We always try and take in a ball game on each holiday to America. Previously these have always been major league games, but the nearest to Charleston was a long drive away so we decided to try the Charleston River Dogs at the Joseph P Riley Jr stadium. We were not disappointed as the evening was great. The stadium is... More

Beautiful views over the marsh from behind the stands on the 1st base side. Wonderful food options and a great family atmosphere. The Riverdogs' PA program has gone downhill this year with the loss of an M.C. and the in-game on-field "games" are not nearly as entertaining, but if you're there for baseball then that doesn't matter. "The Joe" is... More

Home to the Charleston Riverdogs, minor league affiliate of the NY Yankees. This ballpark is modern, well laid out and very clean. Great food selection including an enormous selection of hot dogs. They have beer milkshakes (which I did not try but sounded very interesting).

We went to watch the River Dogs play on a Wednesday afternoon. The outer perimeter of the park had been turned into a "water park" and there were kids everywhere! We were traveling with our kids, so they were beyond excited. The game was great. We did have to walk quite a distance to get to the park, but that... More

This is such a fun place to come with your family (young kids especially) and with your friends! They have food/beer specials and lots to do besides just watching the game!

I spent the summer of 2012 working as an intern for the Riverdogs. Everything about this stadium and the quality of baseball is awesome. Fantastic food and views of the Ashley River from up top. If you are lucky you might see Bill Murray wondering around! He is a minority owner of the team and frequents many games.

Beautiful stadium with no bad seat in the house. Great food including some of the most outrageous hot dogs around. Good value, always a breeze as it overlooks the Ashley river
