Not really a perfect Shepard's pie because it missed the lamb meat (it would be better to call as cottage pie instead) but it was really good. One of the best meal I had in a pub. And lots of beers to choose to pair....More

I love this pub from the great service, drinks, food, and the atmosphere. There is no other place like it in Austin. I seems that the owners of the strip are replacing it with something new and more on the high end. I hope this...More

This bar’s decor is very cool. We enjoyed sitting near a fireplace while drinking some Irish coffees in a cool night. It’s dark and cozy despite the bar actually being pretty big.

I was in Austin on business and decided to try Fado's Irish Pub for dinner. Good location being walking distance from many of the downtown hotels. I arrived early in the evening about 6pm. The restaurant was still relatively quiet. I had made a reservation...More

OK, it's almost hidden but 'discoverable' and worth the effort. It's a real(ish) Irish Pub atmosphere with a menu to match. Fish and Chips please with a good Belgian wheat beer - then we discovered it's Friday BOGO so for two, $32.something. A bargain and...More
