“Easy parking and great venue since renovation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Food could be improved. Easy parking. Could use some more restaurants around the venue. Only the Columbia is there now that Channelside is virtually closed down.

“Great Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

You can see a hockey game or a concert and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Park at channelside and enjoy a meal or a drink.

“Hockey ?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Place is pretty cool with what they offer on the outside of the Stadium, but the parking is just terrible. There is no real place to park and its awfully crowded.

They need to upgrade the facilities as well, you can tell they are lacking that and that is probably why the fan support isnt where it should be.

Granted it is a big tourist town, they need to be able to draw and pull in those people visiting the area.

I saw a hockey game there and it was a good time, but they are in need of serious upgrades.
