Originally this restaurant was great. The atmosphere is still really good with nice outdoor seating and a great bar. The food has gone down somewhat. It's more bland now and doesn't seem to be as fresh.

First visit - was expecting atmosphere on par with Myron's next door. Definitely not! (My fault for not checking beforehand.) More of a very casual family atmosphere - kind of like a Gristmill but inside. So I won't fault them for my ignorance. That being said - the table (no tablecloths) was sticky, the silverware wasn't as clean as I'd... More

Nice atmosphere , Crab Cakes and Bloody Mary's also good. The Gumbo was bland and had a new penny colored roux which didn't do it any justice. Shrimp and Cheese Grits very tasty. Arrived around 2pm on a Saturday and there wasn't a wait .

My husband had shrimp and grits and said it was better than the fare he had in New Orleans. We have had seafood that is out of this world. I was a bit disappointed in their salad with shrimp and lobster. For the price, it was very skimpy with no dressing offered, and no other veggies, mostly plain lettuce. I... More

New Braunfels is noted for German food & culture, typified by Wurstfest. But this place has terrific, fresh seafood and Cajun dishes and the atmosphere is excellent. We've eaten in the main dining area and in the bar. Both are perfect for whatever mood you're in. It's a refurbished old post office and has a laid back atmosphere even when... More

My friends and I tried this restaurant last night and it was the worst service I have ever had. I do not think that their wait staff is trained on how to handle groups larger than 4-5 people. we were a group of 10. The staff could not get anything right from the beginning. The bartender on the patio did... More

Great seafood in a historic building. The atmosphere is awesome with a very accommodating efficient staff. The seafood was fresh and very tasty. We had fried shrimp, catfish & jambalaya. Everything was amazing. I cant wait to bring my family back for dinner.

Away from I-35 and downtown in old Post Office building, this restaurant is a great alternative to the fast food and various local ethnic foods so popular in the area. Everything I have eaten there the three visits I have made was super. Try the grilled oysters and the seafood enchiladas with crawfish and avocados. Fresh fish prepared in several... More

YES! When we were following the map to McAdoo's we saw this elegant old building and realized it was restored as a restaurant. The atmosphere in the old post office is just amazing as this building maintains the grandeur of times gone by. Our large group of 14 people were escorted to a side dining area, perfect for our group... More

McAdoo's had a rocky start several years ago (the roux was burnt in the etouffee). Since then, they have improved nicely. Service is average+.
