    Great breakfast. Went to see the Argentina-Australia rugby game and it was packed, but even still, the service was very good.

    Solid spot to watch soccer or grab a Guinness

    Best Irish Pub in the downtown area. Good Irish beers, great service. Be sure to try their shepherds pie!!!

    Dark, sprawling, big messy dump of an Irish bar, perfect fit events and parties. Many rooms on multiple floors. As at Hogwarts, the stairs like to change.

  • Rhett H.

    Tables in front only allow for 4 people and they won't let you add chairs. Nice staff otherwise.

    Great beer selection and the best bread pudding!

    Upstairs is a great place to catch a football match. Along with some chicken pot pie and a pint.

    Basically if I'm downtown for any reason, I'm trying to figure out a way I can get in to Fado for a pint.

    Everything I have had to eat here has been delicious. You can't beat the $3 Mimosas on Saturday and Sunday. Staff is great and love watching soccer here.

    Haven't been there for trivia night. But this place is amazing. From the atmosphere, the people, the food and the drinks. Hands down the best Irish pub in Chicago.

    If you're feeling wanderlusty but are too broke to travel (wah), Fadó & its Guinness draft will transport you to an alternate European universe, robust with soccer/rugby offerings. Atmosphere: rowdy

    The atmosphere and cocktails are awesome ❤️ Will come back for sure.

    Yuliya Maslava · April 17, 2014

    The atmosphere is rustic, but there is ample outdoor seating that isn't dark & dated. The cocktails are good, if overpriced. The food looked gr8, but fell down here and there in the taste department.

    This place has the best draft Guinness in Chicago. Great food and service. Love the Irish atmosphere. 5 stars!!!!

    Not the best meal to be honest. The Parmesan chicken burger was a 5 out of 10. A bit dry :-(

    Very hard to pick something from the menu. Nothing seemed to jump out. BUT the mac n cheese was BOMB , pork tacos were good but very Americanized, and the thick fries were delicious :)

    Good beer. Sh*t bar. Only come if it's past 2:00 am & you're desperate. Horrible service. Bartenders have serious 'tudes. Frakking expensive too, even for downtown Chicago.

    Michael S · November 10, 2012
  • Barry M.

    Came here before. Gave it a second chance. Napoleon at the door gave me the impression that things had not improved. Bartender and whiskey pour convinced me to never come here again, no matter what.
