Great family fun and the atmosphere is great. You can bring the kids, come gang with guys, or just come enjoy a game and a beer alone. They have done really well with the upgrades in the stadium. Food choices are great and the promo nights are great too. One amazing thing is the teams owner and the Gm are very personable people. They actually get out and talk to the people and truly listen. Great experience!
Ticket prices are great. $9 gets you a front row seat! Definitely don't go hungry - the $13 fish and chips looked (and tasted) like a fast food kids meal! Perfectly uniform little nuggets of "fish" and frozen crinkle cut fries. Big disappointment!
