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

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

Was traveling with fairly large group, was recommend by locals. Restaurant was good. Most choices were fried. I think we were expecting a "boil". Read where Gonzales was "Jambalaya Capital" didn't find any on menu. Server was great, but wasn't greeted friendly upon arriving at restaurant. Was somewhat pricey, but expected with traveling. Portions were very large. Most in our... More

Unfortunately, a bad waitress can ruin a dining experience. This would have been 4-star if it hadn’t been for the very bad service. The food was excellent. We started with the seafood gumbo, which was the best I’ve ever had. Great flavor; not excessively thick; plenty of seafood. My boyfriend ordered the special – all-you-can-eat friend shrimp and catfish. Both... More
