We love this venue for live music or any type of event. There really is not a bad seat in the house. The staff is really warm and friendly too!

Not a bad seat in the house. Had a pleasant time at the SoCon Tournament. Bathrooms were clean with all the fans. A little tight as far as the streets and all. But over enjoyed the the Tournament.
