We were very dissappointed when researched restaurants in Lafayette, LA. We always want to try local restaurants when we travel and work hard to verifiy the information before we visit. We dressed up,added the restaurant to our navigation and set up to go to the downtown Don's Seafood for dinner. There website posted a closing time of 9 pm so we rushed to get there and arrived at 8:20 thinking this would be great and when we arrived were glad to see the lite up billboard outside posted 9:30. We parked in the crowded parking lot and went to the door and it was locked. I noticed the exit door was ajar so I opened it told the hostess that something was wrong with the door, I couldn't get it open. She said they were closed. I said the billboard posted 9:30 closing. She said the door had a 9 pm closing. Regardless it was 8:20. She said we closed early because it was slow. We own 27 businesses throughout the US and would never close our store because it was slow when we have advertised business hours. IF YOU DECIDE TO TRY IT. CALL FIRST BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY UNDEPENDABLE. THEN BECAUSE IT WAS GETTING TOO LATE AFTER DRIVING DOWNTOWN EVERYTHING ELSE WAS CLOSED. I tried to contact the management on the Don's website, but I guess they don't care about customer feedback because there was no place to give feedback. Luckily after driving for another 45 minutes we found a Chili's and the food and service was great! They lost a future customer as we travel through LA to our Florida condo a few times a year and always like to have a great dinner as a treat to wind down after driving all day!
