We visited Don's on a Saturday night and would definitely go again! Three had seafood and one had chicken ravioli. We shared a bread pudding for dessert. Delicious food, friendly atmosphere, fantastic service! Aaron was our waiter and did a superb job! Buy one get one free drinks were an unexpected bonus!

This was our second visit with the chain, but first at this location and I wish we had kept on driving by!! The greeting we received walking in the door was the only good thing that I can remember. The service was slow and the lunch rush was definitely over; both of our orders were wrong and the second remake... More

Love the seafood platter, the appetizers are solid as well. A couple cold ones and some really good seafood always makes for a great night.

We've been to several Don's restaurants. At this Don's, the food and the service was very good. I had boiled shrimp, large and all you can eat. It came with a salad and corn and red potatoes. My wife had Grouper, covered with a shrimp sauce. We split desert, a large fudge brownie with a generous helping of ice cream.

We stopped for lunch and were pleasantly surprised it was not real busy. I had just had a minor medical procedure so I needed something not real greasy - so! We had fried crab claws for an appetizer LOL. They were delicious and they are served with an In house sauce that was ketchup, something sweet and horseradish. Very good.... More

Flight to New Orleans then about an hour drive to Hammond. Looking for dinner and front desk clerk recommends Don's. Good choice! Local joint, in the best sense, with good service and great seafood. The ambiance is casual with great large retro photos on the walls. I'm seated promptly with a friendly greeting. My server, Rachel, is prompt and professional.... More

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, Baton Rouge, Denham Springs, Gonzales, Hammond, Covington and Metairie.
