    The Old Pro is a great place to meet up with friends and watch sports. Old Pro is a very lively place in Downtown Palo Alto.

    You want the wings! Crispy yumminess! Great atmosphere, wonderful service. We go here when we're visiting the Bay Area for the Stanford game against the Ducks. Been twice, we'll see you again!

    Tons of seating and great beer selection.

    Great spot to grab a beer and happy hour specials.

    Sliders and hamburgers, good American fare with garlic tots, a great place to watch sports events

  • Kirk H.

    I've been here many, many times and I'm always impressed with how good the food is for a sports bar. The space is huge and there are TVs everywhere.

    Kirk Herlitz · April 22, 2015
  • Mariianne C.

    Where to go for World Cup and baseball big sport events in general. Fun!

    Mariianne Crary · February 19, 2015

    A multitude of TVs.. Great sight lines and good selection of beer!

    Ride the bull. That's all.

    Decent food for a sports bar. The pulled pork sandwich is a bit light on meat but tasty

    Every time I come here my soda is flat and they act so confused about it. Every single time.

    Jane Allen · October 27, 2014
  • Andy S.

    Ride the bull! And entertain us!

    Andy Steinmetz · September 4, 2014
  • Joseph K.

    Funny: The $7 1lb of wings special is pricier per lb than just getting the 2 lb order on the regular menu ($13).

    Joseph Kristoffer · August 23, 2014
  • Rob O.

    Great people watching on a Friday night...

    Rob Owen · August 19, 2014

    Good for large groups but otherwise it kinda sucks. Pub food and beer. Mechanical bull is interesting.

    Greg Schechter · August 17, 2014
  • Alisha O.

    Wine on tap? It wasn't bad...

    Alisha Outridge · August 9, 2014
  • Brian A.

    One of my favorite places to watch a sporting event. On the pricier side of food but above average quality. Beer towers and a great crowd for big events make this place a go-to for myself

    Garlic tots ftw. Get them.

    Stephany · April 13, 2014
  • Leonardo D.

    Delicious lobster tacos from the happy hour menu. The sweet potato fries are always on point here.

    It is really packed on weekends

    Come from a foreign country that plays hockey and want to watch playoff hockey? This is one of the few places in the Bay that has all the games. Only thing missing are Canadian beers.

    Make sure to be nice to the guy/girl running the mechanical bull. It makes all the difference.

    The people here are boring!!

    Locals don't ride the Bull

    Lamb sliders are pretty great! Especially with the garlic herb tots.

    Cant go wrong with the Nachos!

    Budweiser and Wings. Enough Said.

    If you really like tater tots-order real ones and don't waste your time with sweet potato tots.

    ask for the wings with half bbq sauce and half buffalo sauce

    Danny Conway · November 16, 2011
  • Stephany

    Don't get the tomato soup. It tastes like pepperoni pizza sauce. Blech!

    Stephany · November 7, 2011

    Pulled pork sliders - very good.

    I've yet to see anyone ride that bull.

    Can't beat their happy hour prices on beer. $6 pitchers 11am-6pm weekdays.
