“Good poboys!”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

Came based on reviews and price point. Not disappointed. Small place and neighborhood raised a few eyebrows since I was w my kids. All loved their food though.

“Aways a treat to dine here”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Whenever we are in the DC / Alexandria area, we try to make a point of dining at RT's. The food is consistently good. Love the beignets! The atmosphere is average at best, but who cares when the food is so good.

“Really really good!”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

We were excited to try this restaurant based on these reviews and we were not disappointed! This is a neighborhood restaurant with a nothing special interior but who cares the food was fabulous, especially if you like New Orleans food. We had fried oysters which were amazing. I had the special crab dish which was nothing but huge chunks of crab with a crispy pepper crust, no breadcrumbs. It was sensational. My husband had gumbo and he was raving about it. We topped it all off with key lime pie and it was hard not to order another piece. The menu is huge and I wish we lived near by so we could try everything on it. We highly recommend this restaurant.

“Go for the she-crab soup!”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

Best She-Crab soup, ever! Salads are also good, and hearty.

Small restaurant that does things well. Had a bit of an 80's feel to the decorations, but we still had a good dinner.

Prices are higher than a family-type restaurant, but food is of a better quality.

“Average”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

The restaurant was busy when we arrived. It was small and poorly decorated. The owner told the ladies in front of him to have a seat at the bar and he would buy them a drink. We then asked for a table of 4 and he rudely asked if we had a reservation. We said no as we were visiting and this was our first time at the restaurant. He told us to go sit by the bar which got hit with a blast of cold air every time the door would open. THe food was average but highly overpriced for the type of restauarnt and the quality of the foood. We will NEVER go back when we are in the area again
