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.

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

Oysters on half shell were the best I have ever had…..then had a crab cake the size of a BigMac, crunchy on the outside, sweet on the inside…oh, and all on angel hair pasta loaded with crawfish….Banana pudding dessert was wildly good and they give giant portions. If you can't love this place, you can't love. I'll be back….

We stopped here for lunch on the recommendation of the women staffing the local museum in Gueydan, just up the road. The food was good, and the atmosphere casual and relaxed. Service was prompt and pleasant. As the name suggests, the menu leans heavily seafood. We tried the fried green beans, which had good bean flavor, but were really no... More

My only complaint is I wish this wonderful restaurant was near my home. Dupuy's is one of those places you hope to find while traveling. After reading the reviews. I hoped it would be good. When we arrive in town I drove by a few places to see where we were going to diner later that night. Looked in Dupuy's... More

I have been ther twice now, going out of my way the second time! Gumbo and oysters are some of the best I've had, but the crab cakes are... More

Drinks were great. The biggest crab cakes I have ever eatten. With real large crab meat. Sause was drizzled lightly on top, just right. And as always we can't leave without having the raw oysters.

Coming from Franklin, my wife and I brought another couple from out of town. We had previously ignored the recommendations of local friends who told us this was the best food in town. We went to another oyster restaurant across the bayou, and were completely disappointed with their over-hyped food and service. This time we trusted the local knowledge, and... More
