Went to our first wild game at xcel. We had upper level tickets that were amazing. Could see every part of the game on the ice. Heard other people complain about lower level seats and not being able to see most parts of the game. Will be back again!!

This is one of the top nhl rinks in the nhl. It is very clean and not a bad view in the place. Pricing is very good for food and drinks. Nice big jumbotron.

I've attended many concerts at the Xcel and the place is great! All of the different levels of seating have great views. Food choices are ok, and they do sell beer and lots of other drinks in cans. Parking can be found close by too. Lots of restaurants near by so grab a bite before the show.

we were there for a week attending the competition. the food choices were really limited until the weekend. Just one food outlet open until friday night. Lines were so long you had to miss some of the competitions. Other than that we felt XCEL did fine

TheXcel Energy Center is--well--an arena. You're there to watch something, right? and though there are eateries aplenty, they're really an adjunct to your primary purpose, which is watching. And Xcel really does excel in this area. There's really not a bad seat in the house though depending on what you're willing to pay, how close you get to the action... More

It was the first time that I went to watch a hockey game and it was fun! The arena is built with the concept that everyone can follow clearly the game. The suites are amazing and the food really good!

I was here to work at the US Figure Skating Championships. Home to the minor league Minnesota Wild hockey team, this is one of the nicest and cleanest arenas I have ever been in. Good sight lines. Unique that there are not a lot of walls enclosing the seating bowl. Blackout curtains are used instead. Seats are comfortable and stairs... More

Great venue, lots of places to park, once you get in there were plenty of people to help you get where you are seated. They had plenty of different snack bars and a full resteraunt on the club level.no matter what you go there for. It is a great place
