Our hotel la Quinta recommended this place and gave us coupons. There was a special on oysters so the resto was pretty full, and we had to wait five to ten minutes to get seated. No big deal. Our waitress was friendly and diligent. Of course , I had tasty raw and big oysters then a crab meat "au gratin"... More

This place was a total disappointment. My girlfriend and I ordered the seafood combo meal, the catfish was horrible,undercooked to the point of the texture being mushy and a awful raw fishy taste that was unbelievable. Once my gf bit into the stuffed shrimp she instantly spit it back into her napkin. The stuff shrimp was sour and smelled raw.... More

We ate a seafood Platter here and decided to share hoping the portion size was typical of South Louisiana. We were not disappointed it was Heaping. The Fried Catfish was wonderful, the breading was different but some of the best I have had. Service was friendly and on point. Resturant is close to the Tanger Outlets and in the Parking... More

This restaurant is always crowded for some reason. The food here is not at all like the Don's food that you may have grown up eating. It seems very "touristy". I don't think that an etouffee is supposed to be orange in color. Even with a lunch menu, this place is very expensive.

We stopped at this place while driving on our way to Houston. We stopped here because we saw it on TV. It was a nice restaurant and the food was good and the service was good. I must say there was nothing really special about it, though. I had the shrimp po boy and soup and everything was standard. My... More

Don's Seafood in Gonzales is a great place for seafood. Monday nights during oyster season has a great special on all oyster dishes. I also love the boiled shrimp and the stuffed shrimp, the later of which is to die for.

Former Baton Rouge resident visiting from Knoxville, TN. Wanted to try the "jacked up" shrimp that I saw on one of those food tv shows. Went for lunch on 10/25 to celebrate a double birthday for mom and wife. The food was good but I'm kind of a value diner and the $125 tab for 4 including the tip with... More

Dear IMTrue, We are so happy that you chose us for the birthday celebration for your mother and wife! We apologize for the waiter’s usage of “no problem”, this will be corrected. Unfortunately food costs have gone up which is reflected on menus of all restaurants. Prices at the restaurants you’ve mentioned are in line or in many cases higher... More
