Guinness chicken wings, smoked salmon and an "all-day Irish Breakfast" that will definitely get you going any time of the day.

Disclaimer: Not my going-out area of choice. With that said, this is a fine pick should you find yourself in the vicinity. Plenty of drafts to pick from, frequent live tunes, and plenty o' space to mingle.

My idea of heaven – A couple of cold ones, corned beef and cabbage and I never heard of brown bread ice cream but trust me and the bartender. Can't wait to get back for a replay. I don't write reviews unless a place is extraordinarily (good or bad). I really liked this place and no, I'm not Irish.

good place – I'm really into Irish pubs lately. This place is pretty good. Woudl recommend if you're looking for the Irish hang-out and don't want to go too far north.

Just like Ireland – I thought the pub and the entire staff were great!! From the moment I walked in it felt like home. I love the fact that I received a specialty glass for my pint of beer. It was a nice touch that I appreciated.

Food was great and service reminded me of when I was in Ireland as far as their friendly disposition. We came for a pint and stayed for the night!

Chicago outpost of a national bar franchise with Celtic charm and one of the best Guinness pours around. – The Scene
Part of an American chain that has true Erin roots, Fado has "Irish" decor down: stone formations, looms, trunks and garish Celtic imagery. The first floor is bar, angles and alcoves. The mezzanine is a faux ship's deck, with one long, curved banquette and few tables. Second-floor tables are mostly tiny, with little elbow room; seats are hard, backless stools.

The Draw

This faux olde Irish pub offers theme-entertainment and a full bar to tourists and River North office workers, plus it serves an undeniably nice pint of Guinness (and many other brews), thanks to the state-of-the-art European gassing system. This and the occasional live Irish folk music lend warm authenticity. The food menu offers the usual suspects of fish and chips, shepherd's pie, and boxty (potato pancake with filling), as well as American favorites like chicken fingers, sandwiches and salads.

User review by ssmit54 – Cowardly security men! Ladies beware! I suggest the nice manager at this Irish Pub re-think his big brawly security guard!

bad experience – I was utterly and totally disgusted by the service I encountered at Fado's. A big brawly bouncer who decided to abuse his power rejected my entrance to this not-so-great pub simply because i asked for a manager when i realized i had forgotten my ID. He lied and told me he was the mangager and asked me to leave. He was merely a security guard. The REAL mangager eventually came out after I went home, got my ID, and came back. These guys really know how to treat a lady. LADIES...I don't reccommend you go to this place unless you feel like an evening of cowardly men.

Cracking good spot – I'm over here from Ireland, and this pub IS like an Irish pub, but a newer Irish pub than the ones I've seen around here. The staff are excellent, the women are beautiful and the pints are great. I'd recommend the boxty and the fry as well. Top class.

CozyCorner Pub – This is a very cozy little bar,good for cold winter nights.It is a little dark inside so if you have a few too many guinnesses beware of the stairs. The food was more english than Irish and a good helping of cigarette and cigar smoke did no good to the taste of the food. The smell of second hand smoke is a little too overpowering in this pub which is the only thing that will keep me away next time.
