Good seafood

McAdoo's is a Cajun-style seafood company much in the vein of regional powerhouse Papadeaux Seafood. Seafood gumbo was good -- with lots of crab and shrimp and my Asian sea bass was well cooked with a nice topping (though a little sweet). Had a taste of the lobster bisque too, which was creamy, but... read more

This restaurant may be the finest in New Braunfels. The beer garden/dining area, the inside of the restaurant, and the fine food make this a favorite. I would say the menu is similare to Papadeaux's Seafood we frequented in Houston and everything we have had is really outstanding. The wait staff is excellent and typically there is some live music... More

The food was very good.. The fondue appetizer was really tasty. My son had the Almond Crusted Flounder, which came with a lot of crab meat. Tilapia was also very good.

We had a very pleasant dining experience. The food was well prepared and tasted like we were in New Orleans. Our next visit will be for lunch!

Another very popular place where they don't accept reservations. We ate in an outdoor patio, somewhat comfortable. Not too quiet because of the live music but during breaks we could carry on conversations. Some of the best seafood I have eaten. Highly recommended.

This is where we go for birthdays and when we have special guests in from out of town. Upscale and impressive atmosphere compared to the touristy places around New Braunfels and Gruene. I've never had bad service there, lunch or dinner. I love the muffaletta and my husband loves the crawfish enchiladas. Really they have a great menu selection. The... More

Ate dinner at Macs yesterday. First thing I noticed was that the parking lot was not packed, which was always the case. We ordered a dozen gulf oysters on the half shell. I don't believe we were served gulf oysters because of the tiny, tiny morsels inside the small shells. No taste either. I ordered crab cakes which, on our... More
