The menu and quality atmosphere at Fadó will reset your expectation around what it means to eat at an Irish Pub. The menu starts with a broad range of snacks for sharing; top sellers here include Salmon Bites (we think it's the best Snack ever), Harp Battered Fish Tacos and the Big Soft Pretzel. There are a number of burgers and sandwiches. Favorites include the Fadó Pub Burger (add the egg), the Black Bean Burger, our Signature Reuben and a Slow Cooked Lamb Dip. The star of our entrée section is our Fish and Chips which uses sustainably caught cod from the deep waters off of Iceland. We contract with just three vessels to bring us this tasty fish. You’ll also see Irish staples like Shepherd’s Pie and Corned Beef and Cabbage. There is also an ever rotating selection of Seasonal specials using in-season ingredients and flavors. Enjoy a wonderful meal (and a few drinks) in an environment where everything was built in Ireland and sent to the U.S. where you see it today.

Great place to watch a game! The only drawback is they continued to play music while Duke vs. UVA men's basketball was on. It would have been nice to hear the broadcast.

Fados is our go to on the weekend for a Manchester United game. While we’ve made the trip to Fado’s before for big games, this is the first time we’ve used open table to make reservations for a Sunday game. I was sooo pleased to see a prime spot in front of the projector was actually reserved!! Top five stars for that. We come to fados over the other football/soccer pubs in the area for the brunch and bottomless mimosas that never disappoints. Thank you for keeping my reservation on an busy Sunday morning !! Recommendations for brunch are the eggs Benedict and pancakes ... pancakes are delicious.

Made reservations and none were honored, was told by the greater at the door that our reservation meant nothing....Food was average at best (Typical bar food) atmusfear was very good and I liked the look of the place, but employees were rude and really didn't care if we stayed or not. Will never go there again.

We were there for a 70th birthday and had a great time. The food and service was excellent and the pricing was very affordable. It was a bit noisy but it was during a football playoff game so it is understandable. Highly recommend it to folks looking for a good time.

Fado has become a favorite. The atmosphere is casual and fun and for a pub, the menu is surprisingly creative. I'm a big fan of their Guinness combinations - the best of which is the Black and Black -Guinness with a splash of blackcurrant. The smoked salmon appetizer can be ordered using cucumber slices for people doing paleo like me. Overall a great experience.

Overall it was OK. We loved the lamb dip and tacos. But probably only a good spot for casual predictable bites and an unassuming crowd. We'll be back for fish & chips.

Great evening.

It was a busy Friday with one large party just starting and another happening in an hour, but the quality of the service and food was as good as if we were the only people at Fado.

Not the cheapest place, but for an evening out that you'll enjoy you can always count on Fado.

I brought a few guests from out of town to Fado, since my guests were avid craft beer drinkers. Was pretty disappointed to learn that 4 of the 7 draft beers were not available, on a Friday night.

Also the table service was very slow, almost 20 minutes went by before our drink order was taken, after we were seated.

We won't be back.

Gathered here to watch a football game with a group of college pals. Fado could not have been more accommodating. When more people showed up than we had a reservation for, no problem. Separate checks for 12? No problem. The food was very good. Atmosphere, superb. I always forget how much fun this place is.

We had made a reservation for a group of ten, but the table that was shown to us seemed to be too small. The staff was very flexibel and helpful to rearrange some tables in another area to ensure that our group had enough space. Service was great, always checking in if we had still food and drinks. Have been to Fado's mnay times and always enjoyed it.

Went for brunch with a large group. Enjoyed the $15 bottomless mimosas and the different brunch options. The mimosas were a great deal for the money (I've found other places that offer motionless mimosas are usually mostly orange juice) and the food was great! Fun, cheap, and great service.
