    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.

    Tah Dah Garden!
    We love taking the train to TD Garden to see the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins. It's easy, inexpensive, and if we want to stay overnight there is a very convenient Citizen M in the same block. Comfortable seats, good views, and the usual food and sports gear vendors. They have their own parking garage. I also saw a concert there once.

    Great Concert Venue
    We attended a concert at TD Garden and found it to be a great experience. The concert was a sold out performance with a large crowd. So many of the things that are a hassle at some venues were no problem at TD Garden. It was very easy to get in and out of the venue. There were very few lines for bathrooms or concessions. The ushers were friendly and helpful instead of being heavy-handed. The seating is very good and nightlines are great throughout. They hold a lot of concerts at this arena, and they really have their act together.

    Very convenient to get to.
    I enjoy watching sports so why not visit the TD Garden while in Boston. I love that it is so convenient getting here via North Station. There are multiple entrances into the arena and getting through security is fairly quick. They do have a clear bag policy to abide by. There are plenty choices of food and kiosks as you walk through the arena. I bought water and it's been a while since I've bought a bottle of water during a basketball game, but they do take the caps away. I used a napkin to "seal" my water bottle. I sat in the Loge section and the seats are pretty close to each other. So close you will be touching your neighbors knee. The bathrooms were clean and the line wasn't too bad during peak bathroom breaks (ie halftime).

    A classic venue
    Best entertainment venue in eastern USA. We were there for a Celtics game and it was awesome. The arena is clean, historic and loud. The service is also great but expect to pay HIGH prices for food and beer.

    Boston Hockey at TD Garden
    Attend last game of Bruin's 100th Season at TD Garden. Caught train from Dedham and walked the 3/4 mile along the greenway from the train station to TD Garden. All the local restaurants and bars had good vibes. Walked greenway back to station, totally safe after Bruins game ended at 10PM. Pros: Clean, polite staff, wide food selection, well ventilated, clear sound system, good vibes

The food is below average. All premade sauses and a lot of food comes out cold. They use Sysco as a distributor. They are low end. All their products are frozen.
Very disappointed . Find another place to eat. Legends hype is not worth it.

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.
