Dinner at McAdoo's was fantastic! Oysters took a while to get but were worth the wait! Seabass was excellent too. Highly recommend

Disappointed with either open table or McAdoo’s not sure which. Making reservation the app asked if it was special occasion. It was 43 anniversary. No one at the restaurant acknowledged information provided or that we requested to sit outside when the reservation was made on line. Why ask for the information if it is not forwarded to restaurant or ignored at restaurant.

We had an amazing evening. Many thanks to our waiter "Tipsy," he was the best ever! He interacted and adapted to the diverse needs of our group with class and style. 🤗
If you haven't, you must dine at McAdoos!

My husband and I went out for dinner at McAdoo's. It was our first time here. We started at the bar for some Happy Hour drinks. The bar has a nice ambiance. There was a variety of drinks. I had a blueberry lemonade that was good. My husband had the house margarita for $4. I ate a half dozen raw oysters (from PEI) that were $3/each. They were good, but a little smaller than other oysters I've had a fine dining/higher end restaurants. We then moved into the main dining room. It had a nice vibe. The dinner menu has a variety of options. My husband enjoyed the lobster bisque. I had the shrimp etoufee. I came with more of a brown gravy sauce when I was expecting something more tomato-based. My husband had the rib-eye steak with mashed potatoes and asked for a side of creamed spinach instead of the broccoli. He enjoyed everything he had. Steak was cooked as ordered (medium). Service was excellent both in the bar area and in dining room. I do wish they would add sauteed sea scallops to the menu. Overall, we both enjoyed our experience at McAdoo's and will be coming back. It has the feeling of a high end seafood/steak house, with food that competes with the same, at reasonable prices. What's not to like?

Our food was cold when served and I suspect was a microwaved Sysco serving. Shrimp cocktail? Not in this seafood restaurant...no shrimp to be had.
Really wish they would indicate what is prepared in the restaurant and what is warmed precooked portions.

The fish was way over cooked and dry. It was supposed to be cajun and had very little seasoning at all. If it was for this “jelly” gravy on the fish , it would not have been edible. I had the redfish pontchartrain . Maybe 3 pr 4 oz. and no more. Extremely small portions. All for 110 dollars . This included tip. I love my fellow Texans from New Braunfels Tx but head to the coast. That is where you will find quality seafood. Oh yea. This is a HIGH END SEAFOOD RESTAURANT, why do they have catfish and talapia. Last time I looked, these fish come out of fresh water not the sea.

The appetizer, fried okra, was messy and hard to eat. Do not recommend it. The roasted potatoes with my Flounder was sort of mushy and not very tasty. Do not recommend it. The Flounder was excellent.

I made a reservation on Open Table ( which I find very efficient) for a Bar Table, which was a selection; only to find out when we checked in with the Hostess, she said sorry, the Bar is all first come first serve. If that’s the case I suggest you take the Bar Table Reservation off your selection choice on Open Table.

I was a little disappointed we order oysters and shrimp they came out late, we felt a little rushed. Salads came out after main meal. I have eaten the shrimp and grits several times this time they put creamed corn on my grits it was very underwhelming.

The food and the waiters were amazing. However, I will advise anyone that makes a reservation to be warned that it may or may not be upheld. I made a reservation for 6:30 pm and I called to advise the restaurant that I would arrive about 5 minutes late. I was informed that it wasn’t a problem and I would still be able to keep my reservation. When I arrived I was informed that I had a 25 minute wait for my table which was not available. In order to avoid driving all over town to find another restaurant or making a 30 minute trip to my home I settled for dining in the bar area which had a table open. Needless to say, it will be a while before I return to McAdoo’s. The awesome waiters and food offset the unpleasant experience with the hostess.

Good restaurant, nice atmosphere, however, food was not equivalent to the price. Salmon and broccoli were barely seasoned and dry. I’ll try another dish before I render my final opinion.
