I love going to concerts at jones beach theater. I'm lucky enough to live close by, but it's an experience that would be worth the trip if your not. Listening to some great bands and looking out onto the water is just amazing. Every seat in this small outdoor arena is good. There's always a breeze and beautiful sunsets. Plenty... More

The tailgating, the beach, the outdoor beach breeze. There's not much more you can ask for in a summer music venue. Best outdoor venue in New York by far.

JONES BEACH THEATER IS ONE OF THE BEST OUTDOOR PLACES TO SEE A SHOW. If the weather is good, the concert is even better. Seen plenty of shows here, i would not sitting in the Mezz level, you cant see anything and the sound seems like there is a delay. Orchestra seating is good and so are the stadium 1... More

The venue was great and I really enjoyed the show. I am from out of town and I did not realize that the bus did not run after the show back to the LIRR. That is my fault and I should have asked. A quick cab ride solved the problem. Fun Times

This is one of the best venues for outdoor summer concerts under the stars. The Venue is waterfront and the perfect place to enjoy a live show.

One of the worst venues I've ever attended. The tickets said show starts at 5:15 but actually show did not start until 7 and once you are in the venue, you cannot go out! This means that all food lines are ridiculously long. The food was not even worth the wait- no selection and nothing interesting. Not worth it.

The best place to see a concert on Long Island in the summer. Seeing the ocean and feeling the breezes cannot be topped!

Went to see the comedy fest last week. Time on ticket said 5:15. We weren't let in until 5:15 and then told that the actual show did not start until 7:00pm but there were non show comedians in the courtyard until the show started. Basically what that meant was that you could stand around, in the heat, in the concession... More

Went to see a Buffett concert. Great venue for a beach concert, had the typical and entertaining tailgate parties in the parking lot the excessive litter seemed to be the only problem out there. Upon entering the concert the security staff was a little aggressive with their pat downs, it is understandable that they have to conduct them but a... More
