The Galaxy Concert Theatre is a Vegas-style theater, located in Santa Ana, California. It features an eclectic mix of pop, rock and punk with both big names and up and comers. The venue has been the host of famous artists like Sugar Ray, Misfits, Anthrax, Culture, Dream Theater, Jerry Lee Lewis, Jackyl, The Fenians - St. Patrick's Day, Sebastian Bach, Rollins Band, and Big Top. In addition, the theatre prides itself in promoting local bands.
The theater has a dark and dreary atmosphere, perfect for spooky shows. It is recommended that you get a dinner reservation, otherwise you are left to find what few seats there are in the back or stand down in the pit area.
The theatre has a full dinner service with a varied menu. Some of the entrees include swordfish , filet mignon, New York steak. Some of the appetizers include chicken strips, vegetable cheese skins and Jalapeno poppers. Don't forget to try the chocolate wipeout or the mud piefor dessert.
Views are good from almost everywhere, as is the sound. The lighting is ok, although it is nowhere hear as flush as the House of Blues. Dinner reservations carry a $10 minimum, and all tickets have a two drink minimum. The drinks are reasonably priced and well mixed. The opening acts are a mix-up at times, but are generally better than those at the Coach House. Their lineup is usually pretty good, but it seems as if a lot of the better acts have moved on up to Anaheim. The service is usually good and good looking to boot, especially at the darker shows.
