This is a very old stadium in need of refurbishment. It is all old grey cement and suffers from years of spilled drinks (and more). To their credit they have a nice ring of food services with a great variety or interesting choices. So much better than Qualcomm which is equally old grey cement ha ha! We recently saw Blake...

Venue staff are pathetic. Ran out of food 30 mins into the game. Lined up for 25 mins only to have my order unfulfilled. Absolute joke

What can I say... so many entrees and dessert but you can only eat so much. Their buffet has so many to choose from. However my favorite was the nopal salad! Yum!!!

Hockey night with the San Diego Gulls is always the best. Great entertainment, family oriented. Players are top rate.

Went to watch a WWE event here. The venue is really nice, just the right size. Easy to walk around and find your seat. Good food on offer as well

For $20.00 (if you sign up as a member which you can do at the cashier's desk at the Buffet restaurant) otherwise it's a little more $. Lobster Mon thru Thursday 4 pm till 7 pm. Steak and seafood lunch $10.99. Such an amazing selection emphasis on variety, although calling it Maine Lobster is a stretch. The staff from the... More

Attended a concert here and was a little concerned because this is an older venue in a busy neighborhood. Drove by to check out location after seeing comments on Tripadvisor. They hold swap meets during the day and there were a lot of people just hanging around. Parking cost $20 and was easy enough to get in and out. Staff... More

We visited the Arena this past weekend to see the Who. I'd been there previously for a pre-season Laker's game (half empty) , but the Who was sold out, so I wasn't sure what to expect.

While in the San Diego area, we enjoyed this buffet twice. It is a great deal and the food is fantastic. They offer Chinese, American,they have salads and pastas. Everything was wonderful and the desserts were bountiful. The coffee is also very good after a delicious meal and everyone there was pleasant.

Tried the lobster bites!! they were great. the arena does get very packed due to the lack of management properly using rope lines keeping the main aisle open for safety. it took a long time to navigate...
