Went for lunch in a Saturday. Full of nice and friendly people. Erik our server was the best. Food is amazing. Tastiest sandwiches ever. Fair prices. I can see why it is such a go-to place for locals. Love it

Great sloppy Roast Beef Po-boys. The onion rings are great as well. If there is a wait, it is worth it.

Good seafood and you do get a large portion for your order. Only one check per table but the waitress will break it up for you

This is my second visit to R&O and I wasn’t disappointed. The roast beef poboy is the best that I have ever had.

If you're in the area, do yourself a favor and eat here. It would take a lot to explain why it's so good, so come see it for yourself.

Easier parking since they added another parking lot. Seafood always fresh & well prepared. Waiting time can be long because the food is so good & sometimes very large families & friends gather for meals so whenever I’m alone I get takeout. Highly recommend.
