    The Patio has the best service and staff of any bar in Palo Alto or Mountain View. They are always friendly even when very busy. For large parties, they are happy to reserve tables for you... Just ask

    Love the outdoor area in back as a venue, but goddamn the service is slooow. Zero rhyme or reason to when a server finally gets to helping you.

    Chicken tenders were good, but the bartender didn't know how to pour a Guinness or make a good old fashioned

    Tip is for dance club hours. Top 40s music is fun. Hella crowded sausage fest full of grabby rude boys who don't ask nicely but ego trip if you wanna feel like you still "got it".

    Sliders come with too much aioli but are otherwise great. Fresh bread as well.

    Security likes to flash lights and herd you, pushing you around during later hours.

    DJs here are PAINFULLY boring. Their laptop has a set, and that's what will play. Don't bothering requesting anything, just go down the street.

    Patio at Rudy's is commonly known as "Prudy's": for those who are too prude to go to Rudy's.

    They close too early, music ok. Not great. But basically the only place in Palo Alto.
