“Grab a beer and an appetizer before a game.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We recently went to Fado for the second time. It's a great little bar not too far from the stadiums so its the perfect place to grab a beverage and some food before attending a sporting event. The chicken strips are delicious (not very "Irish", but delicious) and the potato wedges with cheese dip are amazing! They currently have a seasonal menu that features local greens (one salad comes with goat cheese fritters...mmm!), so if you're feeling the need for a healthier bite they have options! Even though it was packed, they still had great service, even apologizing for the delay of our food (which we thought was right on time).

“Real Irish Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Drink costs can get high quickly, but service is like being in Ireland. A bit noisey as the evening went on, but a fun crowd.

“Get the CORNED BEEF”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

About the best corned beef I have ever had. No fat or gristle, super tender in a flavorful slightly mustard based sauce with the small red potatoes. Wait staff was very helpful about menu, Seattle attractions, you name it. Prices were a tad above where I would have liked but this place is in the older Pioneer Square area of downtown Seattle so expect most places to have a higher than expected pricing schedule. Others had fish and chips - a real crown pleaser.

“Great for a Pint!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

Walking back to our hotel from the Pike Street Market, we stopped for a beer and a snack at Fado Irish Pub. We sat at an outdoor table and enjoyed the tasty beer and people watched!

“management is a bit sketchy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

brough a big group here, were told that we could bring our families until 11:00PM but the manager on duty decided to over rule his general manager's decision and wound't let us in at 9:00. Our group made up 90% of the customers in the pub that day and I was wishing at the time that I could take all 300 of them and move to another place.
