Stopped at a last minute decision, and, was assured they could serve, successfully, a gluten-free customer, and, even had a Gluten-free menu. However, our waiter was new to the industry, and, uncertain, regarding what was Gluten-free. The meal was served, with even our waiter questioning the validity of it's Gluten-free. To his credit, our waiter got the manager, Haley Robert... More

I love seafood and have spent a good bit of my life along the Gulf Coast. I am partial to Cajun/Creole, Crawfish, Jambalaya, Ettoufee, Bisque, Etc. JUST SAY NO! Don's is still living on a legacy from years ago in Lafayette, OMG, I ordered the Crawfish Sampler $23.95 (had all the above PLUS, Fried Tails) at LUNCH, also a dozen... More

I'm getting to be a regular at Don's. Their "Jacked Up Oysters" are a must-get appetizer (although they could be a entree!). If you get a old-fashioned, they serve it with a sugar coated swizzle stick, and there are weekly "all you can eat" specials. The prices are pretty good and the food is well worth the price.

Just rediscovered Don's after MANY years away. The Gonzales LA location is clean, well maintained and staffed to a "T". Happy hour & other promotions add value.

The wife and I met a friend there for drinks and light food. We were seated promptly. The wife had a Margarita, my friend and I had the 2 for 1 draft beer, which incidently is all day everyday. Can't say enough about the 'Jack-up" grilled oyster! Excellent. A good way to eat oysters in months with no "R". The... More

If you're looking for a really good seafood restaurant in the Gonzales area near I-10, you have two sound choices: Mike Anderson's and Don's Seafood Hut. For my money, as a nonresident, Don's is harder to find because it's a bit lost in the midst of a Cabela's and various hotels right off I-10. But the menu is ample and... More

Bar and grill atmosphere. Casual. Good for families. Next to Cabellas, across street from Outlet Mall. Appetizers were good. Entrees were average.

I ordered the shrimp platter and enjoyed it. The shrimps were fried to a golden brown and were hot when I got it. The wait was not long for my food even though it was very busy. The servers were polite and always made sure to check up on us.

If you're traveling thru this is the place to eat. Great menu, nice people, decent prices, really good food. Stopped in for a beer after being on the road, got half a dozen char grilled oysters, amazing, checked into my hotel and went back for dinner. Try the stuffed shrimp. They don't fry it they bake it and it'll make... More
