Our first visit to The Hi Life but I’d make the 1 hour drive to eat here again. You walk into the bar area and grab a red tag with a number on it. One of the Hostess calls your number and takes your order...More

All the reviews are on spot. You have to get there early as it was jammed. Their system is quite effective. You get a red ticket, they call you and you order. You wait for your table and then get called. Now it is a...More

We have eaten here often and it never disappoints. Food is consistently great, which isn’t always the case at other places. If you are in town, you can see a piece of local history and have some great BBQ.

Always have a good experience when we have dinner at this place. Price is worth the food. Service is always good. It only takes a while to get seated because it's always busy especially game day or any event in SAP center.

Was at Henry’s Hi-Life for a weekday lunch. The spare ribs were mediocre. The price was quite reasonable --$13.50 for spare ribs, salad, and baked potato. I liked the salad and baked potato. Henrys has a diverse menu. I suspect other lunch or dinner choices...More

Do not miss having a meal here while in San Jose. This place has survived floods, recessions, earthquakes, etc. A lot of history in these walls. Order the filet with a side of mushrooms. It never disappoints.

Entering the restaurant, you find yourself in a saloon-like bar where a bartender assists you with the wide assortment of IPAs and lager beers. At the wall that displays the menu for the restaurant, you have to draw a number and give your order to...More

Not got small groups. I believe the minimum for reservations is 6 but it might be 8.

There is plenty of street parking if there ISN'T a game/event at the nearby SAP Arena, home of the San Jose Sharks hockey team. You might want to call ahead and check.
