We went to the Fado a couple of times during our recent visit to Philadelphia and we really enjoyed it. The pub has a real Irish look and feel, the food is really good and they have a nice beer selection on tap. The staff is really nice and friendly as well so what else do you need? If you... More

We found this pub while wandering around near our hotel. The atmosphere was great and the waitress we had was great. She made good recommendations and was excellent in her service. The food was great and the exactly what we needed that evening.

I would definitely go back again. Lots of options on tap. I had fish and chips. Fish was enormous and tasty. Everyone was happy with the food and wait staff.

We found this pub by doing a google search and upon discovering it was only a few blocks from our hotel we were on our way. The pub has a few outdoor tables, but the inside is very nice for an Irish pub. Nice little corner tables and niches perfect for friends to gather. We were there for lunch with... More

So my husband and I found this place on line. We wanted great, authentic, Philly pub food. After a busy morning of touring the city, we were pretty hungry. Not knowing what to order that was "special", we asked our waiter John. He was dead on with everything he suggested. We don't like lamb but the chips with lamb and... More

We did the Komen 3 Day in Philly and on the last day we went into this place. I think it was about 10am and it was full of people watching soccer and drinking. I loved it. Later I went there with my wife when we were visiting Philly and she loved it too.

Nice place.... "authentic" created Irishness, but they do it right. Good service, they pull a nice pint, and the small plates of food we had were very well done.

Abounding with yuppies; a small but tasty late night menu; pricey drinks but likely the local going rate. Friendly bouncer and wait staff. Plenty of big screen TV's. We found a nice quiet corner where we could hear ourselves talk. Plenty of the 20's and 30's crowd here. Yummy buffalo wings and chicken fingers as well as wine.

Not much to say. Another Fado in another city. Smithwick's was good, the Harp a bit skanky (clean your hoses).
