First time guests. Road tired and feeling really hungry, we looked forward to a great meal in a casual setting. We had a great feeling about this from the moment we walked through the door. We ordered the Thursday special which was all-you-can-eat catfish and shrimp dinner, fried or grilled for a very reasonable price! We were blown away with... More

It's our favorite restaurant. The service is exceptional and the food is amazing. I love the place and if you ever pass through Gonzales, it's a darn shame you didn't stop to try the jacked up shrimp and oysters. They have the monopoly on these dishes and then it's their hush puppies yum yum. There is no choice on their... More

My family has been dining at Don's since I was a child. Previously, it was the Baton Rouge location, but I live in Gonzales now. Recently came to this location to celebrate my sister's birthday. There is a major lunch rush from a nearby hospital and the numerous chemical plants in the area. We had a 25 minute wait as... More

On business in Gonzales, we had two places we wanted to try for dinner. The first night we chose Don's Seafood. It was a great choice. I ordered the Shrimp dinner and it was fantastic. The waiter was attentive and the response to every question or request was no problem. All the waiters responded that way. I had more than... More

My wife and I dropped by on a Sunday afternoon. Even at 1:30 p.m. the place was crowded, and I expect it will stay that way due to its location and the fact that Don's is known via its multiple locations throughout Louisiana. I had the fried catfish strips and red beans and rice, and shared an oyster appetizer with... More

Ordered Dons seafood platter after seeing a picture on the menu and having the waiter reiterate we were ordering the seafood platter. I understand menu pics aren't always exactly the same but when the items listed (catfish, stuffed shrimp, fried shrimp, oysters, stuffed crab and ettouffee) except the ettouffee is served with half or less than what's pictured its ridiculous....

Don't let the name fool you. Don's is authentic Louisiana seafood and Cajun cuisine. We went there for lunch. Two of us had gumbo, outstanding flavor. Two had the blackened flounder and reported it to be some of the best they had ever eaten. I had the fried shrimp and they were very flavorful.

Good Louisiana Seafood. My husband had the Grilled marinated Chicken Breast and added Crab Cream Sauce. And I had a cup of Gumbo and Red Beans and Fish combo. We sampled each other's plate, and I must say everything I tried was excellent. The chicken was moist and the fish had a light coating and fried crisp. I can't wait... More
