Doing this review between opening act and main act. Apparently this place has improved since other negative reviews. Plenty of seating (maybe off-season). First band was 12 to 16 year olds. Impressive. Got hear at 8pm wish I saw whole show. Despite showing at 8...More

The last time I went to a concert here they still had fixed seats. It felt like a theater. Now it is 4 levels of seats that can be moved and a bar in the back. It feels more like a club and encourages a...More

Great spot for "up close and personal" live concerts. Sound & lighting are superb, full bar, some reserved seating. I've been here numerous times and absolutely love it! Most concerts are well priced, approx. $20 sometimes less! Great value and entertainment!!

The sound quality is fantastic. Great seat wherever you choose to post up. Full bar and a small menu of food choices. I'd recommend going while in town and always kid friendly but I'd base that on the show.

Fiancee very picky as a lighting/a.v. professional, that said he enjoyed it! LED lighting and good sound! We got mezzanine seating - guaranteed and can dance without bothering anyone. Bit more but worth it! Opening bands tend to be bad according to all we talked...More

WILL NOT return! The Cave over sells the venue. We did not have a seat and we were required to stand although my husband is disabled. The main attraction, Wynonna, did not come on stage until after 9:15pm, despite the fact the venue opened for...More

With a large stage, the layout is arranged so that every seat is a good one. Great lighting and sound system. Menu is limited to venue food, so maybe dine elsewhere before the show.
