The past few times we've gotten food we've gotten the takeout service. This really isn't a table service review. The times we've had table services it has been good. This last time we got takeout showed up and walked in the takeout for immediately seeing what looks like the female manager frantically spraying perfume like a mad woman. The bathrooms... More

We visited here in September and they were awesome. Not only did they have the Detroit tigers playing (an unexpected bonus) but the service was very friendly and the food was even better! I got the Chicken and Andouille gumbo which was the best I've ever had. So good that when I was back through Hammond this past week I... More

The food at this Don's is starting to slip in quality. I have eaten here many times, but this time it was not even close to what it has been in the past or what the other Don's restaurants deliver. Ordered the raw oysters and they were horrible! They did not have the pepper jelly vinaigrette for the seafood salad... More

We chose Dons because we ate there many times growing up in Louisiana. We ordered shrimp poboys and the fried seafood platter. Our server was very nice, but got our order wrong. The portions were generous but the food was only average, not the EXCELLENT we remembered. The salads were still fresh and awesome, but we missed the old house... More

Our waiter Eric was very kind and polite. The appetizer charbroiled oysters were pretty good. The green salads were fresh. My wife and I shared the Shrimp Dinner; it was pitiful at best. Especially for the price we paid for it. The shrimp gumbo was bland and watered down without the first shrimp in it. All the shrimp were very... More

I was in town for business and decided on Don's as I remembered eating there often when I lived in New Orleans. I had a fried seafood platter, ordered the larger platter as it was on special that night for the same price as the medium sized platter. It had a good variety, fish, shrimp, stuffed crab, stuffed shrimp and... More

We ordered the alligator and the boudin ball for apps. They were very good. The dipping sauce wasn't very good tho. Stuffed Tilapia and the Rib eye were very good as well. I though for the price we should have gotten a salad or vegetable with dinner too.

Some seafood dishes are just okay; the taste is average at best. I would recommend a grilled or broiled selection. The hamburger and fried was good. Atmosphere is nice for family or business.

I travel on business and this was my first trip to Hammond, LA. I had recently seen Don's Seafood and Steak House on the Food Network and was very excited to see they had a location in Hammond. They did not disappoint! Food was fresh and excellent. Also felt very welcome by the "locals" in the bar area. I would... More
