Yet again we were treated to
fantastic food and great service!"

We have been many times to
McAdoo's but this was first time for their brunch. Were not disappointed. Although the menu was somewhat limited the food was very well prepared as we have experienced at dinner time visits. Even my two picky eater teens were able to find something. The Bloody Mary bar was quite an adventure."

This was not my first time at
Mcadoo's. The food is always good and the service is usually outstanding. We had a good dining experience and the food tasted great. The prices are reasonable and the ambience not too loud. On this trip the only minor complaint was the food being slightly warm instead of the usual hot or very warm. I don't know what happened but it could have been that it was very busy and sat for a few minutes. The waitress was wonderful and it was not her fault. I would have sent it back but that would have been a longer wait. It was ok to eat since it was still slightly warm. I still recommend Mcadoo's because the food is very tasty and the place is inviting."

Yummy menu choices. Relaxing
atmosphere and attentive service."

We live in San Antonio. The
ambience was nice. The reservation meant nothing to be seated. The waitress did a good job. The taste was no better than Pappadeaux's but was more expensive. Considering the potential mediocre one time dish for us, I would still pick Pappadeaux's over McAdoo's anytime. Pappadeaux's: though somewhat noisy and no reservations with long wait, slightly indifferent waiters in San Antonio at 410, they are fast, food is great, and price meets expectations. I have to wonder if the "reservation" was more of a way to get you to come to the restaurant, smoke screen of special, but not so special. Again, this could be a one-time bad experience for our specific experience, but who knows."

Wonderful evening. Very busy, so
don't go if you're looking for quiet, but it still can be romantic! I did go for Valentines, and the booths were romantic enough. Like I've seen in other reviews, they had run out of a requested item by the time we got there - must mean it is fresh! We were sat in a private party by accident, and the owner Becky came and was very gracious, politely asked if she could re-seat us in an even better location and comped our wine. Food was DELICIOUS."

My husband and I went here for our
anniversary and it was awesome. Live Music, the piano player/singer was great, the waiter was super sweet, our order was a little messed up and he was apologetic and quick to fix. The food was yummy! The atmosphere was fun, energetic, just lovely. Overall a 10, the perfect anniversary spot!"

The food was great. Plenty of
choices on the menu and a variety of drinks available. Definitely a great upscale establishment with moderate prices"

The food was great, the service
was fantastic and having reservations helped. Walked in and was seated immediately. Often visit mcAdoos when I go to New Braunfels. Will be back again!!!"

A group of 8 of us decided to have
dinner at McAdoo's prior to attending a concert. Our table was ready when we arrived, we were seated immediately, and our server was attentive throughout dinner even though the restaurant was very busy! We loved the food and the attentiveness. Very friendly and inviting......will definitely return!"

We heard about it from friends and
it didn't disappoint at all. The food was fantastic and the proportions were perfect. It made our list of new favorites."

Revamped US Post Office... lots of
character and high-ceiling/spacious. Several eating areas, suitable for all group sizes. Seafood is excellent (mostly w/ a cajun flare), and the menu has a very large selection of options. Attentive wait staff."

The price, quality of food, and
service were very good."
Dined on 1/25/2014
We have been here several times
and there is a reoccurring issue...the food comes out warm and never really hot. It seems that it tends to sit for some time or they aren't organized to get the meals to the table when they are prepared."
Dined on 1/24/2014
We returned to this restaurant
because of the quality and variety of the food and the ambiance. We wanted to dine with friends and have a conversation and spoil them a bit with a nice selection great tasting food. It is a bit pricey for seafood, but the setting is wonderful. we stumbled across it the first time enjoyed it very much. We returned and brought friends because it was so enjoyable.v"

First time at McAdoo's. It was
highly recommended by several friends. It is very nicely decorated, A little too dark for my taste - even a candle or candle type lamp on the table would be nice to help read the small font menu :) . Comfort was not in mind when design for tables/chairs/lighting was being thought out. BUT it was very nice dinner - very good food. We should 've ordered a vegetable or salad as our entrée did not come with one. Did not see "dinner salad" as a choice but then again, we could barely see! Bread too hard to eat... Service a little on the slow side for even our water...and esp slow for items from the bar."

The food and atmosphere were
absolutely wonderful. Nice bar area to wait and great staff."
Dined on 1/4/2014
The server knew little about the
menu and was not a fan of seafood. The service was very slow with other tables receiving their meals before us. Wife had the Cobb chicken salad which was ok. I had fried seafood platter. Only good thing on plate was oysters. We had coconut shrimp as an appetizer and they were good. Took home a slice of key lime pie that was quite good too. Entrees were expensive, happy hour appetizer prices were only good in bar, but the decor was nice."

On a very busy New Year`s Eve, we
were delighted with the quality of food, the friendly and attendant staff, and the overall ambience - we shall certainly go there again, and highly recommend it."
Dined on 12/31/2013
Have eaten at this restaurant
several times with great experience. This last visit was very disappointing. Service was extremely poor. Our drinks took 15 minutes to get and food 1 hour. Waiter never came to explain anything. Finally a manager came to table to apologize. She said there was some computer problems. I would try this restaurant again due yo previous good experiences. But this night was not a good experience."

