“Go elsewhere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2008

I read a lot of good reviews about this place on other travel sites and decided to take my fiance there for valentine's day. Things didn't look good from the start. We got lousy seats by the entranceway, it took 15 minutes before someone came to wait on us, and the complimentary bread was dry and tasteless. I kept telling myself that we were here for the food - lots of people were raving that this was the best cajun place in alexandria. The "smothered" catfish was too thick and overly spiced, and the shrimp norman was like something like seafood curry. Not only that but I've been sick since eating there for the past few days. Perhaps it was a busy valentine's day and they had an off day - but then again, perhaps they're really just below average.

Nothing says a great night out like dinner at RT's. This is one of the best local restaurants in the area, and it's off the radar of all the people who tend to overrun the wonderful places.

Great service, great food - moderate prices. Think upscale Cajun/Southern and you're on the right track.

Heck of a good bar and you can eat at it too.
