“Great Entertainment Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

The Hyatt next to the arena has great ribs in the Blue Fire grill, I think they are a secret, and yummy Lobster Bisque.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

Big enough for all the major venues. Small enough for everyone to enjoy the show.
