For comfort food and great beer, Fado's is always on our rotation. I have been working for four years in the Columbus area and have been going regularly to Fado's every two weeks for dinner and beer, or just for a beer after dinner from one of the many restaurants in the Easton mall area. I usually get the Shepherd's... More

Fish and chips all day long. Try a whiskey flight. My favorite by far is the all day Irish Breakfast for food.

came in for lunch and ordered several different menu items as it was my first time and i wanted to get a taste for the food. i have to say that everything that i got was out of this park! I recommend the pulled lamb sandwich with the thick lamb gravy as the au jus!

Inside is cozy Irish pub with tasty Irish pub food, outside is a welcoming patio to enjoy Cigars (Tinder Box is just next door). Serivce outside can be slow during peak busy times, but great beer selection and they don;t rush you at all. Great prices and ample parking.

Enjoy late night stops at Fado, amazing beer selections for anyone style of liking. During Soccer season always a must go for the atmosphere alone. Food is alright, some dishes better than others like most places

The Boxty & cheese dip is why we come! We came during a fight this last time and it was great. They charged a cover, but then gave it back to you in a gift card, so it didn't matter. The environment was great. We had Boxty & wings. The BBQ is really good. Not too spicy, not too sweet.... More

It's a great atmosphere to watch your favorite soccer game. Don't expect it to be a quite dinner when soccer is on. The food is very good. Had the special T-bone lamb chops. Wow this dish was awesome. But you need to get down and dirty with your hands, fork and knife just won't do it. Kelly was a great... More
