Excellent little out of the way venue for a concert, small and intimate. Not a bad seat in the house. You sit at tables, food and drink options, and service, is quite nice. Would definitely return. Saw Beth Hart and she rocked the place!

What a great place. Top notch "National Acts" found in a local setting. The venue hold several hundred but because there is no reserved seating it just comes down to how badly you want a front row seat and if you are willing to wait in line. You wait in line to buy your ticket and are given a number and then when they begin to let the people in you go and select your seat by the number you were assigned when you purchased you ticket.
The food is good but a little pricy and the selection is adequate.

Having attended shows at this and the old location for more than 25 years I can attest to it being one of the finest listening rooms in the East. Decent food, good beer and always a great effort from the musicians made better by the quiet, respectful crowd.

I've been there several times, the food is good and you get to see musicians in a very small setting. Some of the acts are from back in time as well as name acts. Well worth it to go.
