    Great views and always a fun place to see shows. The beer and drinks garden out back is open now and they take credit cards. Win!

    Beautiful and unique venue. The best seats are actually higher up, especially while it's light out.

    If the weather's nice, This is one of the best outdoor venues. If you drive though, tailgaters will wind up blocking several parking spots.

    It's just a really pretty, laid-back way to enjoy a concert. I wish more venues were out on the water like this.

    This venue needs to serve alcohol. They would make more than enough in sales to cover the drunk driving lawsuits that would ensue. Not serving booze is bad business.

    Bathroom situation is criminal!! Plus it's a dry venue unless you pay $50 for VIP (gaining the price ledge to drink over prices beer within a gated in area like cattle)

    Watch out for the camera nazi in orchestra c in the white mustache who makes it his goal to repremand every person taking a pic with aone of the 10,000 camera phones in the venue. :) lmfao

    Beautiful venue but the beer situation sucks. We had to pay $30 extra to get into VIP in order to buy $12 beers. I have been to a lot of shows and never experienced anything like this.

    It might be called Nikon at Jones Beach, but don't bring your nice camera. Nor a backpack or bottled water. Not allowed

    Seated outdoor venue-- very unique experience. Listen to good music (eg for concerts), while enjoying hopefully good weather, gazing at stars, and looking out into the water. Would come back!

    Parking lot was a nightmare last night. Even with parking near the exit we didn't move for 45 minutes. Beautiful spot to see a concert. Just need to work on exiting policy!

    Find the VIP tent & you'll find alcohol. Have a cab or car booked to get you back to Freeport station or you'll fall asleep waiting for the bus shuttle

    One of the coolest concert venues I've been too! It's right on the water, the sunsets are amazing, but bring a jacket, it can get chilly!

    When you sit close to the sky, you get to take in the view of the coastline, but not the performers. Just sneak to slightly better seats midway through the show.

    Awesome views during daylight hours, but don't forget a sweater for night. Brrr. Also - no alcoholic drinks served in the venue.

    Don’t forget to stop by the Nikon tent to 1) take your Fan Photo and 2) check out autographed memorabilia and Rock & Roll photography from some of your favorite artists!

    Get Creative - Try both wide angle and zoomed in shots. For example, get some of the crowd in the scene to help establish the mood.

    If there isn’t a lot of stage light, set the camera for monochrome instead of color, your photos will have a “classic” photography feel without the distraction of color.

    Take control of your photos - a Camera like the Nikon P300 lets you shoot great photos in low light with a fast f/1.8 lens and the ability to manually adjust shutter speed.

    Get Close - even if you’re not in the front row, you can still get great shots. Nikon’s COOLPIX S9100 has a long zoom lens that lets you get up to 18x closer.

    Eat before going inside and no alcoholic drinks. Only in the VPI area witch is an extra charge and ticket. Plus NO SHUTTLE BUSES to train station. Be prepared to pay $10 per person for a cab.

    DRINK BEFORE U GO IN! .... they serve outside or pregame in the lot. Once you're in they don't serve alcohol and they don't let u out .. it's a cruel trap!

    Having VIP access is great, its the only place to buy alcohol but come prepared to spend $12 for Beer's on tap and glasses of Wine... no hard liquor here! Also, $6 for a bottle of water or a soda.

    Try to park closest to the exit, otherwise you'll be stuck in the parking lot for half an hour, possibly more. Also no backpacks or outside food/drink is allowed.

    Colorful concert lighting can be tricky to capture, but very rewarding. Anticipate the shots to know when a performer’s face will be lit, and shoot for great colorful effects.

    Bump up the ISO - try setting the ISO on your camera in the 400-800 range to get better low-light shots, especially if your camera has a CMOS sensor like the new Nikon COOLPIX cameras.

    If you're taking pictures at sunset or in low light, try turning the dial on your COOLPIX to Night Portrait mode. The setting allows you to take pictures with well balanced light while preserving the

    This outdoor amphitheater is one of the few that is fully seated. The views are great at this oceanfront theatre where the boats line up in the bay.

    Eat before you get here. 13 gets you 3 chicken fingers, handful of fries and a the tiniest soda I've ever seen. Also 6.50 for a bottle of water.

    Love it! Summer only, dance or just listen to free live music nearly every night: local, tribute & oldies bands of various genres including rock from old school to classic to current, Latin & country.

    Great outdoor venue w/ good views & sound. The lot has always been relaxed & offers beach access. Get there early to secure the closer one for cheaper than VIP.Vending is usually decent.

    If you have orchestra seats, don't wear any shoes you would hate to be ruined! High tide can cause flooding (happened at Maroon 5 Wednesday). Had to stand in ankle deep water until the end of the show
