I love baseball, but must say that I was disappointed with RFK stadium. We thought we had great seats, in the second section back from the field on the third base side. We were actually underneath an overhang, and couldn't see the sky at all - we felt like we were in a closed arena. The concession stands were fine (overpriced like all major sporting events), but no food that was different or exciting. We did have an enjoyable evening with the family and friends, but have found AAA ballparks that we enjoyed more than this one and don't have any strong desire to go back. If it's the atmosphere you are looking for, make the drive from DC to Baltimore because Camden Yards is where it's at.

I've been to this place twice and both times, I was dissatisfied, regardless of how the Nats did.

I waited in line for food for 3 innings. That was completly unacceptable. The place could be cleaner. The prices for the food were more then you could expect to pay for waiting in line so long.

PROS: its temporary, great crowd
CONS: unclean, lines too long,

Great place to head out after work if you get tired with all the interns at the happy hours. You can sit back with a beer and watch the Nats battle their way to the top.

PROS: Near the metrp
CONS: can get crowded on the commute

RFK is a place for old timers. This is where the Senators used to play. This is where the Superbowl Redskins used to play. The Senators are now the Texas Rangers, and the Redskins are now in Landover, Marland. The seats are dirty,
the food is overpriced and the Nationals will be moving soon, so the only thing left here are the memories. It's still worth coming here just for that.

PROS: Lousy food
CONS: Great memories

Nothing terribly wrong with RFK, but you can definitely tell that it's an aging stadium. Concessions are set up poorly, creating unnecessarily long lines and clogging most of the major passages. If you don't mind being tussled about a bit, RFK's a great place to spend an afternoon.

I went to a Washington Nationals game in Washington D. C. this past May. The game was fine. Even the old RFJ Stadium was cool. What needed revamping was the staff, the vendors and the consessions. On the outside of the stadium are numerous "boot leggers" which is to be expected. However, amongst the "boot leggers" was the official Nationals shop. The problem with this is there was nothing distinguishing them from the others. I only found them because I happened to inquire about the merchandise on their card table. Later in the stadium, after asking 5 stadium employees, I find that there was no main store on the premises. There are small satallite booths throughout the stadium with different merchandise at each one. One would have to walk all through out the entire stadium to see everything offered.
During the game I went to the concessions. They have a pretty basic selection. If you want specialty items like garlic fries fugetaboutit.
The most offensive aspect though was the employees. Their ignorance with the team store is inexcusable. I had to ask litterally 5 people to get a straight answer on the merchandise. Two of these people were "guest relations" employees! Lastly, when I walked up to one of the many merchandise booths, the employee behind the counter slams the cover shut right in my face!! He saw me coming and when I was no more than 4 feet away without a word he closes the cover.
Other than my dealings with the sub-human employees the game was enjoyable. Bottom line is Nationals get 5 stars. Stadium employees get 0.
