Off the beaten path but worth the trip. Best Cajun north of the bayou. Can't get enough of their crawfish etouffee.

The title pretty much says it. Prices suggest that you save it for a special event, though. With tax and tip, budget $30 each, plus alcohol. People in shorts and t-shirts may suffer under the air conditioning but hey, it serves them right. Plenty of on-street parking, with a free public lot a half block to the left, as you face the restaurant. The food is great, but the specials tend to be stand-outs.

Been here several times, live the food. But is a pleasant waitress too much to ask for? Wish I'd been seated where the waiter was serving.

We spent the last week of June in Washington, DC and the surrounding area. During our visit, we ate out every meal, including many terrific meals, as you might expect in our nation's capitol.

Hands down, the best meal we had was at RT's in Alexandria. The four in our party, including my ten year old granddaughter, ordered something different from their Cajun inspired seafood menu. Every item (we shared with each other) was excellent, as was the service.

Our overall experience at RT's was excellent and we will definitely go back on our next visit.

Awesome food and service. FRESH squeezed lemonade. Oysters were large so you only needed 6. Fast and friendly service.
