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

Always enjoy this place they have a great menu selection along with live local music. And they have some of the best crawfish in town.

Whether or not you're a listener of Louisiana music, this place is a real cultural experience. You'll be hard pressed to find more authentic Cajun music, and it's played most every night of the week. The food looks good, and although we came for drinks and music, we sampled a few a la carte items. While the small portion of... More

This is my first visit to Louisiana, and Randol's is exactly what I envisioned the deep South to be like. Great cajun food, fun dancing, a wonderful environment in which to spend a warm summer evening. The wait staff was fantastic. I had the chicekn and sausage gumbo, BBQ shrimp and of course, bread pudding for dessert. I highly recommend!

On our first night in Lafayette we wanted something authentic Louisiana with music. The hotel desk clerk recommended Randol's. It's certainly different but really, lots of fun. If you're looking for refined, romantic or classy, this isn't it. But if you want a rollicking down-home Cajun experience, this is the place for you. Good meal (and we didn't even get... More

The fried seafood was expensive and bland. The French fries were cold and hard. The fries sitting under the lamp at Burger King taste better. I will never return! Prejean's or Pat's is where I should have gone!!!!

Checked to see where a good place to go was and am so happy we found Randols. Gator bites were awesome. All the food was great. Service was perfect! Watching the dancing was fun. Only drawback would be it was loud and somewhat hard to talk, but not totally irritating like some places. Next road trip it will surely be... More

This is a dance hall and a restaurant, with the dance area separated from the restaurant by a glass wall. While eating, you can see the dancing and hear the music just fine. Oddly, there were a couple of TVs showing a band and dancing, but who knows where that was because it wasn't what was going on at the... More

While visiting Lafayette recently someone recommended Randol's and we were not disappointed. The service was prompt and friendly, and the Cajun dishes were tasty. Maybe best of all was the zydeco band on stage and the crowded dance floor – crowded enough to try a Cajun 2-step without worrying about missteps!
