    Бар доя тех кому нужно убить время

    This is an awesome dive. Nuts on the floor type place. However, don't even go into a men's stall if you have to piss. Just wait for a urinal. Trust me.

    If Point 83 had a Palo Alto branch, this place would be frequented by them.

    Diveish, but sadly not in an everyone there is missing at least 5 teeth and that dude's got a wooden leg and you're starting to wonder if they're pirates way. Joke signs, college/tech people, etc.

    Be sure to look up and peruse the ceiling gallery. Best use of ugly acoustical ceiling tiles ever!

    Great for after work. Pitchers of beer, taqueria with decent Mexican food. Pool tables, lively atmosphere, generally good music. $3 margaritas at lunch.

    An excellent dive in bar. This is probably the only place in the US where you get to throw peanut shells around. There are a couple of pool tables that are always occupied and a Foosball table too.

    If you truly want to sense what it means by people saying that the owner TONY is an ASSHOLE just go there and test it for yourself. He looks like a pig, talks like a pig and acts like a pig!!!

    Want to play pool? Write your name on the board for challenge tables 1 & 2 (closest to the bar). Throwing down quarters during a game is rude! Or rent a table and play doubles with your friends.

    If you like beer and peanuts, this is the place for you. Don't forget to throw your peanut shells on the ground.

    Don't miss the Manhattan on the rocks with Early Times, and one of the several beers on tap.

    If being nice to a bartender matters anywhere it does so here.

    Do not order an irish coffee or a slippery nipple, stick to basics

    Solid prices. Best dive bar around Palo Alto. Not all the waitresses are so nice. The unlimited peanuts is a cool element

    Samuel Rosenblatt · February 7, 2012
  • Ron v.

    The options for places with peanut shells scattered on the floor are limited around Page Mill, but you can satisfy that need here. Not exactly cheap, but it's acceptable for Palo Alto.

  • Frank R.

    What is there to say…it's Antonio's Nut House. They serve beer & bad food in a lame atmosphere. Many better dives to choose from on the peninsula (Zott's, Dutch Goose, etc). (1 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    It's one of the more down-to-earth bars in Palo Alto with a wide choice of beers. Don't be surprised when the peanut shells are thrown to the ground.

    Keep your drinks off the damn pool tables or else someone will prolly use a cue stick to move it for you.

    I believe visa would not be happy to hear the nut house upcharges for credit. Prob a violation of the ts and cs.

    Hide a dollar in the nut bucket and watch how people react (and most don't take it)
