“Liked it so much we ate there twice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

We stayed at a hotel a few blocks away and as I like a pub, we went for lunch. The waitress was very nice. My daughter loved the burger. I had the fish and chips. We sat toward the back away for the soccer (football!) game on TV. We went a second time for dinner. It seemed homey and relaxed. The Guinness icecream was interesting.

“Great bar in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2011

We have gone to Fado on two separate trips to Philadelphia and greatly enjoyed ourself both times. The first time was to watch a football game, the second for New Years Eve. Both times we had a great time, the other patrons were all in their 20's but not a typical college crowd. Service at the bar can be a little slow. NYE was a great deal at only a $15 cover which included a champagne toast (most other places in Philly were a lot more). We have not tried the food, and the drinks were a little price-y, but over all it's a great bar in a great location.

“Not impressed with Fado”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2006

Went there on a Sunday afternoon to watch the game. The place is cozy and has a relaxed irish vibe. The food and drink were decent but not worth the money. There was a misunderstading about the tip. Our waitress chased us out and confronted us in the doorway. In the end she took the tip she wanted, charging us much more than what was signed for on the bill. Steer clear.
