Willie Nelson was fantastic - that man doesn't age - it was great to see him and it was beautiful to watch the sun set behind the stage. The employees working the gate and the bar were super accommodating and very pleasant. The negative (and it was a big one) was the customers. We started out with a fantastic view... More

Hi l am from London England and a total Bruce Springsteen nut. So when the family decided on a vacation in NY City in April 2016, l decided to head to Asbury Park and visit the Stone Pony. Amazing! There was no concert that day but the staff were amazing. They let me wander round at my leisure, even taking... More

Saw two concerts this Summer...Janes Addiction and The GoGo's. Rain or shine, will delay for rain but won't cancel so bring a raincoat or poncho. Drinks are reasonably priced. People were smoking so that might be an issue. The sound system was poor quality, and too low, especially when the artists were speaking to the audience. I'm the JA concert... More

Went to a Summer Stage event this past Friday night. The location is convenient to the boardwalk and the stage was setup so the sun set behind it during the concert. Very scenic experience.

We went to see The Bouncing Souls play on the outdoor stage. It was great. There is a lot of room and good food. We also went to the after show and the inside was just as great. There are so many historical and famous stuff in the walls. It was overall a great night!

What a great place to see a show. Whether it's inside or during the summer at the summer stage. This is a classic venue that is packed with history. Great bar tenders, with even some good burgers and fries. I have seen many musical acts here. Great place to bring your friends, family, and teenage children to see a show.

Great sound systems, great atmosphere. Drinks are reasonably priced. Limited food menu, but good enough for a quick bite. Saw Bush/Chevelle on Friday, and Langhorne Slim/The Lumineers on Saturday, both on the summer stage. Two of the best shows I've seen in a long time. If you show up around the time the gates open +/- 15 minutes, you can... More

Park careful, there is metered parking everywhere. Get the My Pay 2 Park app so that you can pay via phone. Don't wander out of the tourist area. Try a local... More

I saw a couple concerts on the Summer Stage. It was a good time and the process to get in was a well oiled machine. Only complaint is i wish they had some covered space for when the sun really beats down on you.
