Great Tradition of FREE Dances started by Kathy & Frank Randol. ONLY PLACE that has FREE (no cover) Cajun and other LIVE music SEVEN nights a week, from about 630-930. MANY great bands and Grammy Nominees & Winners have played here. Food varies, but you can't go wrong with boiled seafood. MAIN REASON TO GO: LIVE Cajun, Zydeco, and other... More

Stopped in while passing through Lafayette and was really impressed. Great food and a fun friendly atmosphere! Loved the BBQ shrimp and the desert was to die for!! The band was an added bonus!!

This place has had mixed reviews on this site which is not surprising. The decor is scruffy. The place is basically a large tin shack, which is just fine by me. The music on the evening My daughter and I visited was ok Cajun/country and the band was different from that advertised. However, music quality is always going to vary.... More

My wife and I went here after dinner to hear where zydeco music and have drinks. So, this review does not evaluate their food or the food service. Perhaps because we went on a Monday evening, the place was very quiet. The dance floor was empty and the band was essentially playing to no one. Somewhat odd, was the fact... More

We ate at Randols on a recent trip to Lafayette, on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. The Crawfish Etouffe with Blackened Catfish was exceptional.

On our overnight visit to Lafayette, we went to Randol's after supper to hear some music. It is very much a family place with an acadian band. Lots of dancing and joy. We had a cocktail and the service was very nice. I can't say a thing about the food there, but the atmosphere is over the top Cajun and... More

We arrived in Lafayette on a Sunday evening and asked our concierge for a recommendation for a local restaurant. We were warned that because it was a Sunday, most restaurants were either closed or closed early. So Randol's it was. While we greatly enjoyed the music and watching the dancing, the decor did not match the prices on the menu.... More

I was shocked when I entered this place and not in a good way. I was here years ago in the late 80’s. Then we ate dinner and listened to great Cajun music and watched the dancers. We had a seat at the edge of the dance floor with a great view of the band and dancers. We had a... More

My husband and I were looking forward to an evening out with good food and Cajun music. The crawfish and Thai snapper were excellent. The waitress, Michelle, was a dud. Unfriendly, reluctantly took a picture for us, and had the check on the table before my husband had finished, without asking if we wanted another glass of wine, etc. we... More
