Good food

My wife and I stopped here to eat after shopping at the outlets. When I pulled it up on trip advisor it had good reviews so we decided to eat there. 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

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

Made a trip there twice. Once for Raw oysters, They were fresh and excellent.The cold beer was awesome in a icy mug. Bryce was our waiter. He was super nice and helpful. The second trip I had chargrilled oysters. They were very good tasting as well. i highly recommend this place to all.Some of the best seafood I've eaten.

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!

This was a great place to have lunch. I thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp and hush puppies. Service was good and the price was average for this type of food. If you like seafood, this is a good place to visit.

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
