I thought it was just a small local joint but it is a chain restaurant in southern Louisiana. The food was good and the service was also good. If... read more

This place seems to be very popular and the staff was friendly but when I went there, the service was actually exceptionally poor. I had asked for the sauces for my seafood, it never came and of course no one came by to flag them down. When you're paying a lot of money for a meal, you want it to... More

I enjoyed eating at Don's to the max. The place is very clean and the atmosphere was great. The staff was cheerful and very helpful. The food itself had a nice variety and tasted very good. I had stuffed shrimps and thought it was very nice. I also had a cheese cake for dessert and that also was nice. The... More

Try the Jacked up Shrimp. Amazing. Needed some good Southern cooking and this was the place. Service, atmosphere and food did the trick.

We often dine at Don's since we are locals. But, I often recommend this restaurant to visitors from across the world. The food I consistently awesome and true, authentic Cajun cooking. I highly recommend the jacked up oysters, if you don't see them on the menu just ask. The half and half crawfish is a favorite since it includes étouffée... More

Food was great. Atmosphere was great. We had drinks this trip and this was one of the best bloody Mary's I have ever had. Overall, I would recommend this place and WILL come back.

This pace is near a Cabela's Store and draws local workers and shoppers. The "Jacked up Shrimp" is great as is their house Italian dressing with chopped olives and capers. Server was quick, very pleasant and the food was excellent!
