We stayed at a nearby hotel and asked the desk clerk for a good place to get a steak. She suggested this place and we tried it. GREAT CHOICE!!! The steaks were so tender and cooked to perfection. It seems a bit pricey BUT you get a salad and two sides with it so it was worth it to us.... More

Visited here with a business friend. The service was good and the service was as well. I'll go back for sure. Bobbi's Burbon Tenderloin is an excellent dish if you visit here.

"Hole in One" has a warm,cozy feel and the food is excellent. The desserts are all freshly made and so good. I love the salad dressings and the fresh ingredients used in the salads. Lufkin is fortunate to have a stylish restaurant with good food.

Do not judge this restaurant according to the hotel it is attached. Small, clean with a friendly staff & casual nice. Not the type of adult place for a young family to drop in with small children. Was in the mood for Chicken Fried Steak - it is a favorite entree of mine & have ordered it in hundreds of... More

We ate here with friends to celebrate a milestone birthday and I was amazed at how good the food was. The steak was perfectly cooked - well done, but not over done. My gumbo was perfectly seasoned. The Long Island Iced Tea was not watered down and quite potent. We'll definitely be back. This is not a restaurant for children... More

I was seated very promptly, right after they opened for the evening. The staff was friendly and very attentive. The steak was perfectly prepared and very nicely presented.

Only in Lufkin once a month and each time I eat at Hole in Once - You have to try the eggrolls/gumbo and ribeye. All I want is more of red wine selection........

Arrived after a long day of driving at our Holiday Inn Express in Lufkin Texas and did not want to drive anywhere in the dark in a strange city.
