    Watching a game in the restaurant at Prudential Center is a great experience. We enjoyed the food and had a nice view in our padded seats during the game.

    Parking was a ripoff, but big spaces and it was nice to know my car was safe. The Prudential Center is beautiful and the views of downtown Newark from the center emphasize the beauty of Newark.

    Pretty solid venue with over the top prices. The rush concert I saw here from their R40 tour was one of the best shows I've ever seen, made possible by the Pru center.

    Love this place. The ushers/vendors are super friendly and the NJ Devils murals and banners are great. I grew up in NJ, so I love the high school hockey jerseys hanging around The Rock

    Great place to see hockey. Prices are what to be expected, but at least you can get some faux-craft beer at $9+ a pint. Skip the $9+ Bud. Go Devil's!

    Do you know that just a few blocks away is one of the best museums in the Country? The Newark Museum is a must see. It houses the largest Tibetan art collection in the world outside of Tibet.

    Try the Mucho Nachos but ask for only half a scoop of salsa so it isnt so messy. Also make sure you pick up a red pitchfork fork - it makes it much easier to eat. Finally don't forget NAPKINS!

    If you're a Rangers fan just get tickets here when they come around. So much cheaper than Madison Square Garden and there's basically more Rangers fans in the arena than Devils fans!

    Skip the concession stands with their overpriced domestic beers, and look for standalone beer carts which offer a more eclectic set of beer, both craft and import options on draft.
