It's been at least 18 years since I last visited Seattle and it wasn't until I walked into the pub that I remembered being there. Same authentic look, same great service, same great food and the same great experience. Thanks for more great memories.

Depending on what way you turn out of the Pub may prevent getting robbed. It sits in a kinda shady part of town. (Go left from the front door not right) Service was not that good. Ordered an appetizer that never ever came and a drink that did the same. Waitress's was not very friendly and one of the main... More

We wanted to watch the game and hotel front desk recommended Fado's. Walked in and the place was packed - black and gold everywhere! Shared a table with strangers but felt at home. Great atmosphere, lots of TV's tuned to the game and a couple tuned to other teams and one for soccer. Only had drinks but the food looked... More

Authentic Irish pub, right down to the mildewy scent. Definitely not the first Irish or British pub I've been to with that particular scent. Old wood, stale beer and mildew. It's cool pub though. Good selection of UK and domestic beer. Good service. No complaints.

We picked this place because we wanted to watch the Malta vs Scotland World Cup qualifier. They showed it and we knew they would because they say they will open at whatever time they have to for the sports schedule. It's hard to find sports bars that are actually sports bars and show all the games! We had brunch there... More

I had a very nice salad and my husband fish and chips. Nice place to sit down and the waitress was very kind and could reassure me that the goat cheese was without rennet. So I was happy to sit down and relax.

Pubs and soccer matches go hand-in-hand. Fado was a great location to grab a pint and some lunch. Environment was great. Service was awesome. Food and drink was reasonably priced. Great place for meeting people or to kill some time.

Was here for a business dinner. Food was great, service was also good. Smelled a little funky but wasn't an issue.
