It's been 20+ years since we visited Randol's, and we were both disappointed by nearly every aspect of our beloved cajun restaurant. After a long stint out of S. Louisiana, we were hoping to find our old friend, Randol's, alive and well. Instead, as far...More

We had dinner here with our two teenage daughters. Great fresh crawfish and fried alligator. The waitress showed us how to twist off the tails. Dancing after dinner with a friendly crowd. One of the highlights from our road trip!

Great food and great music with a live band. Practice your line dancing and arrive hungry. Randol's is a wonderful experience. We stumbled on it six years ago and put in the plan when we returned to Louisiana in April. Lafayette is a wonderful, friendly...More

The music and option to dance really is what made this a fabulous night out. The food was good...but I didn't find it superior to anyplace else. It is a very casual place and I enjoyed the atmosphere.

We stopped here to try crawfish for the first time. I loved their crawfish. They offer baked potatoes and corn as sides. We also had Crocodile boudins? Food was delicious and service was good and fast.

No cover charge when we were there. I doubt there ever is. It is not cheap food so probably covers the music costs. Randols is very family friendly. A unique place worth going to. We count it as a reason to go to... More
