Let it be known that I am not a fan of seafood. I can tolerate Shrimp but that is about it. Some friends invited us to McAdoo's and my first impression was "oh no, not seafood". I buckled under pressure and it might just be the best move I have made in a long time. First of all the restaurant... More

I love the lettuce wedge salad with lots of bacon crumbles and bleu cheese dressing. Appetizers are excellent also, there is a seafood appetizer served with toast that is excellent, seafood gumbo is very good, oysters on the half shell-great. Of course the full meals are wonderful also, but sometimes I just like an appetizer and salad. A bit expensive,... More

The Food is good, but for the prices they charge I would rather drive to Pappadeaux's in San Antonio.

We went on a Friday night just wanting to try a new place. The menu was pricey, with the cheapest plate around $17-18 dollars. There was a large selection including appetizers and desserts: as well as a bar. The plates only came with one side which was kind of disappointing. We arrived shortly before 7:00 pm and weren't seated for... More

This is a really nice spot in downtown New Braunfels. Parking is good and it is easy to find. The food good, though the menu is fairly limited. The bar makes a nice cocktail. The service ranges from very good to excellent. We enjoy McAdoos, especially with a group of friends.

Extensive seafood menu. Large selection of various oysters. We stopped by for oysters on the half shell and were offered over a dozen varieties and they were fresh and delicious, but a bit pricy. We finished with sautéed soft shell crab which was excellent. Great service by Tanner and the remainder of the staff. Go early for Happy Hour as... More

Discover downtown New Braunfels! This is a wonderful restaurant with darn good food in a historic building. DATE NIGHT? Yes! The seafood fondue is NOT to be missed... low calorie? Not so much... but if you are willing to splurge, this is this dish for you. We order it as an entree because it is SO delicious and filling. They... More
