The Patriot Center (now renamed the Eagle Bank Arena) has always been a place that my family and I have loved visiting. There are always concerts, shows, circuses, and sporting events going on. There is something for everyone here.

This trip we saw cirque du soleil varekai at what is now called Eagle bank arena. Very good venue with lots of food options, good parking and helpful staff. Expensive food and drink but normal for these type of stadiums/arenas. Seating and music was excellent for the show and have always had positive experiences on any of the events we've... More

I attended the Washington Bridal Showcase at the Patriot Center. This facility is totally devoid of charm. I know this is a sports facility. However, more could be done to make this facility more inviting. The food that was served was horrible. How can you undercook a hotdog? I would only go back because the function that I needed to...

So Patriot Center (aka Eagle Bank Arena) has been around forever and is located on the campus of GMU right off of Braddock Road, across from University Mall Shopping Center (strip mall), just east of 123 (ox road) and Braddock intersection. Depending upon the event, the traffic lanes can backup through the other intersections and with the incredible nice drivers... More

Located on the George Mason University campus in Fairfax County, Va., near Washington, D.C., this "Patriot Center" is a venue that should not be overlooked. (I think it's soon to change its name to something commercial). The ticket prices for performances are reasonable, there is nearby free parking, and the selection of events should please every palate. Their web site... More

The location is very good since it's not too far from D.C. and easily accessible by car. Parking is free and clearly marked, so are the directions even before you get onto the George Mason University campus. I like to attend performances here since The Patriot Center is not too large and overwhelming and getting out of the parking lot... More

It is round, so all doors lead to where you want to go. Website is good for planning where to sit when ordering tickets. Not the best acoustics, but usually a good sound system. Sometimes hard to remember where you parked.

Many Fairfax County schools use the Patriot Center to hold their graduations, due to its size and ease of access. Parking can get you right to the doors, and they actually mark access lanes with cones to make it easier to get in and out. All in all, a very convenient facility.

Nice and clean with free parking. Easy to find. The seats are a bit jammed together, but I liked that the venue it on the smaller side.

Recently attended a Pentatonix concert. Had to park in the parking garage a good distance from the concert hall. Would have been nice if their were signs directing us where to walk. But everything else was good. We have decent seats. The group was great.
