Good basic seafood.

Don's is not fine dining or culinary cuisine, but if you're looking for good basic Southern seafood dishes, Don's is dependable to come through consistently. They have private rooms for small groups and multiple convenient locations. Great for families with children.

I always have a great experience at Don's, but this last visit was exceptional! Kaci was very attentive to me and made this experience truly a pleasure. The jacked-up shrimp and ribeye were wonderful as always, and when the manager (Mandy) stopped by the table, I was sure to let her know how great everything was. I make it a... More

Early dinner with family, we ordered jacked up shrimp, fried shrimp and catfish, the gumbo was great - all tasty and deeply gratifying after long interstate drive. Was surprised to find deep fried ravioli on the menu but it didn't disappoint. Very busy place, offers a few different seating options, tables, bar or outdoors. Good that we booked a table... More

How disappointing-buy I should've known better. Monday night special, besides half priced oysters- is steak and shrimp. They saved a great deal of expense and had to have bought the cheapest ribeyes! Tough and full of gristle and fat and not worth the effort of trying to eat it The jacked up oysters were superb!

We've been here several times, for lunch, dinner, and after-work beer with co-workers. It's a great place to sit at the bar, have a few drinks, and chat with friends, and eat some good seafood. Or it's a nice place for a sit down meal with family. Seafood is very good!
