"Went here for brunch Easter Sunday and had the full Irish breakfast while my wife tried the shepard's pie. Both were incredible and well prepared. This pub also pours a proper pint of Guinness alongside notable Irish brews: Magners, Harp, & Smithwick's. I tried their Irish coffee for dessert and was pleased they used real cream with cinnamon sprinkled on top. If you are looking for a traditional pub with great drinks, food, and atmosphere you don't have to search elsewhere."

"I love Irish Pubs and have been to Fado's a couple times and had the opportunity to bring a few co-workers with me while working in town. Guinness was on site doing "pouring" lessons so our group got to pour our own beer which they gave to us at no charge plus gave us cool hats. I was a bit disappointed in the shepherds pie but the appetizers were good as were the burgers."

"I think I had the very best fish n chips I have ever had. And that's saying something, because I am an aficionado of that particular dish and sample it whenever possible. I have had some terrific versions and some awful ones and everything in between. This place made the best one in all my years of living. Wonderful lager too, just can't remember the name. But the server was very knowledgeable and I simply asked for a lager that would pair well with my entree. I only didn't give it 5 stars because it was incredibly crowded and noisy. No fault of the pub - goes to show how popular it is. But you can't go wrong if you want a top notch Irish Pub!"

"This is one of my favorite Irish pubs and my go-to whenever I am in Chicago. The layout is spread across three stories, providing several different types of seating areas (e.g. bar, high tops, restaurant-style tables, booths, etc). Most of the staff are direct imports from Ireland, giving the place a very authentic feel. The beer list is excellent as are the traditional Irish menu items. It's a great place to catch an international football game or some live music. Or, just to entire a few pints with friends.
Highly recommended."

"I'd heard of this bar for years and wrote it off as just another River North scene-y bar. But I finally went for after work drinks on a Friday, and I was wrong. The ambiance is a cozy Irish pub, lots of hardwood, Irish music, and Guinness and Jameson drinks. The happy hour specials are incredible: $5 old fashioneds and manhattans, $6 Irish coffees, and $5 appetizers that are more than just bite-sized. Great place for a drink and appetizer!"

"Wonderful if you are looking for pub-grub which leans slightly to traditional Irish. The tap list is great, and there's even more in bottles. The service is excellent. The only reason I didn't give it 4 stars is with high ceilings and all hard wood surfaces, it's a noisy place to have conversation."

"Fado has it all, great décor, plenty of space, strong drinks and great beer as well as amazing food. Our server the last time went well above and beyond. Also, you must have the Corn Beef Spring Roll appetizer (or two)."
