This restaurant is a typical Irish pub, like I used to see in Europe. However, the food is not properly Irish, but it's not bad. Service is quite fast, although sometimes they forget to bring some drinks. It was a busy day, I just admit...More

We do enjoy going to Fados. The location ia great. Bartenders are mediocre at best. Always grumpy like they hare their job. They seem annoyed having to get you a drink. Most have been there awhile. Fados would do well to get some new ones.
