“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

We were here for a George Strait concert and were impressed with how the stage was set up. There wasn't a bad seat in the house. The bathrooms were nice and had plenty of stalls considering the huge crowd. When we arrived I figured we would wait in line forever but it went really really quick which was nice! The beer was pretty expensive but that's to be expected. The building is also really nice. We did not try the restaurant but in seemed pretty fancy. We don't live in the area but if we did we would have no problems coming to events here.

“Great facility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Attended a concert there and it was great! Huge stadium but has a close feel. Everything is very spacious and the sound was good. There were good food choices (usual expensive prices) and there were lots of washrooms too. Great center. Getting out of the parking lot was time consuming but I think that was just due to lack of traffic police to guide people out. That is needed when there are 20 000 people at a concert.

“The football home of the University of North Dakota”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is a fabulous indoor football facility. The University puts on a great show besides the game. Tailgating is wonderful and being attached to the Canad Inn makes the Alerus Center a true destination location for people in the upper midwest. The Center has the ability to have a football game, convention, and wedding receptions all going on at the same time.

“Clean and neat.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

We were at the Alerus in January for bull-riding and a Montgomery Gentry concert. The set-up was a little odd - you sat in one area for the bull-riding and then moved over for the concert but it worked. The sound system was great and it was not overcrowded; security were typically pleasant ND'ers. We would definitely go back.
