Although this is best for oysters most of the food that I have tried is very good. As most restaurants int he area it is loud and there is no quiet area to relax and visit.

We had the Eggplant Abbeville, two perfectly cooked and crispy eggplant medallions smothered with jumbo lump crabmeat with a wonderful sauce, just divine. Then we had the 6oz filet mignon with garlic shrimp on top. Best filet mignon I ever had, the most tender and tasty.

This restaurant feels like a tourist trap. Deep in rice and cajun country cooking they are making the mistake of offering non cajun specials. Oysters were fine served chilled with horseradish and crackers, boudin balls seemed commercial not home made and gumbo chicken and sausage was fine. Didnt much like the tshirts the young waitresses were wearing which says shuck... More

Wonderful fare in cozy atmosphere. Don't miss the alligator bites! The seafood fettuccini serving is enough for two.

Restaurant and bar. We sat in the bar to hear a young man we'd met outside sing and play his guitar. Eggplant rounds topped were topped with beautiful fresh crab. Oysters Rockerfeller were just right. Serious seafood in a pleasant but unpretentious place.

We had lunch here eight years ago and it was great. Wanting to try all three of our favorites in Abbeville we had supper at Dupuy's on what we thought would be a slow night. Boy, were we wrong. When the hostess handed me a "buzzer" i knew this place had changed. We opted to wait in the bar (that... More

Yum!! The food here doesn't disappoint me on each visit. We visit Lafayette area at least once a year to eat, dance and enjoy the friendly people. Dupuy's is always a priority visit. My husband eats the raw oysters and I vary my choices. I suggest you try them. It must be good it's been around for 100 plus years.

While Dupuy's is known for the best seafood, the ribeye steak is one of the best you will have anywhere! Last visit I could not resist the eggplant and lump crab appetizer, but my son ordered a steak and it was amazing. Seasoned perfectly, grilled exactly as ordered,and could not have been better. Service is second to none and the... More

Outstanding eggplant abbeville appetizer. And the Friday lunch special was fantastic. The waitress recommended these items and she was spot on. The service was also great.

WHEW! Where do I start. I've been visiting Dupuy's for over thirty years [probably 45 but I don't want to do the math]. A MUST when visiting Historic Downtown Abbeville. The best, freshest, perfect oysters in town. The already ice-cold beer is served in super frosty mugs. You make your own dipping sauce for your raw oysters from an array... More
