My husband and I both had a combination platter, which was a 1/2 order of fried crawfish tails and 1/2 order crawfish Étouffée. It was $17.99 each. It was a ton of food for the price. It was absolutely amazing. We also ordered an order...More

Great seafood at a great price. The crawfish bisque is prepared the way your Mama used to make it. Crabcakes are fried just right. Seafood gumbo has a rich dark roux and is loaded with seafood. I'm not a big oyster fan but, my husband...More

Nice family dining, clean, with friendly staff. Authentic Cajun cuisine. I didn't care for the flavor of the etouffe, but that is probably because I'm not used to real Cajun food. The hush puppies were out of this world delicious! Nice and spicy - they...More

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.
