Local award-winning chef Michael Sympon has a restaurant on the main concourse near the Cavaliers Team Shop called The B Spot which is definitely worth a try. Items like the "Symon Says" Burger with fried bologna, American cheese, and coleslaw, or a Cleveland Bratwurst with coleslaw and hot sauce are signature items, as are the Lola Fries with rosemary. The B Spot also features premium and domestic beers.
Another local favorite is Quaker Steak & Lube for some of the best wings in the country. You'll find a full service restaurant near section 133 and smaller concessions stands at 107 and 207.
For the health-conscious fan, check out Just 4U near section 123 for gluten-free, veggie, and all natural organic food options.
For some of the best brew at The Q, stop by Twist-N-Stout (Sec 104) where not only can you get Magic Hat #9, Thirsty Dog, Guinness, and other premium beers, but also an amazing hand made pretzel which comes in a variety of flavors. Other premium beer can be found at a few Beer Here! locations. Check our stadium map for these and other concessions.

The Arena and Neighborhood:
Quicken Loans Arena (or simply "The Q") is across from the Indians' Progressive Field in Downtown Cleveland, and easily accessible from I-90, I-77, and I-71. It's a safe, active part of town. A lot of the surrounding bars and restaurants cater to the sports crowd, so finding something to do before or after a game should be simple. The Q is just a short walk away from Tower City (large shopping/entertainment center), Public Square (the historical central plaza), and about 1.5 miles south of Lake Erie and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum.
The Gateway East Parking Garage is between Progressive Field and the Quicken Loans Arena. You can enter off Huron Rd, Eagle Ave off Ontario, or Bolivar off 9th Street. The Gateway North Garage is also off Huron and Ontario. Since both have limited spaces, check out the plenty of other parking lots and garages nearby, many at half the price. Discount parking is available online from Cleveland's Central Parking. They give web discounts if you print it out a coupon ahead of time, so definitely check it out before you head out. For more info visit Cleveland Central Parking. (or you can click on valid parking links on our map which will take you to their site.)
You can take the bus or Rapid Transit Line to Tower City stop, and then take the RTA's enclosed Walkway to the park. The Walkway is only open on event days and it's a short 5-10 minutes away. You can park at any Park and Ride station for free. For more information: www.rideRTA.com.
Some establishments offer shuttles to and from the park. Check out Great Lakes Brewing Company on our exterior map. Just over the river, it's only $1 round trip when you eat or drink there pre-game. Another option is the Flat Iron Cafe (also found on our exterior map) - there's a $1 lot across the street and their shuttle is free with any purchase. After 6pm and on weekends you can find free street parking around both places.
In addition, be sure to check out our Fanzooloo Faves on the interior stadium map for more information and suggestions once inside the park.
