Great place to have a pint and listen to the bartenders speak with Irish accents. They are usually very busy before sporting events and of course on St Patrick's Day and have a very unique decor that is worth checking out

The fish and chips at Fado is amazing! I frequent this resturant at least once a month. The staff is very polite and have authentic Irish accents. It is wonderful place to go and great for sporting events.

I've been 2 times in the past year on my trips to DC. This time I was solo at the bar. The bartender was prompt initially, but then seemed to forget about me. The lamb dip I had was really good, and I think the atmosphere would be pretty good with a group of friends. I think it's a little overpriced, and while the food was good, it wasn't great. These are both things I can overlook to give a place a second try, but the lack of attention from the bartender bothered me. It was early enough in the night that it wasn't yet busy, just a few groups of folks, do that doesn't explain it. Nothing was horrible, but I don't think I'll give them another try.

Service was great. We had a cold rainy day and stopped in for lunch to warm up. Atmosphere brought us back to a recent visit to Ireland (where the weather was the same :-). Food well prepared and the fireplace (and a Guiness) helped warm us !

A decent Irish theme bar with a fairly good menu of tasty food. Great selection of beer on draught served by reasonably friendly staff that can appear a little grumpy at first but persevere and they lighten up nicely

There are a couple of screens around for catching any sports that might be on. Decent music playing if a little loud when trying to get served.

This is a good spot to call into of you are heading to the Verizon Center.
