First time there and the food was excellent. Despite of being seated outside after I mentioned to the host we preferred inside cause it was hot and humid. Our server was very nice.

The patio is excellent and we really enjoyed our Sunday brunch experience. Loved the Crab cakes benedict as well as the mimosas. It's an excellent place to eat and they took seriously their covid19 precautions. A unique place not to be missed!

Birthday celebration. Lobster bisque was delicious. The seafood “fondoo” was so good, it should be an entree! The scallops were tender and buttery but the shrimp was a bit tough. The Chilean seabass was cooked to perfection and the bread pudding was delightful. Service was exceptional, a big shoutout to Hannah. Restaurant was clean and overall experience a pleasant one. Looking forward to our next visit.

We enjoy the outdoor seating especially now. The waiter was very attentive and careful to properly wear her mask. Tables were well spaced and they did not clutter the area with blocked off tables like some places will do. I spelt very safe. With the scene set, we enjoyed two hours of food and drinks and forgot about all our worries for awhile. Well done McAdoos!

I love the building this restaurant is in and the service was very good. While the Caesar salad was good, my entree was mediocre at best, and at $28 a little pricey. I had the blackened redfish pontchartrain. The sauce was grey looking, bland, and had almost no crab. Pre-COVID, the food was better so I’m hoping the quality of the food will improve once this is over.

My wife and I were celebrating our 14th Anniversary. The experience was fantastic. Though I was a little disappointed that they didn’t do anything special for the occasion, though I told them in advance, and they said they do…
The food and service were superb!!!

Personally it was warm inside, but that might’ve been me. I feel the food was good, but nothing that made me go “wow!”. Would I go again, yes I would and I plan to.

Outstanding menu, and every one of our choices was excellent. Good selection of cocktails. Service was excellent. I appreciated the restaurant's efforts to maintain social distancing and staff were consistently masked. Highly recommend the Chilean sea bass and the seafood "fondoo" (no, that's not a typo).

We had a great experience at McAdoo's! We arrived about 30 min earlier than our reservation time so we were allowed to get a drink at the bar and either wait outside or at the booths at the bar. We were served warm bread with butter with our wine at the bar while we waited. We were seated within 15 minutes and had a great, attentive server. We had the calamari as an appetizer, which was soft and not at all chewy, and was very tasty. I ordered the Cajun pasta-delicious! My husband tried a popular menu item - the Mahi Mahi Boudreaux and the presentation was wonderful and the dish was very flavorful and tasty. The ambiance for this restaurant is the best - upscale but casual. We saw families, friends, and couples all enjoying dinner or drinks on a weeknight. We were dressed casually and fit right in, while some others were a little more dressed up and looked just as comfortable. If we return to New Braunfels or ever make a recommendation for dinner - McAdoo's is a must!

If you love seafood this is the place. As a retired letter carrier for the USPS, I always get a kick out of eating in an old post office. The character of the building itself makes you want to have a group get together there. The outside patio area is really neat. Just this year my wife and I celebrated our 29 year anniversary and her birthday there. Go for it!

Awesome food and service! The fondue we had was exceptional. We also had several of the shrimp cocktails and the shrimp were huge but not tough. Very succulent. One of our party had the oysters on the half shell and he raved about them. Since we were a table of 4 we each had different plates and it is hard to believe but after all the appetizers we all finished our plates. We will be back to try something different and this time I think we will all share our plates!

McAdoo's is always a favorite place for us to go and dine out on extraordinary food. Sitting on the patio just makes it that much more pleasurable. The service is top notch and they are careful to protect their guests as much as possible during the COVID outbreak. I would recommend McAdoo's to anyone who wants to enjoy a wonderful dining experience.

We sat outside and, as expected in Texas in August, it was very hot. There was a ceiling fan above us but it didn’t put out much of a breeze. Otherwise, everything was excellent...both the food and the service from our waitperson Chris.
