The go-to place for viewing soccer and rugby matches - you'll be in good company as you cheer on your favorite team! The attentive bar staff will keep your glasses full!

I have to say this was one of the best fish and chips I have had this side of the pond. The fish was firm and flavorful and the batter divine. The Guinness was well kept and slipped down far too easily.

Great curry fries, lamb, fresh salad, and mixed drinks. Restaurant has multiple levels. We were out on the rooftop and there was cigarette smoking at the bar, didn't know that was still legal in some places (it's not where I'm from in the US).

I've been to Fado for lunch and its an okay place to have a reuben or fish and chips in a nice faux pub atmosphere. At night, its a bar. We tried dinner at 6:30 and the music was so loud the waitress had to go cheek to cheek to every diner to get the orders. When the soccer came... More

In town on business and have never eaten here before. Jumped right in for a great corned beef sandwich and some soup. Blonde Guinness wasn't bad either.

My husband and I have been coming to Fado and introducing friends to this great Irish Pub several years and tonight was just an off night. We had a visitor in state from PA and we offered to take her Fado for dinner. The bar was busy with Gator fans as we arrived in the 4th quarter of the Gator... More

Second time I've come to this pub. Great place to drink (and smoke my cigar upstairs in the patio area). Watched the Cubs win their first World Series since 1908. Good times! Great vibe and place to hang out

My husband and I met some friends at Fado Irish Pub. We all ordered brunch food and it was delicious! My husband and my friends husband even liked the black and white pudding ( also known as blood pudding)! The only thing I would have changed - I would have gone later because we couldn't order a Bloody Mary or... More

The place is in the heart of Buckhead. Parking can be difficult. We were lucky and got a space right in front of the place. Food was excellent and the half and halfs were the same. Great staff. We had the mini burgers and the Ruben both perfect. Wil go back again while in Atlanta.

We watched the Arsenal game this weekend (won 3-0) and the 50+ gooners in the pub created an awesome atmosphere. Tips? Arrive 30 min before a game a grab a table - it gets busy Valet park - it's only $5 and you'll get a ticket if you street park around here Eat - the pub food is great!
