My favorite arena in the area, followed closely by Barclays. The layout is nice and no matter where you sit you don't seem too far away. I've seen all kinds of events here and sat in all different areas and have always been happy. The food is average arena food and nothing really stands out but the Fire & Ice... More

Visited for basketball game. Very expensive, low quality food offering yet getting slowly better with more choice. QPR is bad. Parking is expensive but convenient from adjacent ramp. Higher level seating is average.

I revisited the Prudential Center last winter for an ice show. I sat in the first row on the ice. Unfortunately, an usher with a smile on his face walked in front of us several times. It seemed very unnecessary and disruptive to me watching the show. I have no idea what he was doing. When I used to go... More

The location is right smack in the middle of Newark which isn't the best area so be careful. The Arena is only 7yrs old so its fairly new. The food is not... More

Kudos to the staff at the Pru Center. My wife and I just went to the NJ Devils Game and found the staff on every level of the arena helpful and pleasant. You guys and gals made the evening extra special for us. Special thanks to the usher who suggested my wife and visit the Customer Service Desk to swap... More
