This is a fun, funky spot to see a show, have drinks and eat. They had a great sound system and the food was surprisingly good, though not particularly cheep. But it is really all about the music. We all had a great time and I would not hesitate to go back if there was someone playing that I wanted... More

This was my first time going to the Coach House, though I've heard about from many people over the years. It's very similar to how the old Crazy Horse Saloon used to be, with signed photos of all of the entertainers that have performed there over the years. I wasn't sure what to expect, but had read that diners would... More

We attended a comedy show that featured Louie Anderson and Taylor Williamson. We made a reservation for dinner to ensure we had good seats. There really isn't a bad seat in the place, but you are taking your chances and the separation between seats is a bit tight. The staff was great and the food pub like, but fine. Louie... More

We have seen several bands there now and really enjoy the total experieince. Service is awesome, even when it is packed. Food is always good, not fantastic but good. A step up from a dive bar but not quite full service restaurant quality. But if you want to see a band or a comedy show, there is no better place!!

This is a pretty cool place to catch a band and get a beer. Food is not so great, but good mozzarella sticks and desserts. Once or twice a year they may have a good headliner, but you have to sit through a blah opener.

So the food is passable. The air conditioning in the summer is terrible!!! But they have some good bands/musicians. If you REALLY want to see someone here then fine, but dont expect to be comfortable or eat good food.

I've been several times before, but decided to give them another chance since Poncho Sanchez was in town. My wife and I had bought tickets and had made dinner reservations. We were seated right up front against the stage, so the location was really, really good. The performance was awesome. We were promptly greeted by our server and she explained... More

Purchased tickets over the phone a week in advance and picked up at will call. Customer service was terrific, offering lots of information to us and thanked us for booking our first visit. Concert hall opens at 6pm with concert starting at 8:00pm. We were encouraged to get there early if we wanted bar top seating, but we opted to... More

The Coach House is a restaurant-bar located in an unlikely industrial part of San Juan Capistrano. It has existed since 1980 and has been the venue for many known performers. It is also an incubator for performers starting out. The night I went, they had a wonderful warm-up singer singing rock and blues. The headliner band was Delta Deep. Never... More

I have been coming here for concerts, for years. The venue is excellent. The sound is good. You can't beat it. I drive over an hour to get there but it is worth it. Every seat in the place is great. I saw Terri Nunn and Berlin this weekend. As always, she put on a great show. Last month I... More
