I'm a born and raised New Orleanian and an avid seafood eater for over thirty years. Not only was the fried shrimp and catfish platter appalling (muddy and simply not fresh), the seafood gumbo is the saltiest dish I have eaten this year. Listen, I'm the type of guy who puts extra salt on my fries, but their seafood gumbo was beyond eatable. Service was below mediocre -- exceedingly slow (despite the few people in for lunch), and the food was served cold. All this served on soggy fries? All this for the price? I don't think so. Do yourself a favor, and if you're still on Veterans Blvd, stop by Acme Oyster House. It's only a 10 minute drive from Don's. Acme knows seafood; something's fishy at Don's -- literally.
