I've been for dinner and brunch. I always love the pub grub. There are some delicious sauces to dip your chips/fries in. I love the authentic Irish pub feel.

My co-worker and I stopped here for dinner last night and sat at the bar. We were met by our bartender, Dani, a Jersey Girl transplanted to Ohio. Friendly and attentive. We had the Shepard's Pie and a Bacon Cheese Burger along with two apps. The food and service were excellent. Nice Irish atmosphere with lots of nostalgic items. Many... More

Last night we met friends at Fado. They really won us over. I always complain about how no one around here (Ohio) knows how to build a Guinness, but Fado obviously takes this seriously. Every Guinness was built to perfection! I also tried a whiskey flight, which was a fun surprise. There are several options and if you love be... More

We live two hours from Columbus but we love going to Fado for the Irish breakfast so much we occasionally make a trip just to go there. However, this time we were in Columbus with our adult children and Grandchildren. Our service was outstanding, the food was wonderful and the atmosphere is like being in an authentic Irish Pub.

I love this place. It feels real when you walk in, and the food tastes like what you get on the Emerald Isle. The staff is excellent, and service is typically very quick and friendly. Overall, an excellent place for a quick bite for lunch or a dinner with friends.

Stopped here with Nephew's family of 4 visiting from China, It was noisy and smelled of smoke due to smoking outside drifting in but they gave us a large booth so we were able to converse. Food was excellent and service great.

For comfort food and great beer, Fado's is always on our rotation. I have been working for four years in the Columbus area and have been going regularly to Fado's every two weeks for dinner and beer, or just for a beer after dinner from one of the many restaurants in the Easton mall area. I usually get the Shepherd's... More

Fish and chips all day long. Try a whiskey flight. My favorite by far is the all day Irish Breakfast for food.

came in for lunch and ordered several different menu items as it was my first time and i wanted to get a taste for the food. i have to say that everything that i got was out of this park! I recommend the pulled lamb sandwich with the thick lamb gravy as the au jus!

Thank Peter K
