This should really be a 2 Part ability to review both the Civic Center and SMG's Mack Gillenwater and Sysco Food Services for the Food and Beverage Service at the Civic Center. 1. The Civic Center rocks for the most part. Max Capacity is about 12,000 You will have to pay $5 to park inside the gated lot area OR... More

Great venue, saw the Ice Flyers and it was an excellent venue. Easy parking and easy access to the vendors. The prices were reasonable.

This place was built when there was a lot of free parking that the city of Pensacola has now messed up. Everytime there is an event the City rips you off for $10 to park your vehicle on to[p of the cost of tickets. Extremely poor management makes this place empty way too much. There should be more concerts and... More

We don't know much about ice hockey, but the Pensacola Ice Flyers put on a great show. The venue has lots of food and beverages, the time between periods has entertainment, and the games are a lot of fun to watch. The fans are enthusiastic and well-behaved. It was a great afternoon out. Make sure you are dressed warmly and... More

The show was brilliant. Dave Koz opened the show and he rocked the house. Manilow is Mr. Showbiz and should not be missed. The seats were comfortable on the main floor. The sound system was excellent. Restrooms and vendors conveniently located. Once inside the venue it was worth the effort to "hike" the ramps and stairs from the parking lot... More

The venue was apparently built for sporting events since almost all of the seats face the center area instead of the stage. There is not enough venue parking so they will overcharge for "designated" lots. There is not enough staff to provide needed information. The section I was in was designated as upper but the only way to reach it... More

Poor patron access. Older people 50+ have to walk up a extremely pitched long ramp. Poor traffic control assist. Traffic gridlock 45 min to get into Center's lot. 2 policemen sitting in patrol cars. Traffic lights not set properly to move congestion due to event. Ushers not tremendously helpful if you could find one. Last time we come here. Dated... More

Went to the center to see Donald Trump! Was located on the floor as overflow crowd. Was able to hear pretty well. Was easy to get in and out of building, especially with the massive crowd.

Went to see the Pensacola Air Flyers and what an exciting venue. Sat three rows off the ice very close to penalty box which provided some nice broken nose bloody views. Crowd was ecstatic all night and lots of entertainment for minor leagu. If you get a chance park it here and enjoy!

We went to our first Pensacola ice flyers hockey game this past weekend. The seats were great, don't forget a jacket if you go. This was a scrimmage, first really game is next week but we realty enjoyed getting to check out the arena before buying season tickets. Great fun good arena.
