We ate in the big covered outdoor area. The scenery was wonderful, the food was great, and the service was excellent. I love going to the farmer's market and then stopping by McAdoo's for lunch.

Previous two visits were on weekends so it was more crowded and there was live music. We always sit outside. This visit on a Thursday evening wasn't as crowded and no live music. The waiter did turn up the sound for us, good Cajun music...More

Server did not know what seafood was in the gumbo and didn't know if corn or flour tortillas were used for the fish tacos! Food was good!

I had dinner here on 06/13/17 with a friend. The oysters were fresh and tasty. The shrimp cocktail was great with large shrimp. Great for a late afternoon appetizer with friends.

Super fine food. Ask for Eric at the front desk and tell him Tom sent you. Ask him what the "off menu black market entrees" are for a special treat. Then you'll be like a local.

I was in the area and heard this was a cajun place so decided to go check it out. It is definitely a lot more than that! First off, the space is really cool, especially the bar. They've got local drafts that were very tasty...More
