If the extrordinary food and drinks at the Shark Tank wasn't enough, I have supplied a list of great places to eat and drink before or after a Sharks game. One suggestion for any place you go to: GET THERE EARLY! Places around HP Pavilion tend to be very busy at least 2 hours before a game.

1. Henry's Hi-Life 301 W. St. John Street
San Jose, CA
(408) 295-5414
Great place for steaks, ribs, or chicken. Awesome hangout before games. Players will come after the game! Closest place from arena. About 3 blocks from the corner of Autumn and St. John.
2. The Grill at HP Pavilion 525 W. Santa Clara Street
San Jose, CA
(408) 999-6800
"Contemporary American" menu, infusing cooking techniques from cultures throughout the world. Resturant opens approximately 2 hours before games, mainly to season ticket holders.
3. Tied House 65 N San Pedro Street
San Jose, CA
(408) 295-2739
California style cuisine on a decent budget. The beers are highly recommended and a miniture location is found inside the Shark Tank. A favorite among fans.
4. Britannia Arms 173 W. Santa Clara Street
San Jose, CA
(408) 278-1400
This British/American pub & resturant serves food from both sides of the Atlantic. Mainly a great place to hang out before and after games. Many players make this the unofficial hang out post game. Resturant is partly owned by former Sharks great, Owen Nolan.
5. Peggy Sue's 29 N San Pedro Street
San Jose, CA
(408) 298-6750
Downtown San Jose's exclusive 50's style diner. Most likely the best burgers, shakes, fries in the area. Nostalgic Sharks items are scattered around the resturant. One of my favorites!
6. Old Spaghetti Factory 51 N. San Pedro Street
San Jose, CA
(408) 288-7488
Hands down the best pasta place near the Tank. Prices are very reasonable and portions are a very good size. Another one of my favorites!
