The husband & I loved how traditional this place felt from the moment we walked through the front doors. As someone who has traveled to Ireland before, I fully appreciate the authentic Ireland feel that is very real here in the decor, drinks & the...More

While enjoying one of the most beautiful days ever in Seattle, we stopped for lunch at Fado’s downtown. The server was extremely friendly and the food was out quickly. The Shepard’s Pie was absolutely delicious and the farmhouse salad had tremendous flavor. We will definitely...More

An extensive menu of great food, to accompany old fashioned's or beers whilst taking in some sport. Always a good atmosphere and top service.

Stopped by for a post wedding rehearsal get together. Lively place with a good beer selection. We had a small room right off the entrance so our group could just hang out together. Very nice wait staff that was attentive to the groups needs.

Fado is a pretty good pub, even though it is a chain. The food is good, the beer selection is good, and the atmosphere is really cool.

They have original Leffe beer from the Tab. We had fries, hummus, salads. Staff are friendly. The place is cosy, the kitchen is close at 11 pm.

Honestly, have only eaten breakfast/brunch here, and have stopped for Happy Hour, but, I love the place. Breakfast/Brunch is a hardy affair with lots of flavor. The homemade hash is wonderful, the smoked salmon is as good as it gets, and appetizers are also very...More

Fado's is one place I stop every time I visit Seattle. I am not sure if I have ever eaten here before, but they have probably the best Guiness pour in the city. It's a nice sized bar, and a good option to watch a...More

Its a nice pub in the pioneer square area. I've been here a few times, and have been to the Chicago Fado about a gazillion times. This bar is huge with several rooms inside (after a few drinks it can feel like a maze inside)....More
