Music was too loud on the porch. Asked to have it reduced without success. We moved to a corner table with limited success.

Our lunch with friends was the first time eating out since before the pandemic. We are now vaccinated so we felt safe. We had lunch in the courtyard which was a wonderful setting. Our waiter was excellent and so was the food. It was a great experience and we plan to go back soon.

Wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. Upon arrival the hostess congratulated us on our anniversary and seated us promptly. The waitress, who was absolutely fantastic, immediately came over of which we had several questions about the menu of which she answered in detail. The food was cooked perfectly and was delicious! We had a great experience at this restaurant and will most definitely return.

We took a houseguest to McAdoo’s for Sunday brunch on a recommendation of a friend. We had a reservation and were seated immediately in their leafy out door/roofed patio. Our server, Travis, was attentive and service was just right. He gave us time to enjoy our drinks before ordering.
The riff on eggs Benedict was the best thing on the brunch menu, which is saying a lot because all of our meals were delicious. It is 2 crab cakes on a thin round of corn bread with poached eggs and remoulade sauce.
The pricing was moderate. The only problem was the very high noise level, due to large parties. Maybe ask to sit where it is typically least noisy.
But don’t miss MCAdoo’s brunch! The oysters are wonderfully fresh too.

Our server, Lacy, was outstanding. Although I ordered the sea bass, it turned out the restaurant was out of it. Lacy recommended the flounder. Turned out is was delicious.

Have been here before and requested a booth for two near the bar. Arrived 20 minutes early on Easter Sunday and was seated immediately. Felt very safe in a corner booth. Waiter was very attentive and food was excellent. We ordered the stuffed flounder, redfish ponchatrain and shrimp cocktail as appetizer.

Excellent as always. We always try to get the Courtyard as the ambiance is great and more relaxing. Our server, Esquipula, was outstanding. Very knowledgeable of the menu items, checked on us with appropriate amount time between, giving us time to enjoy a delightful dinner. They have an amazing oyster bar. The best I have found - great selection. Food is outstanding. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We’ve been here many times before however this was extremely special because we were celebrating being newlyweds. When we first arrived I was scared that has been in the corner would cause our service to not be up to par and that became true I think the lady behind us noticed it too and had asked to be moved but I didn’t want to move because I had hoped it would improve. Like I said we have been there many times before I always order the ribeye and my hubby order something new so having this experience was not our usual however the food was amazing as always and will be back the next time we might speak up about not having a table in the corner. I don’t think I would be commenting however it was a very special occasion,I was even surprised at the waitress didn’t ask or wasn’t told by the hostess that we were celebrating a special occasion. After the meal we left didn’t have dessert because was not wanting to feel ignored anymore, even though we have been there many times before maybe it just wasn’t the right fit for the occasion.

Great food. Nice enough service. Our waiter was just busy which didn’t bother us but may bother some. Still a very loud restaurant and they don’t need to add more noise by playing loud music (not live) over the speakers. That’s a bit much. Otherwise, delicious and will continue going back.

What a treat! More than a few friends have recommended McAdoo's as a great place to eat when in New Braunfels, so we gave it a try on our most recent trip to town. We were not disappointed! The service was great and the food even better. Our reservations made on Open Table were honored and the hostess seemed to appreciate us being on time for our table when she greeted us with a smile. Could not have had a better experience all around. Highly recommend McAdoo's to any visitors to New Braunfels.

The redfish was ridiculously dry and did not have good flavor. My wife’s scallops were not cooked all the way. The chargrilled oysters were alright. If comparing to BR or NO chargrilled oysters you will be sad. They had no butter/sauce at all
