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

Roast beef poor boy is to die for! Get onion rings! Soft shell crab was huge! We loved it all. It's not fancy but it's great.

My wife and I eat dinner there usually every Sunday evening. Their roast beef po-boys are authentic and very good. Pizzas are wonderful. Will remind you of a traditional New Orleans neighborhood restaurant. People from all over dine there. Their bread is over the top.

Some local's told us that this is the place where the locals all eat. That's a good recommendation in my book! Stopped in here for lunch. Do not let the outside appearance turn you away. It looks old and run down a bit, but hey, this is a very longstanding restaurant with a great reputation! There is some parking in... More
