Humphreys Concerts by the Bay is a great intimate venue, with a nice location, but the seats are horrible, cheap plastic folding chairs that offer zero comfort. The acts that play at there are good, but unfortunately the seats are so uncomfortable aren't worth going to see them. Even though it's a small venue, the seating is level so if... More

II recently saw Joe Bonamassa at Humphreys in San Diego after purchasing the tickets 6 months ago. The seats were very expensive and we were unfortunately located in the second to the last row. Disappointed. The show was overall great with the exception that it is unfortunate that the seating is not graduated downward. It was hard to see the... More

How can you beat this venue. Sitting outside under the stars on the water listening to great music. I have been going to concerts here for years and it never gets old. They bring in the BEST bands, entertainment, singers and comics for all ages. You are never crowded in, drinks and food are easy to get and everyone has... More

Attended a night concert at Humphreys by the Bay. Seated outside with beautiful San Diego weather, view of the boat marina to our left. Afterwards went to the hotel bar to listed to more music. Older crowd, wonderful view. Food and drink served during the performance.

This was my first visit to Humphreys and I will definitely try to see more shows there when in San Diego! It's right on the bay (just as its name suggests) and I loved the atmosphere of the place!

This place has a beautiful location, and they rake it in. But no matter how much you paid for your ticket, it's portapotties, really. This ruins it.

I absolutely love to attend concerts in this venue, however, the narrow plastic chairs are getting old. I know you are trying to make money but couldn't you take out 200 chairs, add larger more comfortable seats and charge us more per ticket? Think about it PLEASE

The location/venue of Humphrey's is sensational. Too bad the experience is ruined by the way in which they arrange their seating. The plastic folding chairs that are secured together with plastic cable ties makes the seats so close to each other that you and the person next to you ends up touching body parts. That combined with the fact that... More

Have been to several concerts here. Outdoor, on the water, intimate, great sound and seats. What's not to love? Well the food and drinks are overpriced, but small "price" to pay for a terrific concert venue!

Attended Brian Wilson concert here, the venue is very nice, intimate easy to see concert. Food wasn't that great, pizza was horrible, so recommend you eat before you come. The ushers were very nice answering questions and making seating very easy. It was very nice seeing the sun go down and see the mood, very enjoyable.
