Nothing spectacular although they do have a band every night

We tried two different apps (crab claws and boudin balls) and neither one was that great. For this area I feel you have to be great at seafood to compete and this place wasn't... read more

We tried two different apps (crab claws and boudin balls) and neither one was that great. For this area I feel you have to be great at seafood to compete and this place wasn't. From the outside it looked like a low lit, run down strip club from the 80s. With all the new bright and new restaurants blocks around... More

The music and option to dance really is what made this a fabulous night out. The food was good...but I didn't find it superior to anyplace else. It is a very casual place and I enjoyed the atmosphere.

We meet some friends every year in Louisiana since it is the midpoint between us. We were hoping to find live music and we had a real challenge doing that in Lafayette surprisingly. We searched a bit ended up at the Blue Moon but left soon after arriving because the music started late, cover charge and it was hot! We... More

We were in Lafayette for the first time, mainly to visit family, but went out by ourselves to experience some Cajun food, music, and dancing. Randol's was recommended as one of the best places so we had high hopes. We like to be near the music while we eat, and we love to dance, but we were not able to... More

We were on a Cosmos coach tour and Barbara, the tour director arranged this night out for us. Not everyone on the coach went but they were the losers (and we told them so the very next day - they were miserable all trip so no surprises really!). Barbara had also organised to professional Creole dancers to teach us a... More

We stopped here to try crawfish for the first time. I loved their crawfish. They offer baked potatoes and corn as sides. We also had Crocodile boudins? Food was delicious and service was good and fast.

We did not eat here, but came to hear Live Cajun music and dance. Everyone we asked about music told us to come here. This did not disappoint! Large dance floor, excellent Cajun music. We had a great time.

Service was slow and haphazard. Server couldn't figure out how to divide the bill equally between two couples! Food was mediocre at best. My crawfish enchiladas were either microwaved OEM simply overcooked as the tortillas were like shoe leather. The crawfish tasted old and musty and the small pile of mixed vegetables came right out of the freezer: soft and... More

We really enjoyed our meal while watching the band and dancing. We weren't brave enough to join in the dancing, but tried lots of different things on the menu. If you are only in town for one night, we would definitely recommend Randol's.

Food and music, southern style! Great, wholesome entertainment for the whole family. We had a huge feed of crawdads, raised right on the premises by the family business, besides our fabulous meal. The menu consisted of crabmeat, shrimp, catfish or chicken breast. Service was second to none, as the servers were run off their feet in a hall filled with... More
