We stopped in and had the best Bloody Mary and crab artichoke dip. Service was great and the atmosphere was awesome with oyster bar.

Great place, excellent cocktails and wine list. The Belgian beer is good too. Been there 4 times in December. If you go have the seafood fondue it is to die for. The oysters on the half shell and the crab cakes are delicious as well....More

Great food, service and atmosphere! Can’t say enough good things about it. When I was little, this was the Post Office in New Braunfels. The Wiggins did an amazing job in preserving the history.

The restaurant is in the old Post Office building which creates a great ambiance. The menu is wide with a mostly Cajun slant. Crab cake appetizer is first class, as is lobster bisque and shrimp and grits. Will come back again (and again).

We dined at McAdoos Sunday evening. There were actually 5 missteps (incorrect entree and improperly prepared) between the kitchen and the waiter for our party of 3. The manager came over to speak with us and could not have been more aloof or disingenuous. Her...More

Situated in the old New Braunfels Post Office building, McAdoo's pulls in the customers, visitors and "locals" to enjoy great seafood....and other goodies. Situated just off the "Square"...brief walk from downtown and well worth it!

What a marvelous surprise McAdoo's was! My daughter and son-in-law were visiting from Scotland where they had treated me with some delightful food. I was so happy that I could take them to a fine place here in Texas. There is absolutely nothing wrong with...More

Look at their posted menu. I didn’t order gluten free so I’m not much help on that one. The waitress did tell me they had it.
