Consistently great food, consistently bad service.

My wife and I have been here 5 times over the last 4 years and there are 2 constants: consistently great food, consistently bad service. Servers are painfully slow and inattentive, often failing to mention daily specials, or offer up new menu items. (we learned they have oysters off the menu on our... read more

went in with a good mood but left disappointed. A busy Saturday so we opted to order at the bar since there was plenty of space there. That turned out to be our mistake. Bartenders were way to busy to try to serve food plus all their chit chat with friends. Our food took over an hour to get to... More

Great atmosphere and super tasty food. The restored building, outside dining, creative menu and friendly staff make this a top place to dine. Each visit has brought consistent good food, service, choices and ambiance.

everything from sangria, seafood fondue, and any entree is delicious. Never had a bad experience there. Sitting outside is nice if weather permits!

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner at McAdoo's. My husband who is a chef and together we manage a restaurant together, we very impressed with not one single complaint. We enjoyed four courses, which were all prepared to perfection. We had great service enjoying every one of the servers reccomendations. The atmosphere and decor were delightful. We... More

Food was good but a bit different approach from authenic cajun. Gumbo was just ok and the enchiladas were soggy and oversauced. Service was attentive

Took my friend, a wine maker from Califorina tonight. Great atosmosphere, great service. BUT: my trout which was supposed to be "pan seared" was obviously simply thrown on a pan and then into the "salamander" (broiler blast furnance). No carmelization, no moisture, just a pice of overdone, dry fish that I had to return. I ordered a "Cadallic margaritta". It... More

Excellent atmosphere and tasty food. Service should be better according to the place. Just across the street there is an excellent cupcake and coffee.

Party of 3......2 of the 3 came out wrong - one had the wrong sides, the other had the wrong sides AND entree! But at least the waiter apologized, so everything's okay, right?
