Recommended by my hotel, small menu with poboys and Cajun seafood. I had the special, drum with crabmeat. Outstanding, will come back for a po-boy for lunch later in the week.

We ate here for first time. The food was pretty good. I had the Soft Shell Crab Plate and my spouse had the Boiled Shrimp Plate. Service was good and there was not a big crowd at 5:30 p.m. when we arrived. I would eat at Robbie G's again, if when, again, traveling to Alexandria. (FYI- the Restrooms are on... More

It's yummy! Sometimes a little pricey, but hey, that's crawfish! We usually order crawfish and shrimp. My daughter often gets the fish. Always yummy. Super casual and friendly. It's our go to crawfish place.

The grilled shrimp, whether on a Poboy or in a salad, are wonderful! Perfectly seasoned and cooked! The ham and cheese Poboy is the best!

This is a small locally owned restaurant. The dress is definitely casual. If you love seafood, this would be a good place to try.

The crawfish were blahhhh. The crawfish seemed like they sat in a cooler all day. The texture of the meat was just off. When we talked to the owner about it he grabbed a crawfish off our plate, tasted it, grimaced, and said they taste just fine to him. Never going back. The other crawfish spots around town are definitely... More

The food is the greatest! Fried shrimp and the grilled shrimp are excellent! Best ham and cheese Poboy anywhere! The bread pudding is amazing!

I don't know where all these great reviews are coming from. I had the gumbo - it was OK, nothing at all special. Pretty watery base. Catfish were overly fried - very soft inside and had too much salt. Service was average. Not especially friendly.

Robbie G's came highly recommended by a couple of locals, when I asked where would they go to eat? It is kind-of-a-dive, not fancy by any means. I really enjoyed the experience. I was by myself and grabbed a seat at the small bar. The hostess/cashier greeted my like a long lost friend and explained the menu options and features.... More
