Lunch at one of our favorite spot

Will usually eat here 3 or 4 times a week. We love the food here and the servers are always polite and very efficient.the place is always clean. Dan the manager goes out of his way for people and it's great to see people who care.

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

I really liked the food and atmosphere at the Ralph & Kacoo's restaurant in Lufkin TX. The combo of catfish strips and shrimp was very good - cooked just right, with perfect seasoning. I feel that the prices were a bit on the high side.

R&C in Lufkin is one of the best Cajun and seafood restaurants in the area. Food is very good and flavorful. I got the Crawfish dinner - fired and etoufee. It was excellent. My wife got the fried shrimp and they were also excellent. Atmosphere is very nice and wait staff was on the spot and courteous.

Have been wanting to try this restaurant and am glad we did. Got seated right away, our waitress was superb! Warm, delicious bread was brought to the table initially. Our entrees were fried crawfish tails along with crawfish étouffée, and sirloin steak with Cajun baked potatoe and green beans. The crawfish tails were fresh, plump and delicious! The etoufee was...

This restaurant was one of the finest that I have ever eaten when it first opened many years ago. Today it has less food portions and higher prices. The atmosphere is fantastic though with many aquariums to view while dining.

Last time we ate at this place the food didn't have any flavor and the fried entrees were soggy. We were very disappointed.
