I have avoided this place for as long as I can remember. Ever since Gateway days it was for me a miss. Too loud, uncomfortable with terrible food. The latest iteration of this is no better. The show - supposedly soundtracks was memorable only for one woman screaming her songs so badly that it was totally unlistenable, the music so loud that even a partially deaf person said it was too loud, and the seating - worse than before. Miss at all costs

After many months due to the covid19 lockdown the theatre opened again and we went to see Rock around the World which featured hit singalong songs. Due to covid restrictions seating was limited to about 50% of capacity so the atmosphere was lacking a little. We looking forward to the next show however.

After having lunch at a nearby restaurant we went to the theatre to watch the Sunday matinee show. Had great seats centre stage and thoroughly enjoyed the 80s vs 90s show. The performers put on a very good show and the band and singing were close to the originals. It's surprising but we knew all the songs even the one hit wonders. Very good and look forward to the next new show.

What a great improvement! In case you didn't know that you can take your own food in but no drinks they have to be purchased in the theater. Unlike Gateway, where it was miles away from the food area it's now next to many restaurants and takeaways. So you can grab a meal at a restaurant and walk over to the Theater after or just take in a take away. One can also order food online and have it delivered to your table.
We went the first night of a new show - 101hits- this show was fantastic and the sound was first class no distorted speakers. The theater is laid out well we were 4 rows of tables back from the stage but could still see the whole acts.
So if your looking for a good evening out consider this venue. You can also hire it out during the day for functions etc.

First time visit. Great show. Sound overpowering and deafening. Words of vocalist drowned. Adjust sound overall please. This is a small venue

We saw a very good Classic Rock show at our first visit to the Barnyard Suncoast. Excellent repertoire, very good musicians and good vocals. The venue, the layout and the organization, as well as the food, were all very enjoyable and top value. Thank you for a great night out!

Rhythm of the night is a great show, with both song and dance. The dance crew were fantastic, the "black mexican" really funny talented and can sing to boot. Whilst the band and especially the lead guitarist exceptional.
Only trouble was from where we were sitting. Overall sound too loud, more than 100 dB drums overpowering instruments and singers. Lighting back stage lighting with smoke generator obscured the dancers when they were at the back,and with only one spotlight they highlight of the show being the dancing was often in the shadows. Shout out to the cast for making the best of it.

The theatre is now situated at Suncoast Casino. Access is good and the atmosphere lively. We saw Dam Patlansky and band with opening act Rowan Stuart and both were good and bluesy. We sat on the balcony overlooking the stage and the sound at times was overpowering and distorted. Even so enjoyed the show. Access to the bar and toilets is very difficult with the balcony being crowded and full so this should be improved from balcony left of the stage.

Fabulous place for an affordable evening of entertainment. Well worth a visit. Pack a picnic or purchase food there or eat at one of the casinos restaurants.
