“Good food, great for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

R&Os offers something for everyone. The large menu has po'boys, seafood dishes, Italian food and pizzas. Everything is very good. They buy great seeded french bread at the restaurant, which comes on the side with Italian dishes and is the base for delicious po'boys. The roast beef is one of the best in the city, and the seafood platters are fresh and abundant. Great for kids, very casual and can be noisy at times. A great neighborhood style restaurant.

“The Po' Boy is more than a sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

I was brought here by a family friend on a recent trip to New Orleans. Very friendly place on the lake that I'm sure we would never have happened upon on our own. I ordered the "Shrimp Sandwich" and was treated to all the hype about the New Orleans Po' Boy. The shrimp was deliciously fresh and tastily fried, the sandwich bread was huge, fresh and tasty as well. I would highly recommend this place for tasty friend comfort food.

“Good family restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

We went to R&O Pizza with our three kids (aged 6, 8, and 10). The pizza was good, although very messy. My daughter ordered the kids' shrimp plate and loved it. The service was friendly and attentive.

“Good po-boy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

Three people in our party had the roast beef po-boy which was good and large. We all agreed the sauce was a little too strong. Other entrees in our party included pasta and pizza, both of which were good but not great. The wait staff also seemed to be overwhelmed which resulted in slow refills and extremely long period in paying. Overall, it was a good experience and a good choice for this area. Avoid Live Bait next door!

“Not Just Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

This place does many things well. The pizza is very good, as is the seafood. The price is right. Don't come here if you don't want a New Orleans neighborhood seafood experience. Frying is mostly greasless.
