I see on the app this lounge permits PP access now. I'm not sure if it's open on NYE however, I'll be sure to give it a whirl and see.

Just attended last night.

Priority Pass member who was flying on Southwest.
Checked bagged then headed to T2. Have TSA-precheck so going through Security at T2, then later at T1 was only a couple minutes each time. Even, general security was pretty light. (Monday 4-6 pm)
As stated, a 5-10 minute walk between Terminals.

Door was locked with a sign saying full. Attendant saw us, asked how many(3) and let us in. Did not ask for method of entry prior to checking us in. I had 2 kids, maybe assumed it would've been PP.
There were maybe 5 seats available at 4:30, but did gradually clear out when we left at 6:30.(Flight was delayed)

There were no hot foods. All self-serve.
Ciabatta rolls and various crackers.
Apples and oranges.
Deli Meats and cubed cheeses.
Spring lettuce mix with a few available traditional salad adds.
A pasta salad, kind of some anitpasto mix with no meat.
Hummus spread
Another pasta salad that might have been a tuna base or some type of white sauce(did not try)
Chips and salsa

Chocolate chip cookies

I was happy with the quality compared to the SJC lounge offerings a few days ago.
If I can make a sandwich on a nice roll with a pound of turkey, roast beef, salami I'm happy.

Definitely a heavily trafficked Lounge. Good place for cheap eats, but not quiet.

Flew out of T2 today and there was no line entering around 825a. There were still a good amount of seats left especially if you were okay with sitting at the bar. When I left at 840 there was a sign saying lounge is full even though I dont think they were really at capacity. There was a line with 8-10 people forming and no one was at the checkin desk.

The lounge is quite nice with great views but the only hot foods available were bagels and oatmeal. Im glad I didnt hit the rush but appreciate the crowd control for a more relaxing lounge experience.

Just stopped in yesterday morning and it was decent. The food offering was a bit odd with only boiled eggs and sliced deli ham for main dishes/protein. No scrambled eggs or breakfast meat (the ham was sandwich meat). Also, the pancakes, French toast, etc. are around the corner and hidden from the main food and very easy to miss.

Things could have been a bit off as the lounge was scheduled to close at 9AM for "maintenance." All and all it was decent and the staff was pleasant. As far as business level, I would say it was extremely busy for how busy the airport was overall. I'd estimate it at 90%+ of capacity as my wife and I had trouble finding two seats together and the airport was otherwise very empty. We were there on a Weds morning from about 830AM until they closed at 9AM.
