“Yummy pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We stopped in for a drink before a movie. Had great pub appetizers and reasonably priced drinks. Very authentic Irish decor from what I could tell. Would recommend.

“Perfect for a couple beers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We loved the live music and great Irish atmosphere at Fado! You can't beat Guinness and Strongbow on tap!

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Had a wonderful afternoon with some special people here. The salad was actually one of the best I have had anywhere! Loved the atmosphere, enjoyed the drinks, the waitress was quite Irish! A place worth returning to.

“Not bad but not as good as the one in Chicago...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

The service was good and the food was OK. I had higher expectations as the Fado in Chicago is one of my favorites. Seems cramped inside and was loud. A place I would return for a beer but not necessarily a meal.

“Taste old Ireland!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Loved this place! I went here for a business lunch and truly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Our waitress had a definite Irish brogue, and everyone thought their food was delicious. I got the Shepherd's pie, and I have to say it moght be the best I've ever had!
