This was our first time to Nutty Jerry's and we were really excited to see Aaron Lewis because of all the good reviews we have seen online. We were not disappointed!!! The venue is a bit rustic/country but that only adds to the charm. We had seats in the fourth row and our view was great! I've read reviews about the long lines for drinks and my hubby and I found a way around that. We saw a nice beer waitress walking around and bought beer from her on our way to our seats. There is no limit on how much you can buy from her at a time so we loaded up and went to our seats and avoided the lines all together. Also to note, if you buy a bucket of beer I heard they charge you a bucket fee so keep that in mind. The restrooms were clean and easy to get to, no lines for me! I also thought the staff was very friendly and helpful. But what made this night out so great was the performer. Aaron Lewis was amazing! His voice sounded so good! He even admits that he's a bit static on stage - definitely not a showy performer but his vocals make up for that! We are definitely going back to see him again the next time he's there!!
Was not sure about this place but decided to take our son to a game, now I myself am no sports fan. However it was great, people were nice and friendly. We found ourselves there every time there was a game. What made it so great was the price was reasonable, close to home, and a family place. Concessions were available also. Parking was okay handicap parking was great drive needed a little work. I have been by there recently and there is so many improvements it is worth checking out yourself not just taking someones opinion.
I had tickets for the Paul Rodgers concert with Point Blank playing too. We drove to an empty parking lot at 8:50pm, I thought I must have gotten the date wrong... but no... I saw the box office open and they were giving refunds. They said the show was canceled an hour ago and that Paul Rodgers voice blew out. I'm sorry that Paul was having troubles with his voice and throat, but to cancel an event so late in the evening when everyone has driven from far away and booked hotel rooms? If you are going to cancel a show, please inform people early in the day. I know this is not Nutty Jerry's fault, I know he must be as upset as his loyal customers.
Nutty Jerry's was much nicer than I expected. Bleacher seats are wide & nicely finished. Sound was great. Parking lot needs to be paved, but we lucked out and got a ride on a golf cart! The only problem was BB King. We spent $100 for two bleacher seats, and all he did was talk. He sang maybe 4 songs. A major disappointment. Please let the poor fellow retire!
Nutty Jerry's does get good performers, more so than bigger Beaumont that is only 25 min. away! The venue is an old rodeo place, seating of bleachers on each side. You can't bring in a portable seat with back, it's not allowed, but they will sell you one or you are left sitting on a hard, backless bleacher for hours. Fold out chairs for the VIP section is probably the best in the front. I sat right behind the VIP area and shared a big table with strangers. A new set up to improve would be seating with chairs turned toward the stage, but that's not going to happen... Getting a drink is a joke. YOu will have to stand in line for 30 min. or more to get a mixed drink... might as well buy a few while you are there so you don't have to be miserable in line waiting and waiting.
No idea what to expect but was pleasantly surprised on recent outing to watch the Steve Miller Band. Didn't want to face driving back to Houston post concert so we got a room nearby. Dinner at Al T's Cajun Restaurant, all very close. Sign at door states doors will open at 7 pm, but no guarantee when band will take the stage. Was expecting a warm up band, but no, Steve Miller and company walked on promptly at 8 pm and started playing!Restaurant inside is closed, and there are apparently mechanical bulls and such upstairs.Long lines for beer and there were waitresses around although none came to our table. No worries, still had a great evening.
This was our first trip out to Nutty Jerry's. We came in from Houston & really didn't know what to expect because of some of the reviews here. First thing people need to understand is this is NOT the Ritz and don't expect it. The lines were long for beer & drinks, but that's par for the course anywhere you see a concert. Sound system was great and so were the staff. We bought VIP table seats and the people complaining about plastic tables & metal chairs must be spoiled and pampered to much. My wife & I will come back for sure..I guess it depends on the attitude you take with you and what your expectations are....AWESOME VENUE!!!!!!!!!!
We had a girls night out roadtrip to see Bret Michaels concert. Bought a VIP table and was told that people in front section would not be allowed to stand during songs but this was not inforced at all.wasted our money on the VIP table and the waitresses acted like they did not even want to be there and didnt want to even wait on us we ended up going and getting our own drinks. The concert was great but the venue really sucked for the price we paid. I do NOT recommend Nutty Jerry's for a concert.
This is not a normal venue & they lead you to believe that VIP is something that it is not. When we bought our tickets to see Bret Michaels we got the VIP, we were told that the VIP section was only 10 rows back from the stage & during the concert the first 10 rows have to remain seated, which was not the case & that we would have our own personal waitress providing us with food & drinks. We had to flag a waitress down because there was only 2 to serve the entire venue & once she did get to our table the only thing that the waitress served was beer, $4.00 canned beer, hot at that. Of course the concert was great but that had nothing to do with the venue. The people at Nutty Jerrys are extremely rude & give out misconceptions on what the VIP tickets are. As we were leaving my girlfriend had a bottle water in between her arm & one of the employees grabbed it out of her arm & said you cannot leave with that. I will not go back to Nutty Jerrys no matter who is playing in concert. It is a very poorly ran venue
Sound at this venu is not so good i left after the show with a major headach and wondered if i would ever come back i wont be back i dont think unless major changes with this place
