Upscale Family Dining serving fresh seafood with a Cajun influence located in the historic post office building in the heart of Downtown New Braunfels.
Have eaten here twice in one week. The service, the food the atmosphere is incredible. My favorite place to eat anywhere.
Love the seafood fondue!!
Great food and our whole party enjoyed the evening
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!
Its a great place to get yummy seafood. Their fondue dip is phenomenal!!
This restaurant never fails to please. Excellent food, good service, nice ambiance, lots of college students hired to serve and seat. The very best restaurant in New Braunfels.
Took my mom here for her birthday brunch. The crab cake Benedict and migas were amazing.
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!
The food was good and the service was outstanding. They changed the recipe on one of my favorite dishes which is the only drawback.
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 celebrated my Mother-in-Law's 80th Birthday on the patio with her grandchildren...such great service and a beautiful day is now a lovely memory.
Excellent evening I was able to propose to my fiance! And was given a complimentary bottle of Moet! Such perfect night! Oh and the food was EXCELLENT!!!
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.
First time there. Was awesome! Food, drinks, service. We will be returning
Music was loud which made it harder to talk.
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 a reservation for 12 outside and got seated at 12:25 inside.
Great food. Love the seafood fondue and Chilean Sea Bass. Great happy hour prices.
It was a very nice dinner! We enjoyed it a great deal. We were celebrating a birthday and she really enjoyed the experience! We will be back!
Outstanding service and phenomenal food! Would go back in a minute!! Creole cuisine dishes (Redfish Pontchatrain) was unbelievably good.
Food was fresh and delicious. Highly recommend!!
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.
Celebrated my son's 21st birthday--McAdoo's is one of his favorite places. The food was fabulous as it always is and we had fun family time!
We sat on the patio for dinner. It’s absolutely beautiful! Great service & great food. I’m hoping the full menu comes back soon.
Outstanding service, food, and atmosphere! Chloe was an outstanding waittress! Well worth the trip!
Great food! Excellent service!
McAdoo's is my favorite restaurant; service, ambiance & food are always superb!! Whenever my friends or family ask where we should go for lunch or dinner--they know my answer will be "McAdoo's"!!
Staff was wonderful and the food excellent
Everything was really nice. Server was attentive and knew when to come by. No awkward interruptions. Food was fresh, seasoned just right and served piping hot. Attention to detail was noticed and appreciated. First class evening. Can’t wait to go back!
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.
The outdoor patio is amazing. Comfortable and beautiful. Service and food beyond compare.
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!!
McAdoos is one of our favorite places. we love the ambience and the food is fantastic
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!
This is a great restaurant for all seafood lovers!
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.
