  • Loved it there tonight. Only issue was with the food... The Wesbanco food section under 218.. food was horrible.. stuff overcooked. Cheese sauce was disgusting. But everything else was awesome!
  • Awesome place full of excitement, especially during Nailers games. Nice little arena not too far from home. Worth the drive to watch some hockey or whatever else is going on around it.
  • This places has really updated in the last two years. If you haven't been here in a while it is a really nice place to take in an event. Great new seats and a new video board.
  • The recent renovations are terrific. The seats are much more comfortable and everything has been freshly painted. Great place to watch a hockey game.
  • It's a lot smaller then Pittsburgh Paints arena but it is definitely nice in there. We were there for Disney's Frozen on Ice program. From where we were the seating was perfect.
