I have never had a bad food experience at Dupuys. Everything that I have had has been good. If you are looking for great Cajun food, in my opinion this is the best place in Abbeville.

My wife and I were traveling through Cajun Country and stopped at Dupuy"s for lunch. We had fried alligator po boy sandwich and fried oysters. Both dishes were well prepared and delicious. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. A great lunch!

My grandfather always told me that G + G = B. Arrived a bit late for first seating (fills up on weekend at 5PM sharp. With about a 45 minutes wait, we asked if the bar area was available. Great seats, not as crowded and able to order not only adult drinks but also from the full menu. Ambience is... More

My wife are in this area and were looking for a place where we could enjoy the local crowd. This was recommended to us. We were not disappointed. The place was packed, we had a 45 minute wait for a table, but that was ok, we enjoyed talking to the locals in the bar. The food was very well prepared,... More

Again the best I have ever eaten. Grandma would... More

Dupuys has been in Abbeville, in the heart of Cajun country since 1869. The original owners were from Abbeville. It is an oyster house with fresh oysters shucked right in the restaurant for you to see. In addition to wonderful oysters there is a variety of grilled, fried and delicious seafood. Many with wonderful Cajun sauces to add to the... More

Getting there for lunch on a Friday afternoon, we found the bar area full. The restaurant was open only for dinner but we enjoyed the food and service in the bar area. People are friendly. Service was good. The po-boys are great and they also had local beers on tap.

Maybe my expectations were too high. The gumbo was very good, the boudin balls were so-so. Service was perfect.

We went to Dupuy’s last night for the first time in a long time. My question would be why we waited so long to return? There are hundreds of good restaurants within 50 miles of our home. Sometimes we just forget about some of the old standards. Dupuy’s, which opened in 1869 is more than a standard, it is one... More
