Ever since I can remember, R & O's is where we would go when we wanted to enjoy local seafood .. right by the level and a real local gem. Good portions and pricing .. and parking nearby is free.

I have never had a bad experience at R&O's. The food is excellent and the wait staff is efficient and capable. My family has been frequenting this restaurant for more than 15 years.
