The show was great and all enjoyed it. Parking was close and well lit. Food was very overpriced and not very tasty. Popcorn concession was Disney's and it was $10.00 for box of popcorn so will not be going to anything Disney again. Toys were also ridiculously priced. ridiculous priced so will not be going to any more Disney shows.

Arena concessions had what seemed a balanced selection and looked good, but I had none. Show rated 6 out of a possible 10.

I have been to EagleBank arena several times for shows with my daughter. Easy to park and walk to the venue. The cost of drinks and food seems to be pricey for this type of venue.

We attended a Maks and Val show at EagleBank. When we arrived, we were told that the stage was moved forward, and that our seats were now moved to the adjacent section. All the seats in the section we were originally supposed to sit were closed off. That added to the delay in seating. The show was not sold out... More

Eagle Bank Arena, formerly the Patriot Center is host to many great events (circus, ice capades, basketball, concerts, and more). Not to mention high school graduations. Easy access and plenty parking.

The venue is nice but I've only attended from out of state for nieces and nephew's High School graduations. My last visit I was impressed with security as we had an issue with unruly parents. The security guard handled the over zealous parents with courtesy and professionalism.

Went to graduation here. Ample parking and seating for those needing assistance only issue people ignored the reserved signs. All of the seats provided a good view for everyone. Video screens were up which made it easier to follow the ceremony. Only graduation I've ever been to where people were eating and drinking throughout. All in all, a good choice... More

My first arena review and happy to start with EagleBank Arena. There are so many events they have this down to a science. Whether it be sports, concerts, multiple graduations, Disney productions, even the annual circus, it is basically a first class plug-and-play. From concessions to traffic flow ingress and egress (be patient on Braddock Road though) the outstanding GM... More

The beautiful campus of George Mason University seems like it is situated in the midst of a national forest! The arena was easy to navigate, with excellent parking facilities.

I have been to several performances here. It is a typical basketball arena, where the George Mason Patriots play. It has hosted concerts and other events. Depending on the event, seats can be very good. The parking is very close to the arena.
