Diner Reviews
  • " Several friends had told me about McAdoo's restaurant, so I decided to check it out yesterday when I went to New Braunfels. It is located in a very charming old Post Office building, that has been beautifully restored for this purpose. The variety of foods offered on the menu was excellent. There was truly something for everyone offered. I chose the spinach salad, with a light vinaigrette dressing, & topped with blackened salmon. The 2 mimosas that I had prior to the entrée were excellent as well. The restaurant was a little pricey, But I will be back!"

  • "Enjoy our lunch with family members...enough room for all. One exception, on the kids menu, the french fries had a spicy season that was too much for the children in our party."

  • "the service was great and the food very good, the place was full for prom night but we still had a good meal and a nice wine. Would like to have a better wine list to choose from but its not bad, we can back for lunch the next day"

  • "From the nasty vodka martini, to the greasy steaks, to the strange taste with the shrimp and scallops. Nothing at this resturaunt tasted right, or good. The best part, leaving."

  • "We drive from San Antonio to New Braunfels to eat at McAdoo's - we love their seafood and the feel of the restaurant. On our last visit, we had a child and a baby with our group, and the hostesses and servers were very accommodating. Love the fried shrimp! The patio is very nice and the live music is fun; however we sat inside this last time. We will be returning!"

  • "The service was very nice. I purposely went at a time when it would be quiet, not so busy because I don't like busy, noisy, crowded place. I love the setting/architecture of this place. It feels nice. The food is good, not superb. "

  • "Located in an old post office, the ambience was great. The hostesses greeted us promptly and we sat right down. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The menu had variety. The con was that both my food and my husband's came out tepid in temperature. The plates were hot, the food was not. I had ordered the steak which came with mashed potatoes and asparagus. My husband had ordered the crawfish. We sent the food back and when it arrived again the food was warmer(I wouldn't say hot) but my asparagus was so overcooked it was blackened at the tips and soggy. While both managers came over to apologize for the cold food, they gave us no break on the price. My steak was just ok. Definitely not worth the $100+ price tag. May try again at lunch"

The food was spectacular, as usual, and we enjoyed it very much. We recommend the restaurant to anyone who will listen and heartily recommend it to anyone who reads this!"

  • "We were immediately seated at our reservation time. Leah came and got our drink order quickly, was patient, and answered all our questions as it was our first time. Her suggestions were spot on. The fondue for the appetizer was delicious. We ordered cajun enchiladas, the tilapia, mahi boudreoux, ribeyes, and the shrimp with scallops. The steaks were cooked to order and had great flavor. The enchiladas had hust the right amount of kick and were full of seafood. The tilapia was flaky and delicious. The mahi was also cooked cooked perfectly and the blackened spicing was good. Finally the shrimp amd scallops were amazing with the right amount of sear and very flavorful. Leah kept our drinks refilled and checked on us frequently."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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 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."
