A great venue for hockey. The seating has great sight lines from everywhere. Seat prices for lower bowl seating was affordable.

Place was very good for concerts. Don't sit lower level front seats hard to see because everyone stands up and blocks view of stage .advice to buy tickets on upper sides better view .

We went to Amalie to watch our first Arena Football game. We've seen many, many venues over the years, Amalie is as good as any. Amalie is well located relative to major highways, but we did not easily find the best parking. Having said that, we didn't necessarily see many obvious parking garages for Amalie. There were a number of... More

Renovated in the last few years - easy access to all levels. Plenty of restrooms. Food is fried arena food and price as such; plenty of options. Ashers pleasant and helpful. Parking is easy if you get to the venue early (depending on show). Rented lots surrounding arena are expensive.

So much to see, enjoy and love. Channelside is next to it, Harbor Island is behind it and downtown is front of it. Can't ask... More

I really like the sound system here for concerts, absolutely fantastic! Hard to have a bad seat. Lots of food concessions available. Be warned however, unless you use valet parking you'll be hiking to the arena for quite some time and likely through dirt and mud.

Not a bad seat in the house! I truly enjoy watching events at this venue. They also host parties for away playoff games with other fans and fans of opponents. A very fun place and the parking is reasonable at $5.00
