The venue was great and I really enjoyed the show. I am from out of town and I did not realize that the bus did not run after the show back to the LIRR. That is my fault and I should have asked. A quick cab ride solved the problem. Fun Times

This is one of the best venues for outdoor summer concerts under the stars. The Venue is waterfront and the perfect place to enjoy a live show.

One of the worst venues I've ever attended. The tickets said show starts at 5:15 but actually show did not start until 7 and once you are in the venue, you cannot go out! This means that all food lines are ridiculously long. The food was not even worth the wait- no selection and nothing interesting. Not worth it.

The best place to see a concert on Long Island in the summer. Seeing the ocean and feeling the breezes cannot be topped!

Went to see the comedy fest last week. Time on ticket said 5:15. We weren't let in until 5:15 and then told that the actual show did not start until 7:00pm but there were non show comedians in the courtyard until the show started. Basically what that meant was that you could stand around, in the heat, in the concession... More

Went to see a Buffett concert. Great venue for a beach concert, had the typical and entertaining tailgate parties in the parking lot the excessive litter seemed to be the only problem out there. Upon entering the concert the security staff was a little aggressive with their pat downs, it is understandable that they have to conduct them but a... More

This area needs to be remodeled.. Clean up too. Very dangerous stairs ..lighting. Rusted seats rows 4 .. And up. Section 2. 9 bucks for a small small 🍔 Take that money and make seats better. All hard rock surface.. Kids can slip. Old people too. Nice shows venue.. But place is filthy

Went to see buffet it was awesome. Beautiful night to sit outside really enjoyed the show. The tailgate in the parking lot was maybe the best part. So much fun

This was my first time at this theater and all-in-all it was a very good experience, not excellent, but very good - reasons it didn't hit the excellent mark for me was the fact that in the VIP section your seat simply had a cup holder - that was the only real difference for the higher price, and this section...
