Rated 4.2 out of 5Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum Star Rating

5 Star Rating Wow I was pleasantly surprised by the seating. Court side seats?!?! Wasn’t expecting such awesome seats. Game was very entertaining but too bad the nets lost. Food was mediocre and the drinks provided in the buffet was super watered down. But was nice to check out the vip lounge. Great event!!! Staff at venue was super nice and friendly. Would return!!!

4 Star Rating Great seeing Islanders at their true home again. Only problem is flags block clock on scoreboard. Good flow around concourse with good food choices available.

5 Star Rating Organization could of offer something much better outside to the checking point, nevertheless it was my first experience, and I must say that the event was great! I bless God for a wonderful evening ,especially... getting the opportunity to see YOLANDA Adams in person for the first time. I were so trill.

4 Star Rating We went to the Home Improvement show. Cost $5 to park and free admission. Vendors hawked to get in home appointments and tried to sell you the benefits of their products. Location was fine, parking easy and close to entrance. A couple of food concessions stands were open but why pay triple here when you can easily find something in the area to eat. Overall not a bad show, just looking for more varied home improvement vendors, too many clothes and and non home repair items this time.
