Had to wait long for service and when it came, wasn't even up to par with McDonalds. Food is not bad but a bit overpriced.
Best Sports Bar in the Bay Area – Good time, good service, good food, bullride. Especially if you're a regular, it is a warm, happy place despite the large size.
great sports bar – Good times, good service, good fun! first night is a bullride must for anyone, and is the best pad for post Game Day!
BITCHY BLOND BARTENDERS – Wow what a shithole place. The bartenders suckass. I got the bitchiest blond bimbo for a waitress. She said that she needed to check all of my friends' ID's before I could order any drinks, when I had already showed her my ID.
My friends and I came in a big group, so I asked if she could go to the table to check the ID's and she said no, telling me that I was trying to be difficult. When I collected everyones ID's, she said that they needed to come up individually
They served our beer with plastic cups, NOT GLASSES. Not only that, they were plastic cups stolen from Gordon Biersch across the street.
Waitress said that we couldn't keep moving around because "ALL ASIANS LOOK THE SAME" and she couldn't keep track of who had showed their ID's. They only had 2 people serving alcohol for the whole place.
We ordered food and the food never came. 30 minutes later they made up some bullhit excuse like the kitchen was closed. IT WAS 7PM!
Basically the beer was shitt, the service was shitt, and GODAMN they are raceist.
I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN.
WORST BAR IN DOWNTOWN PALO ALTO – I signed up for an account specifically to write this review. I would give a negative rating if I could.
Going to this bar was probably one of the worst experiences in my life. The waitress we had was rude and unprofessional. Most of the people in my party were Asians. When asked to order drinks, the waitresses comment was "Can you people sit down so I can check IDs, you guys all look alike." I didn't find out about this until the next morning, but was flabbergasted at the outright RAClST comment. The bartenders at the place weren't any better. The guy working behind the bar gave us just as much attitude.
I've never written a bad review about any place. But felt compelled at least to warn other people that are considering going to this bar. DO NOT.
Great for watching College Football, Horrible for Customer Service – Atmosphere was good on Saturday afternoon with plenty of college football fans but dont count on the bartenders to add an extra bit of pleasure. Two bartenders in particular were not only disrespectful and unprofessional but did not fulfill a request with our meal. Later that night i told my friends about it and they have said their experience with the bartenders was exactly the same. Hopefully management reads these reviews and makes changes.
Extremly Rude Management – I rate this place so bad not because of the food or service but because of the manager named Vickie. She is a horrible person who treats her employees and customers very bad. My first time in Old Pro was last year when I came in and waited for drinks at the bar, after waiting for the blond manager named Vickie to finish flirting with a group of guys, 15 min passed and she finally helped me. The bar was not crowded, and she seemed to ignore her customers for numerous different males. I had some questions so I figured I would give it one more shot, on my way out I asked her about group parties and how they worked and she replied so rudly and with such a look of disgust that I walked out. The other waitresses were very helpful and I even heard her yelling at one. I tried to go back about one month ago because I liked the food, when I came in for my second time I saw Vickie spray down two inocent girls who were customers and sitting at the bar. She sprayed them with the water house and cause a huge comotion and started a fight with the girls. I'm not sure what kind of management lets her run that place, but I def DO NOT recomend going here unless your ready for extreme rudeness.
AVOID THIS SWEAT SHOP – This place is terrible. I heard that they get there meat from Costco and charge us double, Vickie is mean and rude. They dont even pay there employes that they should. I know they are being sued by their employes' because they dont pay overtime..Nice TV's.. Pay your emplyes..
So disappointed ... – We were actually looking for a fun place, not too stiff, and have been pointed to this Sports Bar.
They definitely have nice screens and a lot of Sports going on, but our service was beyond terrible. The waiter was unfriendly, didn't check on us at all and at the end he even overcharged the credit card. I've never experienced anything like that. Maybe it was because we were a party of 6 and gratuity has been added automatically, so he thought he doesn't have to provide service.
Now to the food ... The food was ok, the meat actually not too bad, but not spiced at all.
All in all I won't come back. Big disappointment.
Hands down, THE Best REAL Sports Bar in the Bay Area. The one on Ramona St is the great if you want rowdy Sportsbar atmostphere. Go to the El Camino if you want the Cheers like atmosphere. The food is great, the beer can be served in a tall tall tube with a despenser so your group can pour their own beer on tap. LOTs and LOTS of Plasma TVs & there's a that Cow riding machine that i've never seen in the bay area anywhere else but on TV. Pool Tables too. Seat yourself, there's menu's thrown everwhere... and you share tables with other patrons who'll be watching the game too. It's like VIP rooms at the stadium.
