"From traveling Broadway shows such as this and Pippen, to Jerry Seinfeld and separately Jason Alexander, to tribute bands for Queen, Billy Joel and Elton John - this place keeps you entertained in grand style. Beautiful hall with ample seating. 2 thumbs up!"

"Always superb entertainment! Easy access with two parking lots & never a long jam to get out after the show. Seating excellent from anywhere in the house! Chairs comfy. Area clean. Host & hostesses are helpful & cheerful. We've attended many events, plays, musicals, school events, etc. Never disappointed."

"We have seen the Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra several times. They are excellent. This month we went to see "Sinatra-The Ultimate Tribute Concert" If you ever get to see Brian Duprey portray Frank Sinatra you will not be disappointed."
