The menu and quality atmosphere at Fadó will reset your expectation around what it means to eat at an Irish Pub. There is a broad range of snacks for sharing and fantastic burgers and sandwiches. The star of our entrée section is our Fish and Chips which uses sustainably caught cod from the deep waters off of Iceland. You’ll also see Irish staples like Shepherd’s Pie and Corned Beef and Cabbage. We take great pride in our seasonal menu which changes regularly.

We are known for our cocktail selection with an emphasis on Irish spirits, a broad range of local craft beers and, of course, the best Pint of Guinness in Atlanta.

Our calling card is our hospitality and everything you see in the pubs was built in Ireland and shipped to the U.S.A.

Fado did not recognize our reservation. We were told to find a seat wherever.
They were participating in a bar crawl event so it was crowded with lots of over served patrons.
Server was efficient but ambiance was less than favorable .
We left very soon after our order and one drink.

I think that they have the best bottomless brunch in the city. Great for larger groups! Their playlists are always very fun and a great atmosphere. The servers are typically amazing and are constantly refilling your glass!

The server was a young woman with a nose ring. She was absolutely miserable. Every time she came to our table she would interrupt the energy with her I don’t care attitude. She was monotone and did not care about making our experience great.

Please reconsider her employment because she is not doing y’all any favors. She was miserable

It was a birthday celebration and everything was wrong. No table reserved; no salt and pepper on the table; asked for ice water with lemon. Was brought out tepid water and no ice or lemon. My husband’s second beer didn’t arrive until he finished his food.

Stopped in immediately after a training session in town. Being from Philly, we have our own Fado's, but the ATL Fado's was just as good, with friendly staff and a good drink selection.

My friends and I had dinner at Fado’s after biking and drinking with Southern Pedalers. The food and service were top notch. It was a classic pub atmosphere on a Friday night. Loved every minute! I had the Fish and Chips, and it did disappoint. Having toured Ireland for 10 days and eating in many Irish pubs, I was thrilled to find a menu so close to what I experienced in Ireland. Check it out!

Fado Irish Pub was one of the Best Irish Pubs I have ever been to in the US. My Server (Mike) was Outstanding in the Service he provided and the Friendliness. The Shepard's Pie was delicious and just what I wanted on my way to the Fox Theater to see Celtic Woman: Ancient Land! The crowd was fun to watch as they cheered and applauded a soccer match.

Our server (her name was either Lindsey or Lexie) was very good! She gave great recommendations and was very friendly. I felt bad for most of the staff in general though because it was Sunday brunch with bottomless mimosas (we got there at 1 right so everyone had been drinking for awhile it seemed) so lots of the guests were extremely drunk and seemed a little problematic, making it difficult for the waitstaff to keep up all the time. Other than that everything was perfect so I’m sure it’s even better earlier on sundays or at a time when they aren’t having bottomless mimosas.

Loved the food. Everything we ordered was good. Service could have been better, but it wasn’t terrible. We went b4 a show at the Fox, and we thought it was very convenient. We had a big group, so that probably affected the slow service and delays in getting everyone’s food. We will be back.

Stopped in for a few apps and drinks from friends while we were in town for a conference. The surroundings were authentic Irish. Sit in the Whisky Room if possible. The fare was simply exceptional. The goat cheese and salmon appetizers were out of this world. The lamb shank sandwich was flavorful. The drink selection is what you would expect from a high end bar. Highly recommended!

Excellent service! Our group of 6 came in for Sunday Brunch. Food was great, half the group had the hand breaded chicken tenders and loved them. Bottomless mimosas for $15! We will be back.

We had a wonderful dinner with friends. The food was scrumptious, we especially loved the Pimento Cheese with Bacon Jam and Salmon Bites. The featured drinks were tasty too. Brian was our waiter and, though he was very busy, struck the perfect balance of attentiveness and allowing us space. He was knowledgeable about the menu and gave great suggestions. We’ll be back!

I had high hopes for this restaurant, but the experience was pretty terrible. First, we (obviously on a date) were seated an off-balance table right next to some douchey-loud bros in incredibly close quarters so the entire time we ate, all I could hear was their gross conversation. The waitress slid coasters under our lopsided table “to fix” the problem.

We ordered the cheese dip served with potato pancake wedges for an appetizer and the dip was runny, but worse, the pancakes were burnt and when I asked the waitress about it, she shrugged and my husband, being the kind souls he is, just accepted the obviously burnt food.

The waitress was solicitous refilling my husband’s beer, but I had to ask for my water and soda to be refilled. The entree was only so-so, the lamb dip tasted like something a home cook would make, not a restaurant and the fish tacos had a sauce on them that was incredibly vinegar-laden and inedible.
