We just lucked out finding this. Bridget found us a great table and in no time we were tucked into our favorite brews - very good selection - and not long after hearty vittles - a couple of meat loafs, a shepherd's pie among other choices. Thus fortified we could continue on to a gallery opening and other venues.

Attended the Phllly Pops afternoon Christmas Concert yesterday. We had planned to find a nice restaurant in the area prior to the concert but we arrived into Philly later than expected. I asked at the Kimmel where we could get a quick bite and it was suggested that we head down 15th Street where there were various options. I had... More

I have been to many pubs and this pub is by far the best one! Irish beer, great staff and the best pub food ever. The staff was very wonderful about me changing their menu to fit my craving. The ruben boxty is by far the best! very good I will tell everyone about it!

Great food, friendly staff and a great place to get a pint of Guinness. Not far from the Holiday Inn Express Midtown

Was recommended fado as the best "Irish" bar in Philly so tried it out. As a big wings fan I tried them with a Heineken and it was an excellent combo. The lady serving was lovely and very welcoming. Met up with colleagues who had also heard it was the place to go to when in Philly. Great atmosphere, very... More

We went to this pub with our daughter and son-in-law on a recent trip to Philadelphia. We stayed at a bed and breakfast on Pine Street so it was a pleasant walk to this pub ( recommended by staff at the bed and breakfast ). We arrived at 6:50 PM and the server immediately reminded us that the happy hour... More

Authentic look and feel of Irish Pub - really gets cooking around 9 pm. The food was generally good, the beer was very fresh and lots of variety, and service was outstanding. Really a wonderful experience and reasonably priced

Stopped by for beverages and dinner prior to a Neil Young concert at the Academy of Music, around the corner. Pub was crowded, but they found us a table about to leave, got us beverages, and our server Chris took our orders, made recommendations (fish & chips), got us our food quickly. I had shepard's pie, and it was savory... More

Fado has great bar food for great prices, along with nice happy hour specials. You can find yummy Irish fare here too, but overall the food in general is great. Their beer and drink specials are also reasonable and anyone can find something they like. If you're out on the town for the nightlife, Fado really picks up - they... More

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
