What can I say... so many entrees and dessert but you can only eat so much. Their buffet has so many to choose from. However my favorite was the nopal salad! Yum!!!

Venue staff are pathetic. Ran out of food 30 mins into the game. Lined up for 25 mins only to have my order unfulfilled. Absolute joke

Hockey night with the San Diego Gulls is always the best. Great entertainment, family oriented. Players are top rate.

Went to watch a WWE event here. The venue is really nice, just the right size. Easy to walk around and find your seat. Good food on offer as well

For $20.00 (if you sign up as a member which you can do at the cashier's desk at the Buffet restaurant) otherwise it's a little more $. Lobster Mon thru Thursday 4 pm till 7 pm. Steak and seafood lunch $10.99. Such an amazing selection emphasis on variety, although calling it Maine Lobster is a stretch. The staff from the... More

Attended a concert here and was a little concerned because this is an older venue in a busy neighborhood. Drove by to check out location after seeing comments on Tripadvisor. They hold swap meets during the day and there were a lot of people just hanging around. Parking cost $20 and was easy enough to get in and out. Staff... More

We visited the Arena this past weekend to see the Who. I'd been there previously for a pre-season Laker's game (half empty) , but the Who was sold out, so I wasn't sure what to expect. First, the good: Getting into the arena through security was easy - there are a lot of entrances and they are all well staffed... More

While in the San Diego area, we enjoyed this buffet twice. It is a great deal and the food is fantastic. They offer Chinese, American,they have salads and pastas. Everything was wonderful and the desserts were bountiful. The coffee is also very good after a delicious meal and everyone there was pleasant.

We went to a Gulls game here. The building is a bit old but the seating was good. the food inside was good. Tried the lobster bites!! they were great. the arena does get very packed due to the lack of management properly using rope lines keeping the main aisle open for safety. it took a long time to navigate...

This is the filthiest concert venue I've ever been to. It's also in a lousy neighborhood. We went to check out the venue prior to the concert because we weren't familiar with the area. The neighborhood itself looked pretty sketchy. We did have a good time at the concert so if you can manage to ignore the filth and the... More
