My wife and I attended the Sawyer Brown concert at the Blue Gate event center on January 14. The concert hall was very acceptable, the sitting and sound was very good. However, if your looking for a "concert hall" experience then this won't be the place you're going to want to go to. We will attend another concert here in... More

Very very good dinner buffet with only a couple of very minor complaints. Seriously, extremely minor... I would like to see Italian dressing & green peppers added to the salad bar and maybe a drier roast beef, like maybe sliced off the bone. That's it, the show was fantastic, the staff extremely helpful and friendly. We will be back when... More

Excellent venue to see an act, music entertainment. The place is small, which makes it nice for those of us who don't care for large auditoriums to see music acts. Chairs are comfortable, we had a good view from the middle of the floor. Our show was also on large screens.

Excellent preformance by Sawyer Brown! The theatre was small which made it great for viewing even sitting in the back.

So far, I've seen Tanya Tucker and Sawyer Brown at the Event Center. Up close and in-person experiences. I am looking forward to seeing the Man in Black Tribute, Bill Engvall and Loretta Lynn, all later this year with front section seats! There has been a merchandise tablet at each concert that I've been to and concessions (but, remember it's... More

We enjoyed your package deal. Loved Sawyer Brown. I just wish you offered tea in the rooms, especially decaf tea or herbal. Also decaf or herbal tea in your dining room. We did have a problem with the gift card as part of the package. It had not been activated. We were trying to use it on Sat. Before the... More
