The good: The atmosphere! Great little pub for watching a game. Food is great, drink options are great. Prices are pretty average for the area. Staff is friendly. If a big game is not going on, and if it's a weeknight, you can usually find a table pretty quickly. The bad: This only applies when the bar is full due... More

We had drinks and the gigantic hot pretzel. We were not disappointed!! The pretzel really is huge. It comes with both a cheese dip and a ground mustard. If you like warm, fresh, chewy hot pretzels.....don't hesitate to try one!!

We visited this pub for a quick meal after a long day. Once you enter the second set of doors, the smell of cigarette smoke hits you squarely in each nostril and then settles in your throat. It doesn't make for a good start to a meal for a non-smoker. The server we got brought us one round of drinks... More

I've been for dinner and brunch. I always love the pub grub. There are some delicious sauces to dip your chips/fries in. I love the authentic Irish pub feel.

My co-worker and I stopped here for dinner last night and sat at the bar. We were met by our bartender, Dani, a Jersey Girl transplanted to Ohio. Friendly and attentive. We had the Shepard's Pie and a Bacon Cheese Burger along with two apps. The food and service were excellent. Nice Irish atmosphere with lots of nostalgic items. Many... More

Last night we met friends at Fado. They really won us over. I always complain about how no one around here (Ohio) knows how to build a Guinness, but Fado obviously takes this seriously. Every Guinness was built to perfection! I also tried a whiskey flight, which was a fun surprise. There are several options and if you love be... More

We live two hours from Columbus but we love going to Fado for the Irish breakfast so much we occasionally make a trip just to go there. However, this time we were in Columbus with our adult children and Grandchildren. Our service was outstanding, the food was wonderful and the atmosphere is like being in an authentic Irish Pub.

I love this place. It feels real when you walk in, and the food tastes like what you get on the Emerald Isle. The staff is excellent, and service is typically very quick and friendly. Overall, an excellent place for a quick bite for lunch or a dinner with friends.

Stopped here with Nephew's family of 4 visiting from China, It was noisy and smelled of smoke due to smoking outside drifting in but they gave us a large booth so we were able to converse. Food was excellent and service great.

Thank vhkarl
