As always, a great time at Verizon Center to see the Caps play! Only thing I can complain about is that some of the concession workers are not attentive. At one of the beer stands there were 4 workers but only 1 was serving the customers. The other 3 just looked at us and continued talking amongst themselves instead of... More

I took my boyfriend here for his first Basketball game. I must say it is very nice. No leg room for stretching but you will still enjoy the entertainment. The food was awesome. We had Brisket sandwich, Mac n cheese, and hot dogs. Very good. Once in the ease of finding your seating is very easy and the staff was... More

I attend a lot of Washington Wizard basketball games here and have found that it is not as good of an experience as in earlier years. The staff is friendly - it is the manner in which the games are conducted during time outs and half time. Basically, they have cut out any interesting half time entertainment and have replaced...

It was excellent place to meet my old friend, we had walking and talking, plus it has too many options for food, it has a lot of restaurants inside it and in the near streets to it.

I heard this before but being a laid back person just kind of wrote it off as hyper sensitive people just complaining. Nope, went to Wizards & Knicks game tonight and have never experienced anything like this. Being yelled at by door staff, when I looked at him to as if to say what's your problem he put down his...

Okay, since this was a full house for the game and we are from out of town we ended up with the nose bleed section. But I was amazed at how well we where able to see the game. Easy entry and exit from the arena as well. Plenty of food choices as well.

We went to the Verizon Center as part of our holiday in the USA. It was a pre season match against Miami Heat. Not really a massive crowd but it was great fun. Enjoyed the chance to buy food and drinks during the match. Everyone was very friendly. The view was great - also helped by the massive screens. Great... More

In travelling the USA for the first time, attended my first hockey game , CAPS v Panthers. Top night out, because the good guys won. Purchased my tickets in row G, 4-5 months before game. Surprised to see approx 10-20% of tickets in the front bay not seated. Our tickets were not checked by staff, so to the masses in... More

In town for a night, and snagged a ticked for the game. It wasn't busy so I could spread out. People were friendly and it was a good night of professional entertainment.
