We went to see The Bouncing Souls play on the outdoor stage. It was great. There is a lot of room and good food. We also went to the after show and the inside was just as great. There are so many historical and famous stuff in the walls. It was overall a great night!

What a great place to see a show. Whether it's inside or during the summer at the summer stage. This is a classic venue that is packed with history. Great bar tenders, with even some good burgers and fries. I have seen many musical acts here. Great place to bring your friends, family, and teenage children to see a show.

Great sound systems, great atmosphere. Drinks are reasonably priced. Limited food menu, but good enough for a quick bite. Saw Bush/Chevelle on Friday, and Langhorne Slim/The Lumineers on Saturday, both on the summer stage. Two of the best shows I've seen in a long time. If you show up around the time the gates open +/- 15 minutes, you can... More

Yes you are that close and for a reasonable price. Travel light, dress comfortable, no real place to sit, and come early. Music fill the entire area its awesome. Park careful, there is metered parking everywhere. Get the My Pay 2 Park app so that you can pay via phone. Don't wander out of the tourist area. Try a local... More

I saw a couple concerts on the Summer Stage. It was a good time and the process to get in was a well oiled machine. Only complaint is i wish they had some covered space for when the sun really beats down on you.

Iconic. The Stone Pony and Asbury Park are synonymous. Across the street from the boardwalk with and outdoor stage that is nothing short of amazing. The music fills the entire boardwalk. Iconic. Period.

I think there are plenty of reviews of this venue and the Summer Stage, but I thought I would add that there is a counter where you can get vegan food. I did not know this, so I had already eaten before I got there. In the future, I might go earlier and eat there. They also made a mean... More

This was our second time visiting The Stone Pony for a show and it was awesome. Punk Rock Bowling and Music Fest 2016 = BEST TIME EVER. Thank you so much to The Stone Pony for hosting it. Sound was great inside and out. Only downfall was they ran out of PBR, but with thousands of people it was bound... More
