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

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!!!!
