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+.

My wife and I, we love this place! It has been a few years since we have vacationed here in New Braunfels. We were excited to try this place again and it is still great. Great gumbo! And everyone knows if the cook can cook gumbo, he/she is a great cook.

Being relatively new to Texas, we found McAdoo's an excellent restaurant. Courteous staff and great food. Restaurant is located in an old Post Office. Will definitely be back.

Our twin grandsons love seafood--so they really enjoyed this place. It's located in the restored New Braunfels post office-so that is really cool.

My friend invited me to lunch in New Braunfels and said we have to try this place. I was not disappointed. It's in the old Post Office Building. And not just your average boring place to eat. A return visit for sure.
