McAdoo's Ratings and Reviews
30-Sec Review: While McAdoo's is classy on all levels, the long wait for food can turn a into a 2 hour dinner. Food is great, drinks are great, oysters are great. Service is better than most, the wait is the only reason I'd consider elsewhere.
Oysters - All were delicious. Literally, we had 4 varieties. No complaints.
Seabass - Tender, moist, superb. Rice was slightly sweet but no issue at all. Overall, yum.
Halibut - No complaints from my tablemates. Flash fried spinach is bomb!
Parmesan Trout - Well cooked, crispy and not dry. Good flavor, lemon dijon sauce was not overly caper-flavored, which I appreciated. Flash fried spinach!!
Mahi-mahi New Orleans - Deliciously grilled, this embodied a yum creole flavor.
As I said, the food was great. But we did wait nearly 1 hour for entrees for our table of 8. It was a big table but certainly 1 hour on a Sunday night was much.
This is a NICE restaurant in a old post office beautifully restored. We all ate seafood and our meals were great.
This was a dinner for six celebrating our 55th anniversary and was disappointed the restaurant didn't recognize that by offering something small.
Overall it was a pleasant evening
We celebrated Christmas dinner with family and we were promptly seated at our reservation time. We had very good service and the waitress even volunteered to take our photograph. Our appetizers were delicious and everyone was completely happy with the meal they ordered. I strongly recommend this place for an excellent seafood entree. Price was very reasonable. We will definitely return for lunch or dinner.
Great experience; however, this was the second time in the past few months where we made our McAdoo’s reservation thru OpenTable but the restaurant did not have a record of it. Fortunately, it was during an off period so McAdoo’s was able to accommodate our party.
Absolutely fantastic as always, from the seating service through to the desert presentation. Prompt, courteous professional wait staff. Excellent authentic Cajun cooking. Nostalgic, interesting atmosphere and location makes you feel welcome to a wonderful dining experience. Upbeat but not snobbish.
Everything was great. John Mark and Eric were awesome. If you go for brunch I recommend the Bloody Mary bar. Oysters were a great start, crab cakes Benedict also great, and my husband raved about the chicken and waffles especially the waffles. We will be back.
The restaurant was converted from an old Post Office and has some of the original furnishings displayed (tastefully) within the restaurant. However, the new construction far exceeds the original building and has a great ambiance. Our food was delivered quickly and was of excellent quality. Our server was great and we plan to request her for our next visit. Overall, a great dining experience and value.
This place was fantastic. Me and my wife went for our anniversary/ date night while visiting New braunfels and were blown away. The food was amazing . The gumbo, red fish and mahi mahi is what we got. The sauces on the fish with crawfish and crab mixed in were amazing, definitely was one of the best gumbos I have had and even down to the bacon crumbles in the wedge salad was really great. Highly recommend this place if your in the area very busy so MAKE RESERVATIONS!!!!!
Was very happy how management really worked hard to make sure our dining experience was great. Our server was exceptional. The only thing they should include is a description of their additions. Their grilled shrimp were Cajun spiced which wasn't known prior to ordering.
Food was great, unfortunately our waiter forgot about us for most of the night and left us with empty glasses. The hostess Hannah was awesome! She did a lot of things for us that didn't fit her job description. Our waiter owes her his tip, big time. This is my second trip to Mcadoos, the first trip the service was unbelievable. I think this time we were victims of a very busy night, and we were seated in a smaller room next to a VERY loud large group. It was so loud we couldn't hear each other at all. We will be back again because the food is so good, and I think we will again have a good experience.
We're originally from the New Orleans are so finding seafood that reminds us of home is sometimes tough in the Austin area. McAdoos is at the top of our list and is definitely worth the drive. We've eaten here several times since it was recommended by a friend and have been very satisfied each and every time we've gone. Always leave looking forward to the next time.
One of the best meals and dining experiences ever including some top five star dining spots. The food is always prepared perfect, fresh and tasty. The Mexico City cocktail is the best one that I have tasted and I've tried many similar cocktails. This one beats them all. The Sea Bass is wonderful and again prepared perfectly. Service and cleanliness is over the top. We will always return for a nice meal at McAdoo's anytime in the area... long drive from Houston but just may be worth the trip.
