My husband and I went to this restaurant for the first time and were impressed. The food was delicious and extremely reasonable for seafood. The service was outstanding.

Husband had magi magi and loved it. I had shrimp brochettes. Looked and tasted like cooked in oven or nuked. Prefer grilled but whatever. Baked potato was lukewarm but they gave me a new hot one. Bread was yeast rolls. Excellent.. Hot and fresh! Not my best dinner but ok.

My husband and I often eat at Ralph and Kacoo's! We love the fried pickles for appetizer , he usually gets chicken fried steak for dinner and me, I get the jumbo fried shrimp ! Totally recommend it, the aren't skimpy with the portions! Get ready to eat!! The bread they bring out before your meal is so yummy :)

Thank chrisron14
