Have been going to the Blue Note for years to see live music. The building is old and neat but somewhat poorly kept. Bathrooms were clean. It certainly has a college town bar feel. There is drinks but no food. Minimal seating. Mostly standing room....More

Heard the Turnpike Troubadours here. Good acoustics. Easy to find a place close to stage. Upstairs offer seating with a few tables in the main floor. Take a sweater. Once the bands start they crank the AC.

Fairly average, good-hearted place. My friend had a good time on the balcony. Best shows are often held in conjunction with local festivals.
