Felt like a vacation

We ate on the patio during a downpour. There was live music and a festive atmosphere. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us good advice for ordering. We enjoyed the food and the drinks. What a nice surprise!

I was really pleased with the service and the food. I had called in advance to reserve a table, our table was ready when we arrived and the wait staff was very capable and punctual. The food was quite delicious. I would definitely go back to this restaurant.

The food at this restaurant is OK but not great. I ordered Shrimp Brochette and the bacon seemed undercooked. The margarita I ordered was tasteless and had virtually no alcohol in it. Overall we were pretty disappointed.

I've eaten here about 6 times in the past eight months. Every time I've been here it was for business. Service has always been good and we always have the Taste of Louisiana appetizers (very good). The seafood Alfredo has always been good but sends me into carb overload. The serving is so large that it is difficult to eat... More

Great hushpuppies!! I love those fried balls of goodness. Some things are hit or miss or just so-so, but overall a good option

Had a great dinner at Lufkin, Tx I shared a seafood platter and it was more than enough. Every meal comes with dinner rolls that are delicious...also the wait staff are very friendly.

I've eaten at R&K in the French Quarter so many times I cant count and Ive never been disappointed. That being said, I was terribly disappointed. Granted this right off a main road and easy to get to but really not the best food in Lufkin. Not the best seafood even. Portions were small and prices were rather high. Not... More

We usually eat here three or four times a week. We love the food, it's always consistent. The staff has always been polite and at tentative. Dan always goes the little extra mile to know their customers are always satisfied. All the servers are great.the place is clean and a good atmosphere.

Had heard good things about this place, so I thought I'd give it a shot. It's a chain, but a small one, so I figured we'd be in for something a step up. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't outstanding. I had the seafood platter which was certainly large on portions, but just about middle of the road on... More
