Every single seat in the house has a great sight line to the ice. It is the single greatest attribute of JLA, and its only one.
Beyond that, the seats are small, the place smells like piss, the beer sucks, parking is a pain and it is located exactly in the middle of nowhere in Detroit (although it is prime real estate on the river). So much so that the only "cool" bars around actually run shuttles back and forth all game days because you dont really want to walk from the Joe to these places at night, mostly because theyre far-ish, unless youre in a big crowd.
