We enjoyed Easter Lunch with family here at Ralph & Kacoo's. The service here is always excellent as well as the food. Also, the atmosphere is right for a nice formal dinner. Coming here with a large group is not a problem. On several occasions we have met family here for lunch or dinner having a group of 10-12. You might have to wait a few minutes (10-15) tops for a a large group but usually not very long.

The seafood is excellent. Be sure to try the Crawfish Etouffee or the Crawfish Special-a combo of fried crawfish and crawfish Etouffee. Also, a little know secret is that they serve chicken and dressing dinner with sides every Sunday. Be sure to ask for it on Sunday if you are wanting a traditional Sunday dinner. The steaks are very good as well. Don't forget all of the Cajun style foods.

We truly enjoy Ralph & Kacoo's because they handle large family groups well and service is always superior.

Ate here with my folks and had 1/2 dozen oysters and the fresh catch with Hollandaise sauce. Absolutely delicious. Our server was a bit rattled with the post-lunch crowd recovery, but did a nice job after she settled down. My folks liked their dish (seafood platter and small steak). Just solid food with solid flavor - nothing special, but probably one of Lufkin’s finest.

A wonderful place! Been going there since they opened. Best restaurant in Lufkin. Friendly helpful staff, consistently excellent food and service. Been eating gulf seafood for decades, yes I’m old. One of the best! Prices are in line for a seafood restaurant. Portions are Very generous.

We had never eaten at this restaurant before, and stopped by for lunch on the recommendation of a local person. The four of us each had a different dish, and everyone enjoyed what he or she had ordered. I particularly liked the shrimp special, as I wanted to try more than one shrimp dish.

I wanted to take my wife someplace special for her birthday. Knowing she love the food in NOLA I decided to bring her here. She ordered stuffed mushrooms, a cup of seafood gumbo and shrimp Charles. Noah (our server) did a fantastic job making sure everything arrived hot and at the right time. Needless to say she had a wonderful time, really enjoyed everything she ordered and. Eat it all We live 45 miles south of Lufkin but when time permits we will return again. Thanks Noah.
