parking help

I'm looking for a lot with easy exit after the game. Looking to get on the 190 towards grand island/n.falls. We've parked near the arena before and it took forever to exit
thanks

Underground ramp. I always park here ... $8.00 out of the elements. Five min. walk to the arena.

Once i get back into my vehicle, it takes 10-12 mins to get out of the ramp and on the 190 or 33.

Works for me and i've been doing it for years.

Heading down again for the Sat game against your boys!

Staying at Adam's Mark this time - any recommendations for good eats around there? Was thinking 716 but do you have to reserve or just show up real early (4pm)? Went to Black Squirrel last time - any other good distilleries to recommend??

Cheers

I'd suggest you absolutely check out Lockhouse Distillery. It's within walking distance from the arena. There's a new restaurant in the casino right next door as well: The Western Door Bar & Grille. It's a high-end steakhouse.

If you're at the distillery, there are a couple of good bars to check out on the way to the arena. I'd recommend Buffalo Iron Works. They'll likely have 4-5 local beers on tap plus the other usuals.

And, yeah...I'd make reservation for 716 if you intend on eating dinner there. It's a madhouse a couple of hours before a hockey game.

Chefs, Pearl street brewery, 716, or Pizza Plant.

Check out the menus online. Plenty to choose from.

As far as 716 .., it's booked up solid by now i'm sure. You could show up at 4 ... and either wait for a table or eat at one of the 3 bars. Might be faster to eat at the bar.

Coming in for the Monday night game in early April, what's the best place for Wings within walking distance?

Thanks very much for the info.

Yeah, we were thinking of hitting Lockhouse first, then heading over to Iron Works for a bite. Do they take reservations at either place or do you just walk in?

Yeah I checked 716 and all they have are 2:45pm reservations Sat - all later tables are booked.

Where's the best place to go for wings after the game? Find Anchor too touristy, but heard good things about the Gate and Nine-Eleven.

Not sure about their hours though.

Nine eleven awesome. They sometimes have a long wait though. If that is the case you can head over to doc Sullivan's which is like a mile away. Both places are ten minutes from the arena.
