RT’s is one of my favorite restaurants. It was recently named one of the Top 50 Southern restaurants in the country and for good reason. The decor is comfortable and casual, even a bit dated. But the food is what makes this place so special. Everything I have tried on the menu, from appetizers to entrees and desserts, is mouthwatering and flavorful. The etouffee is the best I have had outside of New Orleans. Service for me has always been 4-5 stars, even on busy nights. This is a regular stop for me and a place I recommend everyone try if they like traditional Southern dining. Don’t forget to check out the funky 3-D wall art of the local area done by a local artist. If you like sleek celebrity chef restaurants, this is not for you. But if you want great food you need to come here.

Very enjoyable
This is a nice neighborhood place. We went this past Friday for the first time in a few years and had a great time. We ate off the Restaurant Week menu, with gumbo and shrimp/crawfish beignets for appetizers, steak frites and blackened Mahi Mahi for entrees, and coconut custard pie and Creole bread pudding for dessert. Everything very good, service was great, atmosphere is friendly and welcoming.
