We actually went for Dinner but caught the end of the happy hour specials. We tried a little bit of everything for $5 a plate. This made for a filling and not too expensive meal. The Boxties were great with cheese and as part of a Quesada dish. They would have also made a great desert with a simple cinnamon... More

We love this Irish Bar. Most of the bartenders and staff are Irish. The beer selections on tap are a great variety. It also a great place to watch sporting events. It doesn't matter if its the middle of the day or late at night. They even open early for soccer matches in other time zones.

We hosted our son's surprise 30th here a wk ago....a favorite pub of his for soccer! We had about 75 people for brunch on a Sunday morning. Right from the start with the booking to the end of the party...Molly is the event coordinator and did an impeccable job organizing the party from the food choices to the bar menu... More

The nooks and seating make you feel you're in Ireland or England. You can lose time in here. Never a bad meal and service very quick If you want a homemade style burger then this is the place. This is not a Five Guys or Shake Shack burger. This was much larger...made with feeling.

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
