    Our table was to be ready in 30 minutes, so we thought we'd have a drink at the bar while we waited. We were told we could sit and a staff member would be right with us. That did not occur, went to bar and ordered myself. We received text that our table was ready...after 30 minutes...still no drinks. Bar was NOT that busy. Food was meh. Loud environment. Waiter was nice enough, but couldn't hear us over the noise. And again, it was a Wednesday night...not super busy. Would not return based on this experience.

    First time visiting and found the whole experience outstanding!! Oysters were fresh and bright while the seafood fondue, Chilean Sea Bass and Stuffed Flounder were spectacular. Great Bloody Mary as well!! We will be back!

    McAdoo's service is friendly and helpful, but they were a little short-handed on the Friday evening we were there. A manager was helping out so wait staff could "catch up". Food was good as always, and drinks were on point. If you want a romantic date or a quiet place to have a conversation, this is not it. The noise level is high inside the restaurant or bar area. If you can get a booth for two across from the oyster bar, or out on the covered patio, it is better.

    Food and Service were excellent. We really enjoyed our one hour. It was hard to believe we were only there an hour because nothing about our experience felt rushed. Food is pricey but their food is not the usual foods. Much better prepared and tasty than your normal (cheaper) restaurant.

    Our server did a great job in allowing us time to enjoy the occasion. The food was great! We would both order our dishes again. Service from the bar was a bit slow and, with the high ceilings, it is a bit noisy.

    it’s a very upscale restaurant with seafood. i usually don’t like fish, but it is cooked very well there. however, you will spend almost $100 for very few plates. i would recommend again, but i wouldn’t go too often because of the price

    Some changes on the menu since our last visit. I tried the Mahi Mardi Gras. Fish was very good and fresh. The Brussels sprouts were great, but the jambalaya unfortunately needs an overhaul. There was no good Cajun flavor and the sausage was frankly weird and unpleasant. Oysters Rockefeller were very good. Overall a positive dining experience.

    Our first server gave us the experience of Dick's Last Resort. She even blessed our water carafe with putting her fingers in the carafe. We asked for the manager and had her switched out after that debacle of rudeness. She was by far the rudest server I've ever encountered here in Texas and I was born and raised here. Bless her heart she must not be from Texas originally because we treat people with graciousness and hospitality not venom. Anyhow our new server was such a sweet young man and helpful with the menu selections. We love creole food and we're hoping it would be just as good as places we've been to in Louisiana but we were let down by the Étouffée. For what we paid we expected more of a great experience and it unfortunately didn't live up to the hype online.

    It was a 5-star experience @mcadoosnb for lunch today. It was the second time for my husband and I to visit but Dad's first time. The patio dining is awesome since it's covered and full of fans and misters. Not a chance to feel the Texas heat! My husband had the Postmaster Hurricane and I had their famous Bloody Mary. Such great drinks! My husband had the Seafood Gumbo Cup topped with crab meat. We shared a dozen of East coast oysters - Misty Point and Malpaque. We also had the Coconut Shrimp as appetizer. My husband had the Seabass which was a lot of fish so perfectly cooked. Dad and I shared the Shrimp & Crawfish Etoufee. It was the perfect meal! Gernizia was such an attentive server, we were taken good care of. So full that we had a light dinner. If you've never been to @mcadoosnb, make your reservations through Open Table soon!

    We LOVE McAdoos. Friendly wait staff, good food/drinks, great atmosphere. 2 issues: 1) Noise level makes it extremely difficult to carry on a conversation with the person next to you, let alone hear anything being said by others at your table. Very loud background music contributes to this problem and nothing to absorb any sound. 2) Slowest drink service anywhere. It takes forever to get a mixed drink from the bar & your table’s waitstaff cannot bring you your drinks, always comes from someone at the bar. Even for a bottle of beer! It’s not the bartenders. I’ve seen them in action & they never stop moving/making drinks. Need to come up with a better drink service plan or get more bartenders on staff!

    The fish was very good but overpriced. The crab cakes were not very good and had too much filler and not enough crab. The crab cakes were over priced for the amount crab that is used. The bread served with the grilled oysters. The grilled and raw oysters were very good.

    Excellent food and service as always. The menu has changed since the last time we ate here, the almond crusted flounder was divine, but I didn't care for the couscous (lacked flavor) or broccolini (undercooked for my liking) that accompanies it now. The seafood stuffed flounder was delicious. I will of course be back, but will change the side with my flounder.

    We had a table of drunk people. They were very loud and even sang songs that were somewhat obscene. I asked them to bring the noise down and they did. Very disappointed in the management letting let this happen.