I love to take my family to this
consistently delightful dining experience."
Dined on 12/21/2013
We were put in a side room with
about 6 other tables. It was quiet. So quiet we could hear every conversation. It was really bright in the room. There was a small group with lots of children that made a huge mess. After being seated, we looked around and noticed a mushroom by my husbands chair. He asked the bus boy to pick it up after he was finished cleaning up the mess from the kids. Next time I will request being in the big room where there are more people. Our waitress was very sweet, personable, and served us very well."
Dined on 12/21/2013
The food was excellent. The wait
staff seemed to have too many tables to care for and were a little slow. One in our party asked for coffee following dinner and it never arrived but was on the bill."

Excellent food and setting! So
good we came back the next day :-) Keep up the good work!"

We have frequented this restaurant
several times and have never been disappointed. This time we chose to dine on their outdoor patio which had recently been renovated. It was nicely decorated and comfortable. The live music was enjoyable and not loud but a single guitar player and singer. Very nice atmosphere. The food was well prepared and spaced out so we could enjoy each course without being rushed. If you find yourself in New Braunfels, this is the place for good food and service."

Pretty pricey. Food was good. Had
changed menu so what was on website was not up to date. What I decided on before we arrived was no longer available."
Dined on 10/5/2013
This was our first visit, and we
picked this restaurant to celebrate my birthday because we had heard such good comments about it from several friends. When we arrived we were seated at our table right away. As soon as we were seated our waiter was available to take our drink orders. We had the best waiter - he gave us sufficient time to review the menu ( great food selection), answered our questions concerning items on the menu and checked on us periodically throughout the meal. Both of our meals were excellent. We plan on visiting MacDoo's again in the future."

Thou the ambience was great and
the singer had a good selection of music, it was difficult to maintain a conversation as the live entertainment was Very loud."
Dined on 9/26/2013
Fun place; remodeled post office.
Be sure to look on MapQuest for directions-not easy to find if you don't know the city, Good selection of dishes with options other than fried. Like the 2 or 3 choice customizable lunch plate."

We were very disappointed . The
crayfish and lobster bisque were identical except for the meat tossed in.The soft shell crab had enough lemon juice to kill the crab flavor ten times over. The fried shrimp were smaller than the minisule sized oysters . Let's not discuss the ridiculous prices for them. (flown in 1st class?) We ate in a side room-alone- so we escaped the packed noisy main room. Our room had many empty tables while people were standing in line- go figure. We had a reservation made on their web site thatvtheybhad trouble finding. The waitress was very nice and good service. The crayfish ettufeye was crayfish served over jumbalaya. Fourth dish - too unmemorable to remember. All in all, we need to find a new "go to" place."
Dined on 9/2/2013
Cute spot and after seeing mixed
reviews we thought we would give it a try. It's one of those places where we can check it off or list, but aren't wanting to go back to. Fish was really dry (seasoning was great so it had potential), the lobster was the most salty lobster we have ever had and I didn't care for their sangria.. over all was disappointed!"
Dined on 9/1/2013
This restaurant was ok, fine,
nothing special, except the bill! Two people for dinner, we each had two drinks and two dinners and the bill was over $100. This would be fine if the food and ambiance were amazing but they just were not. At best it was quite average. We were disappointed"
Dined on 8/30/2013
I booked several weeks in advance
we all were traveling great distances for a special night. When we arrived we could only be seated at two round bar tables on high chairs (not good for 84 yr grandma) - "large parties". We had a reservation well in advance they said they were sorry. My crawfish plate was lacking in flavor, fried crawfish were rubbery and very small portion of unseasoned etouffee. Two orders of raw oysters not sure they were both gulf. Calamari was fantastic. Salad for our daughter was good and mom enjoyed gumbo. Husband was disappointed in the Red Fish. Good wine list"
Dined on 8/22/2013
I can't remembered what it was
called that I got but it was blackened tilapia with rice. The fish was moist and tasted freshly prepared. My wife plate looked like it came right out of food network or a cooking magazine. I don't even remember what fish she had but I do remember it was good. My daughter had the Mac and cheese with fries an she loved it. We also got the seafood fondue and that was what set the tone for the rest of the night. the waitress was very courteous. There was no delay in refills, (had 4), was refilled before I could even ask. The place looked clean and very well maintained. I took my wife out for a spontaneous dinner and Mcadoos certainly stepped up to the plate to make me look good. Lol"

My husband, his two sons and I
recently met here to celebrate my husband's birthday. We had a very nice meal, great service and it was quiet enough that we could have a nice conversation without a lot of backgroumd noise. The restaurant was busy, and we were seated near the center of the room, but did not feel like we had to shout over other noise. Overall, a very nice experience. The Bloody Mary bar is an excellent idea!!! Will definitely be back."
