A bowl style stadium. There isn't a bad seat in the house. The Cap received improvements including new concessions, and bathrooms, and wider concourses a couple years ago worth $135,000,000. Guinness and Guinness Blonde are served just beyond the top of my Isle. You can't beat the experience.

For me this is a must, it should be for most Canadians. To go and see a live NFL game is something special. Sometimes the fans can ruin it if you are cheering for the away team but if you get lucky and have some good people around you no matter what time of the year it is it can... More

We went to the game Christmas Eve. Aging stadium well taken care of. Die hard fans. Great fun. The stadium seems a bit in the middle of nowhere but it was easy in and out. We were coming from Niagara Falls less than an hour. Bills fans love to tailgate. Good vendors inside.

They have added more restrooms and concessions which makes the experience a lot more fun then it used to be. Great atmosphere. Tailgating is a must here, make sure to arrive when the lots open at 9am. For cold weather games, remember to dress warm and if you sit down it'll be on metal benches.

I went to my first game in Dec 2016 (Bills vs Browns). It was so fun to finally see my favorite team play. Sure we haven't made the playoffs in forever and many of the fans were quick to boo Rex Ryan and Tyrod Taylor, but the stadium was packed and the Bills players and fans were heavily invested despite...

This was my first NFL experience and it was everything I hoped for. Lots of friendly fans from near and far at the tailgate party, great atmosphere.Just make sure you get there early (before 10 am) if you want a decent spot. Lots of vendors on site so if you are looking for Bills swag you don't need to pay... More

We went to watch the Steelers play the Bills and the whole experience was a positive one. Check in was quick (albeit we were early). The food and beer was typically priced for a stadium. The Buffalo Mac & Cheese was great. Leaving the stadium was easy but leaving the parking lot closer to the stadium took forever as expected.... More

As a Canadian Tennessee Titans fan I love visiting RWS. The fan base really knows how to have a good time, even with apposing fans. Lots of great tailgate spots. Stadium is clean and great seats where ever you sit.

Got to enjoy the Oct 30 game at NEW ERA FIELD (Ralph Wilson Stadium) between the NE Patriots and Buffalo Bills. A beautiful facility, and amazing sight lines no matter where you sit I imagine. We were Section 108, on the 10 yard line, and 8 rows up. So close to the field! The atmosphere is amazing, as the BIlls... More

My wife and I are have tickets for the Bills/Colts game in Sept. It will be our first NFL game on only our second visit to the US. We have no previous experience of what to expect when we get to either the City of Buffalo and the stadium itself for the game. I have read that the locals are extremely friendly and are only to pleased to help visitors and lost souls like ourselves and i have a number of questions that i could do with help and advice on. We are flying in to Buffalo Niagara Int. arriving at about 8am and are staying at the Best Western on the Avenue for the one night, flying out on the Monday evening.

So any advice on the following would be a great help.

Firstly how to get from the airport to the hotel, we are more than happy to use public transport.

Secondly how do we get from the hotel to the Stadium, again public transport is fine with us unless advised not to do so.

What time does anyone advise us to get to the stadium, our seat numbers are Section 316, Row 30, if that's of any bearing.

I have read that Buffalo Bills tailgating is possibly the best in the NFL. What can we do about joining in, what time does it start, where do we go, who do we see, we don't mind paying our way.

After the game what does everyone do, where do we go to, hopefully celebrate the win or to drown our sorrows in defeat, i am a Manchester City FC season ticket holder, thats a football (soccer) team in the UK and we have our own after match routine.

Any recommendations on where in Buffalo to go on the Sunday night. We are both 51yo, so nothing too young. Live music or a lively bar or two downtown would suit. It is Buffalo, so who serves up the best Buffalo wings and should we be booking in advance. Best place near the hotel for a night cap, dont like hotel bars really.

We have all day Monday to go up to the Falls. Again any advice on exactly where to go and how to get there, again public transport is fine by us. Places for breakfast, lunch and we have time for dinner before our flight back to NYC late evening, suggestions are more than welcome.

I am sure the people of Buffalo will be able to help us make the most of our very short stay in your city and all advice, information and suggestions will be catalogued and greatly appreciated. GO BILLS.
