At dinner hour, this place is packed with the locals, so go during off hours. All the food is great. Best gumbo in town. Also great R&O special po-boy (roast beef & Ham combo).

Dined here with friends and shared food. Everything was really good. The fried shrimp and oysters were perfectly prepared: tender with a delicate batter. Great pre-dressed salad, melt-in-your-mouth roast beef and I highly recommend the crawfish pie. Definitely worth a visit!

we have been to R&O's a couple of times, but they have recently updated their menu and look so decided to revisit them. Previously, they had a more low-key look with picnic, and other tables, and the food was focused on po-boys and seafood. They...More

Great grub. Serves Italian and seafood. I had the meatballs and spaghetti and it was very good. I will definitely go back as there were a few other items on the menu that I'd like to try. Great location too... Just a hop, skip and...More

I have never had a bad experience at R&O's. The food is excellent and the wait staff is efficient and capable. My family has been frequenting this restaurant for more than 15 years.
