Its good place to watch sports, ok place for concerts, expensive place for food and drinks. (eat befor you go to anything there) Parking sucks. Needs a parking garage teid to it with a walkway to avoid the weather. Long walk to the ford center from any parking lots.

Free parking Nice facility.... I am use to more flash and promos for a minor league team. We walked up to the window 25 minutes before game time and purchased the family 4 pack... $10 seats at the end of the ice by the goals. Nice stadium, cleaned bathrooms, they did not have much of a crowd tonight.

Came to watch Carrie perform - amazing concert!! Well worth to watch and not a bad seat in the house thanks to her circular, centralized stage set-up. Large crowd, long lines not unexpected, but exiting was a cluster. Parking too. Only reason I wouldn't give total stars is lack of clear direction. Facility itself was clean and had multiple locations... More

We went to the recent Indiana Pacers/Milwaukee Bucks game. Security was good, our seats were easy to find. Staff along the way were friendly. We had great views, sound was good. The only complaint was the food service at halftime. The kids were hungry, so right at the buzzer my husband took them to the concession stand. The line did... More

We've recently been to the Center for a Cirque performance and also a concert. In both instances the cleanliness and sound of the facility was great. Location in the downtown area was easily accessible with ample free parking. Plenty of food & beverage choices as well. We've sat in multiple locations and found the seating to be comfortable and having... More

It had lettuce salad, grilled chicken breast, salmon, Sausage and Kraut, and pork chops as well as a noodles, scalloped potatoes and green beans... More

DOLLY PARTON!!! Ok, now that I've got that out of my system, The Ford Center. We come into town from Nashville to see Dolly on her new Pure and Simple Tour. Weird, I know, but she wasn't performing in Nashville & Evansville was the closest. Luckily I'm from Owensboro & we got a couple people together to make a night... More

Recently went to the Dolly Parton concert at the Ford Center. My out of town relatives were very impressed with the building. They were amazed we didn't have to pay to park and didn't have to walk far. Good service at the bar. Not a bad seat in the place.
