“Great Day at the Ballpark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

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 is usually the case with sporting events. The park was nice, clean. The staff was nice as well. Great day of family fun! Go Dogs!

Enjoyed watching the game, unique stadium! The stadium is updated and easily accessible. Parking is a little far away.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

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!

“The Joe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

The first night we thought it was a 7:05 game, nope, 5:05. Saw the last 3 innings. Asked at guest relation about next night tix ,explaining what happened, and she comped us two tix for the next game. Next night $1 beer and dogs- rainout! Third night the Joe, double header. Still $1 beer. Wild assortment of hot dogs. Fun times.
Another thought, if you hate working with the public stay out of the concession stand. I don't need your attitude! Team staff was awesome. Great group of people. Neat old timey stadium.

“Awesome Place to Catch a Game”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

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.
