Amazing Cajun. We dream about their she crab soup. Love the house salad. And tho I always want to try the daily specials, we head right back to crawfish etouffe and pasta jambalaya. Can’t help ourselves.. sooo goood.
One of my favorite venues. The service was great and I have never had a bad meal there. Outstanding!
Cute place. Waitress was very nice but when we asked her opinion she didn’t have one- she kept telling us what was popular which we don’t necessarily care about. Their “famous” appetizer jack daniels shrimp and lump crab we found bland however We loved the oysters Rockefeller. I picked my entree based on it sounding like it did not have a heavy sauce on it. The shellfish in parchment description on the menu needs some more information. It had a cream sauce or butter sauce in it which I did not want. My husband had the special haddock stuffed with crab and it also had cream sauce which he did not want on it and again- the sauce was not mentioned on the menu.
We did enjoy trying out this place and we will come back but we will be a little more prepared to ask questions on the menu items.
We've been going here for 30+ years. We love the place.
My family and I came her to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. I told him don’t let the outside fool you. He’s used to upscale dining. Once he sat down and saw how quaint everyone was. The service was exceptional. And as always the food was REMARKABLE.
Great funky restaurant with outstanding cajun food. Will go back again when in town. Try the Oysters Bienville.
Nice place, a little dated, but good food.
The food here was amazing and everything was prepared nicely. Best restaurant week visit I’ve ever had.
The restaurant gets crowded and it's best to have a reservation. There isn't much standing room and folks waiting for a table are gathered at the front door. There is a lot of noise in the bar area. The food and service was great.
The food was awesome. The service was great. Enjoyed the crabcakes and mussels. The bread is delicious as well.
Dinner with friends
Great food and service. The atmosphere was relaxing.
Great food and service. Restaurant Week is the perfect time to go.
I’ve been here at least 5 times over the years and always enjoy my meal
Celebrated birthdays during restaurant week. Had excellent service and good food as always.
This unpretentious, Louisiana-based gastronomy, restaurant is highly commendable, for a very relaxed, friendly, atmosphere, delicious comfort food and efficient but self-effaced service. You need not dress up to the hilts to come here, but it is very pleasant indeed.
RT’s is one of our favorite restaurants! We frequently go there after attending a matinee in DC. The food is outstanding. Also, it’s right near the Birchmere.
Another fabulous meal! Really enjoyed the a Restaurant Week Menu!
Really good food and service!
Best Creole outside of NOLA. Seafood is always fresh & carefully prepared. Jack Daniel's shrimp is an all-time appetizer home run.
Best Cajun food I've had outside of Louisiana. I highly recommend this restaurant . Not the most romantic restaurant, but you can't beat the service or the food or the value, whether for lunch or dinner.
Love this place
Everything was wonderful
Our go to restaurant whether it’s just the two of us or a group of friends. We’ve never been disappointed with the service or the food! Delicious!
Great time. Love the staff.
RTs has been my go to restaurant for almost 10 years now. Never had a bad meal or experience there in all that time.
Always delicious. A cozy, comfortable restaurant. Friendly wait staff. Accomodating chef. Glorious cuisine. Benn coming back for almost 30 years now to this unexpected pleasure in Del Ray.
The neighborhood is a little sketchy but the food was great.
Perfect for your cajun fix and always a great place to eat before a show at the Birchmere
My favorite restaurant in Alexandria. Been around a long time, very comfortable and quality is remarkably consistent. Cajun/creole menu that can hang with all but the best in New Orleans. I am fairly picky but could happily eat almost anything on the menu.
Excellent service and food! Would highly recommend to anyone. Nationally-known cajun restaurant.
We enjoyed excellent
Crawfish & Shrimp Beignets
Served on a bed of Garlic Aioli followed by
She Crab Soup, then
"Death" by Gumbo and
Southern Fried Catfish
All food was excellent, tasty.
Service was attentive and professional.
RT's lived up to its excellent reputation on our recent visit there for dinner. Friendly, attentive waiter (Steve); lots of seafood choices on the menu; timely turn-around of our orders; excellent bread; both of our main courses loaded with tasty seafood. We will return.
We dine at RT's every time we visit family in Alexandria. Once again it did not disappoint!
Local spot! Great Customer Service. Food was good.
My friends and I really enjoyed dinner. The food was exceptional. The cocktails were on point. Our servers were very cordial and attentive. This is one of my favorite restaurants. I love the Cajun food.
Wait staff was great. Food was excellent. I always get the she crab soup. It’s so delicious with plenty of crab meat. I got the bowl vs. the cup since I love this soup so much and wanted a bigger portion.
The food was excellent. If you're looking for New Orleans style cuisine, then I'd recommend RT's Restaurant.
A lovely Saturday evening dinner with friends at an longstanding place. The comfortable atmosphere and calm dining room allowed we good friends to have a great evening of conversation. The seafood specialties were also a hit!
