Good Seasfood

The food at this establishment is very good. The seasoning is well distributed and plentiful; no need for extra salt/pepper. The service was excellent. My cup never got to 1/2 empty.

By far the worst service and management in Lufkin Texas! All I can say is the management does not care about customers, and the service is the slowest around! I will never give that place a chance again I have given them way too many already, do not waste your time or money there.

Six of us dined at this restaurant from entering to leaving we had exceptional service, the steaks are in my opinion the best in Lufkin and if your in the area don't miss out on this dining experience. Colin and Shirley

This is my first trip to Lufkin, but not a stranger to cajun food. When given the chance I will always make selections based on the menu. The Ralph & Kacoo's location does a great job in providing good food and service. I had the catfish cocodrie and it was awesome. If I come back to Lufkin again, a trip... More

We enjoyed our meal very much. We shared an order of home made onion rings, and the grilled shrimp with steamed vegetables. It was all very tasty. The hot rolls melted in our mouths. We were quite full! Our server was friendly and kept our water glasses filled.

The mixed reviews on this place truly puzzled me. Many of the reviews give it four or five stars while some reviews give it one or two. With that being said, I will take the average of them all. I'm going three stars. The fried seafood is average to slightly better than average. My business partner said the grilled was... More

My husband and I love seafood. Our favorite food is alligator. He decided to try the grill alligator and it was very fresh and tasty.

Went to lunch with my wife and co-worker. The setting was calming, the food was fresh and the music was good. Prices weren't too bad. No more than going to McDonalds.

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!
