Great options on the menu. I definitely recommend the Parmesan crusted trout, coconut shrimp and bread pudding. The margaritas were good too! I will visit McAdoo’s again when I’m in town.
Seated promptly. Good waiter. Nice variety of food choices. My salmon was fabulous. Easy to choose wine list. High quality reasonable pricing. Beautiful historic interior . Parking bit of challenge.
We loved the food, service and atmosphere. The buffalo oysters and mahi were amazing!
Just the kind of great first impression that will have me returning over & over - thank you!
We went here for Valentine’s Day. It was overpriced for the food, which was just ok. The waitress wasn’t sure what the special was and couldn’t recommend wine. The atmosphere is nice, but not nice enough that I care to return.
Great service and freshest seafood! Happy hour drinks were also Super!
We had an 8:15 reservation. Got there early and checked in at 7:45. Were told that they would put us at the top of the list. We met another couple in the bar who said they had 7:30 reservations and hadn’t been seated yet. At 8:30, the other couple was seated and invited us to join them at their table because they had room. We were on a date and wanted to be alone but agreed to sit with them as to not be rude and also because we had no idea when we would be seated based on them being seated an hour later than their reservation. We know it was Fat Tuesday but still expected a restaurant who takes reservations to be able to stay on schedule and seat parties who had the forethought to make a reservation versus allowing every walk-in party to get on the list. We go to McAdoo’s quite a bit and this was the first time being disappointed. The food was amazing as always.
Everything was great. We decided to go out the day before Valentine’s Day to miss the crowds and completely forgot it was fat Tuesday! We had to wait next for 20 or so minutes past our reservation time to be seated, but it was understandable. There was quite a crowd. The bar staff seemed a bit overwhelmed and took a long time to get a drink while waiting, probably 15 or so minutes. This is certainly not the typical night I’m sure. When we did get seated our server was amazing food came out quickly and as ordered. All the seafood dishes were on point. If you’re stickler for authenticCajun food, this might not be your place, ( Red beans and rice and gumbo werent bad but they were nothing to write home about either.) but if you want great seafood, and delicious comfort food you will love it.
Great place in New Braunfels to celebrate Mardi Gras!!! We were also celebrating my husband’s 66 birthday.
Good seafood selection, oysters are fresh and tasty.
To dark cant hardly see your food or menu. Need tsome brighter ligjt bulbs or lighting on each table. Sevice is great. The food is normally excellent. I tried something new and it wasn’t what I expected
Food was awesome. Service a little slow. Sat outside and enjoyed the Texas Sun! Bloody Mary Bar was awesome!
I madecreservation. I dont like getting placed in the corner stuck next to someone i dont know. But itcwaa a get-together With Friends so didn't want to complain of that points.... but then I ordered blackened salmon got my plate and it was grilled salmon send it back got the same exact grilled salmon back. My best experience at Macado's
We loved Leslie! She was great!
I had been to McAdoo’s one time before and loved the food and the uniqueness of the decor. For that reason I picked it for our first anniversary celebration. The food was still good but the service really suffered. My hisband’s food was not hot and nothing was even mentioned about it being our anniversary even though I put it on the reservation and we heard someone mention it to a table beside us. The topper was when the waiter spilled a half full drink on my daughter and didn’t even get her another one or in any way apologize. When you’re paying a premium for a specialty drink, something should have been compensated for it.
I will go back probably because I do like the food and the ambiance but I hope the service is better next time.
Great seafood in downtown New Braunfels. Amazing place to celebrate family birthdays
McAdoo’s continues to serve reliable, well prepared seafood mostly for the locals in New Braunfels weary of the recent invasion of chain fare on I-35. Clever atmosphere inside original New Braunfels post office. Recent visit was fine except for incinerated garlic bread that accompanied the seafood fondue. Once pointed out and quickly replaced, all was well!
30-Sec Review: While McAdoo's is classy on all levels, the long wait for food can turn a into a 2 hour dinner. Food is great, drinks are great, oysters are great. Service is better than most, the wait is the only reason I'd consider elsewhere.
Oysters - All were delicious. Literally, we had 4 varieties. No complaints.
Seabass - Tender, moist, superb. Rice was slightly sweet but no issue at all. Overall, yum.
Halibut - No complaints from my tablemates. Flash fried spinach is bomb!
Parmesan Trout - Well cooked, crispy and not dry. Good flavor, lemon dijon sauce was not overly caper-flavored, which I appreciated. Flash fried spinach!!
Mahi-mahi New Orleans - Deliciously grilled, this embodied a yum creole flavor.
As I said, the food was great. But we did wait nearly 1 hour for entrees for our table of 8. It was a big table but certainly 1 hour on a Sunday night was much.
We enjoyed our dinner with friends! Food was delicious and our waitress was helpful and attentive. We will be back!
Dinner was great, a little disappointed they didn’t recognize our anniversary since it was identified on the reservation...
Very disappointed with the quality of the food. Got order wrong and wait time was excessive. They comp’d my wife’s dinner but could not deliver in time.
Family dinner! Mixed bed of appetites and there was something for everyone. Jordan our server did a great job highly recommend for a top notch food night in a relaxed atmosphere
Excellent brunch with an extraordinary make your own Bloody Mary bar. Top notch food and service.
This is a NICE restaurant in a old post office beautifully restored. We all ate seafood and our meals were great.
This was a dinner for six celebrating our 55th anniversary and was disappointed the restaurant didn't recognize that by offering something small.
Overall it was a pleasant evening
Excellent service with Randy
The food is also delicious
Beautiful setting in old post office. The oysters Rockefeller is amazing.
This place was a great find. Quality food, great location and awesome atmosphere!
We celebrated Christmas dinner with family and we were promptly seated at our reservation time. We had very good service and the waitress even volunteered to take our photograph. Our appetizers were delicious and everyone was completely happy with the meal they ordered. I strongly recommend this place for an excellent seafood entree. Price was very reasonable. We will definitely return for lunch or dinner.
