Absolutely one of my favorite restaurants. Their seafood is amazing, and the eggplant crabcakes are amazing. I order them everytime I go. The sensation salad dressing is also awesome. My favorite dish is their sauteed black drum. I can't get enough of it. Even their French bread is really good. It's a bit of a drive from Baton Rouge, but... More

Great food! The gumbo was beyond excellent! The crab body found in the seafood variety was even good--extra flavor! The fried fish was perfect---light, crisp, perfectly cooked. The shrimp pasta dish was --- not exactly what we had in mind. Very spicy... Very Chinese food tasting. The spice was almost over powering. Could not finish the portion. The service was... More

The food was very good. Its a rustic interior and exterior and a fun place to visit right next to the Mississippi river levee. A little over priced but still worth a visit. The Bar was very good, beer cold, and mixed drinks tasted great. The food is very good cajun and well above average. Could have been better priced... More

Note: I visited the restaurant for lunch earlier and had a perfect shrimp poboy -about 8 inches long- and French fries. The place was packed at lunch with locals. Classic comfort food and specials( I wanted to see if this place would be worth a visit for dinner----YES!!!) We visited this restaurant and really liked it. The setting is casual... More

Yes, it's an old ,many roomed place but that was good. And the food....well, the food was pretty good. We had a variety of items ( seafood... More

This restaurant is my favorite in the Baton Rouge area. Great atmosphere and the food is truly on the same level as some of the finest restaurants in New Orleans.

This was my first visit to Roberto's and I was very impressed with the atmosphere, service, and food. We started with the River Road Shrimp. Great appetizer, but it does have a hint of spice. Everyone at our table had the steak special which came with topped with bar-b-que shrimp and placed on a bed of hash. My favorite dish... More

Do not be "off put" by the building that houses Roberto's... it simply adds to the overall dining experience! There are tons of places to eat in Baton Rouge, but over the past four years, I have rarely found any place that compares to Roberto's. The quality of the food is beyond comparison. Yes, the prices are a bit higher... More

First of all, let me confess, I eat at Roberto's at least once ever couple of months. It is one of the most unique restaurants in the Baton Rouge area. Even though the address says "Sunshine" it is easily accessible from Baton Rouge via Nicholson Drive. My favorite dish here is the Fish Papillote. It is hands down the best... More

Where to begin? This is a very out of the way spot, unless you are driving the river road in LA. From the outside appearance you might not stop...but don't judge this book by its cover! I've been there a few times for business lunches when in the area and have never been disappointed. We start with the Fried Sweet... More
