We visited with family and friends a party of seven. Seated quickly. Service was very good. The beer list was very impressive. Lots of excellent micro beer choices. I had the Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteak, which was amazing.

We have frequented Arena for many years and absolutely love the food, service and location. As an extremely frequent business traveler, this is the kind of place to unwind after a long day if you're from out of the area. Great beer and food selections. The staff is fantastic and we will continue to be loyal customers.

the restaurant was crowded when we were seated so I thought the service and food quality might suffer like it does at many restaurant's but I have to say the servers at this place are second to none and they work so well together to insure the customer is always satisfied, great job guys and girls. So then I thought... More

Last night at arena I got the OMG burger and it was seriously the best burger I've ever had. They also have a great 2 dollar happy hour where house wines and like 50 drafts are included. Really good service too. Would recommend to anyone

The selection of beer here is huge and frequently changing. During happy hour the drafts are only 2 dollars, so it gives you the opportunity to try rare and unique beers without risking a ton of money. The food is great. They have the typical bar food you would expect at a bar food price, but it tastes like it... More

There is an overwhelmingly large selection of beers--foreign, domestic, and craft-brewed. The prices are a bit high, but you can't beat the selection. I had a flat iron steak with bourbon sauce, and it was absolutely delicious. The portion size was not huge, but the quality was terrific and the price was fairly reasonable. The dessert was middling: chocolate thunder... More
