The National wide Arena is one of the nicest sports venues in the NHL. Everything about it was done first class including; the food options, non hockey entertainment, jumbo tron, etc. Makes for a great place to see a hockey game!!

I've been to a few concerts here over the last 11 years. The arena is nice and seems to have been upgraded in the last few years since I had been there.

Had so much fun! The employees were very friendly. Didn't like the Groupon seats are so steep, was worried about falling.

Saw the Blue Jackets play the Maple Leafs and was impressed with Nationwide Arena. It’s a nice modern venue with large, airy corridors on the main level. They have quite a few food options to choose from. Our seats in the lower bowl were good....More

Pretty nice facility overall. Seating may be a bit tight compared to other arenas. Biggest negative I could say is they only opened doors one hour ahead of time for event and with an arena of this size they may want to consider 90-120 mins...More
