We have been to many shows around the Tampa Bay area and the Mahaffey is one of our favorite venues. We live in Apollo Beach, Florida and we love everything about this place. (next door to the Dali) Parking is well done, entrance is well done, venue is classic and clean. View is amazing on the water. Star studded events and the seats are great. Would have to say not a bad seat in the place. Although I have not been up to the balcony before. The Mahaffey offers the best prices for great entainment. We love the short drive there, we are able to go directly in and exit quickly to interstate. Its not a gigantic venue where you could be overwhelmed, its very intimate, you can see the stage from all angles and the seats are very comfortable. The seats and rows are very well spaced and not on top of eachother, they are comfortable making the experience even better. Go early, treat yourself- There are several Restaurants within walking distance.
