    Great venue for sport, so long as you don't want a drink or use the restroom
    We went to the stadium to watch the Bruins play. The venue has amazing sound and lighting, which really gets the crowd into the mood and amplifies the atmosphere. Once seated the seats were surprisingly comfortable, far more than can be said about a lot of stadiums these days. The only downside to the venue is the lack of restrooms for the number of patrons. Unless you're on your way to the restroom as the siren goes, you'll be lucky to be back in your seat before the 20 minute intermission ends. The other thing that dampened the experience is how expensive food and drinks were. Expect to pay close to $20 for a large beer or other alcoholic beverage

    Go Celtics
    First visit. Went to a Celtics game. Easy access to get into the arena. Nice, newer arena. Seats were comfy if not a bit small. Bathrooms were adequate. I felt the food was lacking. Plenty of beer options and some bars for liquor but felt there was really only 4-5 different options for food. Anyways, great game. Go Celtics!

    First Bruins Game
    As a visitor to TD garden, things can look very intimidating looking at this arena as it is located on top of a bustling North Station train line. However, I found a lot of everything in and around TD garden to navigate easily with a little research. The Bruins main ProShop store is just inside the main North station entrance as you must enter from inside the station. Very nice selection of stuff and they actually offer discounts on older merchandise that should be discounted, (unlike NY cough cough) so we went to the proshop around 5:30 for a 7pm game and then found that there is actually another entrance To TD garden just beyond the proshop that allowed regular patrons to enter 1.25 hours early. The pro shop was open after the game as well, and even if you miss it before the game, it was also open after the game to, (although a lot more crowded). They offered my daughter face painting for several different bruins designs, of which she partook, (for free). She got a bruins symbol on one cheek with hockey sticks and pucks on the other. They also gave her a collectible bruins model plane for answering a trivia question correctly, (that I had to answer). I was surprised at how difficult the questions were, but nonetheless she got to choose from an array of items including a TD garden keychain, bracelet, and other trinkets a young child would love. I appreciated this gesture by the Bruins as I appreciated it was free and I didn’t even have to fill out a questionnaire or anything for it! The 2 biggest reasons I dropped a star for was for the comfortability of the seats and the blocked view of the near goal with people prematurely standing or leaning forward in their seats. We were section 309, row 13, seats 16 and 17. There was a Karen siting in front of us that leaned all the way forward in her seat to where I couldn’t see anything! I didn’t pay to watch the game from the Jumbotron tv! They had a lot of variety in terms of food choices, which was also highly appreciated! We ended up getting the pizza, (which was highly delicious) and a souvenir popcorn bucket. I didn’t find the prices for any of the food options bad either. The only thing I was annoyed by was that we kept being pressed to leave tips by the machine and workers. Do you not pay your people enough money to do their job to begin with? They’re not servers, they’re basically glorified fast food workers. This is the only hockey arena I’ve been to that makes patrons feel like they have to tip, and I didn’t appreciate it at all. Great game experience though overall, and I would return.

    Great place for Hockey!
    Fantastic place to watch hockey. Bruins fans are loud and generally fun. The food in the Boston Garden Society was excellent. Sal's Pizza was one of the best slices of pizza I have had in recent memory.

Went to a concert here on Nov 7.
17,000 + people in attendance and I must say there was zero ventilation. For a concert of this magnitude , that was very negligent.It was super hot and muggy. Ended up sick 2 days later.

We had a great time in Boston. We went on a tour of TD Garden and it was really good. We also went on a tour of Fenway Park and it was really good. If you are a sports fan you have to go to both of them

TD Garden tour with Henry as the guide, he was awesome! Henry shared great stories and history on the old Boston Garden, the TD Garden, players past and present; and he had a great sense of humor!

Visited the venue twice this week for sporting events. Staff are friendly and helpful, food is a little pricey along with the beer, but it is what it is..
