I made a return visit to this restaurant after several years. I found the appetizers very good, especially the hush puppies and onion rings. A variety of mains were ordered. I was a bit disappointed in the overall quality. The soft shelled crabs were a bit underdone, and the stuffed crab on the seafood platter was more stuffing than crab.... More

Stopped in on way into New Orleans. First time ever visited...upon recommendation of a friend that use to live there. Soft shell poboy was amazing. Bread was perfect! The half sandwich is definitely more than enough. Gumbo was delicious. If you have eaten at all the yummy poboy places in New Orleans...there are lots to choose from...do yourself a favor... More

Was looking for a place to go for dinner, our first choice was not available, so we decided on R & O's. It was not a long wait, the place was crowded! No sooner some one finished a meal, the table was bussed, cleaned and new patrons filled the seat. Our meal took awhile but was well worth the wait!... More

R&O's special is the sandwich to get. Roast beef and ham. Onion rings where great to share with table. Would recommend.

The seafood gumbo was hat and well seasoned. The hot (temperature) boiled crawfish were excellent. The house salad was unusually good, more Italian in flavor and more attention to it than the usual casual seafood restaurant along Lake Pontchartrain. The bar had a good list of spirits, wines, and beer. Prices were moderate. Diners are not rushed. Service was amicable... More

We went here on a whim as I wanted spaghetti. After reading all of the reviews, we tried it out. Our waitress seemed somewhat annoyed. The staff were horse playing as the restaurant was filling with guests. It doesn't provide a very comfortable atmosphere. I had spaghetti while my friend had Lasagna. They were both just Ok. We probably won't... More

This place was recommended to us as having great food! It was really good. We both had the soft shell crab. It was served over pasta with "red gravy". Very good!

This is a cool little place to eat. We ordered the gravy fries as an appetizer, and my children loved them. My husband ordered the oyster poyboy and said it was amazing one of the best he has ever had. I had the roast beef and it was very sloppy but so very good. We are from Louisiana and know... More
