Bello voice concert- the line was out the door upon arrival so they absolutely did their best with such a huge crowd and being down staffed for the night.

The check at the venue for our reservation was very chaotic. Apparently, there was an issue with Open Table reservations made the day of the event not showing up. We were eventually seated. The wait staff was wonderful! The band was great also. It was nice to enjoy live music again.

We had a great time. Our party was a variety of ages and all had a great time. The food was fantastic, nice and hot, presentation was good. We had come to see a family member who was part of Beatle Magic, George to be exact. We were seated fairly close to the stage and loved every minute. Thanks again for a wonderful evening.

It was a very fun night and we all enjoyed our self. The service was a little slow and our drinks took forever to get but we understood it was busy. Maybe nights of live music more waitresses on would help. I know it is hard to find people to work so we were perfectly fine. It was a great night and the food was excellent.

They overbooked reservations for the show and when we arrived we were told we have the option of sharing a table with other people (during Covid) or no table.

It's great that they have a full bar and many choices of what to drink. Even lemonade in the winter! The nose level is moderate since there was a band there and we were in the back semi close to them. You can get a table in front of you don't like the noise and they have a beautiful fireplace up there with a few televisions. A great night!

I sent an email to the Stage.
Long story short I made reservations over a month ago for this event. When we arrived they told me that my party was already seated and they were not. So my reservation was given away. We were sat at a table that was in the front couldn’t hear the band, it was freezing and no lighting. Then I was told that the reservations were first come first serve. That is unfair to people who make reservations well ahead Ian advance, then we arrive my reservation was given away. Also when making the reservation I put I would like to be near the stage not put in the back where it’s freezing can’t heat the band and no lighting to even read the menu. This is not the first time this has happened. People who came later than us were getting moved up. We were finally moved up asking a few times to be moved to at least a warmer table.
You should not have a comment box when booking as you do not accommodate any requests.
I will not be returning I will see the bands when they are else where. The waitress was amazing and very apologetic for the disservice.

I rated the volume as moderate since there were two bands playing. One after the other of course. We had a very fun night and Michele was a great bartender/server! Thank you so much!!

Went there for the 80's Hairband through Open Table and they overbooked everyone. Ended up getting a seat way in the back with no view of the stage. It would be nice if the owners would add video of the performance and show it on the TV's for the people who had to pay the same price and wasn't able to see the stage. Also, they made each individual person at our table order food that wasn't ready till after the show. Had to take it home with me. Food was OK at best, has potential to be better if they put a little more thought into customer service. Took over a half an hour to get our first drinks and that was only because the manager noticed us sitting there for an extended period of time.

A great place to see bands! Huge stage! Multiple televisions so you can watch sports at the same time. And a nice fireplace in front away from the stage. In case you like it a little quieter. Wonderful seeing West of the Mark again! Sorry I already deleted the photos I took. Next time.

COVID has reeked havoc on the wait staff and the venue sucks when you have to stay seated.
