“Yummy pub food”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We stopped in for a drink before a movie. Had great pub appetizers and reasonably priced drinks. Very authentic Irish decor from what I could tell. Would recommend.

“Perfect for a couple beers”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We loved the live music and great Irish atmosphere at Fado! You can't beat Guinness and Strongbow on tap!

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Had a wonderful afternoon with some special people here. The salad was actually one of the best I have had anywhere! Loved the atmosphere, enjoyed the drinks, the waitress was quite Irish! A place worth returning to.

“Not bad but not as good as the one in Chicago...”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

The service was good and the food was OK. I had higher expectations as the Fado in Chicago is one of my favorites. Seems cramped inside and was loud. A place I would return for a beer but not necessarily a meal.

“Taste old Ireland!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

Loved this place! I went here for a business lunch and truly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Our waitress had a definite Irish brogue, and everyone thought their food was delicious. I got the Shepherd's pie, and I have to say it moght be the best I've ever had!
