Fados has your typical Irish pub feel- dark and lots of wood. Although it is large, it maintains the small pub feel with lots of small spaces created with wooden railings. The menu has a nice variety. The Fadó Reuben (corned beef, coleslaw, Swiss, Marie Rose sauce on marbled rye) was very good and had a unique flavor because of the slaw and sauce used instead of the typical sauerkraut and 1000 island dressing. The Shepherd's Pie is made with ground beef and vegetables in a rich sauce topped with colcannon. It was very flavorful. The sauce used stands out. It is served with Kale & Barley Salad and Guinness cheddar bread. The salad was delicious! We also ordered two "smalls" - basically sliders. We selected the Irish Toastie (Maplewood smoked all natural ham, cheddar, mango chutney) and the
Cuban (ham, Irish rasher, Swiss, pickle, mustard). Again they put their twist on the traditional Cuban and that made it tasty and unique. Monday is trivia night. So it was a lively fun place to be!

We have held a meeting here for several years and we keep coming back for a reason. Great service and food. We get appetizers and the waiter we had this year was GREAT. Everyone commented how quick the service was and how great the atmosphere is. Many come back on personnel trips later since the place is so good. They are very accommodating when making the reservation each year. Highly recommend.

The Fado Irish Pub is located within a large shopping center. The food was good. Shepard's Pie was excellent. We sat outside and their was a little odor from the smoking section. Not a big deal.

We like to go to Fado for something different. There are good Irish selections in addition to pub food. Great beer selection, too!

The good:
The atmosphere! Great little pub for watching a game. Food is great, drink options are great. Prices are pretty average for the area. Staff is friendly. If a big game is not going on, and if it's a weeknight, you can usually find a table pretty quickly.

The bad:
This only applies when the bar is full due to a game, or if it's a weekend evening. The bartenders are always extremely busy. I wish they'd have more, as you're usually waiting to get a drink. Good luck finding a seat (or even fitting in the door!) or a parking spot.
