No delay taken to table due to reservations which are recommended. Menu assortment is wide enough for every taste, service was timely and minimum wait for food service. Good follow up for drink refresh. Quick delivery of check and quick cashiering. We will return

Love this place. Wonderful people, good food. Great drinks. Awesome ambiance.
They do a good job with Louisiana-inspired dishes. Very consistent.
My go-to place for New Braunfels, for employee luncheons and business meetings.

I love McAdoo’s. Took the family for the first time and they loved it too. Great menu. U won’t have a problem finding something to eat. Fresh seafood is always good. I usually get the seafood tower salad. Historic post office building well being taken in care of here.

Food is always good. Service was not as good as usual. We sat in the bar because it was quieter, but our waitress ended up being the bartender and I had to go up to the bar to get refills and check. Not the norm.

Good variety on menu. Food was just average and lukewarm. Ordered crab dip appetizer and it was barely warm and too cheesy. Enchiladas were very sour creamy and too cheesy. Definitely would not order again. Fried catfish and shrimp was just ok. Would not choose it again either. Wait staff was friendly, but very young and inexperienced. Probably would not eat here again.

The night (Monday) started with a long wait for our appetizer...apparently, the kitchen was not prepared for the first night of "Spring Break" diners. The waitperson was flustered by the situation, but recovered...manager comp-ed the appetizer. Entrees were very good...crawfish platter was a nice size of fried tails, etoufee and dirty rice. The setting is very attractive, a restored post office.

We live in NB and frequent McAdoos, it was hit or miss for a while, but the last two times we have gone the food was outstanding! I had oysters on the half shell, VERY GOOD, and also had their boiled crawfish, hands down BEST crawfish I had ever had and they are made to order so alive shortly after they arrive at your table. My only complaint is certain menu items are priced way too high such as their king crab legs 1 pound for close to $50 I think that’s a bit ridiculous but the crawfish was $10 a pound and the oysters are reasonable my recommendation is to go during their lunch hour. Otherwise service was great and the food was fantastic !

Ordered crawfish & paid a high price for them, but they were all large sized & well seasoned & cooked. I like how they plate the crawfish with a stainless steal cover to keep them hot. House margaritas were well made too.

We have always enjoyed the food at McAdoo's. The service is usually just as good. That's why we were extremely disappointed with our last visit. We were in New Braunsfels celebrating our son-in-law's birthday. We wanted to give him a special birthday dinner and we thought of McAdoo's. We had plans for after dinner, which we made the waiter aware of right away. It took over 20 minutes to receive our raw oysters order and then another 30 minutes to get our meal. I was very embarrassed when everyone at the table received their food except for him. The service was so bad that the manager agreed to comp our entire check. That was certainly nice however, my son-in-law, who the dinner was in honor of, never got to eat. I really hope this was an isolated incident!
