Fado is a large, Irish themed pub. Dark, lacking in atmosphere and very expensive. $90 for 4 beers, 2 very average main courses and an equally average dessert. Avoid and go to the more authentic Owl and Thistle down the road.

Went to Fado’s for dinner with family and received great service and food. The shepherds pie was wonderful along with the bacon burger. The drinks are good too. We would recommend this Irish pub and will return.

An extensive menu of great food, to accompany old fashioned's or beers whilst taking in some sport. Always a good atmosphere and top service.

Stopped by for a post wedding rehearsal get together. Lively place with a good beer selection. We had a small room right off the entrance so our group could just hang out together. Very nice wait staff that was attentive to the groups needs.

Fado is a pretty good pub, even though it is a chain. The food is good, the beer selection is good, and the atmosphere is really cool.

They have original Leffe beer from the Tab. We had fries, hummus, salads. Staff are friendly. The place is cosy, the kitchen is close at 11 pm.

While other Irish pubs and bars were asking for a coverage fee Fado's was not! Score! The band they had playing was excellent. They played from 60's to current, rock, country, and pop. They had the crowd going, lots of singing and dancing. All ages...More
