Came to Mardis Gras celebrations here and we were not disappointed. The facility was clean however very old and historic feeling.

The Mobile Civic Center is truly showing its age but still provides a festive venue for Mobile Mardi Gras Balls and celebrations. This aged facility still serves as the hub for Mardi Gras in Mobile.

Many people have given negative reviews for this venue because of its age. I have attended many events at the Mobile Civic Center and I feel that it is a great place for any type of event. We visited this last time for a career...More

This is an older venue. Restrooms are located on either side of the center. So you may have a long walk to the restroom. It was nice temperature. The view from the stands was good. Steep stairs however without railing.

I miss attending concerts at this venue. Fantastic visiting after 24-25 years of absence. I should have taken pictures before we left to return to Florida.

We attended a dance competition there. The seats are comfortable. Restrooms were clean. Concessions were not great but not the worst we've had.

This place either needs some super revamping or it needs to be torn down completely. It hosts many of Mobile events, but I feel like they could do so much better with the venue if they just budgeted towards renovations.

This facility is just average at best and is showing its age. Facilities are not as big as some of the others that are available. Parking is not convenient and can be costly.

The Mobile Civic Center has served the city well, but now it's old and dated and should be torn down and replaced. I have attended many sporting events, concerts & graduations in the Civic Center over the years but it's time for something new.

Dated facility and $5 parking don't make this this most visitor-friendly place we've ever been. But, for our purposes, it was fine. Make sure to allow extra time to get there if you're visiting during parade season, or on the day of a run scheduled...More
