Although I have passed this place several times when visiting my son, I never took a second look until I heard a waitress in GA bragging about "the best alligator she ever had" and this is the place that she mentioned. Therefore, I put it in my calendar to make sure that I stopped during next visit. First problem: the... More

Lovely gumbo nice and thick with perfect seasoning. Great hush puppies. Nice and crisp. Shrimp scampi is over the top with a little kick. Shrimp platter is so good and very diverse. Great service. Reasonable prices. Great meal all around!

Food was fresh,service was just okay. We only had two sets of silverware we had to request 3 more we were a family of five. The rolls and hush puppies were fresh and delicious. Small parking lot but great interior design and decor. Will visit again.

We came to BR to visit friends. We decided to get something to eat first so we selected Ralph & Kacoo's. Our first time here. My wife and I enjoyed the crawfish platter. One thing that immediately struck us was that the food was not overly seasoned. Too many places disguise lack of experience with too much seasoning. We like... More

Ralph & Kacoo's was always a special dining experience for me when I lived in Baton Rouge. However, that has been over 25 years now and this was the first time since I left Louisiana that I dined there again. I found the hush puppies to be greasy and over-cooked. They were once my favorite. Everyone else in my party... More

My husband and I stayed overnight in BR for thanksgiving and were staying at the Hyatt next door. We were a tad hungry and noticed that they were open for business. We went in and immediately noticed how dated the place is. It wasn't very clean and the carpet had an "old fried food smell" permeating from it. We waited... More

Family took me here for dinner to get a taste of Baton Rouge cajun/creole food. I had Ralph's Platter and it came with catfish, jumbo gulf shrimp, breaded oysters, stuffed shrimp, stuffed crab, crawfish tails, soft shell crab, and seafood gumbo. I got 2 meals out of this plate. The gumbo was okay, but the rest of the food was... More
