Great stopping point

Several guys were coming back from a fishing trip and decided we wanted some good seafood to end the trip on. Don's did not disappoint. It had a great atmosphere and the food was very good. I'd come back again for sure.

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!

We had dinner at this restaurant at the recommendation of the hotel hostess. We loved the food and the service was very good. There is a good variety of food and it is a family friendly place.

Way to pricy for the little amount of food you get. Frozen deep fried raviolis that do not taste that great. Out of the box mash potatoes 😣 and like another costumer said before. The bread they give you before your food comes has that neon yellow butter looking oil, terrible. Will never go to Dons sea food again. I... More

Wonderful seafood dinners, including the shrimp dinner and the submgnature grilled stuffed shrimp. The gumbo roux was dark and just perfect. Jessica, our waitress, and Ray, the manager, we're very attentive and eager to please. The satsuma mimosas were so good and refreshing ! Dons is always so consistently good and authentic !

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
