Times Union Center Jacksonville Reviews
Times Union Center Jacksonville reviews place the center as being a clean, modern venue for theatrical plays and other shows with a friendly atmosphere. The program content was said to be professional and tasteful and that it was an all-around pleasant experience.
A family found their experience to be awesome, saying it was their daughter’s first concert experience and she thoroughly enjoyed it. The center staff was lauded as being very friendly and helpful. Other reviewers thoroughly enjoyed their concert experience at the Times Union Center Jacksonville. One did say the beers were a little expensive at $8 but that food and non-alcoholic beverages were priced at a more reasonable $4. However, others did say at $4, even those prices were steep as you had to pay that for a bottle of water. Some visitors said the food selection was rather limited with items like cinnamon pecan nuts and pretzels, but that they were delicious.
Visitors to the center found the acoustics to be very good and the climate temperature to be comfortable, not freezing cold like so many other theaters. Seats are reportedly very comfortable, although some reviewers suggested that cup holders would be useful, as the first person coming out of the row knocked over a woman’s drink with their foot, soaking the carpet.
Several people noted that it was very convenient to be dropped off and collected at the theater, rather than driving around looking for parking.
