"We were seated right away and our waitress was very friendly and helpful. We ordered shrimp and grits for appetizer- delicious! We ordered crab imperial and smothered catfish - both were superb. So happy to have found this place for authentic Cajun food. Will definitely go again to try everything on the menu.:)"

"We enjoyed RT's as much as ever. We wish more diners were enjoying it. The appetizers and mains were just as tasty as ever. The oysters three ways were excellent and piping hot. The ettouffe was very good. This is still a great place for a Cajun meal. Seafood specials such as swordfish also."

"We used to visit RT's fairly often, but haven't been for at least 10 years. Much has remained the same, but at least on this occasion, the food wasn't quite up to the former standard. Some of the dishes were excellent, but the Acadian peppered shrimp were overcooked, quite rubbery. The gumbo was surprisingly bland for Cajun cooking. The service was very good - professional, knowledgeable, just enough checks to see that all was well. The wine list is very small, but with several nice bottles among the selection."

"We've been eating at RT's for years and consider it one of the best in the area. It's basically Cajun style but has a good variety of choices. The gumbo is good, the etouffee first rate. Service is very good. The atmosphere is casual and not too loud. There is a decent wine list, a well-stocked bar, and a good selection of beers. There are a few booths for dining in the bar but most of the seating is in two dining rooms. This is an excellent place for a good meal or a special occasion."

"While traveling through Alexandria from Florida we made a reservation because the (New Orleans style) food sounded like it would be something different and good. We were a little nervous about the location, but our expectations were met with the food. We had the she crab soup then the fried shrimp and lump crab dinner and the fried oysters and lump crab dinner and we were stuffed and happy when we left. Very delicious food. We would definitely go back again."

"The food is fantastic and we will definitely be going back. Service was a little slow, but we also had a party of 7 that they accommodated very well. They gave us the entire back room, broke up the check, packaged desserts to go, and were very kind. I look forward to eating there again. Will definitely bring my 10 month old, as it seemed very family friendly. Decor is odd, and it seems like a hole-in-the-wall dive bar, but has a decent wine list, and, from what my friends said, they make awesome drinks at the bar."

"My family's been eating at this little hole-in-the-wall for decades and it never (ever) disappoints. I was born in New Orleans so we know a little bit about the cuisine-- always fantastic! A fragrant Sazerac cocktail to start and order my favorite Nezpique oyster dish as entree -- and, of course, sharing appetizers and dessert round out the evening."

"RT's was recommended by a friend and regular. My family was not disappointed. We ordered appetizers and entrees, including the special. They do not skimp on the butter...in a good way. The spice level was awesome and the authenticity of the creole and cajun dishes was spot on. I'm still thinking about it days later.
The service was impeccable. We had my five-year-old with us, and our waitress (Mallory?) was so sweet to him. She was also incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. The chocolate mousse with birthday candles was a special treat and the lemon chess pie was divine.
We'll be back soon!"
