They can get really busy at lunch, but do a nice job to get people in and out as fast as they can. The jacked up shrimp are fantastic. Love the red beans and fish also and their boiled... More

This restaurant was very busy for lunch and I can understand why. This restaurant offers a huge variety of oyster dishes. I had the fried shrimp and shrimp etouffee lunch. The fried shrimp were large and tender. The shrimp etouffee was good with a little bit of spiciness. They offer a good variety on the kids' menu, as well. I... More

We enjoyed our meals & the prices were reasonable for a slightly upscale restaurant. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. If you stay at the Town Suites that's just up the road, ask at the front desk for coupons for a free drink each.

We are here to celebrate my birthday. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. I ordered the filet and it was cooked perfectly. My dude dish of green beans was incredible. Best I've ever eaten.

Don's Seafood was not up to Louisiana seafood. Had shrimp and catfish plate. Well, if it was true catfish it was terrible. I would lean toward it being Swai( Vietnamese catfish), plus it tasted old. Learned my lesson, ask before.
