Good venue, good views from upper deck

One of the better sports venues I've visited, well-maintained and easy to get in and out of. Even the acoustics are better than many other venues I've visited.

As a Bruins fan I travel around to see them play in different venues - the SAP Center was beautiful! Parking was good and inexpensive. Food option good and not too badly priced.

I visitted SAP Center to watch, Sharks - Panthers, a great game in great surroundings. I was so fortunate to be invited to a sky box, which was amazing. Even though you are placed high in the stands, you can easily follow the game and also from the screens in the skybox, as well as from the balcony live. You... More

Sharks fan or not, this is one of the easiest venues to get in and out of. A lot of parking options around the arena help a lot too. Always love coming here!

OK place to watch a concert, but there are some real shortcomings. First, if an emergency exit would ever be needed, quick access out is a problem. Railings preclude exit from one end. Second, the food offerings leave a lot to be desired. We have been to multiple major concerts in the evenings. Most of the available restaurants in the... More

Usually go with my adult children 10-12 times a year to see the Sharks hockey games and 1-2 times for other events. Now they have metal detectors up to scan you. Women don't bring a large purse or otherwise you have to go to separate lines. A small evening type purse will allow you to go through the middle section,... More
