SHUEYW, Tripadvisor Review

"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!"

Jon D, Tripadvisor Review

"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."

Emerald P, Tripadvisor Review

"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."
