Does anyone know if the owners of Coffee Landing are going to rebuild? I live in Fort Worth, and have been driving out there for years to eat. We were going out there for Fathers Day, and what a sad sight to drive up to. There was nothing left but the slab.

I can't say for certain, but I would guess so. That guy had to be making a fortune with that place!

then again, maybe not - Red Akers burned - did they rebuild? If they did it was in a different spot -
It was a better restaurant than Coffee Landing...

It is not going to reopen. However his Grandson opened a place just outside Frankston called County Road Crawfish. They are open Thursday Thru Sunday and he is in the process of building a 40X60 building. The address is 13647 CR 4224.

Its a outdoor thing with bands booked at times. The food offered is same as Coffee Landing and they are adding more to menu at times. You will not find Shrimp and Bugs any cheaper around here than at County Road Crawfish.

Can any one tell me where we can eat fish as good as coffee landing in the Tyler area? We really miss Coffee Landing and also Red Achers. What is it with Fire, Fish, burn to the ground with the two best fish places in east Texas. We are coming for vacation the first week in July and really would like to have some good catfish while we are there.

Hey guys, this is the best food you can get around here from the best people! Can't say enough about it! Name is County Road Crawfish in Frankston. Can't post the number or I would. It's worth a trip!

Red Achers hasn't been open in over 20 years. I believe they had like 2 or 3 different locations in the times they were around.

Coffee Landing was mediocre.

My wife and I ate at Red Ackers and that was like 11 years ago when we lived close to Hwy 155 so it was not 20 years ago that it closed. I wish that Coffee Landing WOULD re-open.

I ate at Red Ackers the last time around 2002 or so, hardly 20 years ago.

While visiting Tyler, TX. on vacation....we zip lined at New York Texas Zipline Aventures and they recommended us eating at Randy's Crawfish on Hwy. 155 just outside of Tyler.
The food was very fresh and we will return next time we are in the Tyler area. Lake Palestine is a nice lake.

I would hope coffee landing never rebuilds. I almost died from eating there food. Seriously, the doctor said it was a form of something like colera. I am certain God let it burn.
