THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ralph & Kacoo's Restaurant Review

: If you bring the family to New Orleans, Ralph & Kacoo's is a fun stop during your trip. Locals don’t typically drive to the French Quarter to eat at the place, even though the fare is surprisingly inviting, because there are crowds, a wait for a table, and lots of kids running around making a joyful noise. However, the food’s freshness and consistency are evident in the broiled and fried fish, peppery shrimp boiled in their shells, fried oysters and crawfish etouffée (served only during crawfish season). The ambitious menu also offers steaks, pastas and lobster dishes and strictly Louisiana fare, such as deep-fried alligator. Dessert is typical for New Orleans --- bread pudding or cheesecake. The wine list is several pages long, and while serviceable, offers no real standouts. A big bar is dominated by a full-size fishing boat hull, and the dining rooms are festooned with a hodgepodge of nostalgic clutter.

Ralph & Kacco's (French Quarter) the best seafood and st
by brigitte on Fri Sep 17, 2010 9:31 am
As soon as my family and I entered the restuarant Ralph and Kacoos we was greeted by a wonderful woman named Susanne. She greeted us and brought us to our table. She gave us our menus and announced who would be serving us that evening. We had a birthday and she made sure that we was announced and they sang to us. She often walked over to assure that we was happy and if there was anything she could do to assist. As well as the manager on the floor. Mike was very well spoken and we enjoyed our evening. the food was excellent and our waiter Blake went out of his way to provide excellent service for the evening. I will remain a customer at ralph and kacoos they make you feel right at home. Susanne and Mike thanked us for coming and asked us to return.
