While i've lived in San Jose three times now, until recently I had never visited the HP Pavilion. Fleetwood Mac performed here back in November, and I attended. I was amazed at how good the sound and acoustics were. Often times in a cavernous venue like this, it can be very bad. I'd definitely attend a concert there again.

We were in town and attended a Sharks game. This arena was very nice, but we thought it felt small for an NHL arena. We were able to find decent parking not far from the arena, too. There were several food options inside. We didn't try anything, so I cannot comment on that.

A good venue for sharks games and concerts. Park in the back- park away from the door near the exit- easy to get out to the freeway!

Home of the San Jose Sharks hockey! Good food and good fun! Home of the best hockey fans and not a bad seat in the house.

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.
