Never judge a book by its cover. This holds true for Robertos. Outside Appeal is not desirable but oh my the food is exceptional! It's a must for River Road Shrimp in the bread bowl and th fried green tomatoes topped with crab meat and the crab Brie soup. I've never tasted anything better than these 3 appetizers. There specials... More

Roberto's feels like eating at a country restaurant 80 - 100 years ago, Old building, rustic wall, historic photos and good modern paintings make up the decor. The menu, from sandwiches to broiled filet, is creative and combines simple country cajun with much "fancier" recipes and presentation. A great place for an outing with local friends or with visitors from... More

This is a wonderful, hole in the wall restaurant near the bank of the Mississippi. The food is amazing. I had the oyster platter. The oysters were lightly breaded and flash fried making them tender to the point of almost melting in your mouth. We also tried the fried alligator which was great. Others had the catch of the day,... More

Always go for the special - never disappoints! Specials are always posted on Facebook, so check out their page for those. Good idea to arrive early because the line is sometimes long. We always go for special occasions or when out of towners come in because it is a fun experience and the waiters are always wonderful.

We came here with family as a celebration for my niece's graduation from LSU. From the outside, it looks like a set from an old Patrick Swayze movie. Great service, big portions. The spicy shrimp over linguine made spicy Thai food seem bland, but in a good way. rich and spicy. Good wines & appetizers.

Wonderful family run restaurant. Seafood steaks and more. Cajun style. I would say the best Cajun in BR area.

Anytime I ever head out to Roberto's its a bit of a drive but always is amazing. Was there on a Wednesday night for a date and their special was absolutely incredible and wonderfully prepared. The staff is always friendly, it has a great ambiance being in an old house with old wood walls and floors. The food coming out... More

The building didn't look like much from the outside, but the parking lot was full at lunchtime and we had heard/read good reports. So glad we stopped! The waitress was very friendly and the food was excellent. Generous portions and reasonable prices. We had hoped to return for dinner on another day, but didn't find ourselves in the vicinity. Would... More

While the restaurant is technically in Sunshine, Louisiana it is about ten minutes away from the LSU campus in Baton Rouge down Hwy. 30, and is one of the best kept secrets around. Situated on the River Road, in an old hardwood floor cypress clad building, Roberto's is a treasure yet to be discovered by those who love great food.... More
