“Great food and brew!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I walked from my hotel and my GPS had a little trouble finding Fado with the construction, but the food, brew, service and atmosphere were well worth the trouble!

“Pub Food and Soccer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

If you like the traditional pub fare of Fish and Chips, Bangers and Mash etc along with a good selection of beers, this may be for you. The decor is designed to evoke memories or representations of an old time pub but it is a modern building, fairly recently refurbished and the atmosphere is that of a Sports Bar. If you want an economical meal or just a drink while you watch your favorite EPL or other soccer game, then this is for you. It is not Haute Cuisine but it is perfect for what it is, good fun at reasonable prices. The valet parking is a nice touch in the middle of Buckhead.

“Go for the decor/roof top patio/average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The decor is pure pub - lots of rich wood, nooks and crannies to sit in - TVs to catch the game(s)..cozy in some spots and loud in others - everything to fit your mood. The authentic brews (think half&half/black&tan,etc.) were expertly dispensed from the tap. We chose classic fish & chips and bangers & mash - they weren't the best we've had but did hit the spot for lunch. You can take your favorite beverage and move about the building - upstairs has an additional indoor roof top bar and outside dining area with fireplaces and TVs. We enjoyed chatting with the bar tenders and would recommend this place for a pleasant to spend a Saturday afternoon.

WARNING - if you use the parking meters on the street be sure to keep them fed (even on the weekend) - our meter had been expired about 15 minutes and we had a ticket waiting on the windshield. (The bar tender had told us they didn't ticket on Saturday/Sunday - just an FYI - Atlanta/Buckhead does.)

“Great, fun, place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Wonderful atmosphere, all sorts of wonderful Irish, English, German, and even Dutch beers on tap. Best onion rings we've ever had! Other standard pub fare done very well. Lively atmosphere. We're going back for dinner again in three nights. Katie, our server, was terrific.

“Local pub, ok food, service, fun bar.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Visited here while on weekend trip with my husband. Service was slow, maybe because we were not young and hip!

Farmhouse salad was excellent. Mini burgers were fair. Had to go to bar myself to get 3 waters.

Lively fun bar atmosphere. Nice TVs to watch sporting events.
