I stopped in for lunch after a flight, the restaurant is right around the corner from the airport. I had a lunch steak and sweet potato. I was amused that the typical side salad or veg was not automatically added. The food good, not great. I'd come back. I guess the main reason is that it is like a chain... More

This was a very good restaurant, very friendly staff, good food, cold beer, very clean. The food was served fresh and hot, our beer was served cold and our bartender was outstanding. A very good place to stop in and have a drink or two.

My husband and I have been trying to like this place for over a year. (We like to support local establishments) The menu is simple- burgers, sandwiches, salads, chicken and pork, steak, and a couple of seafood options. The food is decent (the rolls are fabulous!), but portions are somewhat small. The atmosphere is okay. We usually sit at the... More

For a seemingly (less than) busy Friday night, we were shocked at our experience Being hospitality career professionals we try to be optimistic in noticing slip ups, but this was probably the worst meal/service we've experienced Steaks over cooked The promised rolls were brought after our meal Had to request drink refills & beer rounds We sat close to the...

I must admit that I have worked in Aloca for over 18 years, and I often forget that RJ's is located right across the street. I have always been o.k. with the food, although I am not always satisfied with the portions. If I am paying $8.99 for a salad, do not bring it out in a side-salad bowl with... More

We always go to RJs when in town. Food consistently excellent. A variety of good American items on menu. Excellent warm rills to start with. 2 in group had chicken tenders with a loaded baked potato. One had grilled chicken salad and one a veggie plate. All excellent.

Food was good nothing special, had the pita french dip. The bread was hard and would prefer french baguette, meat and sauce were good. Shrimp bisque was ok to much flour and not enough shrimp. Friend like the grouper bites. Server was nice and responsive. Good place to come for a meal on the way to airport instead of fast... More

My friends and I go to RJ's Courtyard several times a year to eat, laugh, and catch up with each other. We always sit in the bar area. Service was average, food was delicious, as always. This time though, they had a gnat problem going on. It became quite annoying having to swat them off the food and drinks. The... More

Very disappointed. It had been several years since we had visited due to price per portion. We thought we'd give it another try. Party of four, all of had a steak of some sort. Two 10oz sirloin steaks cooked medium, one 6oz also cooked medium. The other had the black and blue salad. All four came out so done that... More
