We have attended football games in this historical stadium for almost half a century now.So my bias in clear! It also offers chairs with backs in the outdoor seating for comfort as well as more high end enclosures. It is close to University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics and many parking options. Lots of fun and fun sandwiches,drinks, await you... More

We had a very good game day experience overall. We arrived at the tailgating lot early, which is highly recommended because traffic eventually became almost unmanageable. I like that they give you a thick trash bag as you enter. The parking lot supervisor directed us to a prime spot to set up our canopy, grill, and table. He also made... More

Visited a game in a packed stadium. Incredible atmosphere watching a game with 70,000 of your closest friends during the game. Awesome tailgate all around!!

The atmosphere of this stadium was great - fans were so nice and there wasn't a bad seat in the stadium. There was a ton of tailgating outside the stadium which was a lot of fun and we also took a lap around inside the stadium to see it all - overall great experience!

Nice place to watch a game but concourses are crowded and concession line is worse than other Big Ten venues. Left the game with 3 minutes left in the half and barely made it to my seat before 2nd half. Staffing at concession could easily have doubled. Inside, video replays were sporadic but otherwise everything was ok.

The stadium was nice. We were there as the visitors. The seats we got were under the big scoreboard. The music was terribly loud. So loud that the seats were vibrating. If you go, stay clear of sections 215, 216 and 217 in the south end zone. Especially up high. It made the experience pretty miserable.

Great signeage and tons of washrooms! Lots of food and vendors in the stands too. Jumbotron makes the game even better, very clean facility.

A fun stadium to watch a game in, for sure. As a visiting fan, the people there were very friendly. One issue though, were that the aisles were so narrow that it made for a daunting task to get in/out of your row, so bringing food and drinks back was especially difficult. We were in the north end zone, so... More

Friendly Iowa crowd in aging stadium with some amenity skyboxes. Seats, facilities, and food predictable. Some Skybox levels permit alcohol consumption. Cute Hawkeye Express Train transports fans from remote parking.

What a sweet stadium. The Hawks lost but we still had a great time. I really wished they served beer though. Lines for the restrooms went fast. Can't wait for my next visit
