“Overall the place is average at best!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

The seating is great. The fire and ice bar is cool. I just hate the way the staff treats people. Also the parking is quite expensive and it takes 45 min to get out of the parking lots! I would rather go to PNC or Izod center for concerts.

“THE ROCK of Newark”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Awesome sports experience Jersey Style……The Prudential Center is the home of the NHL NJ Devils and provides the spectator with great sight lines and all the food amenities one can ask for. Take mass transit when possible but parking is available if you take your car. The arena is close to the “Down-Neck” neighborhood which has some great Portuguese and Brazilian restaurants.

“Great place to view a venue. Only drawback....no parking!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

Not a bad seat in the place. We saw circue de soleil's tribute to Michael Jackson here. Very entertaining. Also in a great area to make a day of it and grab a bite to eat. Only drawback is the parking!

“great concert hall”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

I have been to the Prudential Center for a few concerts and a basketball game, and I have to say, it's very nice. If you drive there, its not the most convenient, although parking is pretty good. I imagine if you take the train it would be easier. The inside is very nice with lots of bar areas and food stands. Overall, its a great venue and I highly recommend it to anyone thinking of attending a show or game there.
