Went to a Royals Game! Great time, clean venue. Food was good, employees were friendly! Easy parking, security presence. Walked around nice gift shop. They also had a Variety of different food and beverage stands you could purchase anything of your choice. Would definitely go again! Thanks for a great night?

My spouse and I attended a concert at the Reading Eagle Theater at the Santander Arena on a Saturday night in late October 2016. The Reading Eagle Theater is a smaller (subset) venue within the larger Santander Arena. With a smaller end-stage concert arrangement, the back (unused) half of the seats are separated by a black curtain to create a... More

My wife and I went to see Casting Crowns. Wow, what an excellent experience. The sound was the best, the lighting was awesome. We sat at the 2nd row so that was even better.

This arena is not too big, that means you are never sitting so far away and there are a lot of seats available with a great view for boxing.The parking was close and reasonably priced. Prices for beer and food were great. The staff were helpful and the fans are all friendly people.

Every time I have attended an event at the arena it has been excellent. The facility is so convenient and access is easy. Whether it's a concert, a hockey game, a basketball venue or any other function, I've had a great time. The biggest plus for me is I can enjoy all types of events, park cheaply, exit and be... More

This arena is small, quite small. But there is not a bad seat in the house, that's the honest truth! Snacks and beverage choices are just above average. If you have the opportunity to get tickets to a show here, do it

Delicious menu and we loved the atmosphere! This is not your average Mexican food restaurant...the ambience is cool with dark lighting and chic decorating. The food has an upscale modern twist and is delicious!!!!

The arena was well laid out. All types of food, beer and wine. Seats are hard so plan accordingly. The traffic and parking were horrendous. And a freight train decided to pass by the front of the arena making a bad situation even worse. The city Fathers and Mothers need to develop a better plan when the arena is sold... More

I really like the size of the Santander venue. It is more intimate than going to events in Philadelphia. However, the seats are so close and there isn't much leg room. They guy next to me was not a large man and yet he was spilling into my seat. I went to get a drink and snack before our show... More
