Although I'm not a baseball fan, I attended a Orioles game with 20 of my neighbors and had a terrific time. The stadium is immaculate, seats offer excellent views and the food was good (although overpriced like most stadiums). Could bathrooms at other locations.

Seats are very good but need to be aware that many seats are in the sun for the entire time during day games Food choices are good and staff is very courteous

Enjoyed a business retreat in a suite coupled with some third-base line front row seats. As usual, the ambiance of Ed Smith is spectacular with great food, eats and drinks. The stadium is kept up very well and is great for friends, family & kids. The only wish (from a local) is to see Ed Smith host a minor league... More

Ben and Mrs Too try to get to Florida for spring training each year. This past winter, we were especially lucky to get to a preseason game (Mrs Too prefers the full games) between our Orioles and the Detroit Tigers, as well as watch the players drilling on the practice fields and in the cages (that is Ben’s favorite part)....

Super clean complex, great views of the field and players, friendly and helpful staff! The Orioles have hit one out of the park with Ed Smith Stadium.

As a lifelong Orioles fan, I simply had to take my family to Ed Smith Stadium when we found ourselves in FL in March. I'm glad we did, it's a great ballpark. The park is very well organized, and the ushers couldn't possibly be kinder and more polite. Everyone was so friendly, it felt like being somewhere where you knew... More

The game was great, the stadium is clean, the workers are super friendly and helpful. My mom needed wheelchair to her seat and they took us right to our van after! The food is awesome. It can be hot if the sun is shining and there is no breeze but we also saw a night game and there were fireworks... More

On our Spring Training road trip, we saw four stadiums. This stadium had the clearest directions of where food, restrooms, and seats were. We thought the crab cake sandwiches were the best stadium food on the trip.

Not a bad seat in all of the stadium. Food is great, including crab cakes. Ice cream is some of the best ever.

THE BEST stadium for spring training games! The perfect way to spend an afternoon - or an evening! Everyone is happy - everyone is very helpful and pleasant! The Bird and his handler, Kathy, are more than happy to help if you want your picture taken with The Bird. Always fun - even if the people next to you are... More
