Lovely outdoor venue, ruined by cheap crowded seating and a bar. Last time I was there(to see Willie Nelson) 2 drunk men refused to sit down, sang (badly) during the performances and were obnoxious. Also, people chat and hold up their phone cameras, blocking your...More

We love this place! Our last show was the opener of Joe Bonamassa's summer tour July 26th. This outdoor venue is at a amazing location on Shelter Island, with a view of the marina and Pt. Loma Hills to the left. The show was awesome,...More

Went her to see Joe Bonnamassa and were very satisfied with the small venue. Seating was a little cramped but o.k. They had servers taking drinks and snacks to your seats which was not expected. Easy to get in and out as we also stayed...More

Great show, Joe never disappoints but these tiny chairs, lashed together make it super uncomfortable to sit through the show! They have far too few restroom facilities. Can not figure out why they don't just add some nice port-a-poties!

We went 7-26-18 to see Joe Bonamassa on his Country Western Summer Tribute Tour. This was our first visit to Humphreys, and will not be our last! This is a 1,295 seat outdoor venue with some standing room; and some of the hotel rooms overlook...More

I think this is a beautiful venue with great performers, but the seating is so, so terribly uncomfortable. If to have any kind of back issues don't even bother. They lash the cheapest plastic chairs in the world together with plastic locking ties and there...More

It’s actually the WORST. The chairs are plastic folding, zip tied together. Unless the person next to you weighs less than 100 lbs they are basically in your lap. The sound is ok, but not great and NOT loud. So dude singing along to go-go’s...More

Beautiful and intimate outdoor venue. The view overlooking the bay was awesome and the acoustics were great. Seating was set up well and refreshment options were good although a bit pricey. Free parking available on the street if you get there early. Would definitely make...More

While I loved the atmosphere and the acoustics....it has to be said. The seating. It's just ridiculous. They've managed to cram the smallest, most uncomfortable plastic chairs closer together than should be allowed by the laws of physics. Seriously, you are going to get to...More

We saw Postmodern Jukebox. Fantastic show. Venue is very nice. Major fail is the seating. They use strapped together folding chairs. My husband and I are not large people but the seats are so close together you can not avoid contact with the person seated...More

All seats are great. It is a fairly small venue.
