I thought the drinks were great (bloody mary was very hot!), the seating (high chairs, long tables) conducive to group events, and the noise level HIGH. Open windows in front made it cooler than most bars, even full to people

Very happy, very noisy, pizza was not really a thin crust, OK beers, a bit pricey. It's a good place to go - if you like that type of atmosphere.

If you're looking for a place to watch a big game or any televised sporting event, The Old Pro is the only "real sports bar in Palo Alto. Food is hit and miss. Its a bar not a restaurant. I highly recommend

Plenty of big screen TV's, lots of atmosphere and pretty good bar food make this a pretty good place to watch a sporting event
