If you love the ambiance of the those beautiful old theaters, this one fits the bill. It's gorgeous! Thoroughly enjoyed the concert attended. The only negative would be the same as in all those old theaters, and that there are not enough restrooms for women!

You will not be disappointed here. Shows are intimate, so intimate that you can hear the toe tapping from the artist. Absolutely love this venue. Tickets are reasonable and there are a variety of prices considerate with seating options. Lots of free parking in area....More

Can't understand the high rating of this dump. Same old or similar boring concerts every year, uncomfortable seats for anyone over 5'5", but when they "remodeled" it was only the lounge. Drinks rule Oshkosh. Skip this tavern and go to the Thrasher in Green Lake.

If there's a show you want to see and it's playing at The Grand Opera House in Oshkosh...make sure to go! A wonderful and historic venue that is sure to please. They've also recently updated the balcony with some new seating and tables.

Have been there often. Have good selection of venues including national and local talent. Even though some seats are listed as obstructed view, have still found it to be a good seat.

We attended ArtRagous. Our first time in the Opera House and we were impressed. It has been restored nicely and the sound quality was everything we needed. A jewel for Oshkosh.

The Grand is an absolutely beautiful little theater, restored to it's glory (probably better than original) by the good people of the Oshkosh community. It's intimate and comfortable. The bar in the upper level is a good new addition. Catch a show here if you...More

This is a quaint little old-time theater that has live quality shows that make a trip here from wherever well worthwhile. Just pick a performance that fits your fancy, sit back, and enjoy.

We went to a concert there. The decor is very interesting, loved the old wallpaper! There is parking across the street. The bathrooms were good and larger than I expected. There is a lounge/bar upstairs where the balcony seating is. However, the actual seats in...More
