We had heard good things about RT’s for a while, but for some reason never found the time to go. What were we thinking?! Walking in is like stepping in time. The place is a little dated. Or a lot dated. But it gives the place a charm. When we went, it was full of regulars, which is usually a good sign that either the food is good or the service is good. We sat at the bar, and it turns out both are true. We had the Jack Daniels shrimp for appetizer. It was a little sweet, which I wasn’t expecting. But it was really good. The bread they served was great to sop up the gravy. For main, we got the shrimp and crab etouffee. Sweet baby Jesus, it was DELICIOUS. That dish alone is enough to make me come back. For dessert we got the Cajun bread pudding. Don’t get me wrong, it was delicious, but it was so rich that it kinda put me over the edge. I should have stopped with the etouffee and maybe ended with a nice bourbon or night cap. We’ll definitely be back to RTs.

Delicious food
Kat was an awesome server. She was friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable about the menu. My daughters (13&17) LOVED the food.
My 17 year old was so excited when she told us they had muscles as a lunch special. I had the shrimp Norman and my 13 year old have crawfish etouffee and we were all happy. They beignets were good too!
