  • Great place to go see a hockey game. Went as a Leafs fan and the atmosphere was amazing. The facilities are clean and all working, and food was pretty decent for arena food. Prices are far cheaper than at the Scotiabank arena so that's always a plus. Entry is smooth and efficient and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. I'll be back in March to see the Leafs beat the Sabres again!

  • 12-13-18 Thank you to the Ushers and Head Usher for helping my husband and i find a place to accommodate a wheelchair. Not only did they find a place, but were upgraded from 300 to 100 level. The game was fantastic and we won! Thank you again!

  • Great location and layout like most places in buffalo. Great views despite really high seats. Transport and ride sharing options are great. Good variety of concessions, though horrendous prices. Ample parking and helpful staff.

  • Great arena in downtown Buffalo! Probably could use a little more TLC in the building itself but it still felt pretty modern. The food options were okay, and there were beer stands aplenty. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house for the Sabres games as well. I had nosebleed seats and I saw the entire rink without issue.

  • Used to be a terrible atmosphere for a Sabres game but getting a lot better as the team gets better. It is not a good venue for concerts and acoustics are bad. Just like how you can tell concrete buildings, arenas, and stadiums from the 60s and 70s, it is pretty easy to tell it's from the 90s. The seating is angled poorly for any kind of true interactions between fans, or feeling any connection with what's happening on the floor/ice/court/etc. There is nothing special about it and really nothing that roots it to the community. There isn't any famous event that's happened there.
