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

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!
