Great hearty food in a cool sports bar

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.

While other Irish pubs and bars were asking for a coverage fee Fado's was not! Score! The band they had playing was excellent. They played from 60's to current, rock, country, and pop. They had the crowd going, lots of singing and dancing. All ages were there celebrating St Patty's day, and even if you went there alone, you would... More

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 flavorful. The key is the sauces on the different dishes, lots of unique flavors. The... 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 soccer match. It's typically not too busy, except before a Seahawks game. If you can... 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). Good pints, good food, good service, and good place to hang out and avoid the... More

I went back later for a beer (hey its a Irish pub 100 metres from my hotel!)... More

They combine Guinness with different beers, liquors and wow I'm not a big Guinness fan but there Black & Black is out of this world yummy!! They take Guinness and mix it with black currant syrup that turns the beer into a slightly sweet, creamy drink with hints of mocha.....and they have really great food! It's a nice bar with... More
