It’s a great place to watch watch sports events and is the home of the Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bandits.

Great arena for hockey, lacrosse, and concerts. Great parking within a few mins walk or an attached parking garage if walking is difficult or you just don't want to see the weather outside.

Went to see the Sabres play, they stink unfortunately, and could not believe how bad the food options and quality are. Otherwise it’s a great night out. Tickets are cheap and the ushers don’t check your stubs so,buy the cheapest available and sit wherever you...More

In my opinion..... Like most sporting venues, it's all about trying to make as much money off of the Fans as possible and this place is no different, maybe even worse! Sure the place is nice for a hockey game but the concessions were ridiculous....More

Fantastic facility with great staff and friendly fans. Handy access via Metro Rail from many downtown hotels. Free from Fountain Square. Wide variety of food options and we think they handle the lineups quite well. Enjoyable night on the town. We also won the game...More

Great example of a modern arena. Watched the local Sabres hockey team take on Florida. Good (but not great) concessions with plenty of outlets, but a limited choice at the usual exorbitant prices!

The first thing I learned on this visit was to avoid the parking that is several blocks from the arena. I paid $15 for parking about five blocks out and then proceeded to walk past several lots closer to the arena that were only $10....More

Waiting outside in the back of the arena where the players arrive is your best bet. When I was younger, I used to wait out in that area and I was lucky enough to get some autographs.

We like Pizza Plant. It's at the same place as the Courtyard by Marriott. Great before or after the game. They have more than Pizza and we love the atmosphere. Also, fans talk about the game after which is fun. It's a... More
