McAdoos is one of our all time favorite restaurants in New Braunfels. However, they are not serving their fabulous rolls & have cut down on their portions. We will continue to go there, but it's not the same, hence the four star rating.

I had lunch at McAdoo's today for a work function. I had Cajun enchiladas. There were two of them and they were awfully small. The cream sauce was a bit pasty, but the flavor was good. My wife had the fried shrimp and catfish. That's what I should have ordered. It was really good! Service was great and the atmosphere... More

It truly is the best seafood in NB, but when they changed owners a few years ago they raised the prices a little higher than the food is worth. The brunch is delicious and it's really the only reason we go there now. The Bloody Mary bar is absolutely delicious with a variety of offerings.

Had lunch with family and was pleasantly surprised. My Mother saw a show featuring this place so agreed to meet her there...cool location in the old post office. Started with a Texas Mule cocktail, which was really good. Had the mixed seafood skewer which had shrimp and mahi-mahi with mushrooms and bell peppers. Super flavorful and the bed of dirty... More

McAdoo's is one of our favorites. The food is fantastic - especially the raw oysters and gumbo, and they have an excellent bar - the Macatini is my wife's favorite drink in New Braunfels.

Located in the old New Braunfels post office, which is BTW the first federal building built in Texas in 1915, is nothing short of simply amazing. Who would've thunk you could get excellent, fresh seafood in Central Texas. Well, here you can. Prices are a little higher but you pay for quality. Patio is beautiful, staff is friendly, service is... More

A local advised us to eat at McAdoo's in fact she met us there. Amazing food, 'cheese grits with grilled shrimp' Best ever, and my husband had rainbow trout. Extensive menu which makes it hard to decide. The rehabbed old post office is an magnificent building that utilizes pieces of the past with a modern twist. Don't pass this one... More

McAdoo's never fails to please! You're missing out if you don't start off with their Seafood Fondue, and their Shrimp & Cheese Grits always hit the spot. (You'll need a to go box)

My favorite restaurant in New Braunfels. It's not cheap but you pay for quality. The happy hour is very reasonable though.

Food is excellent and so is the service. However in the front room it is noisy and difficult to carry on a conversation. It is not cheap to eat there but it is nice for a special occasion
