Conundrum – The Old Pro is a bit of a conundrum. There are so few old bars in Palo Alto that I should like it, but the beer selection is sub-par - it's a rolling rock and bud kind of joint. Even the selection of sports TVs - no flat panel glory! Just look at the "business description" - they spell "dungeness" wrong. I almost wish they just stuck to what they do well, instead of trying to gussy up, but I like a little gussying. It's worth a trip - but don't expect to be "where the action is".
I love this place – The Old Pro is the place to go where you want to bring a group of friends, have a good time, and be where the action is. I've brought my girlfriend there and she even likes it! The food is great and the service is friendly, the only problem is that when it is busy, it's so loud you have to go on the patio to talk.
Good luck getting served – service is terrible and food is significantly OVER rated. Beer has been flat about 80% of the times Ive been there. Only good thing is tv and sunday ticket.
Editorial Review – Sports bar and grill puts an upscale spin on pub grub with dishes like teriyaki steak bites, baby back ribs and Dungenness crab cakes
a den away from home – seems like a great place, although it wasn't too corwded last time i went. it seems that they're wasting a lot of space in the back as storage. The beers were relatively timely, we were checked upon a few times throughout our stay, and the atmosphere was quite friendly. I'd stay away from the "Old Pro Lager" i think it might be a generic keg similar to busch or the beast. also, shame on them for having 3 types of wings and not one of them buffalo wings. those are the only gripes, otherwise, a real fun joint. oh, and last call was at 8.45pm? didn't understand that one bit.
Great Sport Atmosphere – When I walked into this place for the first time, I was in awe of all the old sports paraphenalia. Great place to watch sports and a VERY attentive waitress who works her tail off.
great service – I've been to the Pro regularly for a while now and really appreciate the consistent high quality of service we get there (except the rare occasion when the regular wait staff are not on duty). Wings are great and the rest of the food is good. Don't order the hot dog pizza.
here's a great bar – I went here for my first time. Great pictures everywhere. Service was friendly, place was packed. The burgers are awesome. Definitely will be back to give those Irish a hard time!
"Making your way in the world today
Takes everything you've got;
Taking a break from all your worries
Sure would help a lot
Wouldn't you like to get away ?
Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came;
You want to be where you can see,
Our troubles are all the same;
You want to be where everybody
knows your name."
Cheers to you Old Pro
Happy Holidays to the best Sports Bar
in America !!
best sports bar in town – The Old Pro is the best place in PA to watch sports and hang out. I usually drop in a couple of times a week for lunch or dinner and to catch a game. The quality of food and service have always been outstanding. The bartenders are very personable and make you feel right at home. It can get a little crazy during college football season, but thats because everyone knows its the best place to see almost any game being played across the country.
