They said it was all you can eat food and drink in the club level. What a joke, unless you like soggy egg rolls, burnt crab ragoon, sweedish meatballs, or tasteless pulled chicken sandwiches which were portion controlled. The drinks were adequate. Not necessary a full bar as advertised but enough to get by. The seats were really good as... More

I came here with my son for the Maroon 5 concert. It was packed, but everything was running smoothly. Security was present, but not overwhelming. My son is 10, so I was a little worried about getting separated, but there is lots of space so you never feel like you are too packed in with the crowd. There were lots... More

I was staying at the Tampa Waterside Marriot which is across the street from the home of the Tampa Bay Lighting the Amalie Arena. The Lighting was in town on Tuesday night so we walked over to the arena and purchased tickets. The place was jumping with excited TB fans. Made you get right into the action. The arena is... More

Surprisingly, the acoustics were all they should be and the conductor even commented on the ambiance of the Arena where only one fourth of the seats were used. Also attended the circus here a few years ago and thought the arena was not as good for the show. The arena... More

On a one event night, you can find good parking and get in and out without too much trouble. Yet if there is more than one event happening one the same day - like the TSO Christmas Concerts - its a disaster! Nice facility, good food options, and nice bathroom facilities this is a good place to catch a concert,... More

Great not only for Hockey Games but for concerts and circus. The Chase Club Level is amazing for food and drinks during the hockey game...yes, tickets are much more pricey - but a great date occasionally!

I have been to several Lightning games and a couple of concerts and both had wonderful service from staff. From where to go, to thanking me for coming. Food is everywhere and clean bathrooms.
