I signed up for an account specifically to write this review. I would give a negative rating if I could.
Going to this bar was probably one of the worst experiences in my life. The waitress we had was rude and unprofessional. Most of the people in my party were Asians. When asked to order drinks, the waitresses comment was ""Can you people sit down so I can check IDs, you guys all look alike."" I didn't find out about this until the next morning, but was flabbergasted at the outright RAClST comment. The bartenders at the place weren't any better. The guy working behind the bar gave us just as much attitude.
I've never written a bad review about any place. But felt compelled at least to warn other people that are considering going to this bar. DO NOT.

Atmosphere was good on Saturday afternoon with plenty of college football fans but dont count on the bartenders to add an extra bit of pleasure. Two bartenders in particular were not only disrespectful and unprofessional but did not fulfill a request with our meal. Later that night i told my friends about it and they have said their experience with the bartenders was exactly the same. Hopefully management reads these reviews and makes changes.

I rate this place so bad not because of the food or service but because of the manager named Vickie. She is a horrible person who treats her employees and customers very bad. My first time in Old Pro was last year when I came in and waited for drinks at the bar, after waiting for the blond manager named Vickie to finish flirting with a group of guys, 15 min passed and she finally helped me. The bar was not crowded, and she seemed to ignore her customers for numerous different males. I had some questions so I figured I would give it one more shot, on my way out I asked her about group parties and how they worked and she replied so rudly and with such a look of disgust that I walked out. The other waitresses were very helpful and I even heard her yelling at one. I tried to go back about one month ago because I liked the food, when I came in for my second time I saw Vickie spray down two inocent girls who were customers and sitting at the bar. She sprayed them with the water house and cause a huge comotion and started a fight with the girls. I'm not sure what kind of management lets her run that place, but I def DO NOT recomend going here unless your ready for extreme rudeness.

We were actually looking for a fun place, not too stiff, and have been pointed to this Sports Bar.
They definitely have nice screens and a lot of Sports going on, but our service was beyond terrible. The waiter was unfriendly, didn't check on us at all and at the end he even overcharged the credit card. I've never experienced anything like that. Maybe it was because we were a party of 6 and gratuity has been added automatically, so he thought he doesn't have to provide service.
Now to the food ... The food was ok, the meat actually not too bad, but not spiced at all.
All in all I won't come back. Big disappointment.

Hands down, THE Best REAL Sports Bar in the Bay Area. The one on Ramona St is the great if you want rowdy Sportsbar atmostphere. Go to the El Camino if you want the Cheers like atmosphere. The food is great, the beer can be served in a tall tall tube with a despenser so your group can pour their own beer on tap. LOTs and LOTS of Plasma TVs & there's a that Cow riding machine that i've never seen in the bay area anywhere else but on TV. Pool Tables too. Seat yourself, there's menu's thrown everwhere... and you share tables with other patrons who'll be watching the game too. It's like VIP rooms at the stadium.

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"".

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.
