The food was not as good as it used to be. I ordered a seafood salad, which previously was delicious with lots of seafood. This time, it was just ok and a significantly smaller portion. One of the members of my party got shrimp and grits and said it was much too salty (and she is one who enjoys a salty flavor). The other got a seafood omelet and said it was ok, not good or great, just ok. A little disappointing.

The quality of the seafood and ambiance of the restaurant is enjoyable. The patio especially looked very inviting. The seasoning of the food is less authentic to the Gulf Coast (per our experience). For us, we expected a spicier blackened fish, a different dressing on seafood salad than a tartar like sauce. Our child's fried catfish was seasoned to everyone's liking. Overall, we would definitely come again but alter orders slightly to accommodate our taste preferences.

Excellent seafood. Their fish is always incredibly fresh and worth the wait. Seating outside was nice and not too noisy. Great place for a great meal. They never disappoint!

With COVID-19 spikes we were not going to be able celebrate 50th anniversary like most people meeting this milestone. But we love McAdoos and the evening couldn’t have been nicer. Invited a long time friend couple to join us. Our server was delightful, food was good (was not as hot as I might have liked.. but not cold either) and patio seating well thought out. Would certainly recommend!

Every time we have out-of-state guests, we take them to McAdoo's for Sunday brunch, if possible. Even in COVID times, the Bloody Marys were spectacular. Our guests, without saying so out of consideration for us, are amazed that we have this quality dining experience in New Braunfels at a reasonable cost. A tremendous value for us living here.

We were on a glorious date night with tickets to a production at Circle Arts Theater. (Thanks Robin and cast for a very spooky and scary performance. We arrived with reservations and were seated promptly and our wait person was very prompt and attentive. We started with an appetizer of crab cakes. Shortly there after our main course dishes arrived. After a delicious meal we capped it off with Key Lime pie. A very lovely meal and evening with very gracious hosts. We will be back. Oh by the way, we were the best dressed couple in the place.

The hostess was horrible and unfriendly. We have been long time customers and never had a bad experience until now. We hate to judge on one bad experience when past has been good, but the hostess was so rude that we might not return.

We made our reservation through Open Table. It asked if we were celebrating a special ocassion. It was our 2nd wedding anniversary. When we arrived, the very young hostess went to seat us at a table in the middle of the restaurant, even though we had requested a booth. The restaurant was not busy on a Tuesday evening at 6:15pm. When we again requested a booth, she placed us a booth between the kitchen and the door leading to the outside patio. There were other booths against the wall that were open. We waited for 10 minutes, before we had to get up and ask the hostess to send our server over. At this point my wife was ready to leave and go to Myron's right down the street. Our waiter was in training and introduced himself and told us who the waiter was that was training him (who never even checked on us). We ordered drinks from the bar and an appetizer. After the appetizer came we ordered our entrees. The food was outstanding as always. Before my wife was even finished eating, they started to clear the table and ask if we wanted desert. Then we were asked if the check should be together or separate! We definitely felt rushed. We were in and out in less than an hour for anniversary dinner. And no mention of our anniversary at all. I surely hope that management adresses these issues as I would hate for anyone else to have this experience.

We have to been to McAdoos many times and have had excellent food and service. This last time was the worst it’s ever been. In fact, the food and the service were so bad, we won’t be going back anytime soon. We expect better from a place that we could always trust and for the price that you pay.

5 Stars on Food & Service but gave it 4 Stars due to much smaller drinks with little alcohol! Worst Cosmo I’ve had and I always get those there served in little tiny glasses! Same with Martini & gin & tonic. Margarita was too sweet not enough tequila.
Sea Bass was had by 3 of us EXCELLENT!!! Best we’ve ever had!
Shrimp & grits were good. Salads were good. Fix the drinks issues & 5 Stars!!

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.
