“St Patrick's Day was a hoot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

I went to Fado on both the 16th and 17th this year and the place was packed. Lots of good live Irish music. Good beer selection besides Irish beers - IPA's are my thing. Wings are good. I've eaten other things there too, all good.

“Great food, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Had a couple of meals here and more than a few great local craft beers! Fado's is just down the street from our hotel so we gave it a try. Food was very good, typical pub fare. Prices were reasonable and the staff was very friendly. Give them a try.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Awesome Irish pub atmosphere, food, drinks and service. Top moth fish and chips. Incredible fish tacos. Service with a smile. Reasonable prices. Good TVs. Great rock n roll music. Perfect! Easy walk from Westin and Park Place hotels.

“Used to be 'go to' place, now just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

It's a cool place, but honestly while the wait/door staff is very nice, the bartenders all need serious training ala customer service, politeness, and better yet, how to control their bar. Ie> they consistently skip over people because they have no sense of their stations or who is next; they seem very flustered and super disorganzed on busy nights/holidays; and they tend to be really rude without cause. They just consistently get worse and worse for some reason. The DJ on weekends, KC? CK? is not the best either, he's just random as heck and all over the place with the music.

The food is really tasty though, and the drinks tend to be made right. Not an inexpensive bar, but still worth it for the food.

“Nice people and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Fado's is situated on site with the Westin hotel. There is a lovely courtyard and fountain for outdoor dining. During the spring and summer months, this is a fun option. I have never had a disappointing meal at Fado's. The location is not quite downtown Annapolis, but the area is pedestrian friendly.
