“OLDIE BUT GOODIE”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We visited the Coach House for dinner and a John Hiatt concert.

The place is huge and has been a fixture in San Juan Capistrano for many year. I have to admit that when we entered and found the temperature in the 80's we were concerned. However, the staff made their best effort to cool the facility.

Dinner was from a limited menu. I guess when you are feeding a few hundred people you need to keep it reasonable. I ordered steak and wife ordered the fish. Both were good.

The concert was excellent. Good sound and good lighting.

Now that we've found the Coach House we'll be back.

“Great intimate little venue, always a favorite!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

I have been coming to this venue for close to 20 years and it is such a great intimate little place. I have seen a million bands here and some stand up comedy as well. Love bringing people here that have never been because it has a great vibe due to it's small size but you can still see great bands with a lot of people inside. The food has improved greatly, the service not so much BUT the servers were way nicer then they used to be and the staff was great. I'll be back again soon I'm sure! XOXO

“Great old school venue”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Went with a group if friends to see the BODEANS! Wow did they rock it! Can't believe I had never heard of them and now a big fan! The Coach House is in an unlikely spot and very unpretentious. It's just all about the music. Will go back often because the ticket prices are so reasonable and the intimate setting is perfect for getting to see artists sharing their talents! Food is mediocre at best and overpriced but who cares. Still one of the best deals in town if you are looking for MUSIC! Kelly Fitzgerald was first opener with a soulful folk vibe. Luke MacDonald was next up. He was a tremendous talent who was in a league of his own compared to the 2 playing with him. BODEANS amazed!

“Great staff in booking area!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Very briefly - just a kudos to Kathleen in the office and the owners for their consideration when we had a family complication while on holiday and couldn't attend a show we had purchased tickets for. Very congenial, accommodating and thoughtful staff and owners! Cheers from Canada!
