Was staying close to this place and decided to go over to watch the football (soccer!) with a beer and Bute to eat. The staff were really friendly and couldn't believe just how nice the food was! I tried the fish tacos to start with and was immediately hooked as they had a really nice little spicy kick to them!... More

We hit this place every time we come to Philly. The place is packed at 10am with people watching soccer. It is a blast and the bartenders are very attentive and friendly. We have never eaten here, however.

It was Thanksgiving and few places were open. We found this place online and it was only a block off Broad St. And our hotel. I had turkey pot pit and it was great with real turkey chunks. Husband had Reuben and fries. Lots of food. The staff was very friendly even working on the holiday and we were able... More

The place was jammed but we were seated after only a short wait. The beer selection is awesome (they had Lancaster Brewing Co --... More

We got into Philadelphia late on a Thursday and were looking for a place to eat in Center City. We stumbled upon Fado, and it was a nice place. They stop serving food at 10 p.m., and that's almost exactly when we got there. Our waitress told us she could quickly get an order in so we could eat. Really... More

Best atmosphere -- standing room only for Barca v Real Madrid. And I mean for every 10 people sitting, there were 15 standing !! But great vibe for any soccer game - plus decent prices on beer.

These guys have the business clientele nailed. Quick service, a great menu and a friendly staff. Note that this is a pub, not a club, so you can actually talk and conduct business after hours.

Service okay. Food alright. Good Beer. Open early. Needed somewhere to go at 9 am before Nutcracker. It fit the bill for sure.
