I am the Co-owner R. Landry's New Orleans Restaurant and Venue and have been for 15 years. When I started with R. Landry’s, it was a small To Go Place with seating for 2 people. It is now a 90 seater restaurant and one of/the most respected, loved, and well -known restaurants in Fort Smith, AR, loved for it's food, service and original live music program.
