Really love this venue! Comfortable, the food truck food is excellent. Staff are very helpful. Love the idea of the lawn area and the high resolution monitors. Sound system seem to like it could use a little Improvement as some of the music was distorted....More

We just saw Rod Stewart there and sat under the covered area and it was great!! So much better than the lawn experience I've had before. The acoustics were awesome!! Loved being there. We are lucky to have this in our backyard!

The "Shell" itself is kind of neat, but if you aren't in the front section, you can see nothing! Even worse, people stand, and I didn't pay $120 for a ticket to see Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper on a screen so some selfish pig...More
