Great TV monitors all over. Good service and good. Had a turkey melt club and a regular turkey club both of which were delicious. Fair prices.

Drove by on Thursday night around 11:00 pm and people were waiting outside. Actually went on a Friday night around 6:30. We left around 10:00 pm and it was standing room only and this place is huge! Sports pennants, sports illustrated covers and such cover every square inch of this place. You'll get very generous portions if you order their... More

Very underwhelming food but fun college atmosphere. Wings were doughy salad completely uninspired. Won't be returning.

My last resort for some late food at night (arriving from Asia) was The Old Pro, sports bar with a great atmosphere and a reasonable bite. I had a pepperoni piza and it was tasty enough, glad of red wine and some chats around the bar. Not bad at 1am ...

Called in to catch warriors pre season game. For me, had everything a sports bar should. Lots of big screens, they were happy to set up a tv for me, long bar, good beer choice, plenty of staff. Really enjoyed it. Food was ok, did the job. Just enough vegetarian choices. Prices mid-high for drinks.

Fun night watching Stanford beat down the Fighting Irish & OSU beat Wisconsin. The Bay Area Buckeye Booster club meets here and along with the Stanford win made for a great crowd atmosphere. Organized watching set-up as all TVs are posted for pending games and times. Service was efficient and attentive. Good bar food and strong drinks!!

We came here for lunch and drinks before going to a football game and it was a great atmosphere! Lots of tvs showing all of the games and great staff! The pitchers of beer seemed to be priced a bit high, but the pizza we had was great! Would recommend this place!

A few weeks ago, we traveled to Palo Alto for a football game that started at 5:00PM. Since we had most of the day free and there were LOTS of football games on tv, we decided to go to the Old Pro to watch the games. It is a festive place with LOTS of televisions showing several different games at... More

This review is for the bar and cocktails. Worth the 10 bucks you pay at the door. They give you a ticket and you have to order minimum of 10 bucks food or drink once inside. With the ticket you scored! Drinks are fairly priced. The Samoan guy at the door was cool and funny. The place definitely rocks with... More

Martin and Noa were the best security guards I've ever met. They were they kindest. Extra points to them. 💜 If I come here I would come to your bar again thanks to them
