The food was good and was decently priced. The setting was so unique compared to your normal concert settings. The bluegrass music was very entertaining. We will go back again!

We had a great time at the Caverns and the concert. There was a fair amount of walking both up and down. It was not as bad as I expected. I have a sore hip but I managed just fine. Bring a sweater or jacket because the temperature in the cave is around 55F. I wish the stage was a... More

This is certainly worth the journey to this part of Tennessee. The music paired with the setting are alone reason enough to try it. We chose the Bucket List, and are generally glad we did. The package covers all the bases at the Caverns: nice tour, decent food, great seats (we sat on front row), artist meet & greet, and... More

Would have like to have heard more about the cave's history and chandler. The Bucket List put us on the 2nd row plus we didn't have to wait in line for... More
