“Oakland Coliseum (now the o.Co Coliseum?)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

Besides the Oakland A's, you can also catch concerts, ice shows, circus acts, occasional evangelistic revivals, etc. The Oakland Raiders play in the stadium next door, causing gargantuan traffic jams and parking lot snarls that may last for hours.

“Long in the tooth”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

This is a ball park ready for replacement.The rest rooms are poor. It looks sad compared to other parks like Pac Bell.

“It's old and ugly, but it's a great place to watch a game”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

Except for the seats in Mt. Davis, all the seats have great sightlines. They also let you bring in food and soft drinks. Now if only Lew Wolff would seel the team to someone who cares about baseball and who would build a new stadium here.

“Needs work...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

It's one of the oldest stadiums in the country and it is really beginning to show its age. I'm an A's season ticket holder with great seats behind home plate. Only the seats and "eternal hope" made me renew them this year. The stadium is not a draw for the fan.

“Raiders Versus Chargers Game”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Had a great time in our suite. The server that was assigned to us was a hoot (Trevor). He was very attentive to our needs. Now the ladies who worked the reservation desk needs a personality check. They were so short and rude to everyone in line. Folks were complaining about this one particular host I couldn’t get her name but everyone that goes to the game regular in our suite says she always like that. All in all we had a wonderful time. You got to try their Prime Rib sandwich dipped. Damn that was a good sandwich. Also the “Black and Silver” featured drink was exceptional as well. I’m a diehard Dallas Cowboy fan but Jerry Jones can learn a thing or two about keeping the fans happy with some reasonable pricing for food (especially when you’re not making the playoffs but once in 15 years). I’m just saying.
