Humphreys provides such an intimate and gorgeous setting on Shelter Island to enjoy quality performances. We thoroughly enjoyed Lea Michelle and Darren Criss. Our seats on the 15th row were fabulous. We had a great time and will certainly return!

We just attended our second concert here and can't wait for our 3rd next month. We love the outdoor ambiance with the incredible bay views. The staff here are very friendly and drinks are priced as expected. I probably should't be writing this great review...More
