Irish
Fadó (pronounced f’doe) is an Irish term meaning ‘long ago’. The Irish use it to start a story (the equivalent of ‘once upon a time’ ). We chose the name because at Fadó, we are telling the story of Ireland’s evolving Pub culture. You have always gotten great Guinness, Fish and Chips and fun in the best pubs in Dublin. Today, you will also see from-scratch cooking and seasonal food menus, craft beers from local breweries and quality, housemade cocktails. The Irish Pub in Ireland has evolved and we have evolved with them.Our’s is an Irish pub where the food is as important as the drink with all the items made fresh in house. You will see our food menu change seasonally and adapt to make sure Fadó is a quality option whether you are just snacking or going out for a full meal.

I made a reservation with Open Table. When I arrived at Fado, there was no hostess. I asked 2 waiters if they could seat me. They looked at me and said they are very busy, just sit anywhere. I had reserved a table for outside in shade. There were none available. So after we sat ourselves, a waitress came by about 15 minutes later and took our drink order. She came back with our drink, we ordered, she brought us our food eventually and I never saw her again. I had to go up to the bar to get my own drinks. The waitress was super pleasant and was clearly not her fault she was so busy. I blame this on management. What a disappointment. Food was fair for bar food.

Great food and good value.
Like every food service and retail store today, they need more staff.
But the team they have worked very hard to wait tables in a timely manner. Do visit and support, the food was great!

The service was good. Matt took good care of us. They were out of corned beef! Irish themed restaurant with no corned beef!? The Guinness was perfect. My friend seemed to like the Irish Manhattan. They were playing classic rock music and we enjoyed it very much. The atmosphere was comfortable and we liked the Irish theme. We will be back when they have corned beef.

Service was surprisingly challenging. Unfortunate. We both had Eggs Benedict and the food was delicious. Seemed the staff simply weren’t well trained.

There was only one waiter working. Service was super slow for drinks and food. We asked for appetizers to come out first and all the food came at the same time. Waiter also forgot my 2nd drink request from the bar. Won’t be rushing back!

We got there around 10:15 am and our table was dirty with crumbs... so never cleaned from the night before, in the age of Corona?! Ew. Good thing I really wanted Irish brekkie. It was tasty and the server friendly, the ambiance quiet but authentic Dublin-esque. The bartender walked around with his mask under his nose. Why did i give this place 4 stars again?

Indoor and Outdoor Service. Outdoor is partially covered. We ate outside. Waitress was very pleasant and did not rush you. We had the fish and chips and the Reuben and both were delicious. We would go there again. :)

Ambiance at Fado’s outdoor seating is delightful - on top of which we had lovely weather and a gentle breeze!

My Irish Breakfast was tasty, but a bit “heavy”. My wife’s Pear and Blue Salad was outstanding - very flavorful and generously portioned.

Fado has done a fantastic job of adapting to the new normal regarding dining during the pandemic. The food was excellent and our server was very attentive. I will continue to tell everyone I know what a wonderful experience it is to dine there.

Great service. Great food. Lovely evening for outdoor dining ... and they seem to have a handle on social distancing. Too bad eating outside meant sitting near smokers 😒

I went one day after indoor dining was allowed, but chose to sit outside on such a nice day. The waitstaff was exceptionally friendly and polite. It was great to finally sit down at a restaurant for the first time since the Covid shutdowns began.

Our table was waiting for us when we arrived. There are umbrellas for shade and the Fado patio is lovely. The tables were spaced even further apart than CDC recommended, giving everyone lots of personal space. We ordered from the brunch menu and everything was wonderful. We will Definitely go again.

Great happy hour deals from 4-7 pm on weekdays. Draft Guinness and craft cocktails. Bartender Chris was very friendly, attentive without being intrusive. Shepherd’s Pie was tasty. Selected appetizers $6. Chef was kind enough to grill my fish for tacos. Would highly recommend and will go again!

Awesome location for some local irish bar fun. Staff bartenders were exceptional on the incredibly busy night of McGregor fight. We had a terrific time eating great bar food and rooting for the Irish ! Will be back and share with friends.

Great early evening dinner on New Years Eve. 4 adults and a toddler enjoyed food and the energetic level of noise meant our little one wasn't a distraction to other diners.

Nice decor, but poor customer service. Had to seat ourselves, pit in our drink and food order at the bar ourselves, and when I spoke to the manager about the poor service, he blamed me for not finding him earlier to tell him about it. Service was a total joke, we won’t be back.

Meal before Navy-AF game with two grandsons. Played darts before and after meal. Lots of TVs showing college football games. Meals were a cut above pub grub. Enjoyed it.

Couldn’t get waited on. Had to move and beg for service. Ordered Shepard’s pie. Never came. Under time constraint. Was told only a Reuben could be made in time. All this totally unacceptable.

It isn't really mush of an Irish pub..The decor.is maybe sort of British. There was Irish stew on the menu
The fish and chips that we had was pretty good, but nothing special. The service was lackluster. Our server never came back to see if we wanted drink refills or anything else.

We joined a group of friends to have dinner and hear a band. The restaurant was flexible with changes to our original reservation. The server handled what could have been a confusing order. Everyone enjoyed the food and drink selections. The band was great.

The servers were slammed on Father's Day. Management should have had a few extra hands on deck.
