"This place was not what I expected to find in the area it's located...in a good way. On the outside, it is just a simple sign, but once inside, it takes on a casual, fine dining ambiance.
Good was pretty good as we sampled the restaurant week menu."

"RTs is a superb Cajun food gem with an excellent menu and chef specials daily. The wait staff is professional and attentive. Save room for the really divine chocolate chess pie dessert. We have been regular patrons of this eatery for years and keep coming back for the great food and value. Plenty of free parking across the street, too."

"We've eaten at RT's before and had always enjoyed the experience; however, this time was an utter disaster! It began with the table, which was located in an area with very little light and we had to use the table candle to read the menu. Unfortunately there was no other table available. Next we had to ask for the wine list. Then there was no one in the restaurant who knew the wines on their wine list and they could offer no assistance at all. We ordered an appetizer to share, salads and main courses. They brought the appetizer and the salads at the same time. The spicy calamari appetizer was cold and definitely not spicy. My Cajun Caesar salad was worse than those on the school cafeteria lines. It lacked anchovies and was simply unacceptable. My wife's house salad was even more sub standard. Before we could finish our salads, they brought our main courses and when we told the wait staff we were not ready, they stated they were told to bring it anyway despite them telling the kitchen we were not ready and proceeded to try and fit it all on the table. We insisted they take them back and keep them warm. When we were ready for our entrees my wife's salmon was cold and tasteless. My spicy pecan crusted haddock was only luke warm at best and again lacked any hint of "spice". We, having lost our appetites, asked for a doggy bag to take the salmon home to our three cats. They thought the same of it as we did and refused to eat it. I guess they too know good food when they get it and tonight's was an absolute disaster!"

"We've been dining at RT's for a long time. If you go for the first time you may notice that most of the patrons seem to have been there before. RT's is a local casual restaurant with up-scale food and very friendly people at your service. We all love the soups that should not be missed, but everything on the menu is first rate -- quality ingredients very well prepared. If you don't think that good crab cakes can be found in the area,RT's will change your mind. Try RT's and you will become a regular just like we have."

"A friend and I dined early at RT's on New Year's Eve before theatre plans. We hadn't dined there in years and were so happy to find it full of memories that continue to take place in the present. Cold salad plates. Wonderful specials. Well-informed and capable waitress."

"Starting with the crawfish/shrimp beignet (outstanding!) and oysters Rockefeller (great) through crawfish-crab and rockfish entrees, a great meal. Really enjoy RT's, don't get there often enough."

"RT Restaurant has wonderful food in an unexpected location. The ambiance is decieving, but the food and service compensates for all of that. The she-crab soup and the stuffed shrimp were marvelous. Even the cocktails were a good value. I have told many friends about this hidden gem."
