U.S. Cellular Field gets high marks for food, atmosphere and its fans. The neighborhood, access to the park and return on investment? Well, not so good.

Stadium Journey, which publishes reviews of pro and college sports stadiums, recently posted a revised review of the White Sox’ ballpark. It’s a thorough and thoughtful look.

Paul Swaney, Stadium Journey co-founder, awards one to five stars in various categories for sports venues. The Cell gets five stars for food and beverage and four for atmosphere and fans. The other categories get middle-of-the road three stars.

“There’s a bit of an edge at U.S. Cellular Field, the home of the Chicago White Sox, that is difficult to explain without the use of some clich like “blue-collar,” Swaney writes. “Nothing that I am able to think of adequately describes the feeling inside a White Sox game, so I’ll just leave it there, with an edge.”

Swaney’s knock on the park is the upper bowl, which he says drastically drops off experience-wise from the main level.

Here is the link to the U.S. Cellular review. It’s worth a look.
