We've been here twice, it's an hours drive for us, and it's so well-worth it! The athmosphere is charming, the building itself so full of character, the staff so great, but none of that compares to the food! Hubby gets shrimp Roberto and I get...More

I can't believe I lived in Baton Rouge for 3 years without every hearing about Roberto's. On a recent visit back for an LSU game, we stopped for dinner here before driving to New Orleans. A little off the beaten path but absolutely delicious! It...More

We loved this place. The fried green tomatoes with crab topping were divine. We had the special, stuffed fish which was perfectly prepared. It was a 30 min drive from our hotel but was definitely worth it. We will be back.

This little gem is somewhat in the middle of nowhere. It's easy to find with GPS, so ignore the previous reviewer's note about needing a local to get you there. We had no trouble at all. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend...More

It has been a few years since I visited Roberto's. I was delighted to see the very nice remodeling done while maintaining the look of the old River Road Style. As always experienced before, our party of six enjoyed excellent service, a very good wine...More
