“The Ronnie Milsap Concert was Wonderful!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We went to the Ronnie Milsap concert on Saturday and had a great time. The Grand 1984 Opera House is a great venue for concerts because it's small and you feel like you're close to the entertainer. Because of it's age, the leg room is tight which is a little uncomfortable for tall men. This is the second time we've been to the Grand, and we plan to return. The first time we saw "A Tuna Christmas" and enjoyed it as well. It's one of the best things to do in Galveston.

“The Grand is a special place.”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Nothing beats the atmosphere and acoustics in this Grand Old Lady. It is like walking back in time. My husband and I have been for several different types of shows and all are excellent.

“Great venue”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Beautiful restoration and surprisingly good sound on the highest balcony. You might not want to sit on the front row if you have any height issues.

“It really is grand!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We attended a concert for the first time at the Grand. The outside looks pretty much like another building, but the inside is a marvel.
Beautifully restored. We did not go on a tour, but were impressed by what we saw.
