Description: 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.

As locals, we have many good choices in the surrounding area for seafood. But we find ourselves returning to Don's time and again. Authentic LA seafood prepared with consistency. It is a little pricey and can be crowded on certain nights, but we enjoy it. I recommend.

Just off I-12 in Hammond, Louisiana - this is the seafood restaurant where the locals eat. The seafood is excellent. They have redecorated the place in the last couple of years so it has more than the plain tables and chairs that it had for years. Try the gumbo and the fried catfish.

I have only given this place one chance but the grilled shrimp were basically tasteless except for the fact that they were super salty. Don't personally know anyone who loves this place

We stopped at this restaurant leaving New Orleans last week. The service was so-so. After we placed our drink orders, it took a long time to receive the drinks. It took even longer to receive the appetizers. The food was okay...a little bland for my taste. I guess this is the best Hammond has to offer. I've tasted better, but I've also tasted worst. Good thing I was just passing through.
