Disappointed with our visit - entrees were over cooked and tasteless. I ordered blackened red fish - the fish was severely burned on bottom and green beans were over cooked mush. My wife had the crab platter - every thing was over cooked. Even the...More

Everything from the gator tail, fresh garlic bread, shrimp, catfish, shrimp Étouffée, was delicious. We finished our meal sharing the brownie explosion and we wish we would have gotten four instead of one to share. Great off the highway stop...so glad we turned left instead...More

Stopped in denham springs on our way to Florida. Food was great. We shared a plate of shrimp and catfish, boudain balls, a cup of seafood gumbo and topped it off with bread pudding. Our waitress Ash was terrific.

Talk about good seafood! We were just passing through, driving from Charleston SC to Houston, and found Don's. I had the seafood plate (fried). It was almost too much for one person! The seafood was fresh and coated with a light cornmeal dredge which gave...More

Some of the best Cajun food I've ever had. Seafood gumbo is tasty as is the Crawfish etouffee. Would definitely stop in again when in the area.

Stopped on the way back to Texas. The gumbo was so good, we ordered a 2nd bowl! Everything we ordered was great! Shrimp etouffee, fried shrimp, broiled shrimp, catfish and crawfish etouffee were all on point! Also, the service was quick and very friendly.

What is a dessert code? Did the others misread or do I not know what that means? Also, I didn't see a patio, but I would call the establishment to be sure. Unless it's a service dog, I doubt that they would let you bring it. More

DON'S SEAFOOD More Than Eighty Years of Exceptional Seafood South Louisiana locals and visitors have been drawn to DON'S authentic Cajun cuisine for more than 80 years. Menu selections including traditional Landry family recipes, and more recent original creations like Zydeco Shrimp, are well worth repeat visits. Many stop in daily for oysters on the half shell or boiled crawfish in season. DON'S bartenders serve Signature Old Fashioned cocktails alongside the newest specialty drinks, many made with Louisiana products. DON'S SEAFOOD began in 1934, when Don Landry opened his first restaurant and bar in downtown Lafayette with $400 borrowed from his uncle. Prohibition had just been lifted and at only 24 years old, he envisioned serving drinks and offering a simple menu featuring fresh local seafood. Four generations later, the Landry family has expanded that humble beginning into what would eventually become the DON'S SEAFOOD of today. Continuing the tradition, the Landry family still owns and operates each location. An extensive menu of original South Louisiana Cajun family recipes, the freshest Gulf seafood and sizzling steaks is offered. Each location boasts a unique Acadiana-inspired décor, all have a full-service bar and grill, perfect for casual diners or sports enthusiasts. Every DON'S SEAFOOD grill features an open charbroiler where diners can watch exclusive dishes being prepared like DON'S Original Jacked Up Oysters loaded with bacon, jalapenos and pepper jack cheese. Whether you're just passing through South Louisiana or live right around the corner, you'll find a DON'S SEAFOOD location near you in Lafayette, Denham Springs, Gonzales, Hammond, Covington and Metairie.
