I have seen a number of performers here... the venue is great, small and more intimate than NYC and the value for the money is very good.

Great night of blues. Love live music there's nothing else like it. Quaint venue nestled in the heart of Bayshore. Perfect night out.

Great local place to see a live show. All seating is good and all of the folks who work here are great. Saw Gary Hoey and Buster Poindexter. Both were on fire !!!! Also great place to eat close by.

To me, this place is a hidden gem. They have tons of great shows every week. Very reasonably priced as well. I also love that they serve alcohol. Could be cleaner.

Some really good acts come here. Venue is small so it makes for a nice hometown feel. If you ever get to see the Gin Blossoms here don't pass up the chance.

To me it's like seeing some of my favorite artists in my living room. Big enough to attract some bigger name and small enough to be intimate. They know how to book talent. Even if you never heard of the act give it a try.

But it doesn't feel as if you are near home when ibsude. It's a small theater and its family-friendly. It's not so small that I am cramped, but not so large I lose sight of the kids very easily. Good popcorn and refreshments, at times,...More
