Football fan? Then this is you spot if you don't have Fox Sports. Oh and by football, I mean soccer for the Americans out there.

good place to hangout with large group of people – Food is good. I went to Fado with 6 of my friends and we dont have to worry about space. The place is divided in to section so we have some privacy. Great beer selection, little bit expensive.

Best in Philly – I love this place. Doesn't matter if you want drinks, food, music and dancing, or somewhere to go and hang out with friends and watch sports this pub gives it all. The staff hardly ever changes which makes for great relationship building when you come back time and time again. The best part for me has the be the decor though. It's a nice atmosphere with a lot of irish decorations. The usual customer does not pay attention but if you take the time to look around in the display cases some of the things are really nice.

A chain Irish pub touches down on Locust, bringing with it the blessing--and gifts--of Guinness sponsorship. – In Short
The cavernous maze of nooks and crannies is dressed in dark wood, with old-fashioned glass fixtures and faded photographs decorating the walls. A fireplace at the back of the restaurant is the setting for cozy cider-sipping. The young and lively patrons, a few notches above a frat crowd, gathers after work for quiz night, dart throwing and general merriment. Nightly entertainments include traditional Irish music, with the occasional American folkie filling in, and televised rugby and soccer matches.

Horseman, Pass By – On three separate occasions I endured the worst service imaginable from

indifferent, careless, and downright rude bartenders. The staff seems only

interested in talking amongst themselves, and actually seem annoyed when

asked to serve the customers. Memo to staff: good service = tips. Is anyone

in charge? Does anyone care? I think not. Which is too bad, because the Fado

pubs I've been to in Chicago and DC were lovely places.

Fado Rocks – We thouroughly enjoyed Fado. There was abviously more thought put into the decor and the atmosphere than most of the irish pubs we've been to and the food was excellent. The service was a little slow, but our waiter and host were very nice and knowledgable and it was worth the time to enjoy the experience.

ALTHOUGH WE DIDNT HAVE ANYTHING TO EAT, THE SERVICE AND THE PRIVATE BOOTHS @ THE BAR WERE BOTH COZY AND ROMANTIC. MY WIFE AND I STOPPED IN FOR AFTER DINNER DRINKS. WE HAD A BALL

VERY NICE CROWD

FA-DON'T – I've eaten here twice and both times had really slow service. The place wasn't even crowded. The second time I visited, I had to ask at the bar for our waitress who still didn't show up for at least 10 minutes. The food was okay, not great. Not even very interesting. Just the usual greasy pub food. The fish and chips felt like a ton of bricks in my stomach after eating it. I guess its okay to drink there, but they really don't care about quick service there. Copa Too is definitely better.

Outstanding service – A friend and I stopped into Fado last weekend before a show at the Wilma. We both found the atmosphere charming and cozy and the food well above par. The best part was our waitperson...she was very friendly and accommodating, and we felt like the staff really wanted to make it a pleasant experience for us. Do yourselves a favor and check it out!
