The greens are amazing and the Turner is a wonderful dish. The food has plenty of flavor with a friendly staff. I highly recommend giving them a try.

We had not eaten here in years until last week. We were so pleased with how wonderful our dinners were. We had the fried green tomatoes, the Turner with steak and the crawfish etouffe. We remarked that we need to add this to our weekly rotation! It was very good! It is a little pricey but worth what we paid.

This place is very consistent,with the food and service, the staff is always pleasant and I love the ceasar salad. I have it every time I go. I wish the menu would change just a little seasonally.I would love a crawfish dish! Just saying!

I have visited this establishment on three occasions, and each was a delightful experience. The chef is truly masterful, and renders a variety of Cajun and "real southern" fare and a moderate price. The parking is available only on the street or nearby, and the facility would be too small for a large group, but is otherwise ideal for a... More

The tomatoes were firm and delicious. The accompanying sauce had just the right amount of spice. definitly order these! I had the Turner with beef. Unbelievably good. The beef... More

We came to RL's based on the TA reviews and we were not disappointed. The bar was lively while patrons were watching the UGA game, while the dining room in the adjacent room was more low keyed. Wood floors and soft lighting set the stage for a different experience. The gumbo was very flavorful with a smooth blend of seasoning.... More

The 4 of us agreed to return to an old standby and we were not disappointed. This place for some reason is forgotten and we are always very glad when we remember. It is located just off of the square on Floyd st. My wife had surf and turf, I had a special of blacked swordfish and shrimp and cheese... More

The place is reminiscent of New Orleans restaurants with a courtyard. The food is Authentic as the chef studied and worked along side the famous Chef Paul Prudhomme. One of my favorite dishes is the gumbo, but everything is delicious! If you like a nice cocktail with dinner the bar will not disappoint. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Love to go here but for some reason we don't remember it often enough. Never a bad meal, service is good and the bar is fine. The food is very consistent.
