We've seen many Bills games here, but not since the new improvements. Really liked the fact that if you can't get in the game, you can still watch from outside on the screens... read more

This is my third stadium and I enjoyed it. Entrance was smooth, seats were spacious and exit was easy. Granted a lot of people had left but it seemed well planned. Stands and bathroom were easy to get in and get out.

A remarkable game day experience which more closely resembles the game day experience of a college game. The fans are informed and energetic and the stadium has great sight lines.

We've seen many Bills games here, but not since the new improvements. Really liked the fact that if you can't get in the game, you can still watch from outside on the screens. Lots of people were sitting on the lawn or on the big boulders and still felt like they were part of the game. Always a great time... More

Friend and I went to the Bills-Patriots game on 9/20/15 and sat in the 300 level at "The Ralph". First time here. Full disclosure -- Patriots fan wearing team logo baseball hat. A significant portion of the fans were either hostile, over-served or vulgar. Some were all of these. Tailgating here is almost out of control. People are allowed to... More

We attended the Bills-Patriots game and had great seats. Out of all the stadiums I've been to, this one had the best bathrooms (ample stalls=no long lines, very clean). You know it must be good if I'm taking the time to write a review! The concession stands were efficient, although they ended beer sales at half time. This may be... More

The football game was great, not many places like this to see a game. The down side there is no lids anywhere for anything beer, pop, water ect which makes it difficult to carry drinks. It's an older stadium with poor bathrooms and limited food services, but atmosphere can't be beat

They have by far the best tailgating in the NFL even though the rules are getting more and more strict and security could do more to be nice to the fans. The vending and bathrooms need to be expanded and but it is easy to get to your seat and the new pro shop is exceptional. They could expand the... More

We took in the season opener against the Colts, and even with the rain and the cool temperatures, it was a great time at the Ralph...quite possibly my best time there in nearly 20 visits. Our seats were in the upper deck, and on the goal line - nowhere near premium tickets, but we had a blast. The crowd was... More

My wife and I are have tickets for the Bills/Colts game in Sept. It will be our first NFL game on only our second visit to the US. We have no previous experience of what to expect when we get to either the City of Buffalo and the stadium itself for the game. I have read that the locals are extremely friendly and are only to pleased to help visitors and lost souls like ourselves and i have a number of questions that i could do with help and advice on. We are flying in to Buffalo Niagara Int. arriving at about 8am and are staying at the Best Western on the Avenue for the one night, flying out on the Monday evening.

So any advice on the following would be a great help.

Firstly how to get from the airport to the hotel, we are more than happy to use public transport.

Secondly how do we get from the hotel to the Stadium, again public transport is fine with us unless advised not to do so.

What time does anyone advise us to get to the stadium, our seat numbers are Section 316, Row 30, if that's of any bearing.

I have read that Buffalo Bills tailgating is possibly the best in the NFL. What can we do about joining in, what time does it start, where do we go, who do we see, we don't mind paying our way.

After the game what does everyone do, where do we go to, hopefully celebrate the win or to drown our sorrows in defeat, i am a Manchester City FC season ticket holder, thats a football (soccer) team in the UK and we have our own after match routine.

Any recommendations on where in Buffalo to go on the Sunday night. We are both 51yo, so nothing too young. Live music or a lively bar or two downtown would suit. It is Buffalo, so who serves up the best Buffalo wings and should we be booking in advance. Best place near the hotel for a night cap, dont like hotel bars really.

We have all day Monday to go up to the Falls. Again any advice on exactly where to go and how to get there, again public transport is fine by us. Places for breakfast, lunch and we have time for dinner before our flight back to NYC late evening, suggestions are more than welcome.

I am sure the people of Buffalo will be able to help us make the most of our very short stay in your city and all advice, information and suggestions will be catalogued and greatly appreciated. GO BILLS.
