Have to try.

Get there early because it's not a very big place but it's a great place. They have a great staff and the food is awesome. I tried the alligator sausage and it's amazing. Just stop in check the menu and pick what you want. Food is all great.

It's been a while since I've been in Dupuys. It was a favorite place to go when I was a child and I remember the very casual atmosphere and it seemed we always knew someone in there . The restaurant has been redone and it has a great atmosphere! Our fried oysters were scrumptious and the onion rings were fabulous!!!... More

Visited this quaint little eatery for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the flavor. The Eggplant Appetizer is amazing! They offer lunch specials at a very reasonable price --- Ribeye Steak, rice, gravy, peas = Dupuy's rendition of beef tips over rice with a little kick. Definitely a place I will revisit!

We love going to Dupuy's for their shrimp and oyster platters. Nice local place with lots of ambience. Go on a Saturday night to hear live music!

I've been taking visitors from out of town here for years and we've always been impressed by the delicious crab cakes, attentive service, and family atmosphere. Went again on a Saturday night with friends and we agreed that the quality of our food and service had dropped considerably. Our crab cakes had more mealy filler than crab and our fried... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants for seafood and we have some good ones here from which to choose. I like the variety in the menu - not just fried seafood but mind you, their fried food is excellent. We usually start with charbroiled oysters and will typically share a tuna dish. During my last visit, I had Eggplant... More

Comfortable atmosphere and really good seafood. The fried shrimp were great. Fast, friendly service. An Abbeville staple for downhome seafood cooking.
