I love coming here to see a San Jose Sharks game. It's an exciting, clean, friendly stadium. Good food all away through great food in the restaurants. Will usually come early and eat downstairs. You need to make a reservation on their phone line and they call you back. I would say the only downfall here is the parking you... More

I love coming to the "Tank" to watch the Sharks, concerts and recreational hockey. In general the staff are thoughtful, helpful and cheerful. I must however complain about the Club level vendor. I mostly have issues with the company that organizes and runs the carving area. How do you run out of bread, pickles and onions by the end of... More

Best arena in the area. Easy access. Light rail station walking distance. I have been there for San Jose Sharks games, concerts, rodeo. Seating is very comfortable. Not many obstructed views.

Great arena for Sharks games and even better for Sharks playoffs. Average arena for concerts as the sound tends to be bass heavy, boomy, and usually too loud. Reasonable arena for other events.

I came from Arizona to experience a UFC fight at this location and I left impressed. This is by far one of the best arenas I have ever been too with the seating and the prices. I have been to other arenas in the country and none match up the experience I had here.

Entry was fairly quick and easy. Seating was great for a Sharks game. Seats were padded and comfortable in the section we were in (right behind visiting team bench). Not much choice for beer and the food wasn't good.

I went here when the Wings were doing the western swing and out of the 3 arenas in Cali that I went to I loved this one. It is very nice inside and they are a great variety of food as well. The seats are amazing and have a lot of cushion. I have been to a lot of arena's... More

I've been going to the present SAP Center since it was born as the San Jose Arena then evolved into HP Pavilion. To Sharks hockey fans, it's "The Tank" and nothing else. Simply said, this is an outstanding venue. There are few bad seats and they are always indicated as such when you purchase a ticket (obstructed view, etc.). The... More
